ATLANTIC, Freeport, NY – 1938
In 1938, the "ATLANTIC" sailed from Freeport, New York under the command of Captain Abraham 'Abe' Stenzel. This 56-foot boat was built in 1934 at Brookhaven, NY and was what boatmen at the time commonly referred to as a 'sailing hull' style party boat.
In 1952, Captain Stenzel sold the boat 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.
