First Look at Valhalla 46

The largest of the line to date, this one is a beauty


January 7, 2021

Based on the success of the Valhalla Boatworks center consoles, the company has announced the next chapter of its evolution: the V-46. The largest of the lineup, which currently includes 33-, 37- and 41-foot models, the flagship will certainly set standards for performance, fishability, and engineering in her class.

“We’ve established Valhalla Boatworks as a dominating force in the center-console market,” says Viking President and CEO Pat Healey. “The response has truly been tremendous as we approach 70 Valhallas delivered in our first year of production.”

The Valhalla 46 takes the series to an entirely new level, broadening its appeal through additional accommodations and amenities while maintaining its fishing DNA. “We never stop innovating, fine-tuning and staying out in front of the needs of our owners and the marine industry,” says Healey. “The V-46 is a result of that commitment.”

As with the previous Valhalla designs, the V-46 uses a Michael Peters Yacht Design double-stepped hull, along with an S-shaped sheer, double chines, and a tumblehome transom. The larger LOA and 13-foot, 4-inch beam allow for an air-conditioned cabin with over six feet of headroom, which is accessed through a console door on the port side.

Another of the boat’s notable features is a dedicated machinery room. This space houses an 8-kW diesel generator as well as batteries, distribution panel and charger, and hot-water heater, with access to the helm electronics.

The V-46 can be powered with either quad Mercury or Yamaha outboards. Both packages utilize fly-by-wire electric power steering and are available with joystick control and GPS station-keeping systems. With a nearly 700-gallon fuel capacity, the V-46 has plenty of range. The Valhalla 46 will make its world premiere at the Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks VIP Preview in Riviera Beach, Florida, on January 29 and 30, 2021.
