16′ Open – Challenger Edition All Welded Aluminum Boat

About This Boat

Big and 'beamy' are what come to mind when you look at this fully welded open boat, with its integral 5" aluminum gunnels and aluminum floor. Adding optional under deck fuel tanks, a bow locker and fish box make it a complete package. Not to be confused with a stereotypical open boat, the 16' Open Challenger is a rock solid, sea worthy, fishing platform.

Why Silver Streak Boats?

Aluminum boats require a lot less maintenance than fiberglass boats. Aluminum is more durable, longer lasting, and easier to maintain. All our boats are available with a selection of bottom paint options to meet your specific boating needs.

Andy Barry - Owner of Silver Streak Boats has been building a reputation for building the finest aluminum boats on the west coast since 1979. Find out for yourself why our aluminum boats are among the most sought after, both new, and used.

All Welded Aluminum Boats means there are no rivets or other seals or connections that weaken overtime, create leaks, and will eventually fail. Welded aluminum boats are among some of the toughest boats out there. Probably why they have become a staple of the west coast.

Our aluminum boats require very little ongoing maintenance. No carpets to maintain, no wood to replace and clean. High quality electrical connections mean minimal effort to maintain. Outboard motors mean a simple "end of life" switch, and protect your investment.

Client Testimonials

Dear Andy Barry,

I am Troy (last name) and I met you on 4/11/14. I would like to thank you for touring us through the boats. I had lots of fun and you helped my family make the decision for that 21 foot special edition phantom to be our future boat. I also would like to thank the receptionist who’s name I didn’t get for the hat. That is my favorite hat and have already had tons of comments on it. That tour inspired me to start a “boat fund” and save money to chip in a little bit to our future boat. Hope to see you in 5 years or less getting a new boat from your company. Sincerely, Troy

Troy S.
