It’s hard to find anyone lately with a gripe with Viking Yachts. The boats are fast and pretty, seaworthy and stout. Indeed they’re of such high quality that Viking’s nearly cornered the semi-custom sportfisherman market. But it’s perhaps the people behind the boats—the Healey family—that are even more impressive. You won’t find many people with a bad word to say about them either; for good reason.
