The running surface of each new Viking 70 Convertible (hull #1 is due this summer) will leave the Viking Yachts factory with the premium Interlux® Micron® Technology antifouling system.
Hull #1 of the new Viking Yachts 70 Convertible is painted with the Interlux Micron Technology antifouling system at the Viking factory. Widely recognized by sportfishing anglers for their speed and sea-kindly performance in blue water, Viking is working closely with Interlux to achieve maximum efficiencies from the aggressively-designed hull of the new 70.
“Vikings are designed and built to perform around the world as hard-core tournament fishing machines and luxurious cruising yachts. Micron paint provides exceptional anti-fouling protection that enhances this performance,” said Peter Frederiksen, Viking Yacht’s Director of Communications.
Interlux Micron antifouling paints are designed for multi-season use – boats can be hauled and re-launched without repainting. The polishing action of Micron Technology products such as Micron CSC, Micron Extra and Micron 66® yields a smoother surface than hard antifoulings to maximize on fuel economy and unlike old-fashioned high copper bottom paints, Micron uses less copper more efficiently for the longest-lasting antifouling protection. With world-wide recognition and premier brand association, Micron Technology continues to be a preferred choice by boat builders, boat yards and boat owners.
