18' Sportsman


Our six passenger, 18’ Sportsman is made for the outdoorsman seeking unparalleled access to the world’s most remote places. Whether it’s hunting, fishing, exploring or accessing your remote cabin or house, the Sportsman is in a class all by itself. Powered by a GM 7 liter, 520 hp, LSX coupled to a Century Drive CH-3 this rig is the industry leader in performance and reliability. Eighteen layers of reinforced composite married to a virtually indestructible layer of UHMW polymer assures you of a boat that will last for years and years. In fact, most of our boats, some built more than twenty-five years ago, are still in service. Able to transition from ice to water and back with ease, this boat will get you there and back in heated comfort and safety. The 18 Sportsman is capable of handling everything from taking on Lake Superior in January (see the Red Bull story on our website) to maneuvering on the smallest inland lakes and rivers. When the going get’s tough it’s time to rely on the toughness and reliability of the 18 Sportsman.
