PROVEN TOURNAMENT WINNER – 55′ VIKING YACHTS "WOUND UP"

Stars and Stripes Viking Blue Paint Job / New Electronics

One of Viking’s best-selling models ever (153 were reportedly built), the Viking 55 is a world-class tournament machine with a graceful profile, elegant accommodations and remarkable performance. So popular was this yacht that many anglers believe the 55 to be as good as it gets in a sport fishing yacht of this vintage. Large enough to handle rough weather yet agile enough for a couple to easily handle, the standard three-stateroom interior has the master suite amidships, VIP queen berth (or popular crossover berths) forward and two full heads. Finished with high-gloss teak cabinetry, the salon’s versatile layout, large windows and full 6’8" headroom create a remarkably open ambiance. The galley features a four pullout Sub Zero fridge/freezers and a large countertop for entertaining. The Viking 55’s huge 153 square foot cockpit is fitted with a bait prep center, freezer, two in-deck baitwells, fish box and direct access to the engine room. The flybridge — with wraparound helm console and single lever controls — provides seating for a small crowd. MAN diesels cruise the Viking 55 Convertible at 30 knots and reach a top speed in excess of 35+ knots.

Viking 55 "WOUND UP" Model Overview

Like many Vikings, the 55 is a blue-water overachiever, which says a lot about any new model. But in this case, it means even more because of the big boat shoes it has been designed to fill.

In 1996, Viking introduced its first 55 Convertible at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show. This model broke new ground with style and out gunned the competition not only with its performance but with its movie star popularity that trampled the competition in sales. Over the next five years, Viking would build over 150 55 Convertibles. No other boat by any manufacturer in this size range would even come close.

Performance wise, the 55 Convertible eagerly rushes to top speeds in excess of 35 knots. Like to fish offshore, but sleep late? This ride is for you.

The cockpit and flying bridge have been designed around the experiences of a thousand fishing tournaments, but you donu2019t have to be a hard core blue water angler to appreciate the built in conveniences and amenities like a center console helm station, or observation mezzanine in the split level cockpit.
