A proven tournament winner with cat-like agility, the popular 52 Open is always in demand on the pre-owned express market.
The Viking 52 Open is a broad-beamed sportfishing heavyweight whose luxury accommodations belie her fishboat pedigree. Sleek and powerful with great helm visibility, a cockpit mezzanine, and a huge command deck, the 52 Open is the best-selling express fishing yacht this size yet produced. Stepping below, the L-shaped Ultraleather lounge to port features a triangular high-low table large enough to serve five adults for dinner. Along the starboard side, the galley includes under-counter refrigeration, a Corian counter, and a four-burner ceramic cooktop. Entertainment is provided by a home theater system with a 32-inch TV, a DVD/VCR combo unit and Bose surround sound speakers. The forward master stateroom has a walkaround double berth and a private head, and the guest stateroom to port has over/under bunks and a large hanging locker. A second full head to port can be accessed from both the salon and guest cabin. Note the stackable washer/dryer closet in the passageway just forward of the galley. The mezzanine—an innovative feature back in 2007—conceals a freezer, stowage compartments, and engine room access. Fishing amenities in the 148 square foot cockpit include an in-deck livewell, refrigerated step box, transom fish box, and a transom door with gate. MAN 1,360hp V12 diesels cruise at 32–33 knots (high 30s top).
Enter the spacious salon and you’re surrounded in luxury with indirect Halogen lighting, Amtico flooring, and rich designer furnishings.
Even with the mezzanine, the 148 square foot cockpit of the 52 Open accommodates several anglers and their gear without bumping elbows.
