  • Viking 38 OPEN

    Versatile design

    The Viking Yachts 38 Open shares the same hull, cockpit, and similar mechanical arrangement to the 38 Billfish, however, she differs in the command deck and bridge designs. The command deck provides seating with port and starboard L-shaped lounges and storage below. For great visibility, a raised centerline command station is a key feature on the 38 Open.

    As an owner/operator vessel, the 38 Open offers simplicity and ease of maintenance, serving as a ready-to-go fishing machine equipped for inshore and offshore missions as well as a versatile cruising boat with reliable inboard diesel power.

    Measuring 109 square feet, the 38 Open Billfish comes ready for battle with a laminated mounting plate in the deck for a fighting chair or a rocket launcher. Other fishability features include in-deck insulated fish boxes port and starboard, a walk-through transom door and liftgate, a bait freezer with upper tray, a transom fish box and live well, rod holders, tackle storage, and fresh and raw-water washdowns. Two-person mezzanine-style seats flank the centerline walkthrough, and there’s refrigerated drink storage, as well as ample general storage throughout.

    Available fully enclosed with climate control, the 38 Open Billfish’s command deck affords an abundance of seating, with port and starboard L-shaped lounges and storage below. A raised centerline command station gives the captain excellent sightlines and is equipped with a fiberglass (or optional teak) helm pod, power-assist hydraulic steering with stainless steel wheel, and Palm Beach style controls. Viking’s Palm Beach Towers can outfit the 38 Open Billfish with a custom tuna tower with a second helm and a buggy top.

    Below deck, the Viking 38 Open makes full use of its 14-foot beam to maximize comfort and utility. Hand-finished, high-gloss teak and Amtico flooring complement an elegant climate-controlled living environment. The private head, which is conveniently located immediately to port of the companionway stairs, has a large walk-in shower with satin nickel fixtures and an attractive Corian-topped vanity with sink and storage.

    Forward of the head and also on the port side, the galley is fully appointed, with a Corian countertop, two-burner electric stove, microwave/convection oven, cabinet storage, and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with built-in ice maker.

    Rest up in the forward stateroom, which has a lower double bunk and an upper single. There’s also a starboard-side hanging locker. A starboard-side sofa with storage can also be used as an additional bunk.

    As Viking continues to develop the Billfish series including the 38BF and 46BF, their building methods and materials have gained efficiency, which adds even more value to these boats. A modified vinylester resin is used in the entire hull skin. End-grain balsa and closed-cell foam are used as coring materials in selected areas for optimized strength and stiffness while minimizing weight. The single integral fiberglass fuel tank, sealed to the hull with resin foam, is resin infused with balsa coring on all sides for stiffness. The hull-to-deck joint is mechanically fastened every three inches and fiberglassed inside.

    For ease of maintenance, each engine, and other critical machinery is located beneath electrically-actuated hatches in the command deck area. The 38 Open is designed and built with many of the same mechanical systems, components, and technologies found on larger Vikings. Examples include the Delta-T engine room ventilation system and a fire suppression system that’s automatically or manually operated and tied into the main engine and generator ignitions.

    Running gear includes Class “S” pitch tolerance propellers with dynamic balancing and bronze struts, seacocks, and rudders. The engine room, lazarette, and forward bilges are painted with Snow White Awlgrip for increased visibility and ease of maintenance. A large centerline hatch gives you quick access to the engines, an optional Seakeeper SK 6 gyro, and water maker, and fuel tank fittings. Both the 38 Billfish and 38 Open Billfish are powered with twin Cummins QSB6.7 diesels with 550 MHP.
