2016 Holiday Edition – ATLANTIC, Freeport, New York – 1935
Captain Abraham "Abe" Stenzel and Captain Thomas Carman's "ATLANTIC" from Freeport, New York. She was built in 1934 at Brookhaven, NY and was what boatmen at the time commonly referred to as a "sailing hull' style party boat. She was sold in 1952 to Captain Carl Forsberg who continued to sail her under the "ATLANTIC" name from Montauk, NY. At the time, the "ATLANTIC" was the only vessel in the Viking Fleet not to bear a VIKING name (she was finally renamed as the "VIKING" in 1956.) In 1962, the boat was sold and relocated to Portland, Maine and continued to sail as the "VIKING". Her present fate is unknown.
