Breaking News from Viking Yachts

 

Triple Twice!                                                                  Like us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter  

Frank Rodriguez, and his outstanding crew on his Viking 70 Enclosed Bridge Fa La Me, made history this month when he won the Bermuda Triple Crown for the second time! Fa La Me is the first boat to ever win this prestigious accomplishment twice. Comprised of a series of three major Bermuda-based billfish tournaments, the points earned at each event follow the boat, crew and anglers.  Fishing for blue marlin, as that is where the big points are, was a ponderous task for the team.

 

The Bermuda Big Game Classic, the first in the series, was a slow start with a lone white marlin release. Things picked up during the second event, the Bermuda Billfish Blast with four white marlin.  After 14 days, the frustrated crew was still looking for the elusive blue marlin bite.  Then it happened!

 

On the first day of the Sea Horse Anglers Club Billfish Tournament, Frank hooked up with a blue and 18 minutes later the team was back in the saddle. Four blue marlin and a wahoo followed to win not just the Sea Horse event but take the title of the Bermuda Triple Crown Championship. Frank also took Top Angler in the Sea Horse Leg. Congratulations Frank, captain Rob Moore, mates Taylor and Tyler Beckford and anglers Dave Berard and Jeffrey De Silva. We’re looking forward to a triple Triple next year!

 

Congratulations are also in order to Lainey Jones fishing on her Viking 66 Mama Who. Lainey was Second Place Lady Angler in the Billfish Blast leg of the series.

 

Bragging Rights 

 

Viking Ocean

A fleet of 40 boats, half Viking half Ocean yachts, converged on the Canyon Club Marina for the annual Viking Ocean Showdown.  Amidst dinner, dancing and a lively pool party complete with grilled steaks and tropical drinks the anglers did find some time to fish on Thursday and Saturday.

 

When lines were called at the end of the final day, Viking Yachts had the edge over Ocean Yachts winning the coveted Grand Champion trophy. Captain Ryan Higgins claimed Most Points Tuna on the Viking 70 while Team Viking member Beth Cesarini nabbed the Heaviest Tuna with a 68 pounder while fishing on Gypsea.  Kaela Colyar, aboard the Viking 60 Gigabyte II,  was the Top Junior Angler. The release only billfish tournament pits these two New Jersey boat manufacturers against each other in a friendly rivalry for bragging rights. Tournament Director Bob Glover said, “It’s a fun get together between these two boat builders. Everybody is friends, so it’s a one of a kind, unique situation.”

 

Ciao Viking!

Viking 92 Update

Palm Beach Towers Rises to the Occasion                 Like us on FacebookFollow us on Twitter

 

Viking 92

While the Viking 92 Enclosed Bridge Convertible is the largest Viking yacht built so far in our 50 year history and among the many highlights of our continuing 50th anniversary festivities, still another milestone was reached on Friday, when our subsidiary, Palm Beach Towers, set the yacht’s custom tuna tower in place.

 

 

Once the crane had the tower airborne, it was maneuvered over the enclosed bridge roof, a painstaking process requiring multiple steps and numerous hands, while carefully protecting the yacht and the tower.

 

 

Getting closer inch by inch, side by side, the moment of truth arrives with another perfect fit.

 

 

Secured with a handful of strategic fasteners and several upright stands, the tuna tower, which extends nearly 40 feet from the waterline to the top of the fiberglass sun shade roof, is sufficiently stable so the yacht can be removed from the water, and the rest of the tower work completed on land.
