Valhalla and other builders are bringing back wood paneling in a big way, and it really shows in this cabin. The horizontal-grain walnut warms the space and rivals that of any luxury yacht (the nearly 7 ft of headroom doesn’t hurt, either). The cabin totals 1 queen bed, 2 berths, an L-shaped lounge, a drop-down table for conversion into a book, 2 32-inch HD TVs, ensuite vanity and sink, private shower, and so much more.
Keeping with (new) tradition, Viking created a state-of-the-art machinery room for the V-55 just as they did for the V-46 released last year. The machinery room is accessed through an aft bulkhead door in the bunk area and features the batteries, battery chargers, fire and ventilation systems, water heater, electrical distribution panel, generator with 50-gallon diesel tank, access to the electronics, fuel management systems, and so much more.
You didn’t think we forgot our favorite part, did you?
A beautiful gloss black acrylic, this dash boasts 3 LARGE multi-function displays, stainless steel bocatech push button switches, backlit text, and the backlit Valhalla logo. The Edson steering wheel is mounted on either a faux teak or solid teak helm pod, and that wood really makes the gloss acrylic POP.
The V-55 is offered in an array of color choices in options and can even be maximized in customizable options for custom outboard paint, gelcoat, the deckliner, the console, seating modules, and deck boxes.
Whew… I think that about covers it (for now).
“In every way, this boat goes above and beyond,”
says Pat. “We’re extremely excited and can’t wait to show you our new Valhalla.”
The construction of Hull #1 sets sail this summer, with the unveiling coming to the world stage of the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October.
We absolutely can not WAIT to see the progress begin on the construction, so be sure to check back for updates once it kicks off!
