1958 Century Viking 
Solid lapstrake mahogany hull. 
The boat was repowered at some point by Marine Power Inc. From what little  research I did the boat originally came with around 55 horsepower. Looking at Marine Power Inc. Website I found that the engine is most likely a 3.0 mercruiser variant with around 170 Hp! New gauge cluster with depth gauge, new wiring. 
More info would be available by calling Marine Power as the engine has a model and serial number that is produced by them. 
Previous owner stated everything worked. Interior cushions are in great condition as well without rips or stains. 
Has a aluminum fuel tank custom made for the boat. There is a small amount of fuel that will need to be drained. 
Everything is there and hooked up and will be ready to go with the completion of the paint job. 
There is a 30" crack or so in one plank on the bottom, about 1/16th -1/8" wide. Everyone has there own way of fixing these types of repairs. Nothing out of the norm for a boat of this age. 
I'm looking to move this boat fast so please make your best offer. ALSO!!! 
Clear title for both boat and trailer. 
Trailer has rust spots here and there but would be a good candidate for a repaint as it is a heavy duty custom model. 
The boat was stored inside for the last 15 year that I know about. The last three years it was kept under a carport with custom cover that can be seen in pictures. 
It has been outside for the past few weeks, covered very well. 
Clean bilge, battery maintainer under drivers bench seat. 
All mechanical aspects of the boat seem in great condition. 
The boat will also come with the oars pictured along with a antique anchor, and vintage life vest.
