New Valhalla Series from Viking Yachts Targets High End Center Console Market

New Valhalla Series from Viking Yachts Targets High End Center Console Market

By HMY   September 30, 2019

It was big news last fall when word leaked that Viking Yachts was about to launch a new line of center consoles. As the leading builder of convertible sport fishing boats for nearly two decades, Viking’s decision to expand into the fast growing market for premium center consoles came as something of a surprise. What isn’t a surprise is that the new Valhalla series will be built to the same high level of construction, engineering and craftsmanship found in all Viking yachts.

To help introduce HMY clients to Valhalla models we’ve created this brief overview of what to expect. If you’re in the market for a premium center console we invite you to contact an HMY Valhalla expert today to learn more about these exciting new boats.

Q. Are Valhallas best defined as luxury center consoles or hard core fishing machines?

A. Valhallas are high performance fishing boats designed for serious anglers. Luxury features, yes, but Valhallas are built to fish hard and win tournaments.

Q. Where can I see a Valhalla model and when will they be available?

A. Valhallas will be marketed through Viking’s existing dealer network. They will be unveiled during the 2019–2020 model year.

Q. Who is Michael Peters, the designer of Valhalla boats?

A. Michael Peters Yacht Design has helped launch some of the most iconic fishing boats in the business over the past 25 years. Known for their exceptional open-water performance and precise close-quarters handling, Michael Peters is a pioneer in modern stepped hull design.

Q. I’ve driven stepped hull boats before and they can be a handful. What kind of handling qualities can I expect with a Valhalla?

A. The Valhalla’s stepped-V ventilated tunnel running surface reduces drag while increasing speed, stability and efficiency. Stepped hulls have come a long way in recent years and there’s a reason why more and more of these high performance designs are showing up on the market every year.

Q. The market for premium center consoles is getting crowded. What sets the Valhallas apart from the rest?

A. Viking’s reputation and commitment to cutting edge design and unsurpassed customer service will differentiate Valhallas from the competition. Enough said.
