For angling enthusiasts, Seattle Yachts currently has Norden Dame, a Viking Yachts 44 Convertible, listed for sale at $1.65 million. The 2019 build has a two-stateroom, two-head layout with accommodations to sleep up to five.
Vikings are built to fish, and with Norden Dame it starts in the dance-floor-size,119-square-foot cockpit. This 44-foot fishing machine is rigged with angling amenities such as Rupp outriggers, an in-deck freezer, an Eskimo ice maker and a transom box, plenty of space to stow your yellowfin and bigeyes. The cockpit’s mezzanine seating gives the crew a nice perch to keep an eye on the trolling spread. This sportfisherman’s primary mission is fishing, but add a few loose chairs and a table to the cockpit and there’s alfresco dining for family and friends.
Inside, the salon creates a relaxing scenario after a day on the salt with an L-shaped sofa and ottoman to starboard with a bar and bench seats forward. Another L-shaped sofa is to port with a fixed table and flat-screen TV.
Forward and to starboard is a galley-down arrangement. which has a sink, stowage, a refrigerator, a freezer, a microwave and an electric cooktop for easy meal prep for a hungry tournament crew.
Belowdecks, the master stateroom is to port with a queen berth and an en suite head. The guest stateroom has over-under bunks and access to the head aft.
Power for this Viking 44 Convertible is twin 1,000 hp Volvo Penta D13 diesels, which give Norden Dame a 38-knot top hop and a cruise speed of 33 knots. The engines currently have just 300 hours on them.
The yacht has Garmin electronics, including two 7612 Displays, a 25 kw radar, sounder, an AIS transceiver and autopilot. There’s also an Airmar PM411C LWM transducer, a Furuno RD 33, two Icom 506 VHFs, a Fusion stereo system with four JL speakers, two subwoofers and two amplifiers, a SeaKeeper SK6 gyrostabilizer and a FLIR M232 thermal camera.

“Last February in Miami Viking debuted its new 44 Convertible, and the pocket-sized sportfish wowed the crowds. The boat is highly versatile, and can be kitted out to be tournament ready, or simply act as a speedy and stylish two-stateroom cruiser.
The 44C comes on the tail of the 44 Open, and shares many of the same attributes, particularly when it comes to a smooth ride and quick acceleration out of the hole. However, since the yacht is a convertible, it expands upon the Open’s creature comforts, and has a true salon and a luxurious interior that make her even better for spending time on board, particularly if you want to do overnights or cruise where weather is regularly inclement.” – Yachting, 2018
Where is Norden Dame located? The yacht is currently lying in Palm Beach, Florida.
