The Viking Yacht Company has introduced Valhalla Boatworks, a new company dedicated to designing and building high-performance center consoles with Viking’s same quality, craftsmanship and expertise.
“Valhalla Boatworks will allow our dealers and customers to fulfill a strong desire for high-end center consoles built by the Viking Yacht Company,” says Viking President and CEO Patrick Healey. “It’s a very exciting time and another important chapter in our history of building a better boat every day.”
The Valhalla Boatworks V Series consists of three outboard-powered deep-V monohulls from 33 to 41 feet, which are designed to excel as hard-core fishing boats and built to the highest levels of workmanship and fit and finish.
The V-33, V-37 and V-41 are the result of the cooperative effort of the Viking Design and Engineering team and Michael Peters Yacht Design. The V Series utilizes MPYD’s patented stepped-v ventilated tunnel running surface that reduces drag while increasing speed, stability and efficiency.
“It’s the most advanced and proven stepped-hull design in the world,” says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. “The twin steps and tunnel not only give you fast and efficient performance but also precise handling and a very stable ride.”
The same resources of Viking’s vertically integrated company are at the disposal of Valhalla Boatworks, so major components of each build such as hardtops, marlin and gap towers and electronics packages are being manufactured at Viking to guarantee turn-key delivery.
The V-33, V-37 and V-41 are powered by four-stroke outboards with horsepower ratings from 300 to 425 in twin, triple or quad configurations, depending on the model. The efficiency of the stepped hulls and these direct-fuel-injected engines deliver best-in-class fuel economy and range. Power-assist hydraulic steering will be standard and joystick helm control systems will be optional for all three models.
