Viking Classics: 56 Convertible
Following in the footsteps of the best-selling Viking 55 Convertible, the wider beam and higher speeds of the 56 Convertible continue to impress.
The salon is finished with hand-crafted teak joinery and lush designer furnishings. A 42" plasma TV is housed in the entertainment center to starboard.
Overview: Successor to the iconic Viking 55 Convertible, the Viking 56 Convertible is longer and wider than her predecessor with a sharper entry, increased bow flare, and prop pockets to level the motors. Inside, the accommodations are every bit as luxurious as a European motor yacht. Entering through an electric door, an L-shaped Ultraleather sofa is to port and a teak entertainment cabinet is to starboard. The galley is forward to port, opposite the dinette—the same open-plan layout found in all late-model Viking convertibles. There are three staterooms and two full heads below including an amidships master to port with a walkaround king bed and copious storage areas. The forward VIP cabin was available in two configurations: a island queen berth or an offset double with single bunk to port. The guest stateroom to starboard has two single berths. The 157 square foot cockpit features a large fishbox and two smaller lockers in the sole, one of which can be rigged as a livewell. The console along the aft cabin bulkhead holds a bait prep station, a freezer and five tackle drawers. A factory mezzanine was optional.
