Vessel Walkthrough

The 2006 56 Viking OSPREY III can easily be boarded from her swim platform or straight into the cockpit.  Once on board you cannot help but feel her wide 18’2” beam. This beam allows for the cockpit to easily accommodate a fishing team or party crowd.  The centerpiece of the cockpit is perhaps the coolest and most ingenious rocket launcher I have ever seen.  The 7 rod launcher, when not being used for fishing has a custom slide out MAGMA propane grill for dockside or underway barbecues.

When you come to HMY, you’ll quickly understand that we are the authority for new and used Viking Yachts.

Most Viking owners at some point in their boating life come through HMY Yachts. One reason is our Viking Product Team has extensive hands-on experience.

If you’re looking for a knowledgeable Viking expert, look no further than HMY. All of this combined makes HMY the best brokerage to help you find the best used Viking or new Viking Yacht on the market while receiving an exceptional client experience.


Viking Yachts has become a global leader in the luxury sportfish and motor yacht industry.

Founded in the early 1960’s by Bob and Bill Healey, Viking built its vessels much like Carolina builders, assembling the boats on frames at intervals throughout the manufacturing facility. By 1972 they were already working on the first all-fiberglass model, the Viking 33C, and building their way into history as one of the finest yachting brands in the world. Viking quickly grew into a major U.S.-based yacht builder and leader in its industry in less than a decade. In the 80’s Viking acquired Gulfstar Yachts in Florida, whose designs were considered by many to be some of the best in the industry and incorporated some new innovations furthering their place in the industry. Re-investing with their own money in the early ’90s, the brand has been on top of the world ever since.


From a 38-foot sportfishing boat to 93-foot motor yachts with semi-custom fiberglass, advanced flybridges, tuna towers, and impressive outriggers, Viking yachts carry a tradition of excellence, innovative technology, and family history. Most Viking Yachts models are manufactured in-house to ensure maximum attention to detail and impeccable quality control in every sport yacht, open bridge convertible, enclosed bridge convertible, billfish, and the open series yacht that is produced.
