Viking Yacht adds sales rep in Seychelles Islands


The Viking Yacht Co. appointed Hunt, Deltel & Co. Ltd., the owners of Eden Island Marina, as its sales and service representative in the Seychelles Islands.

“Eden Island Marina, under the direction of group general manager Christophe Nouareau, is a superyacht facility located in some of the world’s most gorgeous fishing and cruising waters,” Viking president Patrick Healey said in a statement. “We are excited about this new joint venture and look forward to expanding the Viking brand with the experienced and professional team at Eden Island.”

The Seychelles comprise 115 islands in the western Indian Ocean, spanning 700 nautical miles between its northern and southern regions.

On the east coast of Hawaii’s main island of Mahe and linked to the mainland via a 990-foot bridge, Eden Island Marina was developed in conjunction with the Eden Island luxury residential project.

The marina offers all yachting services, including dockage for boats as large as 380 feet, 24-hour security, yacht charters, yacht shops, restaurants and marine supplies.
