A premier builder of sportfishers, Viking Yachts launched its first motor yacht in 15 years with the 75MY in 2015. It upped the ante with the Viking 93. It’s the largest Viking to date at 28 metres, just outpacing the Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible sportfishing boat. Viking says it will continue to grow its motor yacht fleet in the next few years.
