By consigning the lounge seating and Bimini structure to the center of the boat, the VF18 leaves plenty of unobstructed casting room on the fore and aft corners. Swiveling fishing chairs occupy these corners — a fairly standard arrangement for fishing 'toons — but Voyager does a better-than-average job of giving anglers the tools they need. For example, the standard package includes rod racks port and starboard, a stern livewell and a built-in tackle center. The boat is also pre-wired for a second battery and trolling motor and can be ordered with vinyl flooring. And though it's a compact model, it rides on Voyager's proprietary foam-filled, U-shaped pontoons. This pontoon shape not only rides high when heavily loaded, but also provides a wide surface for attaching cross members, resulting in a rigid deck at rest and under way.
