Just wondering if anyone had any detailed opinions on this hawaiian built boats. I've been on a few but considering buyin one soon. How much would an 18ft go for brand new?

I am pretty sure that a new force 18 will run you between $38-45k without a trailer, and i think that they all come with i/o volvo penta motors.

The Glass pro was my second choice on the list. Both awesome boats. I don't think the 18 ft comes with I/O. Most i've seen are outboards. The 21-25 all have Volvo Penta Diesel. So, brand new 18 with motor is around 38?? Does it come with a hard top?

Not sure if there's anything about new boats here but you can take a look at this: http://www.hanapaa.com/bbforum/viewtopi ... c&start=60

These guys like theirs.

Hi. I have a Force 18 ft w/ hard top and outboard 4stroke. It's a great all around boat. Wider boat than the norm and has a shallow draft so you can get into shallows if needed. I think a skeleton 18 ft runs about 13,000. I forget how much the hard top costs. Then there's the motor and wiring and trailer, etc so the price can easily run upwards to 28,000+. anyway, if you have specific questions, PM me.
