While the 42 Convertible and 42 Open share the same LOA, they are as unique as day and night. The 42 Convertible, for example, is incredibly well proportioned with its nearly 16 feet of beam to allow three staterooms and two heads below with room and comfort to spare. Likewise in the deckhouse, every available inch has been put to good use with a comfortable sofa, a dinette and a practical galley. The cockpit sports Viking’s signature observation mezzanine, while the flying bridge exhibits every amenity found on its larger siblings, albeit in a scaled down version.
Cabin space available is maximized due to use of pod drives, a significant departure from other Vikings. As you would expect from Viking, the cockpit has a tournament pedigree and the command bridge includes three pedestal helm seats, along with plenty of lounge seating and ample creature comforts.
