American builder Viking designed an all new hull and running surface for its Viking 48 Convertible. This paid off, as the Viking 46C stands out from the competition with its performance that provides a soft and dry ride, or as Viking calls it “a big boat ride in an overall modest-size package.” This is a theme throughout the Viking 48C, with big boat features abounding.
The flybridge is designed with both fishing and socialising in mind. Power-assisted hydraulic steering and single-lever electronic engine controls provide responsive handling and excellent control when at the helm. Guests will enjoy the lounge seating, and the insulated drink box can be refrigerated to keep cold drinks and snacks handy up in the flybridge.
Accommodation is for four with two staterooms and two bathrooms. The master has a queen-size, walk-around berth, teak tables, a maple-lined closet and a 22-inch flatscreen TV. Set to port, the guest stateroom has upper and lower berths. There is an option for a laundry room with a stacked washing machine, making this a yacht that’s truly ready to be used for longer trips.
