Archived V Reports
Full Throttle

Production of the latest addition to the Valhalla Boatworks V Series – the V-55 – continues to gain momentum. Join Viking President and CEO Pat Healey for an update on hull No. 1 of our new flagship as well as details about the tremendous progress our boatbuilders are making throughout the entire V-55 production line. As Pat says: “We’re ramped for good reason – we’ve sold 50 of these boats!”

Sweeping Success

Valhalla Boatworks has now delivered more than 250 boats since the brand was announced in 2019. The V Series continues to gobble up market share in the competitive center console world through an unmatched combination of quality, style, engineering, performance and customer service.

Charging Forward

Production of our new Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) V-55 is charging forward at full throttle. You can feel the energy on Line 5 here in New Gretna, New Jersey, where our shipwrights are working diligently on the new V Series flagship.

Perfect Timing

The Haabestad family was all smiles recently as they took delivery of SKÖL, a gorgeous Valhalla 46 hailing out of Stone Harbor, New Jersey.

Memories for Life

Our authorized Valhalla Boatworks dealer in Australia – Short Marine – ran a Valhalla 37 nearly 400 nautical miles from their Gold Coast location at Runaway Bay Marina to the Sydney International Boat Show.

High Gear

Production of our new Valhalla Boatworks flagship – the V-55 – has kicked into high gear. With laser-sharp focus, our shipwrights are working diligently on all aspects of our ground-breaking center console.

Keyed Up

Hang onto your hats folks – here comes the Valhalla 46 Trust Fun. She's a Snow White V Series center console sporting a custom Palm Beach Towers gap tower.

Getting it Done

Major progress has been made with the second phase of our expansion of Viking Mullica, where the Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) V-33, V-37, V-41 and V-46 are manufactured.

Perfect in Every Way

A fan of Viking Yachts for many years, Dale Curtis Jr. saw his first Valhalla Boatworks center console in the Fort Lauderdale area about two years ago. “It was a 37 or a 41 being used as a tender,” says Dale.

Fresh Look

We’re excited to present some new renderings and images of our Valhalla Boatworks V-55, many of which appear for the first time in the summer 2022 issue of our Valhalla magazine. 

Keeping It Clean

Last week, we showed you the Valhalla KAZUAL, a V-33 decked out with aesthetic enhancements and outfitted for day tripping, cocktail cruising and beach hopping with some casual fishing thrown in the mix.

Just Like You

At the end of the workday or heading into the weekend, it’s natural for people to want to forget about their jobs and escape into some non-work-related activity – golfing, biking, hiking, etc. But a good number of the Viking team – just like our owners – choose to spend their free time on the water.

Into the Blue

Here’s yet another special Valhalla 46 – this one a custom metallic blue V-46 with a Palm Beach Towers (PBT) marlin tower. The owner is a car enthusiast and selected a specific paint – Axalta Imron Venice Blue – that closely resembles the distinctive Guardsman Blue that was used on the famous Ford Shelby Cobra.

Wish You Were Here

In this V Report, come to the Florida Keys with us aboard the V-46 Trust Fun, the first Valhalla 46 with the combination of a custom Palm Beach Tower (PBT) gap tower and a trio of Mercury’s 600-hp Verado outboards.

Expansion Update

Last year, we completed a 6,000-square-foot addition to the fiberglass area at Viking Mullica by physically connecting Buildings 2 and 3 to create one contiguous manufacturing area (see inset).

Lines In

More and more center consoles are fishing the offshore tournament circuit each year. And our Valhalla Boatworks V Series certainly possesses the speed, range, comfort and fishability to compete successfully in the big money tournaments that are fast approaching.

Inside Scoop

One of the benefits of subscribing to our digital newsletter is you get the inside scoop on the latest news from Valhalla Boatworks, and that includes behind-the-scenes (BTS) sneak peeks of what we’re working on – photos, video, interviews and other cool stuff headed your way.

Dealing Down Under

The new authorized Valhalla Boatworks dealer in Australia, Short Marine, has gotten off to a fantastic start. Located in Mosman, New South Wales, on the southeast coast near Sydney, Short Marine has already taken delivery of a V-37 and has eight additional V Series center consoles – a group that encompasses all five models – on the production schedule.

