Improve-it = Viking 50 Convertible

In recent years we have seen many production builders offering a more semi custom production even in smaller sub eighty feet sizes.  One such example come from Viking who is offering a fiberglass staircase to the flying bridge. The impetus for the staircase came about when a long time Viking customer requested a solution for a family member who found climbing the standard aluminum bridge ladder a challenge while the boat was under way. Viking’s design and engineering group wasted no time in the development of a fiberglass staircase, which now the companies offers on new models 50 feet and above. The fiberglass staircase is ergonomically designed to offer comfort and security under way and at the dock, and obviously making way up the bridge easy.  This Viking 50 Convertible with the fiberglass staircase requires only a minor change in the salon cabinetry near the doorway and in the flying bridge deck opening.
