The Viking 43 Convertible earned a reputation over the years as a first-rate tournament fisherman and an excellent open water performer. She has more beam and fuel than the Viking 41 Convertible, the boat she replaced in the Viking fleet, and she offered a choice of a dinette or two-stateroom floorplan. Either way, the mid-level galley is wide open to the salon and the head compartment and master stateroom are both very spacious. The interior of the Viking 43 is comprised of rich teak cabinets and trim with quality appliances and rich designer fabrics—upscale accommodations indeed for a serious fishing boat. Topside, the flybridge is among the largest in her class and features an efficient wraparound helm console. The cockpit includes a transom door, molded tackle center, and an in-deck fish box. Among many engine options, early models with 485hp 6-71s cruise at 22–23 knots (26 knots top).
