The V Report – Razor-sharp Focus
In less than 18 months, Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) has established itself as one of the top-flight high-performance center console builders in the world. Production of the V-33, V-37 and V-41 is humming right along thanks to the resilient efforts and razor-sharp focus of our team of managers and shipwrights at Viking Mullica where the V Series is built. Viking Mullica’s four-building 88,000-square-foot facility contains manufacturing lines and crews for each Valhalla model. Shown above are the V-33 and V-37 lines, where you can see foremen (red shirts), lead men (yellow shirts) and boatbuilders positioned throughout the various stages of the build process.
We’ve got our eye on this Valhalla, a highly personalized V-37 with a two-tone Haze Grey over black hull and Whisper Grey deck liner, coaming, console, helm seating module, in-deck fish boxes (and lids) and hardtop. The grey is balanced strategically with black components and accents throughout that include the powder-coated hardtop frame and bowrail, Mercury Verado 400s, rubrail and lower guard rail, and radar dome and antennas. There’s a heckuva lot more to talk about – stay tuned for more pics.
Debuting a trio of center consoles simultaneously in the sweet spot of the market has been a proven success for VBW, with high interest in all three models of the V Series. By the summer’s end, we will have delivered close to 75 Valhallas. Here’s another Valhalla, a V-41, with a two-tone hull (Haze Grey over Snow White) and Mercury power. The boat was brought to our Mullica River docks for a series of sea trials this week.
She’ll be trailered to our Riviera Beach, Florida, facility to receive a custom Palm Beach Towers gap tower before being delivered to a Valhalla Boat Sales South customer. Among other things, this V-41 features three Llebroc Billfish Helm Chairs with armrests, electric slides and flip-up bolsters. The main color for the premium Sunbrella Horizon upholstery is a Capriccio Cloud with Textil Cadet Grey insets and Capriccio Grey piping. Sweet.
