2023 Viking 48 Conv Sport Fisher
The 48 Convertible has an exterior that is sleek and powerful and the boat makes an impressive statement even resting at the dock. The wraparound black metallic windshield mask, window lines and flying bridge feature treatments reveal how far we have come with this evolutionary theme. The resin infused hull is beamy and carries its breadth farther aft for more interior room and a wider cockpit. The raked entry and forward chine are designed to pierce through head seas and divert spray downward. Convex hull sections add curvature and form to the running surface, while molded running strakes accentuate lateral tracking and maneuverability.
The lush interior is rich in detail with our signature hand-finished teak or walnut joinery depending upon the owner’s selection. Taking advantage of the spacious beam, the salon abounds with stylish appointments throughout the salon with an L-shape lounge and cocktail table, as well as an inviting dinette, which anchor the area for relaxing and entertaining. To starboard the peninsula galley has a raised bar top and is accented with Cambria treatments, under counter refrigeration, a microwave/convection oven and ample stowage behind the maple-lined cabinetry. Overnight accommodations are plush with three staterooms and two heads providing all the comfort and privacy you need for fishing and cruising in style. A laundry center and central vacuum system add sophisticated convenience.
On the flying bridge, the center console helm and flanking lounges are tournament proven and will make the Viking 48 Convertible the envy of anything in its class with its custom navigation and communication systems provided by our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics. Powered with MAN diesels the 48 Convertible will cruise at 30 knots with a top end in the mid 30 knot range depending upon engine selection, load, sea and other environmental factors. Engineroom access is through the observation mezzanine in the 124 square-foot cockpit, which features flush rod holders, a transom fish box, and recessed fish and stowage wells in the nonslip fiberglass sole. A transom door with lift gate, a drink box, a bait cooler and tackle stowage are standard. The lazarette is designed to accommodate a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, which can be installed at the factory or a later date.
