The Viking Sport Cruisers 56 Flybridge appealed to the emerging class of mid-1990s yacht buyers seeking the styling and performance of a purebred European yacht. Built by Marine Projects, Ltd. in England on a deep-V hull with moderate beam, the SC56 Flybridge employs prop pockets to reduce shaft angles and draft.

Below decks, two separate salon seating areas, a sunken galley (with an attached laundry room), an elevated lower helm, and inside flybridge access blend together in a graceful and notably practical layout. Three staterooms are forward of the engine room, and twin-berth crew quarters are aft.

The cockpit features a beautiful teak deck with built-in lounge seating. A hatch in the cockpit sole provides access to a large storage lazarette as well as the engine room.

Topside, there’s seating for eight on the spacious flybridge with its aft sun pad, wet bar and low-profile arch. Unlike her more modern counterparts, a cockpit ladder rather than a molded staircase reaches the flybridge. A fast ride for a yacht this size, twin Volvo 610hp diesels cruise the Viking SC56 at 25 knots (28–30 knots top).
