The diversity of our fleet is a sign of our expertise and experience as boatbuilders and designers. It’s also a telling factor in the strong connection we have with our owners, which gives us insight into what they want in a recreational boat.
The ability to create multiple models with an array of features and benefits for various purposes is particularly clear when you examine the boats we offer from 46 to 48 feet. We have a half dozen different models within just 3 feet of LOA (four Vikings, a Billfish and a Valhalla Boatworks center console). Our in-house design, engineering and production give us the freedom to create yachts that directly address the needs and desires of our owners. And technology is instrumental to that creativity. Above, one of our five-axis CNC routers carves the plug of the Valhalla 46’s transom bustle.
We have four different models at 48 feet – the 48 Convertible, 48 Open, 48 Sport Coupe and 48 Sport Tower. The convertible (above) is a three-stateroom fish-and-cruise dynamo with all the accommodations, engineering and design traits of larger Vikings. The 48 Open’s name speaks for itself, with one contiguous open command deck and cockpit area that keeps everyone in the action.
The 48 Sport Tower (above) combines all the benefits of an express yacht with the heightened fishability that a Palm Beach Towers tuna tower brings to the mix. The Sport Coupe design is sophisticated and refined, with a sleek low profile that looks cool and knows how to have fun. All four models utilize the same tournament-ready cockpit.
With the Billfish Series, Viking has created a niche within a niche. Their appeal lies within their straightforward, fish-focused design that stresses ease of operation and maintenance while boasting a distinct aesthetic style that’s as recognizable as a Viking convertible. We just happen to have one at 46 feet. The 46 BF is fast (nearly 40 knots), sporty, versatile and comfortable. It’s been a huge hit in places like Los Suenos, Cabo and other red-hot fisheries.
Now we come to our latest offering in this size range – the Valhalla 46. This premium high-performance center console has opened up new worlds for our owners, with its 360-degree fishability, two rows of air-conditioned seating, industry-best engineering and quality, and drop-dead gorgeous looks. Like her stablemates, the V-46 can be used as a tournament fishing boat, a sporty day cruiser, or a tender to a mothership Viking. All six of these models have their own unique benefits, uses and qualities but they also have one thing in common: They’re all owner/operator boats that are easy to run and maintain.
