Ride is another signature feature, and as much as it pains me to use such hackneyed language, the 58 Super Sport runs fast, soft, and dry. It has a prop-pocketed bottom that allows a shallow 4'4" draft, which grants the 58 Super Sport access to shallower harbors than the Viking. A bit of flam (concavity) just above the waterline at the bow provides extra buoyancy, so the bow can lift sooner, which minimizes the chance of stuffing a wave while trolling. Sitting in the ladder-backed helm chair, even with 10 guests on the crescent lounge forward, you have great visibility fore and aft. Move the levers. Turning big wheels, you can feel the 58 Super Sport's power and torque with increases as small as 50 rpm. It handles like a sports car -- a 70,000-pound, 3,000-horsepower sports car. Peek inside the helm console to see an example of neatly run, well-sealed wiring.
