Curious as to what people think of them. You don't see them mentioned on here too often.

I tried to buy one a couple of years back when they came out with the new model. I couldn't find a dealer near me that wanted to deal. Not very many dealers. I bought another Phoenix for a lot less.

The 797 or whatever the model is, is a nice boat.

Their dealer network is growing substantially with 2 new boat models in the last 2 years splashed from the Champion line. There are at least 3 dealers now in Texas. The one mentioned above and 1 in Corsicana and 1 in Beaumont. I've had 2 Chargers - 1998-19.5' (195) and currently a 2014-496 (20.5'). The company has great customer service and builds a high quality boat with a very high customer loyalty and retention. Here is a picture of my 496

I thought I was going to be buying one of their new 198 rigs coming out soon, until I saw the price.

I bought a 2014 181 a couple months ago. It's awesome. I would love to have gotten a bigger boat but that's all that would fit in my boat house.

They've always been a good solid boat, but IMHO the old Chargers had that funky bow-down look that kept a lot of buyers away. Can tell from Barbarian's 496 above that the new models (Champion) look much better. Good looking boat.

Great riding boats. One of the top In the rough stuff for sure.

Been running Chargers since 1993, have had a 195, 396 and now I have a 596. Great rough water and dry boat, I wouldn't own anything else. The 396 had a different hull, it was more of a speed boat, not as smooth riding. Here is a pic of my 2013 596

I am pretty sure J&J quit selling Chargers a few years back. I am not sure why I thinking they struggled getting people around fork to buy them.

J&J may have quit a little soon I think the 210 at a good price would have sold around fork.

That 496 & 596 are both pretty dang sharp! We don’t see many Chargers down here, mostly Skeeters.

I've always liked the Charger line since the first time I saw one way back when at Jordan Marine
