The Viking Yacht Company has celebrated four and a half decades in business building luxury performance sport fishing and cruising yachts. Started by brothers Bob and Bill Healey in 1964 when they bought Peterson-Viking Builders, a small, struggling New Jersey builder of 37-foot, wooden sport fishing boats, Viking Yachts has grown to become a world leader in semi-custom fiberglass yacht production with over 4,000 Vikings delivered.
Building a better boat every day is the mantra of the Viking Yacht Company.
Viking prides itself on its renowned manufacturing capabilities. From the initial design to the finished product, Viking’s highly-regarded reputation is rooted in the company’s commitment to produce 90 percent of the boat in house. Except for components such as engines, transmissions, pumps, hoses, air conditioning units, electronics and entertainment systems, virtually everything else is produced in house by our talented workforce.
An interesting aspect that sets Viking apart from its competitors is that the company manufactures about 90 percent of the items that go aboard each yacht. Except for major components such as engines, propellers, air conditioning units and appliances virtually everything is made on site. Viking molds its own fuel, water and waste tanks out of fiberglass, for example, so that the tanks fit into the lowest reaches of the bilge to enhance stability and maximize capacity. In addition, the tanks are then fiber glassed into place adding to the strength of the hull. Engine beds are fabricated from structural steel to ensure drive train alignment and handle the high horsepower output of modern marine diesels that allow mid-30 knot cruising speeds. A sophisticated metal shop welds aluminum into bow and safety railing. Computer controlled machinery in the mill cuts wooden parts with surgical accuracy and the hand-finished varnished teak interiors are a beauty to behold. Yacht interiors are professional designed and furnished on site.
