Viking’s latest express sport fishing yacht, the 44 Open set to premiere at FLIBS 2017 on 1-5 November 2017, not only appeals to families ready to take the next step into the Viking lifestyle, it’s also a logical choice for owners of outboard-powered center console boats looking for more comfort, conveniences and weather protection. Thanks to its efficient use of space and larger-boat amenities, the 44 Open yacht also is perfect for owners upgrading from smaller fishing boats into Viking’s world of experience, quality and performance.
The command deck of the 44 Open sport fishing yacht shares many of the practical and notable aspects of its larger siblings, including the signature centerline forward helm station on a raised platform for enhanced visibility. A table accompanies a four-person L-shaped lounge (with storage underneath) outfitted with comfortable padded seating.
The 119-square-foot cockpit is tournament-ready with flush rod holders, a transom live well, and a transom door with a lift gate, tackle stowage, step-box coolers and in-deck fish and stowage wells. Guests can take in the fishing action from the observation mezzanine’s aft-facing lounge seating (which has freezer storage underneath).
As usual, luxurious accommodations and staterooms with all the amenities are there to make your cruising experience a comfortable one.
