The Valhalla Boatworks V-33 is an excellent entry-level center-console yacht designed and built with Viking pedigree. For those that have always wanted a new Viking, just in a smaller and more manageable size, the V-33 is the perfect step in your boating life. Designed with the ability to be customized by the owner, the Valhalla series are an excellent option as a day cruising boat, a hardcore fishing machine, or simply a tender that matches your larger Viking Sportfish.
Valhalla quality is unmatched in the 30-40 foot center-console market thanks to Viking's decades of experience in building quality fishing boats. All materials used are top quality as is the equipment selected on board. The patented Michael Peters Yacht Design stepped tunnel hull provides exceptional performance, speed, and turning capabilities. SI Yachts looks forward to helping you customize and outfit your new V33 or other Valhalla model. We can even take your boat in on trade!

What engine options do I have on the V-33?
Viking knows there is a strong sense of pride when it comes to engine manufacturers. The debate about Ford versus Chevy will give you a good basis for the conversation about Yamaha versus Mercury. Wherever your allegiance lies, Viking has given owners the ability to outfit their Valhalla with either brand. For those wanting Mercury outboards, the V33 can be equipped with either:
If Yamaha is your brand, Viking has options for that too. The V33 can be outfitted with twin Yamaha F300's with or without the Seastar Optimus Joystick system.
What features are available on the Valhalla V-33?
Here is a great overhead graphic of many of the features found on the V33:
The seating arrangement options on the V33 are plentiful and offer great flexibility for owners wanting to use the boat in specific ways. The standard layout includes a forward console lounge with dry storage and additional forward seating in the bow can be added for more of a cruising boat format. The helm seating again offers a choice between the standard upholstered bench seating or teak helm chairs from Release Marine or Llebroc Billfish. Another option includes adding GG Schmitt flip-up transom seats and forward bench seating with backrests that are designed to keep the large amount of deck space for fishing.
Speaking of fishing, the Valhalla V33 is loaded down with standard fishing features and plenty of options to pile more on. Standard on the V-33 is the raised transom live-well, but additional live-wells can be added to the bow in place of the forward seating. This option gives anglers fishing from the bow a quick option to grab and pitch more bait. Big fishboxes are built right into the deck and rod/tackle storage is abundant. Owners will also love the handling provided by the racing-style trim tabs that come standard as well.
Can I get a Seakeeper Gyro added to my boat?
While a Seakeeper does not come standard on the V-33, it is an option that can be added. Viking also made it easy by integrating a dedicated space centerline in the deck for a Seakeeper SK 3 model. The Seakeeper mounting system is already installed standard and is molded to the stringer system on the hull. This can be added right at the Viking factory as your boat is being built.
What are my options for adding a hardtop or tower to the V33?
For owners wanting a hardtop on their center-console, a fiberglass unit can be installed that includes polished aluminum supports and can have the underside painted to match the boat. It includes molded-in Lumitec mirage spreader lights, rod rocket launchers, and an overhead electronics pod. A marlin tower from Palm Beach Towers can also be added and includes a removable sunshade.
Gemlux outrigger bases can be installed along with either Rupp fixed outrigger poles, Rupp 18' carbon-fiber telescoping poles, or Gemlux 22' carbon-fiber telescoping poles.
What brand of electronics can I have on my V-33?
Much like the argument over Mercury and Yamaha power, captains loyal to a specific electronics brand can also have their choice on each Valhalla model. Both Garmin and Simrad electronics packages are offered along with an optional entertainment package. All electronics packages can be installed on your Valhalla right at the Viking factory for optimal quality control.
