Gunnar Vikingur, The Managing Director of Vikal International, commenced independent operations as a sole trader and contractor in January 1976 working on new boat constructions and repairs. In 1982, he formed the family company now known as Vikal International Pty Ltd. By 1992 he had won his first contract to build Super Yacht Tenders. Gunnar is a Shipwright by trade, and a hands on manager working daily in both the office and workshop. In 2013, Gunnar's Son, Lynden Vikingur joined the family business.
Since 1992, Vikal have delivered nearly 60 tenders to Motor Yachts over 75 Meters. Beginning with M/Y Coral Island, the two 7.5m Tenders designed by the late Jon Bannenberg, made a great impact on the European market. Since then, Vikal has specialized in custom design and manufacture of immaculately finished Super Yacht Tenders.
The quality of construction for these Tenders is second to none. Owners expect nothing less. All the Tenders built have been one off and unique in their particular style. Often packed with features specific to the owners request and imagination. Vikal is a unique company, developing fibreglass/carbonfibre construction to sophisticated levels whilst providing engineering solutions. Building to a vast array of requirements whilst ensuring each vessel meets the high quality and integrity standard we set.
