Fish the canyons; dive the Keys; explore the Bahamas; or just punch the throttles and go. The best-in-class Viking 44 Open gives you endless opportunities to make the most of your time on the water with family and friends. And isn’t that what it’s all about?

As a semi-custom builder, we can outfit your boat to completely satisfy your wants and needs. A custom designed and built tuna tower from the Viking subsidiary Palm Beach Towers is a popular choice for avid fishermen and tournament anglers.

With a command deck that puts the captain only a few steps away from the cockpit, the 44 Open is the ideal sportfishing boat for the owner/operator who wants to stay close to the action. With a Costa Clear enclosure, L-shaped starboard lounge with dinette table, air conditioning/heating and other amenities, the area provides a social salon-like space with fantastic views.
Atlantic Marine Electronics, another Viking company, will build and install an A-to-Z package of navigation and communication equipment for turnkey delivery. At the center helm, the captain has 360-degree sightlines. A raised fiberglass console holds a bank of monitors while a starboard radio box with a split lid contains VHF communication equipment, engine start and stop buttons, a remote electronics keypad and other controls, switches and indicators.
Tournament ready, the 119-square-foot cockpit is equipped with ample storage for rods, tackle, bait and the day’s catch. Viking quality is apparent throughout: Rounded coamings and toekick provide increased balance and comfort; large flush scuppers drain the cockpit quickly; and all hatch lids are gasketed and held open with stainless gas pistons.

The starboard-side galley, which sits opposite an L-shaped lounge with a dinette table, includes teak cabinetry with meticulous joinery and fit and finish, expansive Corian countertops, an electric range, separate under-counter refrigerator and freezer units and a microwave/convection oven. A stereo system and a 24-inch flat-screen HD TV round out the notable standard features.

In the forward master stateroom, you can easily access the island queen bed via port and starboard steps. The mattress has a lift-up top with gas pistons and a cavernous maple-lined area for extra pillows, blankets and whatever else needs a home. The first-class accommodations continue in the second aft stateroom, appointed with a double berth, hanging locker and an optional flat-screen TV.

Along with the entire Viking fleet, the 44 Open will be on display at our 23rd annual VIP Boat Show at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida, February 1st and 2nd.
