2018 Viking 68 Convertible
Viking continues its dominance of the sportfishing yacht industry with the introduction of the Viking 68, a four-stateroom blue-water convertible with unmatched performance, bulletproof construction, luxury interior accommodations and advanced propulsion and boat-control technologies.
“This boat is going to be a big hit,” says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. “We were able to bring some of the attributes of our larger models to the 68 while maintaining the efficiencies of a smaller sportfishing boat.”
The 68 C is designed and engineered to function equally as well as a tournament-ready offshore runner and a cruising yacht with all the conveniences and technology that you’ve come to expect from Viking.
The optional Seakeeper gyro stabilizer heightens the level of comfort during both fishing and cruising activities. Anglers do battle in a 176-square foot cockpit, while guests can watch from an air-conditioned observation mezzanine.
Running on Viking’s proven hull shape with a 12.1-degree transom deadrise, this beautiful battlewagon delivers a soft ride in rough seas, with a 35-knot cruising speed and a top end approaching 40-plus knots. An aggressively raked stem, gently sloping sheer, swept-back black-masked windshield and flying bridge brow present a powerful yet elegant picture.
2018 Viking 44 Open
Viking’s reputation for building high performance express models maintains its enviable industry leadership with the announcement of the newest entry, the 44 Open. By their design, express boats cater to the owner/operator who enjoys his time aboard with family and friends and is content to fish hard on Saturdays and yet be equally accommodating when the family prefers to take to the water for a relaxing cruise. Whatever the game, the new Viking 44 scores points handily and is ready to rack up nautical miles while delivering fishability, accommodations, handling and performance.
2018 Viking 52 Open
Viking’s open models are popular choices for any number of on the water activities including cruising, diving and sportfishing. One of the more attractive benefits for many enthusiasts is that the helm is close to the cockpit, making it the perfect choice for the owner/operator who does not have a crew or simply likes to be in constant contact with the action in the cockpit.
