2003 Viking Yachts Convertible The Viking 48 Convertibleis yet another example of why Viking so dominates the market for premium, executive-class convertibles. It isnt just beautiful styling that sets her apart from the competition; what makes the Viking 48 special is her redundant engineering, exemplary finish and superior open water performance. Built on a modified-V hull with a wide beam and shallow keel, the interior is big for a 48-footer. The layout is arranged with the galley and dinette forward in the salon and two good size staterooms and two full heads. A washer and dryer is located adjacent to the companionway steps. Varnished teak cabinets, rich designer fabrics and deep pile carpeting are applied throughout the interior. The spacious 130-square-foot cockpit sports a recessed fish box, bait-prep station, and direct access to the spacious engine room. Note that the bridge ladder is positioned over the salon steps to save cockpit space. The entire boat was painted at Viking Yachts in 2014. The bridge is nicely completed with new canvas and cushions also in 2014.
