Viking Kayaks USA is excited to announce that the Viking Kayaks purchased in the US will now be receiving the same 30-year warranty as is offered in their country of origin, New Zealand. “These kayaks are top of the line, made with a liner polyethylene that’s higher quality than many of the boats out there. We felt it important to demonstrate to the kayakers in the United States that the Viking Kayaks offered here are the same great quality as the boats purchased in New Zealand because these ARE the same boats. So, it only seemed right that we offer the 30-year warranty,” said Bill Bragman, president of Yak Gear, the national distributor for Viking Kayaks in the U.S.
In addition to the 30-year warranty announcement, Yak Gear is also excited to announce a new website which will support sales in the United States. Bragman described the new site as “a great place to go to find information on individual boats, a place to register your kayaks after purchase, and the best place to find Viking Kayaks USA dealer nearest you.” The website address for the new site is www.VikingKayaksUSA.com
And, it’s not just a new warranty and new website in the U.S. that is making the news. Viking Kayaks is also offering three color blends now, so you’re going to see a variety of new color mixes available now. “The new Profish 400 is now offered with a yellow, red and black blend called ‘Coral’ which is a great example of how these 3-color blends can add a unique look to the boats,” said Bragman.
And, there’s more. The kayaks now sport a new, updated logo.
And, not unlike a late-night infomercial, there’s more; Viking Kayaks USA is so excited about all that’s going on with the brand that they crafted a clever video to celebrate that the ‘new’ Vikings have landed on U.S. shores again.
Yak Gear began operating as the sole distributor for Viking Kayaks in the United States in 2014. This was a result of Bragman having personally paddled the watercraft, and being so excited about them that he felt strongly he had to introduce them to the paddling public here in the states. Since 2014, they have expanded their dealer network throughout the U.S., along the East Coast, the Gulf Coast, and now the West Coast. They’re focused on offering an excellent product to the American paddler via Viking Kayaks USA, and invite paddlers to join them as they “Explore New Horizons.”
