Phenomenal FLIBS 11/24/2021
Viking Yachts and Valhalla Boatworks saw record attendance and robust sales at the 2021 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, with a combined 27 boats sold between the two brands.

“The boat show was just incredible – everything we thought it would be and then some,” said Viking President and CEO Pat Healey. “Even with our significant backlog, we were able to sell 16 Vikings and 11 Valhallas. We’re extremely pleased, and appreciate the tremendous support and enthusiasm from everyone in our growing Viking and Valhalla family.”

The show got off to a fast start and never let up, with visitors eager to check out the world’s finest sportfishing yachts and center consoles. The display included nine Vikings from 46 to 82 feet and four Valhallas from 33 to 46 feet. Attendance was strong throughout the five-day event, setting a first-day record for Wednesday and peaking on Friday and Saturday. Total attendance for Viking eclipsed the 7,000-visitor mark for the third time since the show switched to its current Wednesday-to-Sunday format several years ago.

The high attendance was no surprise considering the amount of exciting new product the New Jersey builder had to offer. Viking kicked things off on Wednesday morning before the show opened with a press conference highlighting the world premiere of the 64 Convertible and the 54 Open Series. With more than 60 media members on hand, Viking also announced the all-new Viking 90 as its next flagship. The 90 will make its world debut at the 2023 Miami Yacht Show.
