Viking

Viking is one of the most recognised nameplates in American yacht building and for good reason. For 50 years, the company has built loyal following of buyers of its cruising and sports fishing yachts through its dedication to the high standards and quality construction based on New Jersey boat-building traditions.

History of Viking Yachts

Based in New Gretna, N.J., the company celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014. It began production on April 1, 1964, after brothers Bob and Bill Healey bought a small, struggling New Jersey boat company, Peterson-Viking Builders. At that time the names Bertram and Hatteras dominated the United States’ boatbuilding industry. Nonetheless, Viking Yachts grew into a leading international supplier of semi-custom fiberglass yachts with more than 4,000 hull deliveries to its credit to customers all over the world.

Today, roughly 90 percent of all Viking components are made in-house. The Viking Marine Group includes Palm Beach Towers, which makes aluminum tuna towers, fiberglass hardtops, electronic boxes and other components; Atlantic Marine Electronics, which services and installs a variety of navigation and electronics, and the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida.

Notable Viking Yachts

Viking’s model lineup includes open and closed bridge convertibles, sport yachts, and motor yachts up to 28 metres in length. Among the many honours the company has received is CIGNA Recreational Marine’s Award for Excellence. Company president Bill Healy also has been named to the U.S. National Marine Manufacturers Association Hall of Fame.

Specialisations

Viking incorporates innovative design and performance features that include powder-coated structural steel engine beds to reduce vibration, a Delta-T hull-side mounted ventilation system to lower engine room moisture, and noise and underwater exhaust systems. In addition to new luxury yacht constructions, Viking maintains a worldwide service network.
