After the business meetings, the dealers hopped aboard the new Viking for sea trials, where they experienced the yacht's 40-plus-knot speed.

Dealers also sea-trialed a new Viking 70 Convertible, a Viking 42 Open with Cummins MerCruiser diesels matched to Zeus pod drives and a Viking 50 Convertible with Caterpillar power and ZF's 4000 Series pod-drive propulsion system, the company said.
