2024 Viking 54 Open (TBD) Description
The 54 Open is an express yacht built off the very successful 54 Convertible that was launched at the 2020 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. A mid-sized express yacht with unique designs of a powerful entry, raked stem, and the same advanced hull as the 54 convertibles, HMY expects this vessel to have impressive performance results. Upon walking onboard, the 154 square foot cockpit, one will find ample seating with the twin mezzanine seating areas just aft of the command deck. The cockpit will also be an angler’s dream with cooler storage below the mezzanine seats that can be converted to optional freezer space, in deck-fish boxes, drink coolers, a transom livewell and door with lift gate, and a single hatch for the optional Seakeeper 9,16, or 18. Having the 54 Open platform with an aft open bulkhead, this gives all on board easy access to the cockpit when the fishing action starts. At the command deck, the centerline helm supported by a raised platform and a one-piece wrap around windshield gives the captain excellent visibility. With optional electronics packages from Viking’s subsidiary company AME, and electronics controls and storage in a large radio box to Port, the 54 Open will be ready to hit the tournament trail or cruising grounds. The command deck is also a wonderful gathering place for guests to enjoy, including a u-shaped lounge with Ultraleather cushions to port with a walnut table in the center and storage underneath, and abundant refrigeration and tackle storage throughout. At the center of the mezzanine is the engine room access. The 54 Open can be powered with the standard MAN 1400 V12 CRM engines at 1400MHP a piece, or the optional MAN 1550 V12 CRM engines at 1550 MHP a piece.
Down below, guests will enjoy the luxury accommodations offered in the 54 Open, with a two or three stateroom layout in a walnut interior with horizontal grain orientation. To midship and starboard is the well-appointed galley, to port is a large u-shaped sofa for the two-stateroom layout, or the sofa is reduced allowing for the third stateroom to be accommodated. The guest stateroom is to port and shares the second head with the third stateroom, and the master is forward. The master has lush accommodations with a queen-sized bed with storage underneath, and en-suite access to the private head. The 54 Open can do it all!
2024 Viking 54O Specifications
2024 Viking 54 Open (TBD) Vessel Overview
Viking introduces the 54 Open, Sport Coupe and Sport Tower. The express yacht triumvirate joins the 54 C for a mid-size tour de force.
Viking offers the largest and most diverse fleet in the industry, so it’s no surprise that the New Jersey boatbuilding powerhouse has announced three new express versions of its recently introduced 54 sportfishing yacht.
The new 54 Open (O), 54 Sport Coupe (SC) and 54 Sport Tower (ST) will join the 54 Convertible (C), which has been another smash hit from Viking since its premiere at the 2020 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show where it captured the Best of Show Award. The introduction of the 54’s three new stablemates illustrates Viking’s ability to produce new models by fusing a proven hull design with entirely new topside configurations. The trio also represents the largest express-style yachts Viking has ever produced.
Our $1 million 5-axis CNC router gives us the ability to build cockpit, mezzanine, command deck, windshield and foredeck assemblies that are unique to the Viking express yacht. Accommodation plans of our three new boats also differ from the convertible to optimize the design’s comfort and interior space.
With its aggressive entry, raked stem, one-piece wraparound windshield and Palm Beach Towers (PBT) hardtop and tuna tower, the 54 O presents a striking profile while excelling as a stylish fish-and-cruise Viking thoroughbred. The 54 ST features a three-sided fiberglass deckhouse (with an optional solid aft bulkhead) and a PBT tuna tower. This version is also available sans tower in our sophisticated SC rendition. Similarly, the 54 O can be delivered without a tuna tower as a sleek express yacht. All three models run on the same advanced hull form of the 54 C, which has exceeded all performance expectations.
The Open, Sport Coupe and Sport Tower share cockpit and command deck layouts, providing an excellent use of space for fishing, diving, cruising and entertaining. The 154-square-foot cockpit boasts twin mezzanine seating with cooler storage below (easily converted into optional freezer space), along with drink coolers, in-deck fish and storage boxes, a transom live well and a transom door with lift gate. A single centerline lazarette hatch (available with power actuation) opens nearly 90 degrees for full viewability and access to the available Seakeeper 9, 16 or 18 as well as the steering, trim tabs and drain pumps.
