We are pleased to report that the recent launch of the first 42 ST (Sport Tower) garnered significant interest, so we are following up with a more detailed presentation. Although less than half the LOA of our new flagship, the Viking 92 Convertible, coming next year, our exciting 42 ST is everything you have come to expect from Viking as we approach our 50th year building a better boat every day.

The 42 ST utilizes a proven platform in the Viking 42 hull, which was expressly designed to accommodate the ZF Zeus articulating pod drive propulsion system matched to 600 mhp Cummins QSC diesels, providing a cruise speed of 30-31 knots and a top end of 35-36 knots. Hydraulic actuators lift the cockpit mezzanine to access the engines, diesel generator, and other mechanical systems.

The center console helm station provides superb visibility, ample room for an Atlantic Marine Electronics' navigation and communication package, and loads of seating, including three pedestal helm chairs, and port and starboard lounge seating with stowage below. Rods and reels stow in overhead compartments in the fiberglass hardtop. The rugged Palm Beach Towers' tuna tower provides a second helm, an ideal solution for negotiating skinny water traveling through the Bahamas, and adds tournament mettle when fishing offshore for billfish and tuna.

A roomy air conditioned salon beckons after a great day on the water, while the galley is well-equipped for whipping up quick snacks on the run as well as more formal meals. Forward, the master stateroom features a custom queen-size walk-around berth, while the aft cabin offers the convenience of twin berths. The 42 ST showcases the design and expertise of our subsidiaries Palm Beach Towers and Atlantic Marine Electronics.
