The Viking Yacht Company proudly introduces Valhalla Boatworks, a new company dedicated to designing and building high-performance center consoles with the same Viking quality, craftsmanship and expertise that has led the marine industry for 55 years.
With strong attendance, brisk sales activity and the debut of our two new flagships – the Viking 90 and Valhalla 55 – the 2023 VIP Boat Show was a smashing success.
“It was incredible,” said Viking President and CEO Pat Healey. “On the first day, Friday, we had our highest-ever turnout in the history of the 27-year event. And we had a good showing on Saturday, too, even though the weather didn’t cooperate.” Seven Vikings and the same number of Valhallas were sold, with several other deals in the works. The fact that the Viking Yacht Company debuted not one but two flagships made the two-day event epic in itself. “These boats are bad-ass,” said Pat in his kick-off speech to dealers and vendors. “The Viking 90 and V-55 will not only become the leaders in their class, but they’re also going to dominate their classes. They’re that good.” Pat also took the opportunity to thank our dealers and vendors for helping make the VIP a truly unique marine exhibition. “We thank you for all your support,” said Pat. “You are the best."
The V-55 and Viking 90 stole the spotlight with non-stop sea trials and dockside walk-throughs. Hull No. 1 of the 90 is a striking Kingston Grey Sky Bridge model with six staterooms, seven heads and jaw-dropping faux teak mezzanine and upper aft deck.The V-55 features a Haze Grey gelcoat, a custom Palm Beach Towers gap tower with carbon fiber outriggers and quad Mercury V12 600s.
In addition to the flagships, a full fleet of Vikings and Valhallas were on display and available for sea trials. The lineup included Vikings from 46 to 90 feet and Valhallas from 33 to 55 feet. Our VIP allows dealers and owners to spend plenty of time together on the boats in a relaxed stress-free setting.In addition to the flagships, a full fleet of Vikings and Valhallas were on display and available for sea trials.

Another unique aspect of our VIP is the vendor village, where more than 50 of our business partners display their products, answer questions and assist attendees with all their boating and fishing needs.
