Built on a lengthened and reworked Viking 46 Convertible hull, Viking used the extra length of the 48 Convertible to create a huge, 144-square-foot fishing cockpit—still the largest to be found in a flybridge boat this size.

Unlike the 46, the Viking 48 has a solid front windshield and a much-improved engine room.

Like all Viking models, she’s heavily built on a low-deadrise modified-V hull with a wide beam, a shallow keel, and balsa-cored hull-sides.

In the original two-stateroom interior the galley and dinette are at mid- level. In 1989 the Plan “C” arrangement offered an L-shaped dinette on the deckhouse level and two very spacious staterooms.

The 48’s massive cockpit is fitted with two in-deck fish boxes, a tackle center, and a transom door—all standard.

The flybridge has seating for eight. Additional features include wide side decks, a molded pulpit, and a spacious engine room.

With 735hp 8V92s, the cruising speed is a fast 27–28 knots with a top speed of close to 30 knots.
