    This 48 Sport Tower shares the same proven resin infused beamy hull as the 48 Convertible. It is a handsome addition to the world famous Viking product line up with exciting styling, an impressive two stateroom layout with Viking’s legendary construction and attention to detail. This hull carries its breadth farther aft for more interior volume, a wider cockpit, and more running surface.

    The three-sided fiberglass enclosed deckhouse is raised up from the hull which gives the captain increased visibility as well as protection from the elements. The helm is centerline has excellent sightlines, hydraulic steering, single lever electronic controls, and air-conditioning for those warm days fishing or cruising.

    The Viking 48 Sport Tower exudes plush comfort and entertaining amenities. The 124 square-foot cockpit is ideal for fishing and other water activities. Stowage is ample throughout including a transom fish box, drink and bait coolers, recessed fish and stowage wells, and a split observation mezzanine. Space in the lazarette is provided for the Seakeeper gyro stabilizer.

    Spacious and airy, the command deck has three pedestal seats, L-shape port and starboard molded fiberglass consoles with stowage and available refrigeration. Each console is complemented with a pedestal mounted table and generous seating. The centerline helm delivers excellent sightlines, power-assisted hydraulic steering, single lever electronic controls and sophisticated communication, entertainment and navigation electronic systems from Atlantic Marine Electronics to deliver each boat turnkey ready.

    The lush interior abounds with hand-finished teak joinery and spacious appointments throughout the salon including a flat screen television with surround sound. An L-shape lounge and dinette anchor the area for relaxing, dining and entertaining. To port, the galley is accented with Cambria treatments, under counter refrigeration, a microwave/convection oven and plenty of stowage. Inviting accommodations in two staterooms include a queen-size bed forward with private access to the head. A starboard stateroom has upper and lower berths.

    Powered with MAN V-8 1,200 hp diesels the 48 Sport Tower will cruise at 30 knots with a top end around 40 knots, subject to load, sea and other environmental factors. Maneuvering around the dock is aided by Joystick and a hydraulic bow thruster. 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.
