Viking 46BF Fishing Boat

The Billfish series represents Viking’s expansion to include more owner-operator models that are smaller, easier to handle, and easier to afford than their larger yachts. The 46BF is the largest in this line-up, and features a unique semi-enclosed-saloon design that keeps the cockpit connected with the upper cabin area. 

Critical Fishing Features 

  • Six flush mount gunwale rod holders 
  • Six bridge wing flush mount rod holders 
  • Five bridge deck rocket launchers 
  • Twin in-deck fish boxes w/pump-outs 
  • Transom live well 
  • Cockpit bait freezer 
  • Laminated in-deck fighting chair or battle station backing plate 
  • Refrigerated cockpit drink box 
  • Fresh and raw water wash-downs 
  • Saloon deck under-seat rod stowage 

Angling Advantages 

  • 140 square feet of cockpit space provides more angling room than expected for the LOA. 
  • The semi-enclosed saloon deck, completely separated from the lower cabin, provides a place that anglers can go for an air-conditioned respite from the action without worrying about besmirching the boat’s interior. Since the entire area is hose-able, tracking in blood or fish gore isn’t a problem. 
  • Slow-speed and reverse maneuverability is excellent, and backing on hot billfish at speeds up to eight or nine knots will be a piece of cake.
