Viking has announced its new flagship luxury center console Valhalla model, the V-46, adding additional accommodations and amenities while maintaining fishability. Like its kin, the V-46 employs the patented Michael Peters Yacht Design double-stepped hull and other signature design traits such as an S-shaped sheer, double chines, and tumblehome transom bustle.

The hardtop package is loaded with components for fishing and navigation, including Lumitec Mirage spreader lights, overhead lights, a molded-in radar pod, a six-rod rocket launcher and an integrated overhead electronics pod in the hardtop above the helm. Custom hardtop options include Gemlux outrigger bases and 22-foot Gemlux outriggers, Miya Epoch US-6 electric teaser reels and Lumitec Razor light bars. The Valhalla 46 can be outfitted with a custom Palm Beach Towers gap tower or fold-down marlin tower with removable sunshade.

The vessel’s deck-level fishing amenities include dual 50-gallon transom livewells. Inlet and discharge fittings in the cockpit corners allow additional on-deck well capacity. An in-deck well is an option, and the forward section of the lounge seating can also serve as a livewell.


The deck also incorporates five fish boxes — all insulated, equipped with macerator pumps and plumbed for overboard drainage. Six standard stainless-steel Gemlux rod holders line the cockpit coaming, and more can be added along the coamings forward.

Convenience options include a bow thruster, anchor chute with stainless-steel anchor and windlass, a teak deck for the raised platform seating area, mezzanine step and forward step, underwater lights, a Costa Marine sunshade and a Reverso automatic outboard flushing system.

Power options include quad Mercury V8 450Rs or Yamaha V8 425s. Both packages utilize fly-by-wire electric power steering and are available with joystick control and GPS station-keeping systems. With nearly 700 gallons of fuel capacity, the V-46 can easily handle long trips to the canyons or extended cruising and diving in the islands.
