Construction Zone

Viking Yacht Company
In the Spotlight
 

As reliable as the tides, the views are always changing on the various Viking production lines. A recent stroll by Line One where Viking 82018 is under construction reveals bustling activity, as Viking’s Bill Gibbons (left) and Yasser Hassan (right) hoist a Seakeeper Gyro into the yacht. Within minutes, the 2,900 pound sphere is positioned into the lazarette. The Seakeeper Gyro, a popular addition aboard many Vikings can effectively eliminate 60 to 90 percent of the boat’s rolling motion in a seaway.

Elsewhere, another hoist lifts the forward cabinet assembly (left), which is then positioned into the galley (right).

Over on Line Two, a pair of 1,925 hp Caterpillar C32A diesels finds their home aboard another new Viking 66, 66303.
