The summer heat is still rolling around much of the United States but lots of people have a found a creative way to cool off and make a difference.  By now you have probably heard about the viral sensation ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that has raised over $90 million. 

When Frank Rodriguez and his crew on the Viking 70 Enclosed Bridge Fa La Me challenged us, we had to take them up on it. Everyone knows the Viking 70 and Viking 62 demo crews are known to have a friendly rivalry but looks like the boys are heating it up. Now we challenge you. Are you up for it?

Building A Better Plant


Building a better plant at Viking yachts

Viking‘s ongoing improvements to enclose and enjoin our manufacturing buildings is a step closer to reality with the raising of six new 10 ton bridge cranes, each one equipped with a pair of remotely controlled five ton hoists.


Because the hoists also can operate independently, it will now be possible to move large molds and modular components both horizontally and longitudinally throughout the building, picking up and dropping off wherever needed to facilitate our build process. This will significantly enhance our overall efficiencies throughout the plant, remaining ever true to Viking co-founder Bill Healey’s mission to build a better boat every day.

Viking 52 Profile

Experience is the best teacher and nowhere is this more evident than in the development of a boat’s helm. Our new Viking 52 Sport Tower model presents a good example of this critical attention to detail.  She’s set to premiere next month at our 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration and VIP sea trial day, September 9-10, 2014 at the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Viking 52 Command Deck

Providing good visibility for the operator is paramount, and this includes the ability to monitor the navigation and fishing electronics. As the rendering shows in this case, our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronicsequipped the helm with three 15-inch screens affording the operator with an unobstructed view of the sounder, plotter and radar.  Engine instrumentation is visible on centerline. The raised pod, which houses the electronic equipment is sealed for all weather performance. Another of our subsidiaries, Palm Beach Towers, designed and built the custom tuna tower with a full set of controls and additional electronics for seamless performance when operating the boat from the upper location.


For information on attending our 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration and arranging a sea trial aboard the newViking 52 Sport Tower, please contact your Viking dealer.
