Viking Engineer Tino Karbautzki has devoted his entire career to marine engineering, save for a brief stint as an automotive mechatronics engineer. Upon completing high school, Tino began a three-year apprenticeship with the German ferry operator Scandlines, which eventually led to his employment as a ship mechanic. Inspired to continue his studies, he earned a diploma in marine engineering from the Warnemünde Maritime College in 2014. That same year, he joined the Viking family.
As an engineer, Tino is responsible for the installations, as well as the maintenance and service, of all technical systems on board while working closely with the Captain. He also ensures the ship’s compliance with maritime guidelines, instructions and regulations. And, in the off-season, he serves as harbor engineer at our winter harbor.
