The Viking 46 Billfish was announced at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and debuted during the 2019 fall boat show season. During the 37 Billfish's 2-year run of success, demand grew for this style of a Viking in a larger size. The Viking 46 was a natural progression for the Billfish line. These are purpose-built Viking Yachts are geared toward day boating but with very comfortable overnighting and living accommodations.

The Viking 46 Billfish is designed and built with many of the same mechanical systems, components, and technologies found on larger Viking Yachts, like the Viking 48 Convertible. 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.
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 and optional Seakeeper. Twin Cummins QSM11 715MHP diesels provide the standard power for the 46 Billfish, while twin MAN I6-800 CRM 800MHP are optional.
The 140-sqft cockpit has room for the entire family or crew. The cockpit sole is built with a laminated in-deck mounting plate for fighting chair, rocket launcher, or table installations. Standard features include a cockpit bait freezer with upper tray, in-deck insulated fish boxes port and starboard with overboard drainage, a walk-through transom door and lift gate, a transom fish box and live well, rod holders, tackle storage, and fresh and sea-water wash downs. Two-person, mezzanine-style seats flank the centerline walkthrough, and there’s refrigerated drink storage in the starboard mezzanine step, as well as ample storage throughout.
The 46 Billfish’s command deck can be enclosed and is climate-controlled. The command deck features a salon-like living area with a roomy U-shaped lounge and hi-lo table and a lounge that extends along the starboard side. Both seating areas hold rod storage underneath. For ease of maintenance, the 46 Billfish engines, and other critical machinery is located beneath electrically-actuated hatches in the command deck area.
Like our legendary Viking convertibles yachts, the 46 Billfish’s flybridge is designed with a tournament-style center console walk-around helm. The 46 BF has Palm Beach-style controls and power-assist hydraulic steering. Seating includes a single Release Marine teak chair (a second helm chair is optional) and lounges to port and starboard and a forward-console seat.
Rest up and recharge in the comfortable accommodations of the 46 Billfish. Featuring high-gloss teak cabinetry and custom Amtico flooring, the fully appointed starboard-side galley has an L-shaped Corian countertop, a two-burner electric stove, a microwave/convection oven, cabinet storage, and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with a built-in ice maker. The private head, located to port of the companionway stairs, has a large walk-in shower, an attractive Corian-topped vanity with sink and storage, and a medicine cabinet with mirrored doors. Easily accessible upper and lower bunks on the port side await tired anglers, and there’s a hanging locker only a few steps away. The first-class accommodations continue in the private forward stateroom, featuring an island queen berth, a hanging locker, upper storage cabinetry, and a flat-screen TV with stereo, speakers, and DVD player.
As Viking developed the Billfish series, the 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.
