48 Viking Yachts Convertible
Building on the success of the 46 Convertible, the larger cockpit of the Viking 48 Convertible provides space under the sole for a Seakeeper gyrostablizer system. The 48 is a striking addition to the Viking product lineup with attractive styling and an impressive three stateroom layout featuring teak or walnut joinery depending upon the owner’s selection. The opulent interior provides the luxuries one might expect in a midsize motoryacht. Taking advantage of the wide 17-foot beam, the salon boasts an L-shape lounge and cocktail table to starboard, an inviting dinette to port, and peninsula galley forward with a raised bar top, under-counter refrigeration, microwave/convection oven and ample stowage behind the maplelined cabinets. There are three staterooms and two full heads on the lower level including an amidships master with walkaround queen berth and two guest staterooms with upper/lower berths. A washer/dryer is located at the foot of the companionway stairs. The 130-square-foot cockpit features a bait prep station, freezer and in-deck fish box. One of the stowage bins flanking the fish box can be configured as a livewell.

The Viking Yacht Brand
Viking Yachts was founded by brothers Bob and Bill Healey in 1964 when they bought Peterson-Viking Builders, a small, struggling New Jersey builder of 37′, wooden sportfishing Yachts. Those humble beginnings of course led to Viking Yachts, now a world-leader in semi-custom fiberglass yacht production with over 4,000 Viking sportfish and motoryachts delivered. With Bob Healey still at the company helm as Chief Executive Officer and deal maker, and Bill as company President, chief Yachtbuilder and head of Viking Yacht’s in-house design and engineering teams, this family-owned and managed business is thriving. Viking Yacht Company builds over 100 high-end sportfishing yachts, from 45′ to 82′ each year. Viking Yachts’s order sheet is full for the next 12 months, depending on the model, with sales limited only by production capacity. With 1,400 employees building yachts in Viking’s state-of-the-art, 600,000 square-feet, waterfront-manufacturing facility, business has never been better, and expansion plans are under way to increase production of its largest models.
Viking Yachts Today is the preeminent brand in luxury sportsfishing yachts, universally recognized for their performance, tournament pedigree, styling and lavish comforts. For generations, Viking Yachts has celebrated the sea by creating some of the world’s finest convertible yachts, enclosed bridge yachts and open yachts.
Viking Yachts set the standard for excellence; then constantly explore advancements in design, craftsmanship and performance. The company’s exacting standards are reflected in their legendary manufacturing capabilities. To assure optimal quality, Viking Yachts closely scrutinizes every detail of the building process from initial design to finished yacht. In fact, they produce 90 percent of each Yacht in their 810,000 square-foot manufacturing facility on the Bass River near Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The company operates a service center in Riviera Beach, Florida, near the Palm Beach inlet, which handles warranty, fiberglass and running gear repairs. Staffed by factory-trained professionals, Viking Yachts is the only manufacturer to provide its owners with a convenient satellite facility.
Family owned and operated, brothers Bob and Bill Healey founded Viking Yachts in 1964. Their impact extends well beyond the company. The brothers have been recognized by their peers and inducted into the National Marine Manufacturers Association Hall of Fame for their selfless contributions to the entire recreational marine industry. In addition, they are instrumental in the leadership of The Recreational Fishing Alliance, a national, grassroots political action organization representing recreational fishermen and the recreational fishing industry on marine fisheries issues.
