New Model: Viking 50 Convertible

Presented during the Miami Show is the Viking 50 Convertible, a broad sport fishermen yacht to both tournament and cruising yachtsmen. The outside lines of the new Viking are aggressive with a raked stem to slice through head seas for a comfortable ride offshore, making the new 50 Convertible a winner in it's main environment, the sea. Interior the theme continues for a class leading boat, with a spacious three-stateroom, two-head layout offering generous accommodation, comfort and privacy for six. The master stateroom has a queen-sized walk around berth with an upholstered head board, mattress and lift top, which exposes plenty of stowage below, reading lights, a large maple-lined hanging locker and an entertainment system. The privately accessed head has Amtico vinyl flooring, a teak-faced Corian counter with built-in sink, a fiberglass shower stall with seat and an electric MSD. Port and forward guest staterooms each offer the flexibility of upper and lower berths and share the second head. A laundry center is located adjacent to the companionway steps. The outside cockpit, features 132 square-feet of usable space, packing every element you need to take. Power for the new Viking is latest MAN CRM 1100hp diesels and with a standard fuel load gives 32 knots cruise speeds and top of 36 knots. A more powerful optional with 1360 hp MAN CRM engines also is available to increase the cruise speed to 36 knots and to provide a top end of 40 knots depending upon load and existing conditions.
