About Longreach

The Longreach 18 has been developed to provide great skiing and wakeboarding performance. The criteria are essentially to provide the right size ski boat to achieve smooth handling characteristics and easy manoeuvrability both on and off the water.

With easy car like handling and a deeper vee than the average 19 footer the Longreach will track straight at low speeds and carve well defined midsized wakes.

Add the stylish and strong Longreach high tower and some ballast or a heap of friends and your ready for some advance wakeboarding.

The removable stainless steel and hardwood Ski Platform sets the boat off and with the stainless handle/ski hook, access to the boat is easy and safe. The large rear boot is fully moulded with a gelcoat finish for ease of cleaning.

Wakeboarders find the rear boot perfect for ballast bags away from precious cockpit space and with the large ski locker in the bow, storage wont be a problem.

The high sides and roomy cockpit make for a safe, dry and comfortable boat. Seating is large and comfortable with a stylish two-tone vinyl. The drivers seat is adjustable with easy sliders that lift you up as you come forward, with a highscreen, arm rest, drink holder and the option of foot or hand throttle the driver wont want to get out of his seat.

Engine options are a 350 chev with our unique fully enclosed hydraulic soft clutch or a mercuiser with velvet drive. With either engine set up the hull shape allows the boat to lift up out of the hole with minimal bow lift and almost in an instant the boat is on the plane.

For skiing, wakeboarding or just family boating the Longreach will deliver and is hand built to last at a reasonable price.
