New Model: Viking 44 SC

Creating a model within a platform has been a successful path for Viking in it's smaller sub fifteen meters models, and this is continued in the 44 series already available as Convertible and Open models, which share the same hull with uniquely different deck and interior arrangements. The popularity of the 44 has encouraged Viking to expand the range with striking profiles and special features that showcase the New Jersey builder ability to broaden the appeal of this versatile hull.  Using its five-axis profile machine Viking designed and built a plug and a female mold to create a rakish fiberglass deck house module, fully open to the cockpit while incorporating stylish convertible window lines and a roof overhang. Built into finely tool hardtop is a pair of easily accessed rod stowage compartments.  The Viking 44 Sport Coupe has a distinctive New England or Great Lakes flavor for cruising efficacy and includes a choice of a custom fiberglass mast for the radar and other antennas, or a customized radar arch. In the eleven squared meter cockpit, the 44 SC sports the familiar starboard mezzanine seating arrangement of the popular 44 Open. Engine room access is provided with a convenient center line hatch that’s integral with the mezzanine seating. The SC has been engineered for the installation of a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, which brings great stability to the sport cruiser to increase overall comfort.  The command deck includes our signature and tournament-proven center-line forward helm station on a raised platform for enhanced visibility. The console holds a bank of electronics displays, and has space for engine instrumentation and other accessories. Recessed compartments accommodate radios and additional equipment, plus accessory switches and controls.  A sliding companionway door and a large set of stairs with a starboard-side vertical handrail lead to the climate-controlled salon. With its five meter short beam, the widest of any boat in this class, the salon is a spacious social area for relaxing and entertaining. The starboard-side galley, which sits opposite an L-shaped lounge with a dinette table, includes teak cabinetry with meticulous joinery and fit and finish, expansive Corian counter tops, an electric range, separate under-counter refrigerator and freezer units and a microwave/convection oven. Other notable amenities include a stereo system with a flat screen HD TV.  In the forward master stateroom, the island queen bed with mattress has a lift-up top with gas pistons and maple-lined storage underneath. There's also a maple-lined hanging locker. Air conditioning, a 19-inch flat screen television and access to the head and shower round out the standard amenities.  The head has custom Amtico flooring, a one-piece molded Corian countertop with rounded edges and a sink with a satin nickel faucet. With its two-person berth, the aft guest stateroom can accommodate another couple and makes for a nice hideaway for the kids.  Twin Man 800hp diesels serve as the standard propulsion package. The engine-room, lazarette, forward bilge and anchor locker are all painted with Snow White Awlgrip for maximum visibility and easier maintenance. A Delta-T engine-room ventilation system, an oil exchange system and an Onan 13.5 kW E-QD Series generator are just some of the standard mechanical and electrical equipment.
