Fast And Far: Valhalla Boatworks V-41

Published: Friday, May 8, 2020

The appeal of the flagship, Viking Yacht Company built, Valhalla V-41 is strong and simple: She’s the best big center console on the market, answering the call with speed, range, overall performance, and high-level fishability. This triple- or quad-powered offshore runner is poised to take the reins as the leading high-performance 40-plus-foot center console on the market.

“The V-41 takes you to the next level of center console design, fishability, performance, and convenience,” says Design Manager David Wilson. “You will be impressed.”

The V-41 is offered with multiple options for power, including the new Mercury Racing Verado 450R engines. Further, owners may select a quad setup of Mercury 400s or a triple installation of the Yamaha 425s. Triple Mercury 400s or a quad configuration of the Mercury V8 300s are also available on this model. No matter the brand or engine size, each application can be configured for joystick helm control with GPS station-keeping technology. A bow thruster can also be added for the ultimate in maneuverability.

Speed and range are nothing to blink an eye at with this boat. The V-41 tops out at 74 mph with the quad Mercury 400 package, and a range of 450 miles at 52 mph is nothing short of outstanding.

The V-41 will excel on the tournament circuit, with a clean deck layout that maximizes the boat’s 360-degree access and an arsenal of standard and optional fishing features to put you in the winner’s circle. The transom holds a 90-gallon live well, the decks are filled with insulated fish boxes, and rod holders can be installed virtually anywhere.

The V-41 is designed and built to fish, no doubt, but the flagship also excels as a sleek sport cruiser thanks to her diverse deck layout choices that include an aft mezzanine seating module complete with armrests and an insulated cooler under the seat, as well as U-shaped forward seating with backrests and a hi-low table. Fore and aft deck sail shades, an anchor windlass, a port-side dive door, and additional cup holders round out the day-cruising conveniences.

“The 41 Valhalla is a world-class, no-nonsense center console that will outrun the competition in all conditions,” says JBYS sales and brokerage professional Jim Stefano. “The Viking DNA personified throughout the Valhalla range boasts top-end quality with style and running grace like no other. Whether you’re fishing tournaments with the big boys or enjoying her as a family fun boat, the V-41 is my preferred weapon of choice!”
