Successor to the original Viking 50 Convertible (19912001), the second-generation Viking 50 offers a level of luxury and comfort seldom encountered in a sportfishing yacht her size. It goes without saying that Viking practically owns the market for high-end convertibles these dayswith Hatteras and Bertram on the ropes (as of mid 2014) the competition is thin indeed. The 50 Convertible is built on a high-tech, fully cored hull with prop pockets and a wide 17-foot beam.

Cockpit amenities include two insulated in-deck fish boxes, transom livewell, and mezzanine seating with bait freezer and storage under.
