    A Viking is a Viking.

    This Viking is Norwegian, but We Norse are all the same

    "I can't drive 55"

    It did about 55 knots in 2009 and several improvements have been done, so in these videos I bet it's quite a bit faster than the previously stated 55. This Viking probably repeated after Sammy Hagar, "I can't drive 55".

    Persistence pays...

    Trond is in pursuit of a higher top speed. In this test-run he was running 78 mph. With a father onboard and not yet ultimately propped, I think that mid 80's should eventually easily be accomplished in this little Viking ship.

    Hi guys.

    Cool to find my boat in a forum I never knew existed!!
    The fastest GPS-measured top speed is 80.5mph, but I have yet to test it with a big enough prop and full throttle

    Thumbs up Thanks for sharing!

    Good to see that You've found this very friendly and informative Donzi forum. I would have responded earlier to Your great photos, but have had some computer problems lately. Keep Us up to speed in the future Trond and welcome to The Donzi Registry.

    Ha det gott, Lars.

    Thumbs up Impressive

    Great video as always Trond. Almost 70 knots and just about 80 mph in this 11 footer sure is impressive. Have a fantastic 'syttande mai' and a wonderful boating season. Keep the videos coming
