Join YachtWorld and Marilyn DeMartini for a walkthrough of the newest Valhalla V-46 center console boat, a stunning model that expands on the popular Viking-built V-series line up that originally debuted back in February 2019. These center consoles keep getting bigger and bigger, with this latest vessel featuring a cabin, increased seating and up to 1,800 horsepower (thanks to quad Mercury 450R outboard engines). A true, high-performance luxury center console boat, the Viking Yacht Company has begun the next chapter in the evolution of Valhalla Boatworks with the V-46.
The vessel’s patented Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD) double-stepped hull has a length of 46’7″ and a 13’4″ beam with a 2’8″ draft (with the motors up). She also possesses the same signature design traits (S-shaped sheer, doubles chines, tumblehome transom bustle), aesthetic enhancements (teak toerail and transom) and 360-degree fishing prowess of the V Series.
Propulsion And Power Packages
The V-46 can either be powered by quad Mercury V8 450R outboard engines, or alternatively by Yamaha V8 425 outboards. Both power packages utilizes fly-by-wire electric power steering available with joystick control and GPS station-keeping systems.The boat has a nearly 700-gallon fuel capacity giving her enough legs for long offshore fishing days or extended island hopping and cruising.
Console And Helm
The console, helm seating modules and the forward lounge are all elevated on a 7-inch-high platform, which maximizes visibility and allows for increased interior volume below. The console maintains the streamlined, clean design of the V Series, with its controls and information displays positioned for ease of access and viewing. An expansive recessed black acrylic helm panel can hold three electronics displays up to 22 inches each.
Backlit-labeled, flush-mounted Bocatech switches line the lower dash and her engine controls and Zipwake interceptor trim control panel are positioned to starboard of the centerline helm pod (available in teak or faux teak). There is an Edson stainless steel wheel with power knob and a quick downward glance allows for regular performance checks via the high-definition engine monitor. The fuel management and Hooker sea chest systems can be controlled at the helm, as well. Fuel-tank selector switches and variable speed control knobs are located inside the port-side glove box. Four convenient stainless steel cupholders are nested neatly in the console.
Cabin Interior And Berths
A massive console functions as an air-conditioned cabin and through the port-side console door, a powder-coated pedestal with teak stair treads leads to an inviting living space. Forward, a dinette with U-shaped seating and bolstered backrest surrounds a drop-down table that converts to a queen berth.
On the starboard side is the galley, which features a polished Corian countertop, stainless steel sink, brushed nickel and chrome faucet, two-burner recessed stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven and cabinet storage. Directly aft of the galley is the private head with a molded-in vanity with freshwater sink and faucet, toilet and shower.
