Built on a lengthened and reworked Viking 46 Convertible hull, Viking used the extra length of the 48 Convertible to create a huge, 144-square-foot fishing cockpit—still the largest to be found in a flybridge boat this size. Unlike the 46, the Viking 48 has a solid front windshield and a much-improved engine room. Like all Viking models, she’s heavily built on a low-deadrise modified-V hull with a wide beam, a shallow keel, and balsa-cored hull sides. In the original two-stateroom interior the galley and dinette are at midlevel. The 48’s massive cockpit is fitted with two in-deck fish boxes, a tackle center, and a transom door—all standard. The flybridge has seating for eight. Additional features include wide side decks, a molded pulpit, and a spacious engine room. The Viking 48 will cruise with the 735hp 8V92s (standard in later models), the cruising speed is a fast 27–28 knots with a top speed of close to 30 knots.
