In addition to 15 Vikings on display between 42 and 82 feet that were made available for sea trials, visitors also enjoyed numerous aisles filled with vendors displaying engines, electronics, custom yacht furnishings, marine accessories, insurance and financial services, the company said.

Viking also used the event to announce its newest model — the 55 Convertible — which is coming this summer.
