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

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.

Focus and Commitment

Each V Series model (V-33, V-37 and V-41) has its own dedicated production line at Viking Mullica, a testament to the focus and commitment we’ve made to our Valhalla Boatworks high-performance center consoles. Above: On the V-37 line, overhead electric hoists move a deck liner into position for installation into the hull.

Our V Series center consoles are designed with clean deck layouts that maximize 360-degree walk-around access while providing abundant storage and an arsenal of fishing equipment and features. Here’s a closer look at the V-37.

The Right Stuff

Here’s an inside look at our R&D and product development departments in New Gretna. In this 36,000-square-foot facility, highly skilled and experienced designers, engineers and craftsmen use leading-edge technology and machinery to produce the tools our shipwrights at Valhalla Boatworks need to build the groundbreaking V Series center consoles at our Mullica plant.

Front Runner

Click on the image above to come inside our R&D facility for a sneak peek at the early production stages of the V-41. The flagship of the Valhalla Boatworks V Series, this triple- or quad-powered offshore runner is poised to take the reins as the leading high-performance 40-plus-foot center console on the market.

Time to Step Up

The V Series Seakeeper installations illustrate our engineering and mechanical prowess. The gyros are positioned in a centerline-engineered mounting space that’s molded into the stringer grid. Melvin Bonilla (left), Mechanical Department Foreman, and Mechanical Engineer Andrew Sterling (right) guide a Seakeeper SK 3 into the V-37. The V-41 is also designed for an SK 3, while the V-33 accepts an SK 2.

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.
