Ground breaking styling and performance set to rule the sea again!
With an unprecedented industry track record of launching six new boats in the past two model years, the Viking Yacht Company is once again poised to make waves with still another new model, this time the 55 Convertible. With a boat building heritage that spans over 48 years of uninterrupted family owned operation, history has plenty of opportunities to repeat itself. Such is the case of the new 55 Convertible. It was during the 1996 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show when Viking first introduced a 55 Convertible to rave reviews for its styling, performance and tournament pedigree. Viking would build over 153 of these ground breaking convertibles, which became the most popular boat in its class of that decade. As this new generation 55 Convertible featuring an exclusive high-speed running surface is about to launch, it appears this introduction is in fine company.
With every one of its premieres, Viking pushes the evolutionary envelope and this new 55 Convertible showcases timeless style, long the trademark of the company’s fleet that ranges from 42 to 92 feet. Sleek and sporty with nary a straight line in evidence the 55 Convertible’s profile is constantly in motion bow to stern from the aggressive rake at the stem to the gentle crown of the transom. In between, the metallic black windshield mask and molded feature lines in the flying bridge and deckhouse accent its fluid proportions with eye-pleasing devotion.
