2015 Viking Yachts Express
The Viking 42 Open is big on accommodations and performance. It combines the efficiency and maneuverability of the Cummins/Zeus pod drive system with Vikings design mastery in both fishing layout and interior design.
Spacious and well appointed, this two stateroom boat is best in class. Down a set of teak steps to the salon and galley, youll findthe same attention to detail found aboard larger Vikings with hand-finished high-gloss teak joinery throughout, ample maple-lined stowage cabinetry, a polished Corian countertop, and premium appliances.
The forward air-conditioned master stateroom is enhanced with a queen-size berth and private access to the head with a fiberglass shower stall. A second air-conditioned stateroom with 6 ft. 3 in. headroom is aft beneath the command deck with large side-by-side berths, a night table, and twin locker stowage.
Just steps away from the cockpit, the command bridge is versatile and attractive with a fiberglass wraparound windshield providing excellent visibility at the center console helm. Single lever electronic controls are silky smooth and engage effortlessly. A recessed compartment to starboard, houses the Zeus joy-stick control which intuitively connects you to the engines for uncanny maneuverability.
The split observation mezzanine in the 120 square-foot cockpit conceals insulated stowage compartments beneath the cushions. Quick engine access is provided through a hatch on the command deck, and via a command deck hydraulic lift for total accessibility from the cockpit. Port and starboard molded-in insulated fish boxes and a walk-through transom door with lift gate are standard.
Vessel equipped with Palm Beach Tuna Tower and upgraded Cummins/Zeus Pod 600hp engines.
