The Viking 48 Convertible excels both as a cruising yacht for the family and friends, and a sportfisher that’s got the goods to win big on the tournament circuit. The boat is big enough to hold three staterooms and two heads, but still sized right for two-person operation and maintenance. In addition to the Convertible, Viking‘s fleet of 48s includes the 48 Sport Coupe, 48 Sport Tower and 48 Open models. 
The optional freestanding teak rocket launcher, which is mounted to a standard laminated backing plate, holds six rods. With its optional Ultraleather-covered cushions and pillows, guests can take in the fishing action in comfort on the observation mezzanine settee. Ice storage is provided under the seat and there’s an insulated storage locker under the mezzanine deck.
The captain has excellent visibility from the 48‘s center console helm, which also gives you 360-degree walkaround access. The console’s forward electronics panel can hold two or three multi-function displays depending on their size. Dual radio lockers flank an optional Release Marine teak helm pod. Flanking lounges and additional seating forward of the helm keeps guests comfortable. Our subsidiary, Atlantic Marine Electronics, will provide custom installations for every Viking customer ensuring turnkey delivery.

Hungry? The galley has everything you and your family or fishing team need for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Amenities include a microwave/convection oven, an electric cooktop, an under counter drawer-style refrigerator and freezer with varnished teak faces, a deep stainless-steel sink, and storage galore. There’s ample room for food preparation on the standard granite counters (Cambria is optional).

The 48 Convertible has two full heads with separate showers, Amtico flooring and teak doors. The guest head is aft on the port side ensuring privacy for the staterooms. The master head (shown here) is forward of the queen-size bed. Granite tops the vanity, which has round edges and satin nickel hardware.

There’s an expansive storage area and two drawers below the queen-size walkaround bed. Teak and maple-lined hanging lockers, teak storage cabinets port and starboard of the bed, overhead LED lighting with dimmer, a 28-inch flat-screen TV, a stereo, and DVD round out the amenities.
Looking to get aboard the 48 Convertible? Please contact your Viking dealer to schedule a sea trial, and see for yourself why this boat is so popular for both cruising, fishing or a combination of the two. Meanwhile, take a virtual tour here
