    2016 Charger 186

    Heres a great deal for guys wanting to save some cash,and still get the ride and speed.This 186 is one big boat at 18'6" and 93 inch beam it has a ton of rear deck and front deck room..With the squared off transom it gives you alot more rear deck area...It has the same interior as the big boats ,bench wrap around seats, full gauge pkg ,dual console standard,huge rod and double storage boxes up front.Plus the front storage box can be turned into a very big livewell. and with a 175 pro xs you will see speeds of up to 70....This boat runs very good and has a ton of lift..The running surface is very close to the new 797....
    Heres the starting deal 33,000 with a 150 pro xs or 35,000with a 175 pro xs.You can add options of your choice.Hds units,36 volt trolling motor,Livorsi gauges http://www.livorsi.com/,full hull colors , padded decks,tandom trailer,Etc.

    These are not to scale to each other,but close,the first is a 496 the second is a 186 and the bottom is a 396...

    186 running with a 150 4 stroke suzuki,top speed no plate 2 guys 60.....with a plate and a 175 proxs its going to be fast.

    There was one at the tourney with a 150 yamaha 4 stroke and the one time I saw it on the water it was flat flying. It had to be running over 60.

    Can you get this boat with the bigger HDS8 or HDS 10 flush mounted in the console. Also can you get with a single console---possibly removeable?

    I don't think the HDS 8 or 10 would fit flush mounted. Dual console only.

    Nice! Nothing gets up in the shallows like an 18.5 footer!


    Too bad you can't get single console tho, a console takes up a ton of room in a boat that size.

    This is something I left out ,the 186 ,296,396and 496 ,596 or all the same size on the seating area
    This is a big plus,I have been in alot of other boats and smaller the boat the tighter the seating area,heck some I cant even get into the seat,and the gear shifter is way behind me....With the Chargers you wont have this problem.

    I love this size boat. It is a little small for lake O, but you just have to learn to deal with what you got. The smaller boats are not only easier to manuver in and out of the docks, they are better on gas both on the water and towing down the highway. During the owners TX, i went from PB2 to the dam both days, WFO, and a ton of places in between, on one tank of gas with a carburated motor! With a DFI or 4 stroke, you could probably get by with a 25 gal gas tank.

    I would like to see this boat with a removable console and put some storage in the rear deck for your partner shtuff. Take one of livewells, move it up front like Matt said and make one of them in the back into a tackle orginizer. Just my 2 cents!

    Re: Charger 2012 186 (bassin again)

    One of the reasons I'm still in a 18' 7" boat is because of how easy it is to get in and out of gas stations, not to mention how well it gets around a small lake or a congested marina. When I'm on the MO river I just zig-zag around all those big Lund and Ranger walleye boats and zip right up onto my trailer while they are all still waiting. Charger will prolly sell alot of those 186's. Thanks for posting those pics. You guys are really good about that on this forum.

    A few years ago they made the CX line and they had a 186 CX available in single console---Anyone know if they are still doing that?
    Aren't all the 6 series boats modular consoles anyway?(NOT MOLDED IN WITH THE TOP DECK) So they should be available without putting in the passenger console.

    The cx line was the stripped down version of the 195.the new 186 is a wider body and squared
    transom.These do not have the the modular consoles, but are the newer euro looking ones.

    Don't all the 6 series boats have MODULAR consoles (NOT molded into the top cap). If so why could you just not get with the single console?

    No, the consoles are molded into the top cap. They cannot be removed.

    So the 797 is the first bass boat Charger has built with Modular Consoles?

    Got it----so this 186 has a hull similar to the 797---but top cap is more like the current newly reintroduced 195 except for the modular consoles that both e NEW 195 and 791 offer.

    This 186 really needs modular consoles---so can have single console.
