This is a 1986 Biddison 1800. My dad had the boat custom built in 1986, the year I was born. I have been fishing on this boat since before I could walk and we are the original owners. It is a huge 18 foot boat and is built like a tank. The boat takes ruff chop well and rides better then most 21 footers. I re-powered the boat in 2010 with a 2004 Yamaha 150 HPDI oil injected 2 stroke. The engine had 110 hours when I bought it, I estimate it has around 700 hours now. I have had the engine serviced every season since I have owned it.
I ended up putting in a new helm/wheel and the sea star steering was rebuilt in 2013. The boat also has a custom leaning post which was built by Quality T Tops in 2011. Im out fishing on this boat almost every weekend. I fish inshore areas of Tampa Bay and regularly run 25 miles offshore. When it comes to a deep V center console fishing boat in the 18 foot range there is no other boat that can compete with this one. The engine has run flawless and I just had it completely serviced on 2/15/14 (records available).
