42 Viking Yachts Open
Much like Viking’s larger models, the popular Viking 42 Open shines as a tournament-ready fishing vessel that also features the creature comforts needed for an enjoyable overnight or long weekend cruise.
The innovation and versatility of the Viking 42 Open have been widely praised in boating circles. Saltwater Sportsman said “this boat’s practical, efficient layout and nimble maneuverability, with a pair of Cummins MerCruiser Zeus drives, make it something special.” Boating Magazine loved its classic lines and crisp ride. Yachting said the 42 Open delivers versatility and durability in a small package. And Power and Motoryacht described the Viking 42 Open as a fast, fun superperformer, finely engineered with standards galore. They punctuated that by saying “she’s poetry in motion.”
A few minutes aboard the Viking 42 Open and you’ll quickly see why so many boating experts love it. The vessel’s innovative pod propulsion system, allowing the captain to steer the boat using a joystick, provides great maneuverability for when you’re steering out of a tight slip or working a hooked tuna in blue water. The 42 Open offers great visibility from the center console with its large wraparound windshield. This fishing boat trolls quietly, and its spacious cockpit is outfitted for hardcore tournament fishing, with a molded-in livewell, two large in-deck insulated fish boxes, generous dedicated tackle storage and much more.
Below deck are surprisingly spacious living quarters, thanks largely to the pod propulsion system that relocates the engines farther aft. Viking offers two- and three-stateroom layouts with the 40 Open, featuring high-gloss teak interior, Corian countertops, galley and many yacht-like comforts that make this vessel a fun cruiser when you’re not hunting prey.
