2006 Sea-Doo Challenger 180 Jet in High Ridge, Missouri

Stock #118901

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

This 2006 Sea-Doo Challenger 180 is an economy-minded 18-footer designed as a versatile family sportboat. With room for eight people, plenty of storage,this one has the optional wakeboard tower.

What Sea-Doo offers that the competitors can't is the added benefits of a jet boat's extremely shallow draft, uniquely responsive maneuvering, and inherent safety over propeller-driven boats

.Benefits of Jet PowerIn essence, jet power pumps water out the stern to push the boat through the water, rather than pulling a boat through the water by a propeller. Water is drawn from beneath the boat and forced through a pump inside the engine compartment, and then ejected out the back of the boat through a 6-inch diameter nozzle to propel the boat. The nozzle turns for steering, and a "reversing bucket" folds down over the nozzle to direct water straight down for neutral, and toward the bow for reverse.

This Challenger 180 can go into water almost as shallow as the hull, about twelve inches. And with no outdrive to raise, beaching the boat is simple.

.Improved ManeuverabilityAnother advantage to Sea-Doo's jet power is uncanny maneuverability. With the engine running and the shift in neutral, the Challenger 180 sits nearly stationary, drifting with the wind like a propeller driven boat would. But even though it is not "in gear", the boat still steers by simply turning the wheel, hovering in one spot but still in control.

To maneuver, just turn the wheel until the bow is pointed in the desired direction, shift into forward, and steer normally. While a twin engine boat with a bow thruster comes close, a conventional-powered recreational boat does not have this ability.

Another advantage to jet power, is not having a propeller outside the boat, creating much less chance of injuring a skier or swimmer, although it is always prudent to turn the engine off when a swimmer is alongside. Since a jet boat is always pumping water while running, I find it makes people turn the engine off instinctively - something often ignored on conventionally powered boats.Power and PerformanceTo power the jet, Sea-Doo offers two Rotax engine choices, a 3-cylinder 185 horsepower four-stroke engine, and a similar engine with a supercharger and intercooler that develops 215 horsepower. Our test boat, equipped with the larger engine, topped out at 46 mph, and cruised quite economically at 28.7 mph, burning just 9.1 gph or 3.15 mpg. The boat planned off in 3.8 seconds and went from 0 to 30 in 7 seconds, with plenty of pulling power for water toys.Plenty of FeaturesThe layout of the boat should appeal to family boaters. Sea-Doo calls it a 20-foot cockpit in an 18-foot boat, and I must admit, it does have a lot of room for an 18-footer. There is plenty of seating, a large sun pad with the bow filler cushion installed, and adequate storage. The swim deck is nice too, with a telescoping boarding ladder and well placed handrails to make it easy to climb aboard.The new Challenger 180 has some great features, plus the added safety and maneuverability of Sea-Doo's jet system, making it a great choice for an all-around family boat.
