** FINANCING AVAILABLE **Ask about our In-House financingThis 42 Open is ready for anything whether it is offshore blue water fishing, bottom fishing, cruising with the family or diving. All mechanical services have recently been performed. Powered with twin Cummins QSC 600 8.1diesel engines and ZEUS drives w/1100 hrs. Completed the 1,000 hr service. Twin Garmin 7212's.The 42 Open packs a big punch when it comes to fishing and cruising, and you might just find she’s all the boat you need.With an LOA of 42 feet, 7 inches, the vessel is the perfect size for cruising with friends, diving, fishing, and other activities.Like most Vikings, the 42 Open is equipped both for cruising and for fishing. On the bridge deck, there are three forward-facing Release Marine chairs, including the helm chair. For anybody who’s ever cruised in sizable seas, you know having a stable, comfortable, forward-facing seat can make all the difference. What’s more, the seats rotate completely so passengers can keep an eye on the fishing action, a nice touch.That helm sports a fiberglass teak-veneer helm pod that I originally thought was the more expensive—and more fragile—fully teak helm pod Viking has on some of its other boats. It’s simply a beautiful accouterment for a boat. Just forward of the pod, twin Garmin GPSMap 7212screens as well as twin SmartCraft VesselViews help keep the captain in touch with his surroundings and the fish.Down below is a forepeak master with private access to a head and loads of stowage in nearly every cranny. Aft VIP cabin.As for the fishing amenities onboard, the namesake tuna tower is manufactured by Viking subsidiary Palm Beach Towers that’s an important feature.In addition, the wide, open cockpit has more than enough space for anglers to maneuver around one another when the bite is on, and there are twin in-deck fish boxes to port and starboard, as well as another fish box in the transom that is fitted out to double as a live well. Freezers in the mezzanine work well for bait or for any extra provisions if you’re going for an extended cruise.Twin recessed tackle boxes, also in the mezzanine, mean you’ll never be fumbling for gear at precisely the wrong moment.The twin 600-horsepower Cummins QSC8.3 diesels trained to Zeus pods had her motoring comfortably at a brisk cruise around 29 knots.The Viking Open runs at that speed without so much as a creak, and exhibitsagreeably modest trim angles throughout her rpm register thanks to her Cummins autotab function. The 42 Open isa pleasure to drive at speed.At slow speeds, the Mercury SmartCraft joystick hasthe 42 spinning like an Olympic figure skater, and moving laterally with real acceleration and surgeon-like precision; two inarguably impressive and useful attributes when you’re trying to land a trophy fish.The 42 might be the smallest boat Viking is currently offering, but the boys in New Gretna packed her to the gills with everything you’d need to enjoy her in full. Whether you’re cruising her or fishing her, with that seakindly ride, slow-speed agility, and onboard amenities to rival even the largest of her sisters, the Viking 42 Open is a boat you should have your eye on.Tower Power:No fishing boat worth its salt is complete these days without a tuna tower. Viking knows that, and knows it well. So well, in fact, that it has its own subsidiary, Palm Beach Towers, that builds towers for its boats as the boats themselves are being built. That saves their owners time on the delivery, as the boat and tower get to them in one piece, and ready to go.Seats in the Mezzanine:Mezzanine seating, like the kind seen on the Viking 42 Open, has become de rigueur in the world of sport fishing, and if you’ve ever been fishing on a boat with a mezzanine, you know why: There’s simply no better seat in the house to watch the action. Somewhat ingeniously, the design also allows for tons of extra stowage. In the 42’s case, that means extra freezers and recessed tackle boxes are always within easy reach of men at work.Fishing Machine:The heart of any boat is her engine room. And you can’t get out to the fish, and more importantly, home again, if your Engine Room is in bad shape. The 42’s twin 600-horsepower Cummins diesels are housed in an almost shockingly large space accessible via a companionway in the mezzanine. Dual Racor's show a reassuring bent towards redundancy while white Awlgrip throughout will help the captain immediately spot oil spills.LOA: 42'7"Beam: 15'10"Draft: 3'5"Fuel: 525 galsWater: 120 galsDisplacement: 40,000 lbsEngines - 600 hp Cummins QSM's w/1100 hrsZEUS POD drivesRecent 1,000 hr service
