Viking 44 Open
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube
Our new 44 Open not only appeals to families ready to take the next step into the Viking lifestyle, it’s also a logical choice for owners of outboard-powered center console boats looking for more comfort, conveniences and weather protection.

Because of its efficient use of space and larger-boat  amenities, the 44 O also gives seasoned owners who are looking to downsize the opportunity to continue experiencing Viking quality and performance.
The command deck of the 44 Open shares many of the practical and notable aspects of its larger siblings, including our signature centerline forward helm station on a raised platform for enhanced visibility. A table accompanies a four-person L-shaped lounge (with storage underneath) outfitted with comfortable padded seating. The port console holds refrigeration and stowage that includes tackle drawers. 
Just steps away from the command deck, the 119-square-foot cockpit is tournament-ready with flush rod holders, a transom live well, and a transom door with a lift gate, tackle stowage, step-box coolers and in-deck fish and stowage wells. Guests can take in the fishing action from the observation mezzanine’s aft-facing lounge seating (which has freezer storage underneath).  
The starboard-side galley includes teak cabinetry, expansive Corian countertops, an electric range, separate under-counter refrigerator and freezer units and a microwave/convection oven. Other notable amenities include a stereo system with a 24-inch flat screen TV.
A sliding companionway door and a large set of stairs with a starboard-side vertical handrail lead to the climate-controlled salon. With its 16 ft. 4 in. beam, the widest of any boat in this class, the salon is a spacious social area for relaxing and entertaining.
In the climate-controlled forward master stateroom, the island queen bed with mattress has a lift-up top with gas pistons and maple-lined storage underneath. Additional storage includes teak cabinetry and a maple-lined hanging locker. 
Left: A one-piece molded Corian countertop with rounded edges, a sink with satin nickel faucet and custom Amtico flooring are just some of the highlights in the head. Right: With its two-person berth, the aft guest stateroom can accommodate another couple and makes for a nice hideaway for the kids.
 
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is less than a month away, so make plans to come and see the 44 Open, which will be part of Viking‘s 15-vessel display at the November 1-5 event. For more information, please contact your authorized Viking dealer.

With her raked bow, swept-back wraparound windshield and gently sloping sheer, the 44 Open presents a picture of strength and style. Built at Viking Mullica, the 44 Open is now being finished at Viking Headquarters in New Gretna, New Jersey.
The gin-clear windshield gives the captain maximum visibility from the raised center helm, which features a custom teak helm pod. Release Marine helm and flanking companion seats will be mounted on the command deck.
A table will accompany a four-person L-shaped lounge that will be outfitted with comfortable padded seating. The port console holds refrigeration with an ice maker and stowage. A wide, easily accessible port companionway leads to the salon, galley, two staterooms and head.
The starboard-side galley, which sits opposite an L-shaped lounge with a dinette table, includes teak cabinetry with meticulous joinery and fit and finish, expansive bone-color Corian countertops, an electric range, separate under-counter refrigerator and freezer units and a microwave/convection oven.  
The engineroom, lazarette, forward bilge and anchor locker are all painted with bright white Awlgrip for maximum visibility and easier maintenance. A pair of state-of-the-art 800-hp six-cylinder inline MAN diesels power the 44 Open.
 
The boat will be delivered to Atlantic City, New Jersey, for our Annual Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event, September 11-13. Please contact Viking‘s Gina Waldron or your authorized Viking dealer for more information.