Fine Art

We have a strong rapport with our Valhalla owners and take every opportunity to talk to them about their boats and adventures. Recently, for example, we spoke to our friend up in Cape Cod, Joe Zink, who just took delivery of this beautiful Kingston Grey V-41. Here’s what he had to say.

Leading the Charge

An accumulation of engineering achievements, unique design traits and build specifications, and next-level equipment and accessories all combine to make our new Valhalla Boatworks V-55 the new standard of excellence for center consoles over 50 feet. Here are 15 fast facts that separate us from the rest.

More from Key West

Last week’s V Report showed you some images from the exciting 2022 Viking Key West Challenge, focusing on the Valhalla Boatworks center consoles that shined during our four-day event held every year at the southernmost point of the continental U.S. Now we have an entire video to show you, which captures the great variety of activities that make the VKWC “More Than Just Fishing!”

Rising to the Challenge

The eighth annual Viking Key West Challenge (VKWC) was a smashing success, with 50 boats and more than 500 people attending the three-day event. “The Viking Key West Challenge is an amazing event that just keeps getting bigger and better, with more boats and more people participating every year,” says Viking President and CEO Pat Healey.

In Full Force

The 40th Palm Beach International Boat Show begins tomorrow, and Valhalla Boatworks will be there in full force, with all four V Series models on display. Starting with the Valhalla 33, you simply cannot match the style, quality, performance and engineering of our center consoles.

Better Every Day

Brothers Bill and Bob Healey founded Viking in 1964 with a commitment “to build a better boat every day.” It’s a philosophy that still drives us – and our sister companies such as Valhalla Boatworks – nearly six decades later.

Fantastic February

The Viking Yacht Company saw record sales this boat show season, with a combined 43 Vikings and Valhallas sold during the Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks VIP Boat Show and the Miami International Boat Show (MIBS).

Show of Power

The Valhalla V Series fleet at the Miami International Boat Show (which wrapped up Sunday) was a showcase of Mercury outboard options, with each boat powered with a different engine model, configuration and horsepower rating.

Timing is Everything

This Valhalla 46, powered with triple Mercury 7.6-liter V12 600-hp Verado outboards, will lead the fleet of Valhalla Boatworks V Series center consoles into the 2022 Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks VIP Boat Show, Feb. 4-5, in Riviera Beach, Florida.

Out of Sight

We talk a lot about the signature design traits of our Valhalla center consoles: double strakes, chines and steps; S-shaped sheer; transom bustle; and faux teak transom to name a few.

Eye Candy

With her proud bow, gently sloping sheer, double chines and Palm Beach Towers (PBT) marlin tower, this Kingston Grey V-37 is pure eye candy.

Fabulous Ft. Lauderdale

“Another glorious day in beautiful Fort Lauderdale,” said Mayor Dean Trantalis as he opened the 62nd Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) last week. And glorious it was!

Welcome to Ft. Lauderdale

Welcome to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show! The largest in-water boat show in the world kicks off today in sunny Florida, and the finest center consoles in the industry will be on display at the Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks display on D-Dock at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center.

Snow Bird

The momentum is building – we’re only one week away from the 2021 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. And it’s going to be fantastic!

Top This

Our in-house manufacturing, resources and experience allow us to personalize each Valhalla, and boats like this V-46 punctuate the stunning results.

Star Power

Valhalla Boatworks will have all four V Series center consoles on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oct. 27-31, led by this Kingston Grey V-46 with quad Mercury 450Rs.

First In Ft. Lauderdale

In just four weeks, the Valhalla 46 will make her first Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show appearance, continuing an incredible run of success that began with the V Series flagship’s world premiere at the Viking and Valhalla VIP Event in January.

Carpe Diem

Talk about Carpe Diem. The Samuels family and friends have fished the heck out of their new Valhalla 33 Lily, seizing every possible day since taking delivery only two months ago.

