Project: Viking 38 Billfish

Viking is proud to announce the addition of the new 38 Billfish, an evolution of the highly successful 37 Billfish and another example of the New Jersey mission to build a better boat every day.  The 38 Billfish was designed and built with the same DNA as its predecessor, as owner/operator vessel, it offer simplicity and ease of maintenance, serving as ready-to-go fishing machines as well as versatile cruising boats with reliable inboard diesel power.  Like her convertible brethren, the 38 Billfish’s flybridge is designed with a tournament-style center console walk-around helm. Two helm chairs are optional. The 38 Billfish’s command deck holds a salon-like living area that includes a port-side U-shaped dinette and a fiberglass hi-lo table. The cockpit at ten square meters is the largest in its class, with mezzanine seating. Below, there’s a large forward stateroom available with either a single queen bed or optional crossover bunks and two hanging lockers; an L-shaped galley; and a head with enclosed shower. The Viking 38 Billfish will be powered by twin Cummins 550hp with line shaft propulsion, and a fuel capacity of 1741 liters.  Engine are the same as the 37 so speed should be more or less similar, while fuel capacity in the new 38 has increased by just over seventy liters.  The 38 Billfish will make her debut at the Viking VIP private show in Riviera Beach, Florida, February 1st, followed with a World debut at the Miami boat show.
