2001 Viking 61 Convertible Description

The 61 Viking is widely regarded as one of the best hulls Viking ever built.  It is the boat that sent Viking to the absolute pinnacle of the production boat building hierarchy while other brands slowly faded away. Refit 61’s have a cult like following especially when they are refit with some of the more modern features.  The 2001 61 Viking “Duck Soup” has been updated and refit with everything a classic Viking enthusiast would want. Paint, SEA KEEPERS, Mezzanine, updated electronics and interior wood finish. Not to mention “Duck Soup” has the more desirable 4 stateroom layout and 2 generators.  She has been loved and maintained by an extremely knowledgeable and experienced sportfishing family. Do not miss the opportunity to own the finest refit classic 61 Viking available.

When you come to HMY, you’ll quickly understand that we are the authority for new and used Viking Yachts.

Most Viking owners at some point in their boating life come through HMY Yachts. One reason is our Viking Product Team has extensive hands-on experience.

If you’re looking for a knowledgeable Viking expert, look no further than HMY. All of this combined makes HMY the best brokerage to help you find the best used Viking or new Viking Yacht on the market while receiving an exceptional client experience.


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.
