An Explanation of names: Viking Yachts, Princess Yachts and Viking Sport Cruisers (VSC)

In 1995 Viking Yachts, legendary for building sport fishing boats, saw increasing U.S. demand for a sporty European motor yacht. Viking partnered with the high-end U.K. builder, Princess Yachts, to bring their boats into the U.S. under the Viking brand. It was named the Viking Sport Cruiser (VSC). Thus in 1996 the first Viking Sport Cruiser was imported into the U.S. By the later 1990’s this collaboration expanded to 13 models from 40′ to 84′. Beginning in model year 2011 Viking and Princess changed the Viking Sport Cruiser name back to Princess Yachts for all boats imported into the Western Hemisphere. Princess’s parent company, luxury-goods powerhouse LVMH, owns many brands including Louis Vuitton, De Beers, and Feadship Yachts. As of 2017 Viking Sport Cruisers continues as the distributor under the Viking Yachts umbrella to import Princess Yachts.
