Valhalla Boatworks

Four years ago this month, Valhalla Boatworks (VBW) pulled the very first V Series center console hull from its mold – a Shimmering Blue V-37 (above). Since then, VBW has gone on to build and deliver nearly 400 boats across five different models ranging from 33 to 55 feet. Wow.

There certainly was a lot of attention given to that first V-37 (left), but it was one of three models that Valhalla Boatworks premiered at the 2019 Dealer Meeting in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

With the trio of game-changing V Series center consoles – the V-33, V-37 and V-41Viking and VBW had entered the center console market with a bang – heard loud and clear throughout the industry.

The Valhalla 46 followed 18 months later (amidst the challenges of the pandemic), solidifying VBW as the top choice for high-performance premium center consoles from 33 to 46 feet.

And now Valhalla has pushed the envelope again, conquering new ground in the Viking tradition with the revolutionary V-55.

“This is a statement boat – and there is nothing like it on the market,” Viking Yachts President and CEO Pat Healey told the media during the premiere of the V-55 at the 2023 Miami International Boat Show. “We’re setting a new standard by bringing together the qualities of a large center console and a luxury sportfishing yacht. In every way, this boat goes above and beyond. We’ve raised the bar by following our mantra of building a better boat every day.”