Valhalla 46

At Valhalla Boatworks, the hits just keep coming. The latest knock-your-socks-off V Series center console is a smokin’ hot black Valhalla 46 with a silver boot stripe and blue accent stripe.

All Summer Long

From the Northeast Canyons to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond, Valhalla owners had a blast this summer filling sun-drenched days with fishing and cruising adventures. Like postcards mailed home from camp, they sent us some of their magical summertime moments.

Tuna Fishing Machine

Sam DiFeo wasted no time breaking in his new Valhalla 41 Andiamo, which we highlighted in the Aug. 4 V Report. Days after taking delivery, the DiFeo family saw immediate success in their hunt for tuna off the New Jersey coast.

Valhalla 41

This Flag Blue Valhalla 41 with custom Palm Beach Towers marlin tower will soon be on the hunt for tuna in the Mid-Atlantic this summer. She’s powered with triple Yamaha V8 425XTO outboards and equipped with Yamaha’s Helm Master joystick and steering, a Seakeeper 3, a bow thruster and a custom Atlantic Marine Electronics navigation and entertainment package.

Having a Blast

Powered with trip Mercury Verado 400s, the V-37 Jenny B shows off her giddy-up in this Bass River video taken before delivery. Jenny B is owned by a New England family who is already enjoying their Valhalla fishing and cruising the beautiful bays and coastal areas of Massachusetts. They sent us these great family photos (below), taken in their home waters of Gloucester. As you’ll see, they’re having a blast.

The Place to Be

The recent delivery of the first Valhalla 46 with a marlin tower marks another milestone for Valhalla Boatworks. Powered by quad Mercury 450s, this Flag Blue beauty boasts a host of individualized options in addition to her custom Palm Beach Towers marlin tower and Atlantic Marine Electronics communications, navigation and entertainment package.

Free and Clear

Valhalla Boatworks V Series center consoles are designed for maximum ease of use, maintenance and access. Their functional, clean layouts are a refreshing alternative to boats laden with unnecessary equipment and handicapped with inaccessibility. This recently delivered Valhalla 37 is just one example of the Valhalla difference, with its safe, functional and expansive deck spaces.

Near and Far

Valhalla Boatworks continues to broaden its global appeal, with owners around the world taking delivery of our V Series center consoles. In fact, several of our new Valhalla 46s are headed for international waters, including Turkey and Panama. But let’s start off in the good old USA. Name the location, and the V Series is there (or on the way), whether it’s New England, the Mid-Atlantic, Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, the Great Lakes or California. The above and below shots (by of the V-37 Lucky Enough were taken off Falmouth, Massachusetts.

Sexy Cool

Here’s a V-33 showing off her true colors – or lack thereof. The Valhalla 33 Flapjack features a Kingston Grey hull and hardtop, Whisper Grey topsides, Cadet Grey upholstery, black-and-grey Mercury Verado V8 300s, black powder-coated hardtop supports and a host of other fastidious appointments. “We work closely with every owner to develop a personalized aesthetic theme for their Valhalla,” says Sean Healey of Valhalla Boatworks. “This particular owner used black and various shades of grey to accentuate a clean, sexy-cool look.”

Cuts Like a Knife

The Valhalla 46 has been dominating the headlines lately, but the V-41 has plenty of star power itself. Keep an eye out for this Valhalla 41 in New Jersey this summer and Palm Beach, Florida, next winter. We grabbed some drone footage during one of her test runs. She sports a Stars and Stripes Blue exterior, teak toe rail, ProCurve solid curved glass helm enclosure and hardtop with molded-in radar pod, Gemlux outriggers, Lumitec Razor light bars and much more. Her quad Mercury 450Rs pack a punch and will push her double-stepped hull to 78 mph.

Amazing Mullica

Images of beautiful recently completed Valhallas have taken center stage in the last few V Report e-newsletters, including the first V-46 with a tuna tower. Now we shine the spotlight on the people and the place responsible for producing the finest center consoles in the world – Viking Mullica. It consists of three manufacturing buildings nested in the Pinelands of New Jersey, just 11 miles from the mothership in New Gretna. Viking Mullica’s 200-plus-strong workforce operates out of 88,000 square feet of manufacturing space with expansion projects underway that will add another 12,000 square feet.

