Boat Description

Stock #069637 -

For nearly four decades, guides from Homosassa to Key West have heralded the exceptional ride and performance of the Shipoke 18

The hull design incorporates 20 degrees of deadrise allowing her to run smoothly and comfortably in chop, yet still be poled in 10" of water.

Whether running wide open in a tournament, poling a flat, or crossing an open bay, the Shipoke 18 provides the versatility modern anglers demand.

Shipoke boats are all equipped with livewell lighting, full navigation and anchor lighting as well as courtesy lighting as standard equipment.

All bilge pumps operate at 1100 GPH and are equipped with automatism float switches.

Boats are built with: Lightweight High Density Core Construction, Integrated Stringer System, Flush Hatches With Gaskets, Heavy Duty Rub Rails, Walkable Gunnels, Finished Interiors, Easy Access To Pumps and Wiring, as well as Custom Placement Of Controls, Rigging, Console and Accessories Resin, Glass and Core

Shipoke boats are made from high grade, UV-resistant polyester resin, Divinycell foam coring and Divinycell PRX-300 transom board. In addition, we hand lay bi-axial knitted fiberglass which increases strength and reduces resin. This makes our boats lighter and stronger than their production counterparts. Quality fit and finish combined with the no wood, unsinkable foam construction make us the perfect choice for the discriminating fisherman.

Not all stainless steel is the same. Unlike most production boat companies, Shipoke use 316 stainless steel for its deck hardware. What's the difference? The composition of 316 stainless steel includes an increased amount of nickel content and the presence of 2%-3% of molybdenum. This unique composition improves performance over 304 stainless in many ways, including: (i) superior resistance to chloride (i.e., salt); (ii) improved resistance to corrosive chemicals (i.e., acetic, sulfuric, and sulfurous acids used in cleaners, solvents and bleaches); and (iii) increased protection from pitting and cracking. So, when comparing boats, make sure you inquire about the grade of stainless steel being used. It costs more to use 316 stainless steel, but the benefits are worth it.

Shipoke boats are rigged with marine-grade tinned copper wiring tied to waterproof switches with individual breakers. Wires are routed neatly to create more room in compartments and make it easy to add electrical options in the future, and to diagnose electronics failures should they occur. Critical junctions are tied together with water-resistant quick-connectors.
