The Viking Yacht Co. launched a new website featuring all of its models from 42 to 82 feet in a neatly organized and easy-to-navigate format.

The site includes information about the fleet, Viking’s subsidiaries, its history, tournament news and regular updates about life on the Bass River.

“With more than 1,300 visitors a day from around the world, including faraway countries and places like Ireland, the Slovak Republic, Romania, Cyprus, the Netherlands, New Zealand and South Africa, we wanted to feature the boats we build with lots of crisp photography and larger videos to encourage those folks to visit often and stay longer,” the company said.

Among the many new features is the “Build-a-Boat” section, which allows users to choose any Viking model and peruse the specification pages to select the engines, equipment, accommodations and optional equipment to tailor the build process to a customer’s needs.
