A state of the art yacht when she was introduced in 2003, more than a few boating enthusiasts still consider the Viking 45 to be about as good as it gets in a midsize convertible. Expecting good things in a Viking yacht comes naturally these days, and the 45 delivered an impressive mix of luxury and performance. Her spacious two-stateroom interior—updated in 2006 with a serving counter in the galley—features the same satin-finished cabinets and Ultraleather upholstery as Viking’s larger convertibles. The galley and dinette are forward in the salon, and rods stow handily below a posh L-shaped leather sofa. Frameless windows are capped with upholstered valances that conceal the air-conditioning ducts. A laundry center is at the base of the companionway steps, and both heads have separate stall showers. Cockpit amenities include tackle center, bait freezer, in-deck livewell and fish box, and transom door with gate. Additional features include a standard factory hardtop, large engine room with cockpit access, and teak and holly interior flooring. MAN 900hp diesels cruise the Viking 45 Convertible at 28–30 knots (low 30s top).

The Viking 45 Convertible is one of those rare cases where the product was so well matched to the market that success was virtually assured. A superb blend of modern convertible styling and cutting-edge performance, she’s constructed on a modified-V hull with a graceful sheer, moderate beam, and balsa coring in the hullsides. The 45 was available in three interior layouts during her production years, all with a serving counter separating the mid-level galley from the salon. An L-shaped sofa in the salon converts into a double bed, and honey teak woodwork is found throughout the interior. The engine room can be reached from the salon or via a second hatch by the cockpit door. As it is in all Viking products, the engine room is well lit and meticulously finished. The cockpit came with a molded tackle center, transom door, recessed fish boxes, etc., and the huge flybridge will seat a small crowd. A good performer with standard 485hp Detroit 6-71s, the Viking 45 Convertible will cruise at 24 knots and turn 27 knots on the wall. The 550hp 6V92s (since 1990) will cruise at a fast 27 knots and reach a top speed of 30 knots. About 250 were built during her production run.
