A History of Viking Yachts

Viking Life

Bob and Bill Healey of Viking Yachts won the AIM Marine Group Editors’ Choice Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014.

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.
