44 Open Express
North Carolina ,
Viking’s reputation for building high performance express models maintains its enviable industry leadership with the announcement of the newest entry, the 44 Open. The Viking 44 Open is a fresh design with a resin infused composite hull and a matrix of fiberglass encapsulated stringers, vacuum bagged cored main and intermediate bulkheads, a customized E-glass lamination schedule and infused fuel and water tanks. An aggressive entry with over six feet of freeboard forward rakes over head seas and its sheer line proudly carries aft with an eye pleasing profile. The command bridge of the 44 Open shares many of the practical and notable aspects of its larger siblings including our signature and tournament proven centerline helm station on a raised platform for enhanced visibility through the one-piece molded fiberglass wraparound windshield. The spacious command deck with a molded nonslip fiberglass sole affords generous seating options including three adjustable pedestal seats with foot rests. As you would expect from Viking’s commitment to build a better boat every day, the lounge backrest lifts to expose a convenient fishing rod stowage area.
A sliding door and a sturdy staircase with stowage and a concealed central vacuum system lead to the salon affording numerous comfort treatments. With its 16 ft. 4 in. beam, the widest of any boat in this class, the salon is particularly noteworthy by taking full advantage of the square footage fostering a prime social area for relaxing and entertaining. Nicely appointed with professional designer touches and furnishings, the salon features custom Amtico flooring, a 28 inch flat screen television and a multi-directional stereo system. Viking’s craftsmanship abounds and the large L-shape lounge creates an inviting atmosphere with a convertible dinette that serves double duty as a meal center with additional sleeping accommodations. The 119 square foot cockpit just steps away from the command bridge deck is tournament ready with flush rod holders, fresh and salt water wash down systems, a transom live well, and a transom door with a lift gate. Under gunwale features include LED rope lighting, wash down spigots, gaff and tag stick stowage, a freshwater fill, and a quick disconnect fitting to the oil exchange system for the engines, transmissions and the 13.5 Cummins Onan generator.
