The Viking View – Big Plans
A pair of Viking 68 EBs (Enclosed Bridge) left Viking within a half hour of each other this past week. Hulls number 26 and 27 are off to their new homeports with plenty of fishing scheduled for both. No. 26, Mine Time (shown above), will settle into her slip at The Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida, where the vessel will be a home away from home for the Thomas family. They plan on exploring the Keys, Bahamas and Caribbean with their children and grandchildren this winter. Summer will be spent on the Gulf visiting friends in Texas as well as fishing the rigs. The repeat Viking customers aren’t limiting their travels, so look for this pretty girl anywhere from Maine to Casa de Campo to Alabama.

For this year only, the annual Viking Yacht Company and Valhalla Boatworks event will be expanded to three days, showcasing the Viking and Valhalla fleets and featuring the world premiere of the Valhalla 46 as well as the new award-winning Viking 54.
“Without the Miami show this year, we decided to give people more opportunity to come to our VIP and see a tremendous lineup of yachts in a friendly, safe setting,” says Viking Yachts President and CEO Pat Healey. “With the extra day, our attendance will be spread out over a longer period, which will help with social distancing.”
Held at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida, this special RSVP boat show will run Thursday, January 28, through Saturday, January 30, 2021. To maintain the highest safety and health protocols, sea trials will be limited to customers under contract and must be arranged through Viking or Valhalla dealers. Special measures will be taken to make this a safe and enjoyable experience for all. More details about the RSVP protocol will follow in the coming weeks.
