Project: Viking 48 Open

One platform and loads of different models coming from it, as Viking did with the 42 and 52, the same formula is used again on the new 48 series which now is added with the new Open project set to launch later on this year. The fourth 48 model series, the 48 Open distinct itself for being an open express type sport-fish with large exterior areas, differing from the SC and ST model for having a one peace hard top available as option.  The split level exterior indeed is huge and the free fish battle aft deck is added with a raised cockpit offering two large L-shape dinette's a central helm station, and two forward looking passenger seats to the sides. Below the 48 Open offers a four berth accommodation, with a forward owners stateroom, bunk twin guest cabin, L-shape dinette to starboard, with a galley and shower head to port side.  Power is from twin Man 1200hp which give speeds above 35 knots and cruise at around 30 knots.
