|Conquering New Grounds|
From the legendary builder of the finest convertible sportfishing yachts in the world comes a new breed of center console that sets revolutionary standards in performance, engineering and fishing capabilities.
The Viking Yacht Company proudly introduces Valhalla Boatworks, a new company dedicated to designing and building high-performance center consoles with the same Viking quality, craftsmanship and expertise that has led the marine industry for 55 years.
Backed by Viking’s industry-leading customer service and dealer network, the Valhalla Boatworks V Series consists of three outboard-powered deep-V monohulls from 33 to 41 feet designed to excel as hard-core fishing boats, luxurious sport cruisers or yacht tenders.
The V-33, V-37 and V-41 are the result of the cooperative effort of the Viking Design & Engineering team and Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD). The V Series utilizes MPYD’s patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel running surface that reduces drag while increasing speed, stability and efficiency.
“It’s the most advanced and proven stepped-hull design in the world,” says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. “The twin steps and tunnel not only give you fast and efficient performance but also precise handling and a very stable ride.”
Following in the footsteps of their convertible stablemates, each V Series model is destined to become the leading center console in its class through engineering, experience and boatbuilding skill.
The design traits of Viking convertibles can be seen throughout these center consoles. Proud bows, gently sloping S-shaped sheers, double forward chines, helm pods, raised toe rails and mezzanine seating are some of the hallmarks. Viking engineering and mechanical prowess shine through as well, with customized Seakeeper installations that maintain storage or deck space and mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems designed and built to unmatched levels.
LET FREEDOM RING
No matter the model, the captain has gin-clear visibility through a wraparound Costa Clear or solid glass windshield. A black acrylic panel spans the width of the console for flush-mounted electronics. When it comes to seating arrangements, the V Series gives its owners flexibility to adapt to changing fishing and cruising needs. All three come standard with a forward console lounge with dry storage; at the helm, Costa Marine upholstered bench seating features tackle storage and Gemlux rod holders and cupholders on the backrest.
The aft end of this finely tooled seating module hides a manual or electric slide-out cooler topped with a seat cushion. Helm seating options include Llebroc Billfish or Release Marine teak chairs with armrests and flip-up bolsters. Integrated GG Schmitt transom seats and forward bench seating with backrests can also be added to your V Series vessel. Both options are designed and positioned to maintain maximum deck space for anglers. The transom seats flip up to become flush with the aft coaming, ensuring the full use of the cockpit. The twin forward benches are strategically located to maintain bow accessibility.
The console, helm seating module and forward seats are all designed with toekick space for increased safety and balance. Convenience features include a standard port-side dive door and options such as an anchor chute with plow anchor and windlass as well as a bow thruster.
The fishing features on the V Series are equally impressive, giving owners the freedom to personalize the boat for their geographic region, type of fishing or targeted species. Standard items include a raised transom live well, in-deck fish boxes, a sea chest live well system, Gemlux flush-mounted rod holders and tackle storage. Add rod holders, live wells and other fishing extras such as 12V electric reel outlets, a transom live well window and light and an additional live well pump with variable speed controller.
You can also opt for a second additional live well in the cockpit deck on all three models. Dress up your boat as you like with faux teak helm pods and toe rails, custom hardtop underside colors (to match hull color), teak forward backrests, deck box LED lighting, premium upholstery with Bentley stitching and underwater lights.
The same resources of Viking’s vertically integrated company are at the disposal of Valhalla Boatworks owners, so standard and custom components and systems of each build such as hardtops, marlin or gap towers and electronics packages are being designed and installed in-house by our experienced shipwrights to guarantee turnkey delivery. Hardtop packages can be loaded with top-shelf components in flawless installations. Lumitec spreader lights, six-rod rocket launchers, molded overhead electronics pods, Miya Epoch electric teaser reels (mounted in custom boxes) and outriggers from Gemlux and Rupp are available on all three models.
The consoles of these boats will feature a molded-in vanity with freshwater sink and retractable shower wand, dedicated lockable rod storage under the lounge seating, an electric freshwater head and access to electronics and the electrical distribution panel. These boats come with mechanical and electrical components and systems such as racing-style trim tabs; a D/C pressurized freshwater system; and color-coded, labeled and numbered wiring with corresponding drawings (an electrical system signature of Viking).
TWINS, TRIPS OR QUADS
Yamaha or Mercury four-stroke outboards with horsepower ratings from 300 to 425 in twin, triple or quad configurations provide the power for the V Series. All three models are engineered for Seakeeper installations in specially designed lazarette locations on centerline.
The efficiency of the stepped hulls and these direct-fuel-injected engines deliver best-in-class fuel economy and range. Power-assist hydraulic steering will be standard and joystick helm control systems with GPS station-keeping are offered on all three models.
The Valhalla Boatworks V Series center consoles are set to debut at the Viking/Valhalla Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event September 9-12 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and make their world premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show October 30 through November 3.
