Captain Dan Lewis was born and raised in New York, and has been fishing his whole life. He began fishing freshwater but quickly found a love for saltwater fishing, targeting Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, Albacore Tuna and others while in the USA. At less than 30 years old, Captain Dan has already proven his worth and expertise as he has quickly added many tournament wins to his name and has gained recognition for his vessel. Needless to say, Dan takes fishing very seriously, and you can feel sure to know that he will always be thinking ahead and planning for the most productive day on the water for his anglers. If he had to choose, he would say that Blue Marlin fishing using lures is his favorite, but he also enjoys the year round Striped Marlin and Yellowfin fishery that Cabo offers. When he’s not fishing he enjoys scuba diving, free diving and going to the beach.

LARGEST FISH CAUGHT TO DATE (2020):
The 58 Convertible is the culmination of nearly 55 years of Viking design, engineering and manufacturing and the best the industry has to offer in sportfishing boat innovation.
Since its September 2020 debut, the second-generation 58 Convertible has received a plethora of five-star reviews from journalists, Viking dealers and captains who’ve raved about her bone-dry ride, nimble handling, large cockpit, free-flowing spacious interior and a host of other attributes. And as the first owners began to take delivery, word was spreading throughout sportfishing ports around the globe that the Viking Yacht Company has delivered yet another bluewater champion destined for greatness.
“We’re successful with every model we release, but there are times when you hit one right out of the ball park,” says Viking President and CEO Pat Healey.
The performance of the new 58 C has been its most lauded attribute so far, and at 165 square feet, the 58 Convertible’s cockpit is the largest in its class—a full 12 square feet bigger than its closest competitor. The starboard-side full-length fishbox is insulated and removable, while the port side contains two in-deck storage boxes. The forward unit is rigged as a live well too.
The three-stateroom, two-head layout offers maximum flexibility for cruising as well as campaigning on the tournament trail. Handcraft innerspring mattresses with quilted designer bed spreads; and recessed stereo speakers are some of the comforts and conveniences found in all three staterooms.
As you would expect from Viking, the master suite is especially spacious and elegant with an athwartship queen walk-around bed and upholstered headboard that faces an HD TV mounted on the inboard bulkhead. Storage includes a credenza, drawers under the bed, end tables, and his and her maple-lined hanging lockers.
The forward guest stateroom comes with either a single walkaround queen. An overhead Bomar foredeck hatch comes with the Ocean Air screen shade system. Rounding out the amenities are a spacious maple-lined hanging locker, reading lights, rope lighting behind the valances, and storage drawers and cabinets.
In the starboard stateroom, you have side-by-side bunks, a maple-lined hanging locker with drawer storage underneath.
