Cockpit

The 44 Open has a huge 119-square-foot cockpit that’s just a few steps away from the command bridge deck. A comfortable mezzanine is the perfect spot to watch the spread, with storage below and a drink box in the step, just like the larger Vikings. Add a rocket launcher or small fighting chair and she’s ready to fish against any boat in the world.

Helm Station

The command bridge has a centerline helm station with pod in either teak or fiberglass. Single-lever engine controls and a polished stainless wheel look great, and there’s space for a bank of 3 17-inch multi-function displays. Switches for ship systems and the mics for the VHF radios are to starboard, protected in a separate compartment.

A conventional drive system with a pair of MAN I6 800 CRM diesels fits nicely in the engine room. These engines, rated at 800 hp each, are matched to Veem wheels and produce a 30-knot cruise speed and a top end of 34.5 to 35 knots.

Galley

With a beam of 16 feet, 4 inches, the 44 Open has a spacious salon highlighted by the easy-to-care-fo Amtico flooring and a 28-inch flat-screen television. The galley has Corian countertops, a recessed sink and electric cooktop with microwave/convection oven, plus under-counter drawer-style refrigeration.
