Projects: Viking 54 Open, Viking 54 Sport Tower

Viking proudly introduces the new 54 Open O, and 54 Sport Tower ST. Joining the new award-winning 54 Convertible C, these express sportfish yachts amplifies Viking’s dominance in the mid-size sportfishing market. With its aggressive entry, raked stem, one-piece wraparound windshield and Palm Beach Towers hardtop and tuna tower, the 54 Open presents a striking profile while excelling as a stylish fish-and-cruise Viking thoroughbred. The new models utilize the same advanced hull design of the 54 Convertible, which has been a smash hit from Viking since its premiere at the 2020 Fort Lauderdale boat sow where it captured the Best of Show Award. The 54 Sport Tower features a three-sided fiberglass deckhouse, with an optional solid aft bulkhead and a PBT tuna tower. The Open, and Sport Tower share cockpit and command deck layouts, providing an excellent use of space for fishing, diving, cruising and entertaining. The 14 square meters cockpit boasts twin mezzanine seating with cooler storage below, along with drink coolers, in-deck fish and storage boxes, a transom live well and a transom door with liftgate. The command deck gives you instant access to the cockpit. The centreline helm, with its pedestal seat on a raised platform, provides excellent visibility and is complemented by double port and single starboard companion seating. Aft of the helm, there is a convergence of practical and convenience features, including two lounges, a dinette, refrigeration and tackle and gear storage compartments. Below, the five meters plus of beam offers volumes of interior space including a choice of two- or three-stateroom layouts. With either, the forward master stateroom is large and fitted with a queen-size bed, plenty of storage behind the walnut cabinetry and served with a private head. Additional staterooms are found on the port side, each with upper and lower berths. The head has private access in the two-stateroom layout, while guests share the head in the three-stateroom plan. Midship on the starboard side is a well-appointed galley with a full appliance package, walnut cabinetry, an engineered stone countertop and under-counter refrigeration/freezer units with varnished walnut faces. Opposite the galley in the two-stateroom model is an L-shaped lounge and table. The three-stateroom version utilizes booth seating. Standard power is twin Man 1400hp engines with optional 1550hp available.  Hull No. 1 will be a Sport Tower model which will be powered with the optional Man 1550hp engines. The series makes its world premiere at the 2021 Fort Lauderdale boat show  in end Octobler with a 54 Sport Tower, and is also to be joined by a more sport yacht no tower out-riggers 54 Sport Coupe version.
