2018 48 Viking Sport Tower

Viking's 48 Sport Tower is designed specifically for the sportfishing owner-operator and is based on the current 48 Convertible hull. World-renowned Palm Beach Towers designed and installed the tower customized to the 48ST. Unlike the Convertible model with open or enclosed flybridge helm, the 48ST helm is within the air-conditioned raised deckhouse. Helm chair is flanked by companion chairs and to aft are L-shaped seats with triangular pedestal tables, starboard and port sides. 124 sq ft cockpit is nicely outfitted with transom fishbox, livewell, refrigerated storage and more in typical Viking style and includes an observation mezzanine.


CHAIRMAN, 2018 48 VIKING SPORT TOWER is one of the nicest most extensively equipped 48 VIKING SPORT TOWER ever built. Full-Time captain maintained. She is virtually a new boat and is priced considerably at a substantial savings from new Viking.
