Dose anyone have an 18 Ft. Gheenoe ? If so how do they handle and are they much better than the 25 . How much power can you put on them ? Any one have one for sale ?

I think I saw one in a video with a 90 on it. There is one for sale with a 70 Yamaha on it on boat trader.

I love the smaller gheenoes but the 18 doesn’t do it for me. And definitely not for 29k.

I like the small "Simple" ones When you pile on mods and rigging
you are defeating the purpose !!!

If it looks like you will end up over 5K+ look further !
lots of options start popping up .

But a simple Classic or LT (Tiller) Is awesome for Near shore and calm
waters
my absolute favorite is the 13 footer with an 8 horse 2 stroke when
the river is low ...

I’m not a fan of them piled high with crap either. A lot of them look like someone got to play supermarket sweep in Bass Pro Shops.

I want an NMZ with a false floor and front and rear decks. A 15hp Yamaha and a push pole.

Yup, that's a lot of $$$$ for a Gheenoe ,But I like the room ,I think I will get a new Tohatsu 20 hp. and put it on my 15/6 for now ,that's fast enough . Thanks ,Dan.

Yeah. That seems like a good idea. You could get a Heron for less than the 18’ gheenoe.
