Viking Yachts are the best motor yachts on the market.
Viking Yachts is one of the few shipyards that cares as much about new ideas as it does. Viking Yachts is one of the best in the industry when it comes to performance, engineering, and craftsmanship for motor yachts. Their motto is “build a better boat every day.”
Viking Yachts has been making boats for more than 50 years and is dedicated to doing the best job possible. Viking Yachts was started by brothers Bob and Bill Healey in 1964 after they bought Peterson-Viking Builders, a small New Jersey company that made 37-foot wooden sport fishing yachts. Since then, the company has become a leader in the production of semi-custom fiberglass yachts. When the yard released its first full-fiberglass model, the Viking 33 Convertible, in 1971, and the larger Viking 40 shortly after, interest in the yard and its motor yachts went through the roof. Viking Yachts was the best fishing and pleasure boat company at the time. In ten years, they sold more than 400 yachts.
With more than 4,000 boats delivered, Viking Yachts is the choice of many experienced sailors and tournament fishing champions. Part of the builder’s reputation comes from the fact that it makes 90 percent of its boats in-house. Aside from mechanical parts like engines, pumps, and entertainment systems, the talented team at the yard builds the rest of the yacht by hand, keeping the highest standards and quality. The company is owned and run by a family, and over the years it has kept improving its manufacturing and production lines. It now offers top-of-the-line convertibles, cruisers, and motor yachts. Viking Yachts can build more than 100 yachts a year at its facilities. It has five production lines with models that range in length from 42 feet to 90 feet. Viking is proud that each of their yachts reflects their commitment to and drive for innovative engineering and refined luxury. It is clear that their boats benefit from this built-in quality control advantage. During the building process, a team of experts checks each yacht carefully, paying attention to even the smallest details. This makes sure that the final product is more reliable, safer, and of higher quality.
