The amount of buzz generated by the Viking 52 Open has all the excitement of a house on fire. And while new Viking yachts always attract attention, this model has cult status written all over it. In fact, it has already spawned a pair of sisterships that reign in their own sea of status known as the 52 Sport Yacht.

Fishability

If you polled successful tournament anglers, you would learn without exception that they live by two simple rules. First, they all have discovered through their good and not so good experiences that they never know when that big, important bite is going to come. It could be a point winning blue marlin that appears 60 seconds after the first line go in, or the 15th sail of the day late in the afternoon that puts you out in front and at the top of the leader board. And secondly, they never leave anything to chance before or during the time when the lines are in the water. From fresh line to perfect knots to sharp hooks, preparation cannot be overlooked. These truths are clearly evident when you take in the cockpit of the 52 Open because you quickly notice that nothing has been left to chance.

The 148 square-foot cockpit is a dream come true for serious anglers. There is ample room to move about no matter how hot the action and the rounded coamings help keep stand-up anglers in top fighting form so they can concentrate on the fish at the end of the line and not their aching thighs. Tackle, bait and rigging materials are conveniently stowed in lockers and the freezer but never more than a quick reach away. The mezzanine provides a comfortable and relaxing lounge area for observers but keeps them clear of the lower cockpit so the crew can work their magic unencumbered.
