Viking Yacht celebrates 48th anniversary

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.

New Jersey-based Viking buildings convertible sportfishing yachts from 42 to 82 feet.
