HMY’s Viking Yachts Monthly Update: April

Viking Key West Challenge

HMY Yachts proudly participated in the 9th Annual Viking Key West Challenge, presented by Christi Insurance Group and Travelers Insurance, this month. This event had over 50 boats participate and hosted over 500 people in Key West, April 12-15.  

HMY staff and brokers gathered with the Viking team, owners, and clients to enjoy a week of competition and fun! Anglers, crews and guests attended a high-spirited Captains’ Meeting Cocktail Party, al fresco Welcome Banquet, relaxing Lay Day Pool Party Lunch, energetic Kids Dock Tournament and animated Duval Street Bar Crawl Poker Run. 

HMY Client, Jackie Hinden said “We’ve been to every single Key West Challenge. We keep coming back because we love Viking. We love Key West, and we really enjoy the camaraderie and social aspect. There’s nothing like it.” Her team took third overall on her Viking 58, “Bimini”. 

“We can’t say enough about Viking – they make it so much fun,” added HMY Client Frank Tattoli, who has owned three Vikings, the latest the 52 “Private Island”. “We don’t fish tournaments, but this one is different, with all the events and activities. It’s like one big family coming together.” 

We are already looking forward to getting together with everyone next year. The 10th Annual Viking Key West Challenge will take place April 3-7, 2024. Slips are already filling up! Call Logan Pryor for assistance in reserving a spot, 561-267-9992.
