Viking Yachts recently debuted the 44 Open’s closely related sistership, the Viking 44 Convertible. That boat is a bit more fish-centric and better suited to longer voyages because of her enclosed salon. The 119 square feet of cockpit space should keep fishermen happy, while the interior serves as a welcome escape from hot or otherwise inclement weather. (I sought respite there during one particularly steamy day at the Miami Yacht Show, and the space was great.) Both models have the same hull and smooth ride, so owners comparing and contrasting can look at layouts and features to decide what’s ideal for them.
