OnBoard Magazine - Issue XI - Summer 2019

W e all know Viking builds one of the best large sportfish boats on the market, but this year they have introduced several models under 50 feet. These new additions to the Viking family will prove once again that the company is faithfully carrying out its mission to build a better boat every day. New members of the Viking family for 2019 include the 38 Billfish, the larger 46 Billfish and the 38 Open Billfish. These new models exude the classic Viking style. “Viking designs and engineers every new model with a fresh and refined hull form,” Bluewater’s Jud Black explains. “They never just warm-over an old design to launch a new boat.” Though these models do have similar designs and layouts, each boat has its own purpose. Chris Landry, Viking’s Director of Communications states, “As an owner/ operator vessel, the 38 Billfish offers simplicity and ease of maintenance, serving as a ready-to-go fishing machine for inshore and offshore missions as well as cruising with reliable inboard diesel power.” VIKING’S NEWEST MODELS BRING BIG BOAT FEATURES TO SMALLER CONVERTIBLES SMALL BUT Forest Johnson MIGHTY 6 BLUEWATER
