Viking Yacht celebrates 48th anniversaryPosted on
April 1 marked the 48th anniversary of the Viking Yacht Co., the day when brothers Bill and Bob Healey opened the doors to their new boatbuilding venture.
What started in a single, self-contained building in 1964 has evolved into an 810,000-square-foot manufacturing facility encompassing five freestanding structures equipped with the latest technologies and machinery.
With its vertical integration, Viking designs and manufactures in-house virtually every part found aboard the boats and produces a present day lineup of 19 distinctive models, with new introductions every year, the company said.
