Why Viking Yachts?
Viking Yachts was founded by brothers Bob and Bill Healey in 1964 when they bought Peterson-Viking Builders, a small, struggling New Jersey builder of 37′, wooden sportfishing Yachts. Those humble beginnings of course led to Viking Yachts, now a world-leader in semi-custom fiberglass yacht production with over 4,000 Viking sportfish and motoryachts delivered. With Bob Healey still at the company helm as Chief Executive Officer and deal maker, and Bill as company President, chief Yachtbuilder and head of Viking Yacht’s in-house design and engineering teams, this family-owned and managed business is thriving. Viking Yacht Company builds over 100 high-end sportfishing yachts, from 45′ to 82′ each year. Viking Yachts’s order sheet is full for the next 12 months, depending on the model, with sales limited only by production capacity. With 1,400 employees building yachts in Viking’s state-of-the-art, 600,000 square-feet, waterfront-manufacturing facility, business has never been better, and expansion plans are under way to increase production of its largest models.
At a time when the brothers could take a well-earned rest, Bob and Bill are busier than ever. When not promoting the Recreational Fishing Alliance or industry issues in Washington D.C., Bob can often be found at the Viking shipyard. Bill is at the plant daily overseeing new expansion plans and to ensure Viking is “building a better Yacht every day.” And of course, Bill still makes it a point to say goodnight to his 1,400 employees each evening, a habit he started way back on April 1, 1964.

45’ Viking Yachts Convertible Review
The 45 is everything she’d appeared to be at first glance. Stepping into the huge cockpit, I could see the 45 is certainly armed for bluewater battle, with a standard tackle cabinet, freezer, and recessed fishbox that can hold a dozen dressed tuna and dorado. If the catch is too big to swing over the high gunwale, you can drag your quarry through the standard transom door with optional gate. Also noteworthy is that all cockpit hatches are gasketed and built using Resin Transfer Molding (RTM), a process that provides a clean and smooth surface on both sides.
The master stateroom includes an island berth, an opening hatch at the head of the berth bringing in air and light, and a cedar-lined hanging locker. The head benefits from an overhead hatch and an air-conditioning vent.
The Viking 45 is built a flybridge and an express model with all the angling amenities a tournament fisherman could want, and all the accommodations a young cruising family could desire. And her cockpit offers not only a formidable fishing platform, but for the crowd that is more interested in cocktails, it can double nicely as a dance floor.
