When it comes to long-term popularity the Viking 61 is in a class of her own.

Model Overview: The 61 Convertible is arguably the most sought after model that Viking ever built. Lean and muscular on the outside, her lavish interior, massive cockpit and superb open-water handling were once the standard for sportfishing luxury and performance. Descended from the iconic Viking 55 Convertible, the 61 has a sharper entry than previous Vikings for a drier ride and improved headsea performance. Like the Viking 65 and 72 convertibles before her, the hull of the Viking 61 is fully cored. She was available with two equally popular interiors, a three-stateroom layout with three full heads and a four-stateroom configuration with three heads and a VIP queen forward. Like all Viking interiors, the high-gloss woodwork and rich decor make for truly elegant accommodations. An Enclosed Bridge model with a spiral salon staircase was optional. In 2005 a mezzanine deck became standard (previously optional), and in 2003 the hull bottom was redesigned for prop pockets. The engine room has standing headroom with a separate pump room forward. MTU 1500hp 16V2000 (or Cat 1,675hp C32) diesels cruise at 30 knots (35–36 knots top).  A total of 153 were built.

"The Viking 61's vast 170-square-foot cockpit is uncluttered and businesslike. A freezer, a drink box, a tackle center, a sink and engine-room access are hidden neatly in the molded-in bulkhead console."

–Yachting Magazine

"Viking handles passenger safety better than many builders by covering the entire foredeck area with aggressive nonskid. Whoever goes to the bow to anchor or handle dock lines will greatly appreciate it."

–Marlin Magazine
