The new Valhalla 37

Viking Yacht Co. launched a new venture called Valhalla Boatworks, which will build center consoles from 33 to 41 feet. The first three outboard-powered V Series boats — a 33-, 37- and 41-footer — will be introduced next fall at Viking’s dealer meeting in Atlantic City, N.J., the company said in a statement.

“Valhalla Boatworks was developed to allow our dealers and customers to fulfill a strong desire for high-end center consoles built by the Viking Yacht Co.,” said Patrick Healey, Viking president and CEO, in the statement.

Viking’s design and engineering team and Michael Peters Yacht Design collaborated on the design. The V Series boats ride MPYD’s patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel running surface, which reduces drag and increases speed, stability and efficiency.

“It’s the most advanced and proven stepped-hull design in the world,” said Viking design manager David Wilson in the statement. “The twin steps and tunnel not only give you fast and efficient performance, but also precise handling and a very stable ride.”

The boats are outfitted with fishing equipment, and components such as hardtops, towers and electronics are provided by Viking in its vertically integrated operation.

The boats will be powered by 4-stroke outboards with horsepower ratings from 300 to 425 in twin, triple and quad configurations.