High Praise

Photos of the first V-46 with a Palm Beach Towers tuna tower are in – and the results speak for themselves. Hull No. 4 of the Valhalla Boatworks V Series boasts a Snow White gelcoat, faux teak transom and toe rail, a Seakeeper 6, helm air-conditioning and a host of other enhancements and accessories to complement the beautifully crafted custom anodized aluminum structure from PBT (a Viking subsidiary). She’s powered with a quartet of Mercury 450Rs and equipped with electronic power steering and joystick control for the ultimate in speed, acceleration and maneuverability.

Golden Opportunity

Another Valhalla has joined a growing fleet of V Series center consoles serving as matching tenders to a mothership Viking yacht. When the owner of the 92 Double Barrel learned that Viking was launching its own fleet of center consoles he was eager to find out more. “I visited the factory and was blown away – as expected – by the fit, finish, engineering and thought that went into the Valhalla boats,” says Michael Rothberg. “I knew I ‘needed’ one right there and then.” The Rothbergs are proud of their boats, and regularly showcase them – separately and in tandem – on social media.

X Factor

Powered by a quartet of Mercury’s new ground-breaking 7.6-liter V12 600-hp Verado outboards, our Valhalla 46 comes at you from every angle in this awesome display of innovation in action. Click on the above image to watch the V-46 perform at Mercury’s iconic Lake X testing center in Florida. For more information about the Valhalla 46 or any of our other V Series models, which include the V-33, V-37 and V-41, please contact your authorized Valhalla Boatworks dealer. Enjoy the show!

Rise and Shine

Our Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) center consoles look great any time of day, but these first-light photos of the Valhalla 37 Jenny B give new meaning to the term “Rise and Shine.”

Success Story

Viking President and CEO Pat Healey looks back at the evolution of the new Valhalla 46 and the incredible build process that brought us hull No. 1. Pat describes the tremendous team effort that began last summer and culminated with the overwhelming successful world premiere of the new Valhalla flagship at our VIP Boat Show this winter. He also previews the Palm Beach International Boat Show, where V-46 hull No. 2 (powered with a quartet of Mercury’s groundbreaking 7.6-liter V12 600-hp Verados) will be unveiled to the public for the first time. The four-day exhibition, which begins tomorrow and runs through Sunday, will also feature a V-33 with twin Mercury 450Rs, a sexy Shark Grey V-37 and a V-41 with a Palm Beach Towers gap tower.

Take a Bow

The sheer size of the V-46 plays an integral role in the boat’s ability to carry out its mission as the ultimate large fish-and-cruise high-performance center console. With a nearly 50-foot length (with engines down) and a ginormous 13-foot, 4-inch beam, there’s too much to cover in a single V Report, so we’ll focus on one area of the V-46 at a time in separate editions of our digital newsletter. And what better place to start than the bow?

Piping Hot

One of the key benefits of owning a Valhalla is that you have the same resources at your disposal as Viking customers, including the subsidiaries of Atlantic Marine Electronics (AME) and Palm Beach Towers (PBT). We recently captured some images of hull No. 33 of the V-41, which sports a custom fold-down marlin tower from PBT.

Next-Gen Fishing

Watch Valhalla Boatworks' Sean Healey, Galati Yachts Sales' Nick Galati and Josh Shields, the grandson of Los Sueños Resort and Marina owner Bill Royster, compete in Leg 1 of the 2021 Signature Triple Crown aboard the fastest boat ever to participate in the prestigious annual event - the Valhalla 41 center console.

V-46 New Photos

The V-46 was introduced only a few weeks ago, but the boating world has already crowned our new Valhalla flagship as king of the big center consoles. If you followed the evolution of the Valhalla 46, you’re probably not surprised.

Exclusive New Video

Breaking News

The world’s best big center console just got better. Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) is proud to announce that it will offer Mercury’s new game-changing 7.6-liter V12 600-hp Verado outboards on the Valhalla 46, the newly introduced flagship of the V Series.

