The 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show - the largest in-water exhibition of boats in the world - starts tomorrow.

And as usual, Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks will proudly present our world-class fleet of sportfishing yachts and high-performance luxury center consoles. The largest yacht will be a Snow White 80 Convertible featuring a sky bridge. The 80 has been a phenomenal success, with nearly 50 boats delivered.

The 72 Convertible on display will also be a Snow White beauty. Like the 80, we offer the 72 with an open bridge, enclosed bridge and sky bridge. Our show boat features an open bridge with a teak cockpit and mezzanine, a Release Marine fighting chair and faux-teak transom and toe rail. She's also outfitted with a custom Palm Beach Towers (PBT) tuna tower, along with an electronics package from Atlantic Marine Electronics (AME). These two Viking subsidiaries play a big role in our ability to deliver turn-key industry-leading boats.

You're looking at our newest demonstrator boat, above. This stunning Aristo Blue Viking 64 will certainly be dropping jaws and drawing big crowds. And what can we say about the 64? Since its introduction at last year's Fort Lauderdale Show, this model has already carved out its place in Viking lore as one of the best-performing convertibles of all time, with incredible speed, maneuverability, an extremely dry ride and next-level fishability.

The Viking 46 Billfish will be represented by the Gemlux demonstrator boat. Gemlux - already a key vendor for Valhalla Boatworks with its high-quality fishing and boating hardware - is diving into the sportfish boat market. As you can see, she features a faux-teak transom and is outfitted with carbon fiber outriggers and an array of fishing accessories - all from Gemlux, of course.

The 46 Billfish represents another innovative model from Viking, with its straightforward fishboat design that stresses ease of operation and maintenance. This boat can get up and go, too, with a top speed of 38-plus knots. The 46 Billfish is the ultimate modern dayboat, with great versatility and comfortable air-conditioned accommodations on the command deck and below.

Valhalla Boatworks has achieved so much in such a short time, delivering more than 250 boats across four models (the V-33, V-37, V-41 and V-46) since September 2019. All these models will be on hand at FLIBS, including the V-41 Papa's Pilar, a highly personalized fish-focused Valhalla featured in this video.

For more information about any boat in our fleet, please reach out to your authorized Viking or Valhalla dealer. The Fort Lauderdale Show runs from Wednesday, October 26, through Sunday, October 30. See you in sunny Florida!
