Viking Yachts unveils new models at dealer meeting

Viking Yachts used its annual dealer meeting to introduce three new models and preview future introductions.


Headlining the 2014 model year are the new 52 Convertible, 42 SC and 42 ST.

The 52 Convertible features a newly designed resin-infused hull with a matrix of knitted fiberglass laminates, Kevlar and end grain balsa coring, along with a one-piece deckhouse assembly from the pulpit to the inner transom liner.

The 42 SC has a “coupe-like” fiberglass hardtop to make it an all-weather cruising and fishing boat, while the ST includes a custom tuna tower from Palm Beach Towers, a subsidiary of Viking. Both are powered by Cummins QSC 600-hp diesels with Zeus pod drives.

Also announced during the meeting were updates on two other new models, the 92 Convertible and the 75 Motor Yacht, which will premiere at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.


The dealer meeting took place June 24-28 at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, N.J.
