Got it----I was totally confused about this 186. I thought it was a NEWLY designed boat, like the re-introduced- redesigned 195 and the ALL NEW 797.
Then I seen this: http://chargerboats.com/186.htm
and realized its the same as what you have been describing above and also realized this is the same 186 that has been available for a the last few years now. Its really NOT a NEW model for 2012.
The reason I worded it like that was to get the attention of guys that have the older 186 narrow body design.Most guys have never seen this model.I wish they would of changed the model number to 286 or something,alot of guys still think its the old 186,but it is basically a 396 just shorter and rated for a 175......
But the price is whats really the eye catcher,32,000 with a 175pro xs is a heck of a deal in todays world of 55,000 dollar bass boats...
Sorry for the confusion
Looking through bassin mag and ranger has the new 177 for 30,000 with a 115 ....That makes the 186 a he k of a deal at 30 witha 150 and 2k more for a 175....Thats a foot more boat and more hp for less money.
Quick question, I see people are referring to the "old style" 186, and was wondering when the "new" style was introduced? I am looking at buying an 06 and I can't seem to tell a difference from the pics from the "new" style and the one I am looking at. Is that because they are the same style or are the differences I am missing?
