|Rune Viksund (C.E.O.)|
Viksund was among the pioneers for fiberglass boatbuilding in Norway, and attracted significant early sales. By the late 1960s the farmhouse faiclity was outgrown and Viksund relocated to Strusshaum. By the 1970s Viksun was one of Norway's largest boat-building firms, producing fishing vessels and motor yachts for export and domestic use.
In the late 1980s the company was restructured after a fall in the market. New models were developed, and by the late 1990s Viksund was again among Norway's largest biggest boat building firms. Since 2000 the company has focused exclusively on motor yachts ranging from 30–40 feet, including the Viksund 320, Viksund 340 St Cruz, and the Viksund 360 St Cruz.
Viksund employs seventy people and produces approximately 80 yachts a year. It is run by Erling Viksund's son, Rune Viksund.
Turnover in 2007 was $US18.5 million. The export rate of the company is around 35% and the main export countries are Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Russia.
In 2008 Viksund Asia opened a new production and distribution point in Negombo, Sri Lanka. The boats are distributed to Maldives and other Asian countries.
