A strong selling boat with over 100 delivered, Viking got it right with the 53 Convertible, a balanced blend of handsome styling, luxurious accommodations, and solid performance. She was built on a low-deadrise, modified-V hull with a wide beam and a shallow keel for directional stability. "Halcyon" features the original galley-up floorplan has three staterooms and two heads on the lower level with the master stateroom to starboard. The beautifully appointed interior of the Viking 53 was lavish indeed by the standards of her day, especially for a sportfishing yacht. The cockpit features a full tackle center, transom door, in-deck fish box, and access to a huge engine room. The flybridge is equally large and features well-conceived helm console. Updates in 1997 included restyled (frameless) deckhouse windows and an extended flybridge.
