Just my opinion but I don't think I would by a Stratos boat. I used to own a 99 Javelin boat (same people made Stratos) when they stopped making Javelins it was hard to find parts for it. Stratos is a great boat and I don't have anything bad to say about them but since they have dropped the Stratos line now it will only be a matter of time before parts will become scarce.
If you are looking for a 18' family boat I would look at the Ranger 1880, 1860 or 1850 boats, the Lund GL or the Triton Allure models.
