    The 48 Convertible is part of the world-famous Viking product lineup with exciting styling, an impressive three stateroom layout with Viking’s legendary construction, and attention to detail. The Viking design group then turned to its pair of $1 million computer-operated five-axis profiling milling machines and embarked on a prodigious course to create house and deck assemblies to produce this 48 Convertible.

    Powered with MAN 1200 MHP diesels the 48 Convertible will cruise at 30 knots with a top end of 37 knots. The raked entry and forward chine are designed to pierce through head seas and divert spray downward. Convex hull sections add curvature and form to the running surface, while molded running strakes accentuate lateral tracking and maneuverability. Conveniently located in the world's top bill fishing destination, take advantage of this opportunity in Costa Rica!
