The 54 Viking Open joins the award-winning 54 Convertible in an unmatched series of mid-size battlewagons by American boat manufacturer Viking Yachts. Holding to their mantra of building a better boat every day, the Viking 54 Open provides consumers with a versatile express-style yacht with greater size and greater performance standards. Making its world premiere at the 2021 FLIBS, the 54 Open proved to be one of the most popular boats on display. Check out some of her highlights below.
The new 54 Viking Open can be paired with the same MAN V12 1550CRM engines as the 54C. This power package enables top speeds of 42 knots and a 36.5-knot cruise to get to fishing grounds fast. Combined with her power-packed engines, the 54 Open features Optimus Electronic Power Steering matched to stainless-steel, high-speed rudders, and single-lever electronic controls for outstanding performance, comfort, and range.
The engine room, like most Viking sportfish yachts, showcases outstanding engineering that maximizes access and serviceability. Systems include Delta-T ventilation with supply and discharge fans for proper fresh-air supply and water suppression; an oil changing system for the engines, transmission, and generator; and a fire suppression system. Also, the Viking 54 comes standard with an Onan 21.5 kW E-QD (electronic-quiet diesel) Series generator.
Fishing enthusiasts will appreciate the expansive 154-square-foot cockpit, which boasts twin mezzanine seating, perfect for the whole family or crew. Drink coolers, in-deck fish and storage boxes, a transom live well, and a transom door with a lift-gate are a few standard items you will find while onboard. With its aggressive entry, raked stem, the one-piece wraparound windshield, and Palm Beach Towers hardtop and tuna tower, the Viking 54O presents a striking profile while outshining as a stylish fish-and-cruise Viking thoroughbred.
From the cockpit, instant access to the command deck makes for ease of moveability and convenience. The command deck is situated on a raised platform, displaying a centerline helm, pedestal seat, and port and starboard companion seating. Incredible visibility for the owner/operator is not only on the horizon but also at the wheel. Three multi-function displays flush-mounted in a recessed black acrylic panel with a surrounding integrated fiberglass visor contribute to the clean, streamlined design. The hardtop’s underside features a molded-in recessed area for the engine and instrument displays. The 54 Open features a fully-enclosed deck that is entirely climate-controlled for comfortable cruising.
Below deck, an elegant salon highlights a stunning horizontal-grain walnut throughout with your choice of a standard two-stateroom layout or an optional three-stateroom layout. Regardless of the option, the master stateroom is located forward with a centered queen walk-around berth, plenty of storage, and a private head.
