Interview with Pat Healey of Viking Yachts

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow 

The old plant at Viking Yachts
As we approach Viking Yacht’s 50th Anniversary what better time to reflect on how a small boat builder set a goal to build a better boat every day. In pursuit of its mission, Viking not only realized its goal but overcame every obstacle in its path to become the world’s largest manufacturer of luxury convertible sportfishing yachts.

Starting out with a fleet of plank on frame wood boats in 1964, Viking may have been a late arrival in New Jersey’s boat building scene, but with every boat built, the Viking team became stronger and better known throughout the industry.



Building a better boat meant understanding every facet of the process.

Today, Viking stands in no one’s shadow and from its humble beginnings leads the industry in design, manufacturing and performance.


With 15 models now in our product line, the next best thing is already in progress.  Our new 92 Convertiblelaunches late summer 2014.
