The new Valhalla Boatworks V-41 is described as being extremely fast with the ability to go farther and fish harder. The V-41 is very impressive in regards to the design, the fit-and-finish, the equipment selected as standard or optional, and of course, the ride. Whether purchasing a Valhalla Boat as a tender for your larger Viking, as a serious fishing center-console, or as a comfortable day boat for cruising, you can customize your Valhalla to meet your specific needs.
"(The Valhalla V41) is designed to be the ultimate billfish-catching center-console," says Ryan Higgins, general sales manager for Valhalla and a tournament-winning captain. "Since the boat will spend a good deal of time trolling, there’s an integrated teaser-reel box in the hardtop radar pod for the Miya Epoch US-6 12-volt teaser reels. It’s rigged with 22-foot carbon-fiber telescoping outriggers with Gemlux heavy-duty bases and plenty of rod holders: 14 flush-mounted in the coaming, 10 more along the sides of the lounge, and six on the hardtop. There’s also forward bench seating, a huge console lounge, three Release Marine helm chairs with electric slides, aft-facing mezzanine seating, and flip-down transom seats."

What power does the Valhalla V-41 have?
The V-41 has multiple outboard power options from Mercury or Yamaha depending upon your taste. The most horsepower possible would include quad Mercury Verado 400HP outboards for a total of 1,600HP. Triple Mercury 400HP outboard engines or quad Mercury V300HP outboard engines are also available. Those wanting Yamaha outboards can select triple Yamaha V8 425XTO with or without the Helm Master Joystick System.
What features does the V-41 include?
Seen below is a great overhead view of many of the different notable features on the V-41:
The Valhalla V41 is designed with your comfort in mind, whether fishing or cruising. Aft mezzanine seating as well as bench seats in the bow can be removed for anglers that want more room to fish or incorporate additional tackle storage, fish boxes, or rod holders. For those wishing to cruise, the seating can be left in place.
In front of the console is the forward lounge seating which is lined with rod holders and has a cooler integrated into the console. Insulated fish boxes are both port and starboard aft and include a Y-valve plumbed to the Whale Gulper pump in the aft lazarette to help keep ice and fish fresh. The main live-well is in the transom and is pressurized with a fiberglass lid. Additional live-wells can be added at the owner's discretion such as in the cockpit deck or into the forward lounge for quick bait access from the bow.
For those that like to dive, there is a portside dive door with a removable stainless swim ladder. Fresh and saltwater wash-downs are standard. All hatches are outfitted with heavy duty gasketing with installation detail molded in for a perfect seal, all of which leave you feeling like this is a well-constructed, durable boat.

What's different about how the V-41 is constructed?
From the closed cell foam core in selected areas of the hull molded fiberglass construction to the blister-resistant modified vinylester resin infusion, the V-41 is extremely well built for light weight and durability. Like all Viking's, only the best materials are used in building Valhalla center-consoles.
Michael Peters Yacht Design, one of the industry's leading yacht designers, implemented their patented Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel running surface for the hull on each Valhalla. This special design reduces drag substantially while also increasing performance, speed, and maneuverability.
Each Valhalla model is described as having "proud bows, gently sloping S-shaped sheers, and double-forward chines." The deep-V shape helps the V-41 gently pierce each wave for a smooth ride. There is simply no better riding or performing center-console on the market today.
Can I get a Seakeeper Gyro on my Valhalla Boat?
Every Valhalla, including the V-41, features a specially designed location centerline for a Seakeeper installation. Even the mounting structure for the Seakeeper comes standard and is molded into the stringer grid. The recommended Seakeeper in the V-41 is the SK 3 model.
Does the Valhalla V-41 come with a tuna tower?
The V-41 has the option to have a fabricated gap tower from Palm Beach Towers, a custom fabricated fold-down Marlin tower with a removable sunshade, or a fiberglass hardtop with polished aluminum supports. Outrigger bases from Gemlux and either fixed or telescoping outrigger poles from Rupp (or Gemlux) can be added as options. Even the underside of the hardtop can be painted to match the color of the hull for a more personal experience.
What kind of electronics come on the V-41?
Just like the options for choosing between Mercury and Yamaha power, Viking has offered owners the ability to stay loyal to their favorite electronics manufacturer. While much can be customized, Viking has options for either Garmin or Simrad packages that are installed by the factory to ensure quality performance.
How much does the Valhalla V41 cost?
The base price of the V-41 is $797,000 with triple Mercury Verado 400hp V10 motors, but clearly you are going to want to add on at least the base package which is going to change the price. This includes things like:
The premium package also has some serious options and will add to the overall cost. The premium package includes:
Choosing an electronics package with the additional entertainment options can increase the cost by more than $50,000. 3 Release Marine Teak Helm Chairs with arms and flip-up bolsters can also be included.
