The Viking 54 sets new milestones of innovation while integrating ideas garnered from sales and owner feedback, as well as thousands of hours logged by our Viking demo teams on the tournament trail. "We're in a constant state of refinement," says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. "Everything from interior and exterior design and accommodations to performance, fishability and ease of operation are evolving."
The 54 presents an eye-pleasing profile that's unmistakably Viking, with signature design traits such as a gently sloping unbroken S-shaped sheer, aggressively raked stem, double chines, hull-side vents and deftly placed exterior feature lines.
Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, the Viking Design and Engineering Department has optimized the 54's running surface for maximum performance. Now an integral part of the design process, our in-house CFD allows us to run numerous virtual sea trials to fine-tune the shape of the hull bottom for increased efficiency. We can also analyze pressure distribution, study trim angle and trim tab effectiveness and modify strakes and chine shape and size.
The hull is built with an engineered composite of fiberglass fabrics and coring that's vacuum-infused with vinylester resin. Utilizing a calculated resin-to-fiberglass ratio, great stiffness and strength is brought to the structure while minimizing weight. The structural bulkheads and fuel tanks (which are customized to the shape of the hull) are also resin infused. The hull-to-deck is through-bolted every three inches and fiberglassed from inside for a rock-solid union.
