Overview

The Viking Yacht Company has led the marine industry for 55 years in all aspects of boat design and construction, committed to producing innovative new yachts on a consistent basis. So it should come as no surprise that for every new Viking introduced, our in-house design and engineering teams have other models waiting for their turn in the spotlight.

Such is the case with our Billfish series. It is with great pride that we introduce our 46 Billfish, set to debut at the 2019 Viking Dealer Meeting & Sea Trial Event, September 9 through 12 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At this same event Viking will also unveil its 38 Open Billfish, the stablemate to the new 38 Billfish that launched at the Viking VIP Preview in Riviera Beach, Florida, February 1st and 2nd.

“Our history has been to give our owners room to grow within a particular Viking family of boats, whether you’re talking about our convertibles, our open express and sport boats or our motor yachts,” says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. “Now we’re simply following through with this type of product growth and diversity with the Billfish. We’re extremely excited, and are sure these boats will meet and exceed all expectations.”

The 46 BF will excel as either an owner/operator or captained Viking. Offering simplicity and ease of maintenance, she’s a ready-to-go fishing machine equipped for inshore and offshore missions as well as a versatile cruising boat with reliable inboard diesel power.

Cockpit & Command Deck
The 140-square-foot cockpit has room for the entire crew or family. The cockpit sole is built with a laminated in-deck mounting plate for fighting chair, rocket launcher or table installations. Standard equipment and features include a cockpit bait freezer with upper tray, in-deck insulated fish boxes port and starboard with overboard drainage, a walk-through transom door and lift gate, a transom fish box and live well, rod holders, tackle storage and fresh and sea-water wash downs. Two-person, mezzanine-style seats flank the centerline walkthrough, and there’s refrigerated drink storage in the starboard mezzanine step, as well as ample general stowage throughout.

The 46 Billfish’s command deck can be completely enclosed and is climate-controlled. “It’s perfect for anglers who want to get off their feet and cool down as the boat moves from one spot to the next,” says David. The command deck features a salon-like living area with a roomy U-shaped lounge and hi-lo table and a lounge that extends along the starboard side. Both seating areas hold rod storage underneath.

Like our legendary Viking convertibles, the 46 Billfish’s flybridge is designed with a tournament-style center console walk-around helm. The 46 Billfish has Palm Beach-style controls and power-assist hydraulic steering. Seating includes a single Release Marine teak chair (a second helm chair is optional) and lounges to port and starboard and a forward console seat. Our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics can build and install a complete package of navigation and communication equipment to deliver the boat turnkey ready.

Features

Accommodations
Rest up and recharge in the 46 Billfish’s air-conditioned cabin. Featuring high-gloss teak cabinetry and custom Amtico flooring, the fully appointed starboard-side galley has an L-shaped Corian countertop, a two-burner electric stove, a microwave/convection oven, cabinet storage and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with a built-in ice maker. The private head, which is conveniently located immediately to port of the companionway stairs, has a large walk-in shower with satin nickel fixtures, an attractive Corian-topped vanity with sink and storage and a medicine cabinet with mirrored doors. Easily accessible upper and lower bunks on the port side await weary anglers, and there’s a hanging locker only a few steps away. The first-class accommodations continue in the private forward stateroom, with its island queen bed, a hanging locker, upper storage cabinetry and a flat-screen TV with stereo, speakers and DVD player.

Efficient and Durable
As Viking continues to develop the Billfish series, our building methods and materials have gained efficiency, which adds even more value to these boats. A modified vinylester resin is used in the entire hull skin. End-grain balsa and closed-cell foam are used as coring materials in selected areas for optimized strength and stiffness while minimizing weight. The integral fiberglass fuel tank, sealed to the hull with resin foam, is resin infused with balsa coring on all sides for stiffness. The hull-to-deck joint is mechanically fastened every three inches and fiberglassed inside.

Viking Engineering
The Billfish is designed and built with many of the same mechanical systems, components and technologies found on larger Vikings. Examples include the Delta-T engineroom ventilation system and a fire suppression system that’s automatically or manually operated and tied into the main engine and generator ignitions.
Running gear includes Class “S” pitch tolerance propellers with dynamic balancing and bronze struts, seacocks and rudders.

The engineroom, lazarette and forward bilges are painted with Snow White Awlgrip for increased visibility and ease of maintenance. A large centerline hatch gives you quick access to the engines and optional Seakeeper SK 6 gyro. Twin Cummins QSM11 715MHP diesels provide the standard power for the 46 Billfish, while twin MAN I6-800 CRM 800MHP are optional.

The 38 Open’s command deck also has ample seating, with port and starboard L-shaped lounges and storage below. A raised centerline command station gives the driver excellent sightlines and is equipped with a fiberglass helm pod, power-assist hydraulic steering with stainless steel wheel and Palm Beach style controls. Viking’s Palm Beach Towers can outfit the 38 Open with a custom tuna tower with a second helm and a buggy top.

Like her convertible brethren, the 38 Billfish’s flybridge is designed with a tournament-style center console walk-around helm. Like the 38 Open, the 38 Billfish has Palm Beach style controls and power-assist hydraulic steering. Seating includes a single Release Marine teak chair (a second helm chair is optional) and lounges to port and starboard and a forward console seat. A three-sided Costa Clear enclosure provides weather protection. For both the 38 Billfish and 38 Open, our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics can build and install an A-to-Z package of navigation and communication equipment to deliver the boat turnkey ready.

Day & Night Livability
For accommodations below, each boat has a unique and functional configuration. The 38 Billfish dedicates much of its space for overnight livability, with a forward stateroom, an L-shaped galley and a head with enclosed shower. The 38 Open has a layout geared more toward day boating, featuring a starboard-side sofa with storage. The galley and head with enclosed shower are positioned on the port side. Both galleys are appointed with Corian countertops, two-burner electric stoves, microwave/convection ovens, cabinet storage and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with built-in ice makers.

The 38 Billfish is offered with island queen or crossover berth arrangements and is equipped with two hanging lockers, while the 38 Open has a lower double bunk and an upper single with a starboard-side hanging locker.

The hull-to-deck joint is mechanically fastened every three inches and fiberglassed inside.

Viking Engineering
For ease of maintenance, each engine and other critical machinery is located beneath electrically-actuated hatches in the command deck area. The Billfish is designed and built with many of the same mechanical systems, components and technologies found on larger Vikings. Examples include the Delta-T engineroom ventilation system and a fire suppression system that’s automatically or manually operated and tied into the main engine and generator ignitions.

Running gear includes Class “S” pitch tolerance propellers with dynamic balancing and bronze struts, seacocks and rudders. The engineroom, lazarette and forward bilges are painted with Snow White Awlgrip for increased visibility and ease of maintenance. A large centerline hatch exposes the house and starting batteries, the 9kW generator, and the optional Seakeeper SK 6 gyro stabilizer. Both the 38 Billfish and 38 Open are powered with twin Cummins QSB6.7 diesels with 550 MHP.

The 38 Billfish will make her debut at the Viking VIP Preview, hosted by the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida, February 1st and 2nd. Introductions of the 46 Billfish and 38 Open are slated for later in 2019 and both will debut during the fall boat show season.
