Viking launched its first 55-foot, Jersey-tough sportfisherman in 1996—and then sold 153 of them. Viking’s new 55 Convertible, with its swept bow, raked lines, and fluid curves, is designed for today’s affluent angler. The 153-square-foot cockpit in this serious fishing machine is ready for action. And twin MAN V12s push the new Viking 55 to a top speed of 41 knots. It’s no wonder our editors were arguing who would get to run this award-winning convertible.
