The 52 Viking Convertible epitomizes the legendary status of Viking as one of the most successful hull designs produced, and "Terrabbean" is the ultimate example of this craftmanship, she’s the one to buy! Terrabbean has enjoyed meticulous care from her owners, and has continued to be maintained to the highest standard. Previously the personal sportfish of Fort Lauderdale’s most respected MAN Authorized dealer, the services are naturally up-to-date on the 1300 HP MAN engines, and every MAN upgrade has been performed.  She was repainted in the spring of 2015 by Luu Marine in Fort Lauderdale, and her electronics, interior woods, exterior cushions, enclosures and chairs have all been either upgraded, replaced or refinished. Terrebbean has continued to receive constant care and many upgrades. A must see for any Viking enthusiast.  



Walk Through

The 52 Viking convertible was the successor to the earlier 55 Viking convertible, with the most notable engineering improvements to the hull shape, bringing a softer ride with better sea keeping ability and enhanced interior with its wider 17’5” beam and sizeable 3 stateroom 2 head layout.


Terrabbean underwent a major refit including a complete paint job, new Simrad 16" monitors with remote command, chirp sounder, and 96 mile radar with 7' array. The interior wood was refinished, flybridge and tackle center cushions were replaced, and all teak chairs and fighting chairs have been refinished. A true best-in-show of any of the 52 Vikings for sale today.

  • Pipewelder's Tower
  • Rupp Marine outriggers
