This handsome harbor tug was built in 1962 by the Davie Shipbuilding Company of Lauzon, QC as the Foundation Viking for Foundation Maritime. Eastern Canada Towing purchased the tug in 1973, and she was renamed Point Viking. The tug was later sold to a company in Stephenville, NL. In the mid-2000s, Construction Polaris purchased the tug.

Point Viking is now used in the construction trades on the Lower North Shore area of Quebec.
