Viking 52 Convertible

Viking's new 52 Convertible offers all of the legendary fishing and handling characteristics of its larger sisterships in a somewhat smaller package. Fishing features include a 145-square-foot cockpit with a built-in bait freezer, tackle and rigging center, and large fishbox under the cockpit sole. There are two additional storage wells beneath the deck, one of which can be converted to a 40-gallon live well, plus raw and fresh water washdown and a walk-through transom door.

Belowdecks, the 52 offers a luxurious three-stateroom layout with the master stateroom to port, complete with a private head. The forward guest stateroom can be ordered with either a queen berth or upper/lower berths, and the starboard guest stateroom also features upper/lower berths. A fully equipped galley includes drawer-style refrigeration, plus a convection/ microwave and an electric stovetop.

The engine room is accessed from the cockpit and is finished in bright white Awlgrip. A 21 kW generator comes standard, and standard power is twin ten-cylinder 1,050-hp MAN 2840LE403 turbocharged diesels, which Viking claims will produce a 30-knot cruise speed. Optional power is available for cruise speeds close to 40 knots. Viking Yachts, New Gretna, NJ; (609) 296-6000; www.vikingyachts.com.
