California-based Viking Yachts dealer Stan Miller Yachts, which has dealerships in Long Beach, Newport Beach and San Diego, opened a fourth location in Seattle.

The builder-dealer partnership growth is part of ongoing expansion plans to promote the Viking product line from 42 to 92 feet from Alaska to Mexico.

Established in 1955, Stan Miller Yachts is operated by brothers Brad and John Buettner. It became a Viking dealer in April 2012.

The new Stan Miller Yachts office is at 2288 West Commodore Way, Suite 200. Staffing the new location is office manager Leslie Simmons (leslie@stanmiller.com); and yacht brokers Harry Walp (harry@stanmiller.com) and David Bagley (david@stanmiller.com).

“We are thrilled to have the Buettners and their team as members of the Viking family,” Viking Yachts president Patrick Healey said in a statement. “Their knowledge of boatbuilding, customer service, cruising, fishing and the West Coast yachting culture has been a tremendous benefit to the growth of both of our companies. The new Seattle location is a continuation of this strategic alliance.”
