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.
