18’6″ Runabout Hard Top – Challenger All Welded Aluminum Boat
About This Boat
One of our most popular boat models, the classic Silver Streak Challenger has been in production in some variation for 25+ years! With heavy duty sides, solid gunnels, side stiffeners, and lots of leg room, this stable model offers a big boat feel and separates this boat from the competition. The extra beam and gunnel height makes the Challenger simply the strongest and safest boat in its class. The 18 degree deadrise, integrated delta pad and transom pod all increase fuel economy and stability, while tackling anything the West Coast can throw at it. This vessel has the perfect balance of a big boat feel, while still being maneuverable on a trailer and at sea. Throw some crab traps on the roof, add some rod holders and enjoy this salty boat!
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 1987. 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.