Misssion Accomplished

“To tell you this has been an incredible experience is an understatement,” says Pat. “I’m so proud of our entire team. It’s been six months of hard work, but the result is nothing short of spectacular. The performance and handling, the layout and fishability, and the quality and workmanship are second to none.”

Clean Look

The Valhalla 46’s custom curved windshield and frame are key to its excellent visibility and clear sightlines from the helm. The console, helm seating modules and forward lounge are all elevated on a 7-inch-high platform, which further optimizes the 360-degree view.

Dream Team

At the 2019 VIP Preview, Viking shocked the marine industry with the announcement of its ground-breaking center console company dedicated to producing the finest high-performance luxury center consoles in the world.

Thrillin' and Chillin'

The Valhalla Boatworks V-41 can be anything you want it to be – sexy-fast sportboat, fish-raising offshore center console and luxury day cruiser are a few examples. With a quartet of Mercury Verado 400s, she takes off like a rocket and hits a top speed north of 70 mph.

Change of Scenery

Time for a change of scenery? The Valhalla 33 is your ticket to destinations near and far. This V-33 is anchored off the Caribbean island of Vieques east of Puerto Rico, which is known for its gin-clear waters, secluded beach coves and natural wildlife.

Fast and Furious

Best Fit & Finish

Our Valhalla Boatworks center consoles are built to the highest levels of fit and finish in the industry. That meticulous attention to detail shines through in this V Report, with our team of shipwrights at Viking Mullica carefully installing a myriad of parts in all shapes and sizes.

Height Advantage

Hot off the presses, here’s a collection of new renderings of our exciting new V-46 with a Palm Beach Towers (PBT) gap tower. Like the V-33, V-37 and V-41, the Valhalla 46 can be outfitted with either a custom gap tower or fold-down marlin tower.

Destined to Dominate

From live wells and fish boxes to teaser reels and rod storage, Ryan Higgins from Valhalla Boatworks and Viking Yachts highlights the V-46's tremendous fishing features, equipment and overall capabilities. Our new flagship has the size, seating, engineering and fishability to thrive no matter your location, choice of species or type of fishing.

Rising Star

Last week marked another milestone for our exciting new Valhalla 46. After its structural stringer grid was bonded in place, hull No. 1 rose to the rafters at Viking Mullica as our shipwrights pulled the massive structure from its mold and placed her on a custom cradle.

Bad to the (Back)bone

Utilizing a calculated resin-to-fiberglass ratio, the structural stringer grid minimizes weight while bringing stiffness and strength to our high-performance center console. An engineered composite of fiberglass fabrics and coring is infused with vinylester resin using a vacuum.

China Girl

If you like talking boats, here’s a highly customized Valhalla 41 that’s a conversation starter for sure. From her metallic Caribbean Blue exterior and Palm Beach Towers (PBT) marlin tower to her unique cockpit rigging station and inexhaustible tackle storage, the V-41 China Girl has a boatload of features and equipment worthy of discussion.

People Power

From CAD design to completed mold, the next chapter of Valhalla Boatworks' evolution continues with this fascinating insider’s look at the advanced technology and multi-million-dollar machinery used to execute the V-46’s cutting-edge design.

V-46 Deck Layout

Our new V-46’s significant length (46’ 7”) and beam (13’ 4”) allow for an immense amount of space for fishing, storage and seating. From stem to stern, this intuitive layout maximizes comfort and 360-degree accessibility.

Our Boat, Our Life

You couldn’t have scripted this story any better. Viking’s legendary Designer Bruce Wilson, his son David (the current Design Manager for Viking and Valhalla Boatworks) and his young family took delivery of their Valhalla 33 Keel-Bro earlier this month.

Tools, Technology & Talent

In another behind-the-scenes look at the initial stages of our new Valhalla 46’s production, we take a close at the tools and technology used by our two five-axis CNC routers. You’ll also meet the talented programmers controlling this million-dollar machinery as they carve the plugs that will be used to manufacture the V-46 building molds.

Shaping the Future

New product is the pulse of the Viking Yacht Company, and one of the keys to our consistent innovation is our two five-axis CNC routers. In this V Report, follow the fascinating transformation of a massive foam block into the sophisticated double-stepped hull of the new Valhalla 46.

