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.

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

Look out 2021 – here comes the Valhalla 46! The new flagship of the Valhalla Boatworks V Series is in the final stages of production at Viking Mullica and will make her world premiere in just three short weeks.

 
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.

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.

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.
