Talking about a utility boat that’s decked, open, without a raised casting platform on the bow.

Duranautic, Crestliner ( some models). Both manufacturers are aluminum, and have welded seams ( very strong), not riveted. Duranautic may be listed as "Marathon Boat", used to be made in Marathon, NY ( just north of Binghamton, NY).

Both are great boats. Have owned multiple versions of each manufacturer. Duranautics are lighter.

I looked at the Crestliner webpage out of curiosity (since I own one) but didn't see anything without the raised front casting platform.

Interested more in a tiller setup. Save room for decoys, bushel baskets and such. 18’ Lund Alaskan or one of the Freedoms is all I can find.
