Viking 42 Convertible January 25th, 2012

Boats Big and Small
Construction of the first Viking 42 Convertible hull is well under way and our shipwrights are busy in the laminating phase with visible progress a daily occurrence. The 42 Convertible will hit the water in late summer and headline many of the early fall boat shows. This model is the first Viking with a Cummins Zeus pod drive system; the
42 Convertible will be joined with an Open express model in the coming months.

While the new 42 will be the smallest boat in our line up, at the other end of the spectrum is the flagship Viking 82 Convertible. Recently, 82001, the first 82 returned to the Viking facility for some Atlantic Marine Electronics’ updates after wintering in Florida. Last summer, the Business spent 12 weeks cruising throughout the Med. Many of the yacht’s adventures were covered in our Shot of the Day feature on, and a complete story of the trip also will appear on our web site soon. In a related topic, hull number 16 of the 82 series is in production.
