The Mill. Don't let the simple name fool you. The men and woman of this multi-faceted Viking department create the sophisticated, highly-detailed interior woodwork in our industry-leading sportfishing and motor yachts. The Mill consists of a 94-member team that includes our Sub Assembly Operation, Joiner Shop and Finish Area. Above: With eyes locked on the target, Anthony Bhagwandeen uses a router to shape a dinette table in the Joiner Shop.
The Mill receives, organizes, stores and cuts all the materials used to build the various components in our boats. Three CNC (Computer Numerical Controlled) routers carve out all shaped parts; a variety of other saws, including a panel saw and table saws, cut lines and corners.
Every piece of material on a Viking that has shape to it other than metals goes through the Mill. The Mill can be working on materials for more than 30 boats at one time.
In addition to wood, the Mill handles cutting and shaping of plastics, foams, acrylics and composites. These materials are stored in multiple seven-stack-high aisles in the Mill warehouse. After being cut on our state-of-the-art Wadkin molding machine, the many styles of moldings are organized on nearby racks.
