Viking 52 Profile

Experience is the best teacher and nowhere is this more evident than in the development of a boat’s helm. Our new Viking 52 Sport Tower model presents a good example of this critical attention to detail.  She’s set to premiere next month at our 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration and VIP sea trial day, September 9-10, 2014 at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Providing good visibility for the operator is paramount, and this includes the ability to monitor the navigation and fishing electronics. As the rendering shows in this case, our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronicsequipped the helm with three 15-inch screens affording the operator with an unobstructed view of the sounder, plotter and radar.  Engine instrumentation is visible on centerline. The raised pod, which houses the electronic equipment is sealed for all weather performance. Another of our subsidiaries, Palm Beach Towers, designed and built the custom tuna tower with a full set of controls and additional electronics for seamless performance when operating the boat from the upper location.
