18′ Sportsman Challenger – Landing Craft Side Console All Welded Aluminum Boat

About This Boat

The Sportsman model is a simplified landing craft design to maximize space and decrease weight. It is an ideal work boat or suited to those looking to bring their ATV to remote areas. An excellent design for anyone with water access property. Built with a high bow door and vee bottom, these boats will go where any other model of boat will go and then some! With a wider beam and larger bow door than the 18' standard model, the XW (extra wide) model is ideal for those who need a little more "hauling" capabilities.

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
