“Bob and Bill Healey created Viking Yacht Company in 1964 when they purchased Peterson-Viking Builders in New Jersey. In 1996, the Healey brothers formed Viking Sport Cruisers distributing British-built, high end cruising motor yachts from 42 to 95 feet. From roots in wooden sport fishing boats, Viking is now a world leader in semi-custom fiberglass yacht production, boasting over 4,000 delivered. They are able to deliver over 100 yachts from 42 to 82 feet each year manufacturing about 90 percent of the equipment in-house that go into their yachts (excluding engines, props, appliances, and air conditioning unit). “Building a better boat everyday” means Viking is a leader in the industry in performance, innovation, engineering, and luxury.
Luxury motor yacht enthusiasts will appreciate innovation and terms like powder-coated structural steel engine beds, Delta-T hull-side mounted ventilation system, and underwater exhaust systems, while design buffs will note hand-finished varnished teak interiors, curved doorways, and fine joinery.
The available models from Viking Yachts focus on convertibles, enclosed bridge models, and open yachts. The Viking Convertible models range from the Viking Convertible 42 to the Viking Convertible 82 with electric sliding door. The Viking Enclosed Bridge models range from the Viking Enclosed Bridge 60 to the Viking Enclosed Bridge 82. The sleek, fast, and powerful Viking Open Yachts include the Viking Open Yacht 42, the Viking Open Yacht 46, and the Viking Open Yacht 52. The Viking Sport Yacht has one model—the Viking Sport Yacht 52.”
