One of Viking’s best selling models (153 were reportedly built), the Viking 55 is a world-class tournament machine with a graceful profile, elegant accommodations, and remarkable performance. So popular was this yacht that many seasoned brokers believe this to be as good as it gets in a sport fishing convertible of this vintage. Built on a soft-riding modified-V hull with cored hullsides, a solid fiberglass bottom and reverse chines, the standard three-stateroom, galley-up floorplan of the Viking 55 is arranged with the master suite amidships, a roomy VIP stateroom forward and two full heads—both with separate stall showers. A washer/dryer is located in the companionway, and a six-person dinette is forward in the spacious 200-square-foot salon. Outside, the large cockpit is fitted with a bait prep center, freezer, two in-deck baitwells, fish box, and direct access to the spacious engine room. The massive flybridge with its wraparound helm console and cockpit overhang provides guest seating for a small crowd. MAN 1,200hp diesels cruise the Viking 55 Convertible at 32–33 knots and reach a top speed of 35+ knots—impressive performance for a 55-footer.
