Valhalla Boatworks is proud to announce the V-55 Sport (SP) - an evolution within the V Series that emphasizes comfort, style and accommodations in a high-performance luxury cruising yacht.

Fast and fun with premium accommodations and Viking quality, the V-55 Sport shines as the latest example of our commitment to building a better boat every day.

"The V-55 Sport represents our ability to diversify within a model to meet the needs of more owners," said Viking President and CEO Pat Healey, who broke the news today at the Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks Dealer Meeting in Atlantic City, New Jersey. "It takes the proven performance of our 55 hull and merges it with an exciting, contemporary design that the cruising crowd will love."

Powered by four Mercury 600-hp outboards, the V-55 SP runs on the same Michael Peters Yacht Design Stepped-V Ventilated Tunnel (SVVT) running surface, delivering a fast, stable and efficient ride.

Designed for maximum relaxation and outdoor entertaining, the cockpit features a large dining area with two bench seats and a table. An L-shaped summer kitchen is just forward and to starboard. The yacht features powered fold-down balconies on each side with integrated boarding ladders.

"The balconies consist of the entire aft sections of the hull sides, completely opening up the cockpit," says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. "Each platform is 25 square feet, giving you more deck space and easy water access."

A low-profile bow rail enhances safety and adds style. An asymmetrical side-deck design allows for increased interior volume. A raised starboard side deck (accessed via three steps) frees up space in the cabin while still providing access forward to tend to dock lines. The port side walkway is flush with the deck and leads to the bow, where you'll find a three-person sunpad and a wraparound lounge with table.

Accessed through a port-side bulkhead door, the command deck is designed to bring the outdoors inside with its powered aft bulkhead window and sunroof. There are also port and starboard-powered doors that slide aft. They provide full-beam access from the three-person forward control station while also ushering in refreshing breezes for those relaxing in the aft seating area.

Port-side companionway stairs lead to the feature-packed galley to starboard and comfortable dinette to port (with L-shaped seating that's convertible to a berth). Accommodations include two private staterooms with walkaround queen beds. The forward master is appointed with an ensuite head and separate shower. A day head, also with separate shower, is just forward of the amidship guest stateroom. An abundance of natural light enters through cabin and hull-side windows.

The V-55 Sport holds 1,100 gallons of fuel for extensive range and is engineered for a Seakeeper for increased comfort. We plan to have hull No. 1 completed for the winter boat show season.
