New Model: Viking 42 SC

I can start this post in many ways, but following Viking a lot in the past years, never would have thought that one of its models is a Sport Cruiser.  But as they say we have a first for many things in life.  The Viking 42 SC is as the model initials say a sport cruiser, build on the 42 platform which with this latest entry features four different distinct models, the other three being Open, ST, and Convertible. The 42 SC see three part covered enclosed hard-top is similar in many regards to the model which preceded it by a couple of months the ST, that is minus the fishing platform and features a more social  outside.  Below the 42 SC shows Viking versatility offering not two but three different layout choices from two or three cabins, and single or twin shower heads options.  Yes the Viking 42 SC is a sport cruiser for those that like the masculine looks and lines of a sportfish, and fishing is a rare thing for them. I know there is many of these nowadays.
