Challenger 2280

Complete Boat with a 6.2L MPI Mercrusier Marine Engine

Just a few years ago, LEWIS unveiled a powerful new concept in wakeboard boat design and a tough new set of benchmarks for the industry. Conceived as nothing less than a design of perfection on water, the Challenger combined stunning performance with an aversion for compromise to become one of the most desirable boats in Australia, a status it continues to enjoy to this day. Today’s Challenger is a masterpiece of design and proof of just how powerful and uncompromising the LEWIS concept can be.

It’s not just the perfect wake boat, but enormously practical as well.

Performance…by having the engine at the rear of the boat due to the v-drive configuration the result is a much greater weight placed over the transom (an extra 350+kilos) this assists the hull design in creating a much rampier wake.

Even with no ballast at all, the boat alone holds a decent size wake for beginners through to intermediates with slow speed wakes, which are sloped and large.

If you’re serious about boarding, LEWIS will install an optional Wake Challenger Pack.

The Wake Challenger Pack comes complete with a stylish Wake tower to help launch you for some great air. You can opt for lights, speakers and board racks to pimp up your tower.

Also included in the wake Challenger Pack is the ballast system, where there are 300lt fiberglass ballast tanks each side of the engine.

Safety…For even greater safety, a v-drive is still an inboard with a shaft and rudder.

A major advantage of this v-drive design is there is a significantly lower risk of swimmers and riders hurting themselves on the propeller, as opposed to stern drives of outboards.

Interior…Step inside and you’ll discover a driver’s helm that’s elegantly sculpted around you, the driver. All instruments and controls are within easy reach, arranged by importance and frequency of use. As well as making for a more delightful driving experience this driver’s helm has been designed for maximum occupant comfort.

The Challenger 2280 is LEWIS’ largest wakeboard boat. Adored by many the Challenger is the preferred model of the LEWIS Pro Riders.
