Dun Laoghaire Harbour marine retailer Viking Marine has made The Irish Times Irish retailers online Christmas shopping list edited by Consumer Affairs Correspondent, Conor Pope.

Viking Marine say they are delighted to be included in this list of top online retailers. Online sales continue to grow since the launch of the new website in August, according to Viking's Ian O'Meara. 

O'Meara and the team are delighted with the growth in sales and positive customer feedback and he says 'The growth in numbers of people taking to sea swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding has introduced a whole new community of shoppers to Viking Marine who enjoy both the on-line and the click and collect service, as we are located on the doorstep of some of Ireland's greatest swimming locations'.  And whilst we may be somewhat out of season for sailing more and more of our young dinghy sailors are still getting out on the water'.

As regular Afloat readers will recall from W M Nixon's piece about Viking from September, the re-shaping of the business has been noted for retaining customer loyalty while being a highly respected element in the development of Dun Laoghaire' commercial, civic and watersports life.
