Boat ID: 42508

Viking, renamed Bess in 2002 upon our purchase was built by Hubert Johnson in 1930 for Mr. Swinglehurst of New York. He passed away in 1932 and the boat was sold in 1934 to Max Nydegger who kept her in his boathouse on Lake Winnepasake until his death in 1964. Title then passed to his daughter Mrs. Hugh E. Thomson then her son Hugh E. Thomson Jr. until 1986 when the property was sold. The boat was purchased by Steve Camann of Manchester NH. He promptly had the boat refit and repowered, replacing the original Chrysler Ace with a Flagship 283, by New England Boat & Motor, Inc. Laconia New Hampshire. I purchased her from Mr. Camann in 2002. I relocated her to Sausalito CA for use at Lake Tahoe. During my 20 year custody, she has been totally restored twice, 2002, 2015. She was repowered again in 2018. Fresh varnish and paint 2022. She is warehouse stored during off season and is lift launched during use. She is comfortable big boat, safe and roomy for up to 10 passengers and their gear. As a semi displacement boat, she comes up on plane easily and cruises dry and safe. She can be seen in Florida, Cape Coral, or at the Mt. Dora ACBS show in March. She is a unique boat that needs a new caretaker for the next 20 years.
