A seamless blend of performance and beauty, the first-generation Viking 58C enjoyed one the of longest production runs in Viking history.
The Viking 58 is an updated version of the Viking 57 Convertible (1989–90) with a sharper entry, additional bow flare, and a slightly redesigned transom. For the passionate angler, the 58’s unrivaled speed and range made her the ultimate performance convertible. For the family that travels to far-off places, luxurious accommodations made her a prestigious cruising yacht. The hull retains the same wide 18-foot beam as her predecessor which accounts for the spacious interior and cockpit dimensions. Viking employed several three-stateroom galley-up layouts in the 58C during her decade-long production run, each with an amidships owner’s suite and three full heads with separate stall showers. The sprawling 168 square-foot cockpit includes a transom door, an in-deck fish box, a molded tackle center, and direct engine room access. A popular Enclosed Bridge model with salon access to the upper helm became available in 1995. Updates in 1997 included restyled frameless windows and a new extended flybridge. One of Vikings most successful models, 110 of these first-generation 58Cs were built. MAN 1,200hp (or Cat 1,400hp) diesels cruise at 28–30 knots (low 30s top).
The optional enclosed bridge shares the features of the open bridge model with a climate controlled helm reached from the salon or cockpit.
With three luxurious staterooms and three full heads, the roomy accommodations of the 58C make it a comfortable family cruiser.
