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.
Arcadia Yachts uses design to create efficient cruisers that also deliver on comfort. While the ultramodern lines may not appeal to everyone, boaters who take the time to understand what the design brings may have their minds changed.
