Designed to be durable, reliable and comfortable, Yamaha's three and six-seater models are being shipped to Australia, Europe, Russia, Canada and South America from its Georgia facility.

Mr Nessl says they are the only three and six-seater side by side vehicles on the market. 

The Viking line is aimed at a wide spread of landowners, farmers and ranchers and should be a different option to giving more expensive pick-ups a hard time when covering tough terrain.

"I hate to say this in some ways, but its meant to take the place of a pick-up truck," said Mr Nessle. "If landowners don't want to beat up their $80 to $90,000 special edition, perhaps they can take this."

Head rests and seat belts combine with bucket seats to give a comfortable ride, explained Mr Nessl. Capabilities stretch to transporting multiple people and lots of equipment. 

He added: "This is something you can use to be productive, use to be a tool and then, when the work is done, even go for a trail ride."
