Manufacturer Provided Description

While it has been a tradition at Viking to introduce new models on a regular basis, for each boat that is launched, there are others waiting in the wings on our design department’s drawing boards. Rather than adjusting to market trends, the forward thinking philosophy that drives the company provides a backlog of future models. Two such models are the Viking 42 Convertible and the Viking 42 Open.

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. Initial specifications call for the pod drive system.

At first blush, the Viking 42 Open, which utilizes the same hull form, appears to be the ideal day boat with rakish good looks. Frankly, it is much more boat. The standard layout features a forward stateroom, twin berths beneath the command deck, a full head and shower, a compact galley to starboard and a dinette to port. Also available is an alternative layout with accommodations for four in two private staterooms along with two heads, each with a fiberglass shower stall. The berths tucked in beneath the command bridge boost the sleeping capacity to six. This space becomes available 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.

Boat History

Original Owners ordered this Beautiful Viking making it their third Viking. When ordering boat was extensively equipped with most Viking options and upgrades. Kept at their Private Dock in season and stored at the Viking Plant during the Winter. During that time owner had Viking do what ever was needed. Their Primary use was Cruising to Long Island and Block Island. Secondary was enjoying Offshore Fishing. He and his wife gave this boat the utmost care. 

Sold this Viking to it's current Owner in 2016. The Surveyor noted in the survey report as being in "Bristol Condition" and still is! Owners like the first ones use the boat for Cruising and Offshore fishing. With the Boat already extensively equipped the only equipment added by the current owner has been a Custom Release Teak Cockpit Table and Battle Saddle! Docked and Stored at Onset Bay Marina.

This Viking has been given the best of care very well equipped and has never been South of New Jersey

If your particular and wanting that Nicer Boat with Very Low Hours you will want to inspect.