With its open aft bulkhead, the command deck gives you instant access to the cockpit. The centerline helm, with its pedestal seat on a raised platform, provides excellent visibility and is complemented by port (double) and starboard (single) companion seating. Three multi-function displays (up to 22-inches each) are flush mounted in a recessed black acrylic panel, contributing to the clean streamlined helm design. Bocatech switches and other operational controls and instruments are located in a large radio box to port of the raised helm pod. The MAN engine displays, autopilot and VHF radios are nested in a recessed area molded into the hardtop underside.
Aft of the helm, there is a convergence of practical and convenience features, including refrigeration and tackle and gear storage compartments. Plump cushions topping the port-side U-shape lounge, which surrounds a walnut table, will cradle your guests in comfort while providing ample height to take in the surroundings. To port, you’ll also find an L-shaped lounge with storage underneath.
Below, the 17 ft. 8 in. beam offers volumes of interior space including a choice of two- or three-stateroom layouts. With either, the forward master stateroom is large and fitted with a queen-size bed, plenty of storage behind the horizontal grain walnut cabinetry and served with a private head. Additional staterooms are found on the port side, each with upper and lower berths. The head has private access in the two-stateroom layout, while guests share the head in the three-stateroom plan. Midship on the starboard side is a well-appointed galley with a full appliance package, walnut cabinetry, an engineered stone countertop and under-counter refrigeration/freezer units (with varnished horizontal grain walnut faces). Opposite the galley in the two-stateroom model is an L-shaped lounge and table. The three-stateroom version utilizes booth seating. Other notable amenities include a 43” HD TV, Amtico flooring in the salon/galley/dinette and premium carpeting in the staterooms.
The engineroom, easily reached through lift-up steps built into the mezzanine, houses the twin powerplants. A pair of MAN V12 1400CRM (1400 MHP) engines serve as the standard propulsion package. Hull No. 1 – a Sport Tower model – will be powered with the optional MAN V12 1550CRM (1550 MHP) engines.
With its Optimus Electronic Power Steering matched to stainless-steel, high-speed rudders and single-lever electronic controls, the 54 delivers outstanding performance, comfort and range. As you would expect, the engineroom is equipped in the Viking tradition with outstanding engineering that is exclusive to this design and maximizes access and serviceability. Mechanical and electrical equipment includes a Delta-T ventilation system with supply and discharge fans for proper fresh air supply and water suppression; an oil changing system for the engines, transmission and generator; and a fire suppression system. The 54 also comes standard with an Onan 21.5 kW E-QD (electronic quiet diesel) Series generator.
Viking’s Atlantic Marine Electronics can outfit the 54 with custom electronics, communications and entertainment systems to make the boat, like every Viking yacht, turnkey ready for total owner satisfaction.Power Options

Viking Yachts has become a global leader in the luxury sportfish and motor yacht industry.
Founded in the early 1960’s by Bob and Bill Healey, Viking built its vessels much like Carolina builders, assembling the boats on frames at intervals throughout the manufacturing facility. By 1972 they were already working on the first all-fiberglass model, the Viking 33C, and building their way into history as one of the finest yachting brands in the world. Viking quickly grew into a major U.S.-based yacht builder and leader in its industry in less than a decade. In the 80’s Viking acquired Gulfstar Yachts in Florida, whose designs were considered by many to be some of the best in the industry and incorporated some new innovations furthering their place in the industry. Re-investing with their own money in the early ’90s, the brand has been on top of the world ever since.
From a 38-foot sportfishing boat to 93-foot motor yachts with semi-custom fiberglass, advanced flybridges, tuna towers, and impressive outriggers, Viking yachts carry a tradition of excellence, innovative technology, and family history. Most Viking Yachts models are manufactured in-house to ensure maximum attention to detail and impeccable quality control in every sport yacht, open bridge convertible, enclosed bridge convertible, billfish, and the open series yacht that is produced.
