27' Historic 1929

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.

History Of The Vessel

Expertly constructed by Ditchburn Boatworks of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, a renowned custom Canadian builder. 

The Viking model is regarded as one of the most spectacular boats to come out of the Ditchburn factory. A high performance planing hull, the Viking was capable of speeds over 40mph and the design spawned from the company's winning fleet of Rainbow Gold Cup raceboats.

Originally powered with a Kermath overhead cam 6 cylinder engine, producing 225hp, she has been repowered with a Mercruiser Horizon for reliability and ease of use.

Only 7 Viking models were built by Ditchburn, and this example was purchased new by the Toronto Harbor Police as a high speed pursuit boat for their fleet in 1929. Fully restored and in excellent condition, her original Kermath engine is also included in the sale.
