Mechanical installer Orlando Virella prepares one of two MTU 10V2000 M96Ls (1622MHP) to be hoisted into the engineroom of a 58 Convertible. The 10-cylinder MTUs and the design of the boat’s running surface combine to deliver a fast, efficient and dry ride with a 42-knot top speed.

Working on the removable backrest frame for a flybridge lounge, Isaac Orellana sands the welds to a smooth finish prior to powder coating. Our flybridges balance form and function, with a center console that gives the captain 360-degree visibility and walk-around access but also a diverse seating selection and ample stowage throughout.

More than 90 percent of every Viking is built in-house, including this 38 Billfish‘s hardtop frame, which is manufactured and prepared for installation in the Metal Shop at Viking. Foreman Evan Bahrle, who has a degree in welding fabrication engineering from Penn State, oversees a team of 20 welders, fabricators and painters.

Step inside the salon of a Viking and you’re immediately taken aback by its exquisite interior woodwork, which is created in the multi-faceted Viking department known as “The Mill.”

This small piece of walnut hardwood is one of about 15 parts that make up the port air conditioning soffit on a 72 Convertible. Finisher and sprayer Jose Lara is flattening the polyester sealer coat in preparation for its satin topcoat.
