The Viking View – Everybody Wants Some
Make plans to see this stunner at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. This 48 Convertible, along with a fleet of industry-leading vessels from the Viking Yacht Company and Valhalla Boatworks, will be front and center at Bahia Mar’s D-Dock. Our 48 is powered with a pair of 1200 MHP MAN V8 diesels and features a Seakeeper for comfort as well as a luxurious, upgraded interior and a rigged-out cockpit. The Fort Lauderdale Show runs from Wednesday, October 28 through Sunday, November 1.
In this exclusive video, Ryan Higgins from Valhalla Boatworks and Viking Yachts highlights our new V-46 center console’s fishing features, equipment and overall capabilities. From fish boxes and live wells to teaser reels and rod storage, Ryan covers every aspect of the boat’s next-level fishability.
Say hello to Juan Lazaro, a Lead Painter in Exterior Trim, the department where the finishing touches are completed on our yachts. Juan, who began working at Viking in 2005, deftly applies taping to prepare for the painting of a boot stripe on a 58 Convertible (left). “It takes a steady hand and good concentration,” says Juan. You can sometimes find Juan sketching yachts and his fellow boatbuilders during lunch break. “I love to draw. It runs in the family.”
