        This is the boat that started it all. Forty years ago, Eastern Boats offered only one model, this lovely 18’3” X 6’8” design by Royal Lowell, the Dean of Downeast boat designers. For our 40th Anniversary we have re-introduced her seaworthiness, versatility, and economy of operation. The only changes are all-composite construction, slightly increased freeboard, and a molded inner liner.

       Fishing, beach picnics, tubing, or exploring, our 18 Center Console is up for it, with a micro-sized fuel bill from one of the 50-70-hp clean outboards with which she performs best. As the performance table shows, the 18 CC rises onto plane at speeds in the low ‘teens, cruises efficiently at 16-22 mph, and tops out between 28 and 32, depending on power.  She’ll play all weekend on half a tank of fuel.  And while she has a self-bailing cockpit that adapts well to life on a mooring, she trailers easily behind mid-sized tow vehicles. For boaters who want the simplest vessel possible.
