Building a better boat every day has been Viking’s philosophy for over four and a half decades, and this is why Viking enjoys an enviable status as the country’s leading builder of convertible yachts. Viking strides to lead the industry in performance, innovation, engineering and luxury – the “Viking Difference.”
Brothers Bill and Bob Healey founded the Viking Yacht Company in 1964 when they purchased Viking Builders, a revered New Jersey manufacturer of wooden sport fishing and cruising boats. This family owned and operated company built its first all-fiberglass model-the Viking 33 Convertible, followed up with the Viking 40, which sold over 400 within a ten-year period.
With its six production lines, Viking can build over 100 yachts a year from 42 to 82 feet. Other than a few major components, such as engines and appliances, virtually every part of a Viking is designed and manufactured on the premises giving Viking an inherent quality control advantage. In addition, each yacht is thoroughly inspected by dedicated personnel during the build process. This attention to detail ensures greater reliability, safety and customer satisfaction.
Viking raises the bar front by incorporating the best in design and performance. Powder-coated structural steel engine beds isolate vibration and ensure drive train alignment. The Delta-T hull-side mounted ventilation system keeps the engine room dry and combustion and propulsion noise levels low. From technical advancements like underwater exhaust systems and tank testing to designer touches like curved doorways and exquisite joinery, Vikings are the epitome of luxury and seagoing excellence.

Lady Grace has twin Detroit engines with a cruising speed on 21 knots. There is a stairway to the flybridge and a custom pipewelders hard top with full Eisenglass enclosure (New 2008). The main salon furniture was also purchased in 2008. In 2009 new floor and wall paper was installed in all heads. She was hauled in September 2010 and her bottom was painted, Running Gear & Props were painted with Prop Speed, & all Cutless Bearings were replaced. After a huge price reduction the asking price for this Lady is only $460K but the owners will consider any reasonable cash offer!
