Viking Yachts is a world leader in the production of semi-custom fiberglass yacht production with over 4,000 Vikings delivered. Viking is well regarded for the quality and design of their convertible sportfishing yachts, which are fished around the world.
Viking Yacht Company was formed by brothers Bill and Bob Healey over 50 years ago and remains family owned and operated. In 1964, the Healey brothers purchased Peterson-Viking Builders, a New Jersey manufacturer of wooden sportfishing and cruising boats, and Viking was born.
The company prides itself on quality control by manufacturing about 90 percent of the items aboard each yacht. Virtually everything is made in-house, except for major components such as engines, propellers, air conditioning units and appliances. Boasting four production lines, Viking can build over 100 yachts a year from 42 to 92 feet.
In February 2002, Viking opened a new service facility near Palm Beach, to accommodate Viking owners who bring their boats south for the winter. The facility features land storage and slips for in-water work.
The Viking name can be found on the MLS in a variety of styles including Viking Sportfish, Viking Convertible, Viking Convertible Sportfisherman, Viking Enclosed Bridge, Viking Open Bridge, Viking Sport Yacht, Viking Express, Viking Sport Fisherman, Viking Sedan, and Viking Motor Yacht.
