Overview & Owner Comments
The Viking is regarded as one of the most spectacular boats to come out of Herb Ditchburn's factory.
Fine Canadian craftsmanship, astute attention to detail, and a design spawned from the success of Ditchburn's trophy fleet of Rainbow raceboats. Only 7 Ditchburn Vikings exist today and it is very rare for one to become available for sale.
This example bears hull #5 and was originally purchased by the Toronto Harbor Police as a high speed pursuit vessel. She was factory equipped with a fire suppression system safety system and fireproof panels lining the engine compartment.
Her original Kermath engine has been restored and is sold with the boat. She currently sports modern power.
The boat was saved and restored on the West coast, but now resides in her original home of Muskoka.
