This fresh water Viking 40 convertible was designed by the in house design team at Viking Yachts by Bruce Wilson. Introduced at the New York Boat Show in 1973 with a production run of 10 years a very successful model with 270 hulls built. Jack Horner did a review of the Viking 40 Convertible in 2004 and described Viking as a successful pioneer in composite material boat building. Few problems are found with the hull and are usually related to improper damage repair and improper hardware instillation and thru hull fittings by former owners. The hull has a solid composite laminate bottom with cored hull sides and deck. This 40 has wide side decks and a large open fore-deck The aft cockpit is also wide open and approximately 100 sq ft for fishermen or entertaining, making for a great cruiser or fishing rig.