The Next Chapter

Magical Morning

Bill Royster, President and CEO of the Los Sueños Resort and Marina in Costa Rica, wasted no time breaking in his new Valhalla 37 . The lines were barely wet on the inaugural fishing trip when Bill hooked a blue marlin – while still driving the boat!

Feel the Beat

Crank the stereo and punch the throttles. Time to blast off aboard this fierce-looking 70-mph V-37 with triple Mercury Verado 400s. We gave you a sneak peek of her two-tone grey-over-black hull in the last V Report , and now (as promised) it’s time to feast your eyes on the completed masterpiece from Valhalla Boatworks (VBW).

Razor-sharp Focus

In less than 18 months, Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) has established itself as one of the top-flight high-performance center console builders in the world. Production of the V-33 , V-37 and V-41 is humming right along thanks to the resilient efforts and razor-sharp focus of our team of managers and shipwrights at Viking Mullica where the V Series is built.

Start to Finish

From start to finish, we are in control of the design and boatbuilding process of our Valhalla Boatworks V Series center consoles. Above, check out the time-lapse video showing our $1 million 5-axis profiler tooling the plug for a V Series hull mold.

White Knight

Valhalla Boatworks has delivered V Series center consoles to destinations as far away as Costa Rica, and there’s one even headed to Australia. But the Valhalla featured here, the V-37 Defiance , is staying right here in New Jersey. After making a short run north to her homeport in Brielle, she’ll soon be on the hunt for stripers, flounder and bluefin tuna.

Match Made in Heaven

The hull designs for the V-33 , V-37 and V-41 (above) are the result of a cooperative effort of the Viking Design & Engineering team and Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD), with Viking incorporating specific deadrise, bottom rocker shape, strakes and chines into a bottom that utilizes MPYD’s patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel (SVVT).

Have It Your Way

We believe that every Valhalla owner should be able to put their signature on their V Series center console, whether it's the V-33 , V-37 or V-41 . Our extensive optional equipment list allows you to personalize your boat -- both aesthetically and functionally. VBW's Ryan Higgins takes a close look at a V-41 whose owner wanted the best of both worlds -- comfort and convenience for day cruising and the latest innovations, equipment and technology for fishing.

Power of the Tower

Check out this Valhalla 41 with triple Yamaha 425s – the first V Series center console with a marlin tower. Custom designed, fabricated and installed by the Viking subsidiary Palm Beach Towers (PBT), our marlin towers increase visual fishing and navigation capabilities while keeping the captain close to the crew for optimal communication.

V-37 Walk-through

Join Valhalla Boatworks’ Justin Healey on the V-37 for an in-depth walk-through showcasing the high-performance luxury center console’s vast array of features and options. Along the way, Justin points out examples of her build quality, attention to detail and high-level engineering.

V Series Options

With our extensive optional equipment list, you hold the power to personalize your Valhalla – both aesthetically and functionally. As an example, we’ll take a close look at a V-41 , whose owner wanted both the ability to cruise in comfort and style as well as to fish with the latest innovations and equipment.

Live-bait Fishability

A superior live-well system is essential for boat owners whose fishing success depends in large part on live-bait capacity, location and management. For instance, this V-41 with gap tower is outfitted specifically for sailfishing in Florida, which requires a plentiful variety of fresh, energetic bait.

Walking the Walk

One year after its announcement at the Viking VIP Preview, the Valhalla Boatworks V Series is flying high, with 100 boats sold and nearly 30 delivered. “The enthusiasm has been off the charts and the demand incredible,” Vice President of Sales Mark Waldron said last week at the 2020 VIP. “What a remarkable first year, and we’re going to keep that momentum going.”

All in the Genes

Valhalla Boatworks conquers new ground while continuing to embody the qualities of our family-owned-and-operated company. Viking owners have embraced the V Series, and many have already taken delivery of their first Valhalla, commissioning them as luxury tenders, hard-core fishing center consoles or sexy sportboats.

