A big, muscular fishing boat with tremendous eye appeal, the Viking 43 Open was the best-selling express fisherman in her class during most of the 1990s. Viking offered this model in an Open Sportfish or Express configuration with the difference being the bolt-on swim platform and radar arch of the Express model. The deck plan was quite innovative when the 43 was introduced back in 1994âEURÃ‚Â”the helm is centered on the raised bridge deck, and the steps leading down to the cockpit are offset to starboard. This permits a full set of in-line tackle centers and a centerline access door to the engineroom. A fish box is built into the cockpit sole, and a transom door and transom livewell were standard. This 43 has the optional second cabin with pullman berth. She also installs two powerful CAT, 660 Hp each that allow to cruise at a fast 28 knots with a top speed in the neighborhood of 33 knots. Over 70 were built during her production years.
