A classic Viking design with a strong following, the first-generation 54 Convertible continues to rank among the most admired boats in this class. In 2020, The 54 C model was released and Viking reaffirms its domination of the mid-size convertible with the all-new Viking 54 Convertible.
A midsize sportfishing yacht of enduring popularity, the success of the Viking 54 Convertible owes much to her state-of-the-art construction and proven offshore performance. Making full use of the 17’8” beam, the layout accentuates the impressive size of her interior. Entering the salon through a sliding electric door, it’s rare to find barstools at the galley counter in a boat this size. In a clever design feature, the seat and seatback of the L-shaped salon sofa lift as a single unit for easy access to the storage area below. The 54’s three-stateroom two-head layout includes a midships master with a queen berth and en suite head. The guest stateroom to starboard has upper and lower berths, and the forward guest/VIP stateroom has a queen island berth. Both guest staterooms have private access to the second head where a washer/dryer is also housed. An alternate arrangement substitutes the forward queen with crossover single and double berths. Mezzanine seating overlooks the enormous 160 square foot cockpit, and a refrigerated drink box is concealed beneath the salon entryway. A meticulous standup engine room and a varnished teak helm pod are reminders of Viking’s production-boat excellence. (Note that a new Viking 54 Convertible was introduced in 2020.) MAN 1,550hp V12 engines cruise at 32–33 knots and reach a top speed of nearly 40 knots.
Two bar stools blend neatly under the galley’s Corian countertop, giving this salon a remarkable blend of form and function.
Everything in the Viking 54’s huge cockpit is within easy reach, and the mezzanine seating is well protected by the flybridge overhang.
