The Viking View – 52 For You
Viking is well known for its ability to utilize a certain hull to create different models that cater to various needs of its owners. The 52, 48 and 44 are all offered in four different versions – convertible, open, sport coupe and sport tower. In this Viking View, we focus on the 52, a mid-sized fishing-and-cruising dynamo. The above video of the 52 Sport Tower showcases the refined hull design that all four 52 models share. The running surface forces water to break aft of the windshield for an incredibly smooth dry ride with excellent visibility.
The 52 ST features a molded fiberglass deckhouse that encloses the command deck and a Palm Beach Towers (PBT) tuna tower. The 52 O has an open command deck with a wraparound windshield. This model is often fitted with a hardtop and PBT tower. In the above video, the captain commands this 52 Open from the tower helm. Talk about clear sightlines!
The Sport Tower and Open share the same cockpit, command deck and cabin layout, with a fully appointed galley and dining area as well as three staterooms and two heads. Take a closer look in the above virtual tour of the 52 ST. These models are also offered with a two-stateroom layout.
The Viking 52 Convertible continues to dominate the industry as the best convertible sportfisherman in its class, with unmatched levels of performance, engineering, fishability, style and comfort. Our shipwrights will soon deliver hull number 36, proof of the model’s popularity as a family cruising and fishing yacht and tournament contender.
The 52 C‘s salon provides three distinct gathering areas: a lounge to starboard with L-shaped seating and storage underneath, a free-standing galley island with engineered-stone countertop and bar stools, and a port-side dinette with ample seating and table with high-gloss mappa burl finish.
