The new Valhalla Boatworks V-37 is the middle child in the new line-up from the legendary Viking Yacht Company. This outboard-powered deep-v center-console will debut as the best in its class thanks to the patented stepped hull design which improves both performance and maneuverability. Owners will have multiple options to customize their new boat for serious fishing or day cruising. If you have any questions about Valhalla pricing, options, or availability, please contact our main office at (718) 984-7676 or by email at Sales@SIYachts.com.
The V-37 will shine in a crowded center-console market thanks to Viking using its decades of knowledge, state-of-the-art facilities, the best materials possible, and the same quality-control its sportfishing yachts go through. This is a big, speedy center-console that has the fuel and engine capacity to take you farther.

What power options does the V-37 have?
As with most Vikings, owners have a lot of choices to make so that their finished boat is exactly how they want it. The Valhalla series is no different and the V37 has multiple outboard configurations. With horsepower ratings from 300 to 425 horsepower in twin or triple configurations, plus the ability to choose between Yamaha or Mercury, and the V37 can appeal to a wide variety of situations.
For Mercury, owners can select either triple Mercury Verado 300's or triple Verado 400's for a total of 1200HP. For Yamaha, the V37 can be outfitted with triple 300's or twin 425's.
What features does the V37 include?
Here is a great overhead graphic of many of the fishing or cruising features found on the V-37:
From bow to stern, the V-37 includes the best equipment available standard and has many compelling options the owner might look at adding. Starting with the fishing features on board, the cockpit is loaded down. The mezzanine seating is reminiscent of the Viking sportfish models and a great place to watch the action unfold. Standard on the V-37 is the in-transom livewell, several fish boxes built into the deck, a Sea Chest live-well system, lots of rod holders from Gemlux that have been flush-mounted, and plenty of tackle storage. Bow seats can even be removed to add a second live-well for easy access to bait while fishing up front. Even a third live-well can be installed in the cockpit deck.
Want to stand out by dressing up your Valhalla V37? Faux teak helm pods and toe rails along with teak forward backrests are an option to be added and can be particularly stunning when matched with the teak on your larger Viking sportfish or motor yacht. The deck box can also have illuminated lighting added along with premium upholstery with Bentley stitching. Don't forget the underwater lights!
Can I get a Seakeeper Gyro added to my boat?
Viking has designed each Valhalla model to include a dedicated Seakeeper space centerline in the deck. The mounting bracket is attached to the stringer system and comes standard on each model for easy installation. The suggested model is the Seakeeper SK 3.
What kind are my options for a tower or hardtop on the V37?
The V-37 has several options if a hardtop or tower is desired when ordering your boat. A fiberglass hardtop with polished aluminum supports can be added and can be tricked out with matching paint underneath the top, Lumitec mirage spreader lights, rod rocket launchers, and an electronics pod. For those wanting a full tower, Viking's subsidiary company Palm Beach Towers can install a custom fabricated fold-down marlin tower that includes a removable sunshade.
What brand of electronics come on the V-37?
In true Viking fashion, it's all about personal preference and customization when it comes to the electronics on the Valhalla models. Viking offers both a Garmin package and a Simrad package that can both be installed right at the factory for the ultimate quality controlled installation. An entertainment package can also be added.
