Length w/ Pulpit:
The Viking 42 Convertible is the first sportfishing boat from any manufacturer to be powered with Zeus pod drives. Elegantly styled like larger Vikings, the salon features a posh L-shaped lounge, a teak cocktail table, teak valances, and a surround-sound entertainment system with 32"" flat screen TV. The dinette is a step above the carpeted sole. Viking offers the 42 Convertible with a choice of layouts: The standard two-stateroom, two-head floorplan has a mid-level galley with bar stool seating, and the optional three-stateroom interior has an island galley forward in the salon. Notably, the Viking 42 features a mezzanine deck forward of the cockpit, an unusual perk in a small convertible. The 122-square-foot cockpit is ideal for cruising and fishing with recessed fish and stowage boxes beneath the sole. The mezzanine features hinged seating with stowage below, room for an optional freezer, and engine room access. A transom door with lift gate, fresh and raw-water washdowns, tackle locker with drawers, and a transom fish box are among the standard features. Powered with 600hp Cummins/Zeus pod drive diesels, the 42 Convertible cruises at 30 knots (low-to-mid 30s top).
