The new Viking 48 Convertible recently completed sea trials.

The new Viking 48 Convertible, which was undergoing sea trials late last week, is on its way to Florida on a four-day run in preparation for its debut at the 20th annual VIP Boat Show preview at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Fla., Jan. 29-30.

The company will include the boat, which has three staterooms and two heads, in its lineup at Yachts Miami Beach, which takes place along Collins Avenue from Feb. 11-15.

“We’ll probably have a 14- or 15-boat display at this year’s Yachts Miami Beach,” Viking communications director Pete Frederiksen said.

“We’ll probably bring every model we build from 42 to 92 feet. We’ll also be talking about a new motoryacht that’s coming — an 82 that won’t be ready yet. It will probably be out in the spring. We’ll have the new 48, and the new 80 Enclosed Bridge. We’re going to go gung ho like we always do and let people see what Viking is doing.”
