The Sea Champion 18...
...is designed and built in the UK using a proven John Bennett hull design. The hand laid hull is traditionally built using the latest materials to give the very highest quality build, seldom seen today, at an affordable price.
The Sea Champion 18 is built specifically with the many demands and uses that both families and fishermen require. A full height cuddy with seating for 4 people gets you out of any inclement weather. Lots of storage including a cavernous under deck locker, which can handle fenders, clothes or your days catch. Whether you are an offshore fisherman or a family using the boat for leisure, you will find the Sea Champion's design gives you smooth handling, stability and a safe ride combined with exceptional performance and reliability.
The Sea Champion 18 is superior to its competitors in many ways, with the wealth of high quality materials used and specification offered as standard. Check our standard specification. We offer dark blue coloured side panels, helm and co pilot cushioned box seats, clear toughened glass windows with anodised frames (no polycarbonate on this boat), stern boarding ladder, 30mm pulpit rail, 3 lockers in the cuddy, fully moulded engine well, anchor locker and bow roller - all as standard!
The Sea Champion 18's hull has glassed-in foam hull strengthening, (no ply bulkheads), for lightness and strength. This coupled with foam buoyancy in sealed hull areas, full self-draining main deck with gully structure to twin drains, anti slip deck, and generous free board, full length stainless steel rails, and pulpit rail make this boat one of the safest of its type on the water, both for you and your passengers, whatever their age.
The Sea Champion 18 boat, engine and trailer packages are available with a choice of engines and accessories, all of which are towable behind the average family car or 4x4.
