Viking Yachts has earned a large piece of the production convertible market building boats with performance and features that were once available only from custom builders. As the serious anglers that invested in these boats ventured farther from the dock in pursuit of the bite, boats grew in size, complication, and capability. Bigger is better when covering long distances, but in terms of fishing, too big can be a handicap when wiggling around a fish. There is a sweet spot in my mind for those who want the best of both worlds and Viking's new 46 Convertible is spot on.
The new 46 Convertible replaces a 45-foot model introduced in 2003. A new hull form with moderate propeller pockets and 12 degrees of deadrise serves as the platform for updated interior details and styling that reflect the builder's latest thinking. While some convertible builders have wandered from tradition, Viking has embraced it and the 46 looks like a sportfisherman should. The position of her house is a result of the length required for her cockpit and sight lines from the helm determined the cut of her bridge. Her soft S-sheer links the tasteful rake of her stem to the soft corners of her transom. Sweeping house and bridge-face radii add to the length visually.

Following rave reviews at its premiere showings, the Viking 46 Convertible sets uncompromising standards in its class. Built to deliver the utmost quality and performance, the convertible showcases Viking’s relentless commitment to excellence.
Starting with an all new hull and running surface, the 46 Convertible takes extreme advantage of the ground breaking design heralded of the Viking Yacht Company. The performance and sea keeping qualities of its stable mates validated Viking’s design, engineering and production teams’ pursuit to take Viking’s world wide recognition for outstanding quality and achievements to still higher levels. The 46 Convertible follows this overwhelming success in a slightly smaller envelope making it an ideal choice for the owner/operator seeking Viking’s more than five decades of boat building expertise in a scaled down version of its tournament winning champions.
The Viking 46 Convertible easily sets itself apart from the competition with its performance. The running surface offers the clear benefits derived from its convex deadrise shape with an aggressively raked entry and sharpened waterline sections. The convex deadrise adds form to the bottom and along with the wide beam, which carries well aft, creates increased lifting motion in a head sea. This buoyancy combined with the sea parting ability of the convex hull delivers a noticeably soft and dry entry. Running strakes along the bottom, as well as the knife-like waterline sections make spray a distant memory. The result is a big boat ride in an overall modest-size package.
Performance is further enhanced with the inclusion of weight saving features including vacuum-bagged end grain balsa in the bottom, laminated end grain balsa in the hull and top sides, as well as resin infused fiberglass fuel, freshwater and holding tanks. It should also be noted that because Viking designs its own tankage, each cell fits low in the hull structure for enhanced stability and maximum capacity and draw. Prop pockets in the new hull reduce the draft to 4 ft. 5 in.
30 knot cruising plus speeds and a range of over 350 nautical miles with 1,100 mhp V10 MANs.
