Fajardo, Puerto Rico
Manufacturer Provided Description
The Viking 46 Open is one more example of Viking’s dominance in building high performance luxury yachts by delivering outstanding quality, value and versatility. Designed for both fishing and cruising, the 46 Open is bursting with blue-water capabilities and yacht club panache.
Tournament as well as casual fishermen will appreciate the attention to detail in the 121 square foot cockpit garnered from the thousands of hours Viking puts into competitive fishing every year. The cockpit features a molded non-skid deck for secure footing, a laminated mounting plate in the deck for a fighting chair, a rocket launcher and table, thirsty scuppers, a walk-through transom door with lift gate and locking latches on the deck hatches, which use stainless-steel gas springs. Insulated recessed in-deck boxes accommodate the catch of the day and clean up fast with a powerful pump out system. The boxes can be configured in a variety of ways and also be used for gear stowage, ice chipper output or plumbed for an available live well. As you expect from Viking, nothing is left to chance so the cockpit is well appointed with amenities such as flush rod holders, recessed hardware, fresh and raw-water wash down systems, tackle stowage, rounded coamings and more.
The airy command bridge deck is framed front and sides with a wraparound windshield, equipped with wipers, washers and an integrated enclosure track. Three Murray Product adjustable helm seats afford ideal sight lines and the centerline helm is equipped with power assisted hydraulic steering and electronic engine controls. Recessed electronic boxes with clear acrylic fronts protect the equipment from the elements and remain viewable in any weather for safety and security. In addition, two radio boxes flank the helm and provide a convenient location for accessory controls and switches. Abaft the command area, there is an L-shaped lounge to port with rod stowage below and a molded console to starboard with stowage and a refrigerator/ice maker.
In the engine room, Viking’s engineering benchmarks are industry famous. Engine choices include the standard 900 mhp V8 MANs or 1,100 mhp V10 MANs. The common rail diesels are mounted to powder-coated structural steel web frame beds that are secured to intermediate vacuum bagged composite bulkheads, which ensure drive train alignment for silky smooth trolling and minimal vibration. A 17.5 kW Onan generator supplies electrical power underway and a voltage stabilizer isolation transformer delivers clean dockside power. For clean, dry engine combustion air, there is a Delta T ventilation system with supply and discharge fans for proper fresh air supply and water intrusion suppression. The engine room is painted in bright white Awlgrip for easier maintenance and all daily engine fluid checks are inboard for accessibility. A variety of options, including a tuna tower, outriggers, and a fiberglass swim platform allows infinite customization possibilities.
As with all Vikings, the 46 Open can be ordered with navigation, communication and entertainment systems provided by Atlantic Marine Electronics. Similarly, a tuna tower, drop-down electronics boxes and teaser reel compartments can be ordered through Palm Beach Towers. Both AME and PBT are Viking sister companies and their services allow the Viking 46 Open to be delivered turnkey ready.
