On the subject of taking up space, this recent image of the Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible reveals its true size in comparison to the Viking 62 Convertible on its port side. At every level, the 92 EB is an incredible work in progress with our shipwrights tending to seemingly endless tasks on the bridge, in the salon, and on the mezzanine. Unseen shipwrights are dealing with mechanical installations in the lazarette and engineroom.
But the view also details how far the work has progressed. It was only last summer when we were crafting the plugs to create the many molds needed to build this boat. From this vantage point the dual level mezzanine is apparent, as are the dual staircases to the upper level. The installation of the enclosed bridge glass windows lends an accurate height measurement. The physical height of the shipwrights provides a true life scale. The excitement surrounding this epic new model, the largest in our 50 year history, resonates throughout the plant. With its mid-August delivery date, the summer of 2014 at the Viking Yacht Company will be one to remember.
