If you are in the market for a Viking 38 Billfish, "Instigator" should be considered.
The 38 Billfish’s cockpit, which measures 109 square feet, is equipped with a laminated in-deck mounting plate for fighting chair, rocket launcher, or table installations. Other big-boat features include in-deck insulated fish boxes port and starboard, a walk-through transom door and liftgate, a bait freezer with upper tray, a transom fish box and live well, rod holders, tackle storage, and fresh and raw-water washdowns. Two-person, mezzanine-style seats flank the centerline walkthrough, and there’s refrigerated drink storage, as well as ample general storage throughout. The 38 Billfish’s air-conditioned command deck holds a salon-like living area that includes a port-side U-shaped dinette and a teak hi-lo table. A comfortable lounge to starboard also serves as rod storage. This 38 Billfish is equipped with the optional second lower helm station on the starboard side, which provides immediate access to the cockpit.
Like her convertible brethren, the 38 Billfish’s flybridge is designed with a tournament-style center console walk-around helm. The 38 Billfish has Palm Beach-style controls and power-assist hydraulic steering. Seating includes a single Release Marine teak chair (a second helm chair is optional) and lounges to port and starboard and a forward-console seat. A three-sided Costa Clear enclosure provides weather protection and gin-clear visibility. Viking subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics has installed an A-to-Z package of navigation and communication equipment making this boat turnkey ready.
Below deck, the 38 Billfish makes full use of its 14-foot beam to maximize comfort and utility. Hand-
finished, teak joinery and Amtico flooring complement an elegant climate-controlled living environment. The private head, which is conveniently located immediately to port of the companionway stairs, has a large walk-in shower with satin nickel fixtures, an attractive Corian-topped vanity with sink and storage, and an upper medicine cabinet. The starboard-side L-shaped galley is fully appointed with a Corian countertop, a two-burner electric stove, a microwave/convection oven, cabinet storage, and under-counter drawer-style refrigeration with a built-in ice maker.
Rest up in the private forward stateroom. There’s plenty of storage, with a pair of hanging lockers with drawers underneath as well as a port-side rod locker. The island queen layout also features a starboard-side upper storage cabinet.
For ease of maintenance, each engine, and other critical machinery is located beneath electrically-actuated hatches in the command deck area. The Billfish is designed and built with many of the same mechanical systems, components, and technologies found on larger Vikings. Examples include the Delta-T engine room ventilation system and a fire suppression system that’s automatically or manually operated and tied into the main engine and generator ignitions.
Running gear includes Class “S” pitch tolerance propellers with dynamic balancing and bronze struts, seacocks, and rudders. The engine room, lazarette, and forward bilges are painted with Snow White Awlgrip for increased visibility and ease of maintenance. A large centerline hatch gives you quick access to the engines, Seakeeper SK 6 gyro, and fuel tank fittings. Powered with twin Cummins QSB6.7 diesels with 550 MHP, estimated top speed is 35-plus knots with a cruise of 31 knots.