Upper Echelon

Enter the upper echelon of center consoles with the V-33 , the ideal choice for those looking to join the Viking family and enjoy all of its intrinsic advantages. The patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel delivers the softest, driest and most efficient ride of any center console in this size range. She’s got some serious speed, too, topping out at 65 mph with a pair of 400-hp Mercury Verados.

Balanced Attack

The Valhalla Boatworks V-37 flourishes as a fish-raising offshore thoroughbred as well as a fast, sexy sport boat with all-day cruising capability. With triple Mercury Verado 400s, she has incredible speed and range, capable of running 500 miles at a cruise speed of over 50 mph and hitting 70.4 mph with the throttles pinned.

Top Gun

Feeling the need for speed? The top gun of the V Series , the Valhalla 41 , jets to 74 mph at WOT with quad Mercury Verado 400s. All key high-performance design characteristics (sharp entry, variable deadrise, strake and chine design, double steps and ventilated tunnel) work in unison with her propulsion package to deliver a soft, fast, stable and efficient ride; range exceeds 460 miles at 52 mph. The canyons are calling.

Coming on Strong

Captured running together in formation and individually, this footage showcases the speed, efficiency and overall performance prowess of the V-33 , V-37 and V-41 . Enjoy!

It's Time

The Viking Yacht Company today unveils to the world the highly anticipated Valhalla Boatworks V Series center consoles as the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show commences under sunny blue skies. The magnificent V-41, V-37 and V-33 made their first appearance at the Viking/Valhalla Sea Trial Event in September, igniting a wild fire of media coverage that quickly anointed our fleet of high-performance center consoles as frontrunners in this highly-contested market.

Attention to Detail

This V Report brings you aboard the Valhalla Boatworks V-33, the consummate choice for boating enthusiasts looking to get into their first Viking-built boat or current owners who want the ultimate tender for their mothership.

Powered by Viking

The same company qualities that make Viking the No. 1 boatbuilder in the world and define “The Viking Difference” also apply to our new sister company, Valhalla Boatworks . The Valhalla Difference means V Series owners get the same innovation, engineering, performance and quality that you’ve come to expect from Viking.

Back to the Future

As promised, all three V Series high-performance center consoles (the V-33 , V-37 and V-41 ) debuted at the Viking Yachts & Valhalla Boatworks Sea Trial Event last week in Atlantic City. It was the culmination of a massive tooling and manufacturing ramp-up that began only seven months ago.

First Look: V-41 Video

The Valhalla Boatworks V-41 – the flagship of the V Series struts her stuff on her initial sea trial. Watch hull No. 1 – powered with a quartet of Mercury 400s – eat up the chop in an exciting demonstration of acceleration, speed and agility. Our V Series center consoles will debut at the Viking/Valhalla Sea Trial Event in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on September 11. Contact your authorized Viking dealer or Gina Waldron for more information. The three-vessel fleet will make its world premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Oct. 30-Nov. 3.

Perfect Fit

We build our V Series center consoles with the same industry-leading levels of workmanship, fit-and-finish, and quality as our Viking sportfishing and motor yachts. Dedicated personnel thoroughly inspect each boat during the build, ensuring greater reliability, safety and customer satisfaction. Case in point: Jim McLaughlin, the Production Manager of Viking Mullica where the V Series boats are built, performs a quality-control check of the stainless Valhalla emblem on a V-37.

Your Ride's Here

All three of our V Series center consoles feature clean, highly-functional deck layouts. Their designs maximize walkaround access and deliver all the fishing equipment, seating options and top-shelf accessories you’ll need to make the most of your V Series experience. Every inch of space has been carefully planned and executed by the most experienced design and engineering team in the business.

Mullica Milestones

In this behind-the-scenes look at the build process of our exciting new V Series center consoles, hull No. 1 of the V-37 is pulled from its mold at Viking Mullica. A custom hydraulic-powered turning machine allows our shipwrights to rotate, raise and lower the hull for optimal build positioning. This is a full-throttle ramp-up, so we’ve established separate manufacturing lines for each of the three Valhalla Boatworks models – the V-33, V-37 and V-41.
