180CC Adventure Packs Plenty of Punch in a Small Package
By Ted Lund
Looking for big things in small packages to help get your family out on the water this summer? Then you’ll definitely want to check out the 180CC Adventure from South Carolina-based boat builder, Tidewater Boats.
At 17-foot, 8-inches at the centerline and with a 7-foot, 9-inch beam, the
180CC Adventure feels much bigger — and drier — thanks to its Carolina flare and 7-foot, 9-inch beam.
Whether looking for a family-friendly boat for extended fishing weekends, cruising the coast or pulling water toys, experienced and novice boaters will want to take a close look at the 180CC Adventure. This diminutive member of the Tidewater family comes with features usually only found on larger boats like dual 20-gallon live wells, an insulated fish box, rod holders, gunwale rod rack storage and an open cockpit. All it needs to become the ultimate all-purpose boat is the optional ski bar — providing hours of family fun.
Just shy of 1,700 pounds without the motor, the 180CC Adventure is easily trailer able with most family vehicles. Rated for up to 115 horsepower, the 180CC Adventure is paired perfectly with the recommended 90-horsepower and standard 37-gallon fuel cell.
As with all Tidewater boats, the available options are endless. Owners can choose from a variety of console layouts and options, as well as custom covers and Bimini-style canvas offerings to offer relief from the hot summer sun and elements.
But one thing isn’t optional, and that’s Tidewater’s commitment to — and ultimate pride in — quality construction and manufacturing.
The Tidewater 180CC Adventure is available in seven colors: white, carbon (gray), sky blue, bimini blue, fusion blue, island green and black. Other standard options include a self-bailing deck and cockpit, automatic bilge pump, LED nav lights, aluminum backing plates for deck hardware, horn, hydraulic steering, as well as stainless steel hardware including thru-hull, rub rail, steering wheel and knob, hardware, flush-mount cleats and more.
Each member of the Tidewater family of boats features all-composite, no-wood construction with fiberglass stringers and a hand-laid fiberglass hull. Each boat is rigged to AYBC standards and is backed by a 10-year transferable hull warranty.
