The V58 falls into a sweet spot in the Sport Cruisers lineup, which currently ranges from 50 feet to 95 feet. "Some V58 customers own larger, captained yachts and want a hands-on ride, but most are migrating from smaller U.S.-built express cruisers," said James Nobel, Marketing Director for Viking Sport Cruisers. Indeed the V58's overall length of just under 60 feet places her on the high end of this active niche. "When you get above 50 feet there are a lot more choices and customers tend to shop different brands," said Nobel. The V58 appeals to those who favor express cruiser design and don't care to change the way they spend their time on the water. "Whether they spend an afternoon at the sandbar or a weekend in the Bahamas it is the start-and-go approach to boating that appeals to them."
