The Viking 38 Billfish
Fish-focused owners from around the world are taking advantage of the many exceptional attributes of the Viking 38 Billfish. This straightforward, easily maintained sportfishing day boat gets you to and from the fishing grounds quickly and comfortably, with excellent fuel efficiency and range.
Fish hard all day from the fully equipped cockpit (above), and then get off your feet and enjoy the comforts of the salon-like command deck (below) with its raised seating for excellent visibility, available air conditioning and dinette. The optional lower helm keeps the captain close to the action and will appeal to owners who fish with smaller crews.
Access to the Cummins QSB 550 (550MHP) diesels is superb. The port and starboard fiberglass seating modules open outboard via electric actuators, completely revealing the engines and surrounding mechanical systems and components such as the generator, Delta-T ventilation system and fiberglass battery boxes. There’s also a centerline day hatch for quick fluid-level checks and access to the battery switches.
The 38 Billfish’s flybridge with walk-around center console helm provides unimpeded 360-degree views – perfect for sight fishing, keeping eyes on baits and maneuvering in the heat of battle. Guests can spread out and enjoy the views in the seat forward of the console or the flanking lounges with backrests. The Viking subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics takes care of all electronics, navigation, communication and entertainment needs.
The cabin’s hand-finished, high-gloss teak joinery and Amtico flooring make this climate-controlled living space both inviting and attractive. The starboard-side L-shaped galley is fully appointed with a Corian countertop, a two-burner electric stove, a microwave/convection oven, cabinet storage and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with a built-in ice maker.
The master stateroom with an island double berth features an innerspring mattress with storage underneath, an HD TV, stereo system with CD/DVD player, a pair of maple-lined hanging lockers, a port rod locker, starboard upper storage cabinetry, and a Bomar hatch with shade. An optional layout offers double and single crossover berths. This private suite is also appointed with Amtico flooring. Besides the 38 BF, the Billfish series is comprised of the 38 Open Billfish and the 46 Billfish. For information about any of these Vikings or other models please contact HMY today.
