Manufacturer Provided Description
With the 44 Convertible, Viking delivers a tournament contender and luxurious cruising yacht equally capable of galloping hard to the East Coast canyons on gnarly weather days or blasting over to the Bahamas in air-conditioned comfort. The 44 C runs on the same proprietary surface as our 44 Open, giving her the high performance of a Viking express fishing boat and the stylish deckhouse, expansive salon, and the grand accommodations of a Viking convertible. The 44 C carries a fierce aerodynamic profile, with a raked bow, sloping sheer and swept-back deckhouse with black-masked windshield. With nearly 6 feet of freeboard, the 44 C’s bow shoulders aside the seas with ease and throws down spray with authority. The boat’s wave-slicing entry gradually flattens moving aft where the deadrise provides lift and support for exceptional performance. The chines and strakes knock down spray, but also contribute to lift and stability. Captains command from an enter console walk-around helm with 360-degree visibility and a clear view of the cockpit. Crew and guests have a choice of port, starboard, or forward seating. The flybridge’s fiberglass overhang throws shade on the mezzanine below while providing space aft of the helm and companion pedestal seats. An available fiberglass hardtop can be ordered with overhead instrumentation and teaser reel compartments, as well as a Costa Clear enclosure. The salon and galley are bathed in high-gloss teak, giving the interior a warm and inviting feel. The salon is large, air-conditioned, and appointed with comfortable seating, dining, and socializing areas. Relax in the L-shaped lounge to starboard with a teak hi-lo table. Forward to port is a raised dinette and settee against a teak bulkhead with cabinetry and a 40-inch flat-screen television. The starboard galley is one step down. Our space-saving split-level design allows for a Corian countertop with bar stools in the salon to increase sitting and dining areas, while below, the galley is equipped with all the conveniences of a modern-day home. Teak cabinetry, premium Amtico vinyl flooring, Corian countertops, and a bone-color Corian recessed sink are only a few of the galley features. A plethora of appliances are at your disposal: an electric range, a two-burner, a surface-mount stove, a large-capacity deep drawer under-counter style refrigerator and freezer, and a microwave/convection oven. The port-side master stateroom is inviting and comfortable with a queen-size walk-around bed with maple-lined stowage below, flanking night tables, carpeting, a maple-lined hanging locker, a 28-inch flat-screen television, and stereo speakers. The head includes a fiberglass shower stall, Amtico flooring, and a vanity with a teak door and Corian countertop. The forward stateroom has a double and a single berth in an over and under crossover arrangement. A second head and shower serve this stateroom. The head also has a vanity with a Corian countertop and Amtico flooring. We are the 119-square-foot cockpit with an arsenal of standard equipment such as flush rod holders, fresh and saltwater wash-down systems, a transom live well, a transom door with lift gate, tackle stowage, a step-box cooler and an in-deck fish, and a stowage well. The 44 C is engineered and designed for the installation of a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, which brings great stability to the vessel and elevates the overall comfort level. Guests can take in the fishing action from the starboard-side observation mezzanine’s aft-facing lounge seating. An engineering showcase, the bright white engine room that’s easily accessed through the observation mezzanine illustrates Viking’s legendary attention to detail. A Delta-T engine room ventilation system, an oil exchange system, and an Onan 13.5 kW E-QD (electronic quiet diesel) Series generator are just some of the standard mechanical and electrical equipment.
