Viking Yachts 54' Convertible
The 15-degree transom deadrise is a strong argument for swift speed and easy planing to maximize engine efficiencies throughout the operating range of the 12-cylinder common rail MAN diesels. Standard fuel capacity is 1,445 gallons and this can be increased to 1,745 for additional range. Fuel, water and waste tanks are manufactured by Viking with its exclusive resin infusion process and designed so the tank bottoms mirror the hull bottom. This maximizes draw and enhances the center of gravity. Visually, the aggressively raked stem of this boat makes it clear that its mission is to get offshore quickly in the worst conditions without sacrificing speed or comfort. The hull’s razor-like entry is a complement to the flare and the convex curvatures of the running surface. This permits the hull to ride high while ripping over and through head seas followed by a soft and gentle transition as it re-enters coming back down into the trough. Whenever you fish and regardless of how far you have to go, when you throttle back to drop the outriggers and put the lines over, you will feel refreshed and ready for the first strike of the day and stay that way until it is time to head home.
