MANUFACTURER PROVIDED DESCRIPTION
The Viking design group then turned to its pair of $1 million computer operated five-axis profiling milling machines and embarked on a prodigious course to create house and deck assemblies to produce the 48 Open, the 48 Sport Tower and the 48 Sport Coupe. In the process, Viking has once again rewritten the ground breaking rules of modern yacht design in creating fresh, contemporary models within a model.
The 48 Open with its sleek sheer line, raked stem and razor sharp entry melds perfectly with the one-piece wrap-around fiberglass windshield to produce the epitome of an athletic and racy express cruiser. Outfitted with a fiberglass hardtop and a custom tuna tower and outriggers from our subsidiary Palm Beach Towers the result is a masterful tournament contender bound for the Winner’s Circle each time the lines go in the water.
The Viking 48 Open, 48 Sport Tower and 48 Sport Coupe share a commonality of plush comfort and entertaining amenities. The 124 square-foot cockpit is ideal for fishing and other water activities. Stowage is ample throughout including a transom fish box, drink and bait coolers, recessed fish and stowage wells, and a split observation mezzanine. Space in the lazarette is provided for the available Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, which can be installed at the factory, or at a later date.
