From the 38 Billfish to the legendary 92 Convertible, Viking Yachts is among the best sportfish builders in the world and has easily been the most successful. This American yacht builder has delivered well over 4,000 vessels and continues to thrive thanks to their investment in their shipyard and core team of designers. Located along the Bass River in New Jersey, the Viking factory nearly stretches a million square feet, has its own water supply, its own hospital, and the most advanced yacht-building equipment money can buy. One such tool is the $1 million five-axis profiler that allows Viking to produce custom molds that wouldn't ordinarily be possible. The Viking 44 Sport Tower is just one recent example of a new model benefitting from this investment.
Viking has also begun building motor yachts and center-consoles. The Viking Motor Yachts range from the 75MY to the stunning 93MY which features 7 staterooms. The new center-console line, Valhalla Boatworks, provides Viking quality from 33 to 46 feet. Whether you are looking to purchase or sell a pre-owned Viking Yacht, Tampa Yacht Sales can help you achieve your boating goals. Our team of yacht brokerage experts have decades of experience, especially in the Florida market.

Viking Yachts F.A.Q's:
Why are Viking Yachts so expensive?: Viking Yachts are among the most expensive sportfishing yachts available in their category from the Billfish series up to the larger Convertibles. Viking uses Balsa Core that is then vacuum-bagged and infused with vinylester resin for a strong, stiff, and flexible hull. These materials, combined with the latest construction techniques, and only the very best equipment all add to the high cost of a Viking. Many pre-owned Viking Yachts, especially late-model vessels that have been well-maintained, will often hold their resale value very well compared to the competition.
Where Are Viking Yachts Made?: The main factory that builds the majority of the Viking models is in New Gretna, New Jersey right along the Bass River. However, in 2016 Viking Yachts acquired the old Ocean Yachts facility that is located right along the Mullica River. Now known as Viking Mullica, many of the smaller Viking Sportfish and the Valhalla Center-Consoles are built at this factory.
How Much Is The Viking 92?: The legenday Viking 92 Convertible is said to cost over $10 million brand new when the best options are added and the highest horsepower. Late-model, pre-owned Viking 92's can range from $7 million to under $9 million on the brokerage market. Still, the Viking 92 has produced countless Billfish Tournament winners and is an icon on the sportfishing industry.
How Many Viking Yachts Are Built Each Year?: The number of yachts Viking builds each year varies greatly with the economy, the market, and the orders from dealers, but it's been said that Viking can build over 100 boats each year between 38 and 92 feet.
