2009 Sea-Doo Challenger 180 Jet in Ontario, California

Stock #132680

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

If you're in the market for the perfect small boat for lakes, river or ocean fun, look no further than this Sea-Doo Challenger 180. She may be small but with a passenger capacity of 8 and the Supercharged engines, she rips across the water.

Even though the 180 is a small platform, Sea-Doo's engineers and designers have made creative use out of all the available spaces on the boat with dry storage, integrated coolers, and seating.

The Challenger 180 does have a surprisingly wide beam for a short boat. The 8 feet, 2 inches across gave Sea-Doo the ability to build in a number of creature comforts and storage areas that are comparable to larger sport boats.

The bow is flanked with two mini chaise lounges and a center cushion that slides out to create a small sun pad. There are a couple of cup-holders here as well as two rugged handholds. Under both of the lounges is glassed-in draining storage, great for ice and drinks.

A walkway cuts through the helm leading to the cockpit -- in the deck of the walkway, there is a large ski locker with a tight seal and a spring that holds the lid open.

The helm to port features a deep glove box that is an ideal area to keep a few changes of dry clothes. This is also where the Jensen Sirius capable AM/FM CD player and a 12v outlet are located. Along the inboard, gunwale is another cupholder, more storage, and a padded armrest. The swivel bucket seat is adjustable forward and aft.

To port is the driver's helm, which houses a standard cluster of instruments and switches. Like the port bucket seat, the driver's seat swivels and can be adjusted forward and aft, but no bolster.

The rear bench has plenty of room for three with more storage under the seats. A hatch opens aft to port to reveal battery storage and to starboard to reveal more storage and side access to the engine. The engine access hatch is supported by gas-assist shocks.

All the way aft is a large integrated swim platform, with a ladder and grab handles makes family water sports much more convenient, safe and enjoyable.

The powerplant is a Supercharged 255 hp Rotax Marine 4-TEC in-line three-cylinder four-stroke and will push the boat up to about 49 miles per hour.

ONe aftermarket part the owners had put on the boat is the thrust Vector which gives you much more control over steering the single engine jet boat.

Jet Drive Advantage

While jet drives make up a small fraction of the boating market, they do have some advantages over prop-driven inboards and stern drives worth noting. The main advantage is a shallow draft. Because the water intake to the jet pump is at the skin of the underside of the craft and the thrust nozzle out behind the transom (instead of below it), jet drives are some of the shallowest drafting craft available.

The 180 only drafts 1 foot, which is about 1 or 1.5 feet less than a runabout of the same size with a stern drive. This means greater access to the shallows and less worry overall about striking ground.

Information On Condition

This two owner boat has only been used in freshwater its entire life and has about 40 hours total on the boat.

The current owners have only put about 8 hours of use on her. They run her in the driveway occasionally to keep her fresh and ready to go.

There are a couple of dock scrapes on the starboard bow, but hardly noticeable.

The Hydroturf keeps the floor of the boat clean, is cooler on the feet and helps with safety, due to its non-slip properties.
