From the legendary Viking Yachts comes a new breed of center console that sets revolutionary standards
Viking makes Valhalla boats and proudly introduced Valhalla Boatworks in 2019. Through this revolutionary company, Viking designs and builds high-performance center consoles. These center consoles maintain the same Viking quality, craftsmanship and expertise. Such expertise has led the marine industry for 55 years. Valhalla Boatworks mirror’s Viking’s industry-leading customer service and dealer network. The V Series consists of outboard-powered deep-V monohulls. The models range from 33 feet to the recent announcement of a 55 footer, the V-55. Versatility makes these boats excel as luxurious sport cruisers. They also double as yacht tenders or hard-core fishing boats.
Valhalla Boatwork’s Viking DNA
The V-33, V-37, V-41, V-46, and now V-55 are a cooperative effort. The Viking Design & Engineering team and Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD) collaborate on these amazing vessels. The V Series utilizes MPYD’s patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel running surface. The running surface reduces drag while increasing speed, stability and efficiency.
“It’s the most advanced and proven stepped-hull design in the world,”
“The twin steps and tunnel not only give you fast and efficient performance but also precise handling and a very stable ride.”Viking Design Manager David Wilson.
Each V Series model follows in the footsteps of its convertible stablemate. They are each set up to become the leading center console in their class. The engineering, experience and boatbuilding skill instilled in every model makes this possible. The design traits of Viking convertibles are evident throughout these center consoles. Proud bows, sloping S-shaped sheers, double forward chines, teak helm pods and toe rails, and mezzanine seating are some of the hallmarks. Viking engineering and mechanical prowess shine through as well. Customized Seakeeper installations maintain storage or deck space and mechanical space. Plumbing and electrical systems maintain unmatched levels of perfection.
Let Freedom Ring
The features on the V Series are impressive, giving owners the freedom to personalize the boat for their geographic region and type of use. Owners can Dress each boat to desire with faux teak helm pods and toe rails and teak forward backrests. Other customizables include hardtop underside colors to match the hull, and deck box LED and underwater lights. Premium upholstery can also include Bentley stitching.
No matter the model, the captain has gin-clear visibility. All models pose a wraparound Costa Clear or solid glass windshield. A black acrylic panel spans the width of the console for flush-mounted electronics. The fly-by-wire engine controls have available joystick and power-assist steering. These give the captain effortless vessel command. Quick downward glances allow for regular performance checks via the high-definition engine-monitor. Cupholders for convenience nest in shapely recessed areas, and there’s a port-side glovebox with a 12V and a USB outlet. Bocatech switches – grouped according to function – line the bottom of the panel.
Have a Seat
The seating arrangements give owners the flexibility to adapt to changing fishing and cruising needs. All models come standard with a forward console lounge with dry storage. The Costa Marine upholstered bench seating at the helm features storage and Gemlux rod holders. Cupholders are also found on the backrest.
The aft end of this tooled seating module hides a slide-out cooler topped with a seat cushion. Helm seating options include Llebroc Billfish or Release Marine chairs. Another option is Costa Marine bench seating. Each vessel features flip-up bolsters and armrests. Integrated GG Schmitt transom seats and forward bench seating with backrests can also make a great addition to your V Series vessel. Both options position themselves to maintain maximum deck space.
The console, helm seating module and forward seats all maintain toekick space. This space allows for increased safety and balance. One convenience feature includes a standard port-side dive door. There are also several options such as an anchor chute with plow anchor and windlass as well as a bow thruster.
Pulled From the Top Shelf
The resources of Viking’s integrated company are at the disposal of Valhalla Boatworks. Viking installs standard and custom components of each Valhalla build in-house. This guarantees turnkey delivery. Hardtop package options include top-shelf components in flawless installations. Spreader lights, molded overhead electronics pods, and electric teaser reels are also available.
The consoles of these boats feature a molded-in vanity with freshwater sink. Included is a retractable shower wand, storage under the seating, and an electric head. Also included is access to electronics and the electrical distribution panel. Models come with mechanical and electrical components and systems. This includes racing-style trim tabs and a D/C pressurized freshwater system. There is also color-coded, labeled and numbered wiring with corresponding drawings. Such is an electrical system signature of Viking. Seakeeper installations are engineered in all Valhalla models.
Simply the Best – Created by the Best
These beasts are created by Viking to change the Center Console scene and change the world of these high performance models. Yamaha or Mercury outboards with horsepower ratings from 300 to 425 provide the Valhalla power. The efficiency of the stepped hulls and these engines deliver the best range possible. Power-assist hydraulic steering is the standard. Joystick helm control systems with GPS station-keeping remain optional on all models. The V series debuted at the Viking/Valhalla Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event in September 2019. They have continued to revolutionize the boating industry since.
