16'-18' Jon Boat For Project

Recommended Posts

I fish a lot of electric lakes and my 14' leaky riveted boat isn't getting it done anymore. I want to buy a 16-18' Jon boat with a trailer and deck the front and back. What brand of jons with trailers are most affordable?

If buying used I would go for a grizzly. Although just about every company makes a similar boat and your location will probably dictate what can be easily found. Here Tracker's dominate the market since their so easy to find new. The Lowe roughneck is also nice. G3 makes the Eagle models, and alumacraft makes an all weld model. Those will all be pricey new. If you're looking for an electric only set up I would buy used. I own a tracker 1542 and it's an OK boat has plenty of room for 2 people and is pretty stable. It can be found cheaper used, but I paid $2,200 from Bass pro new with a trailer.

I have a g3 1548 I use for an electric only lake. The previous owner extended the front deck and covered the battery compartment

Have you looked into a glass boat 18-19' with a blown motor?

I have an older dodge caravan and don't want the weight of a glass boat. Plus, some of the ramps I fish are shallow and I have to push the boat off the trailer. But thanks for the idea!

I usually would have said CL, but was surprised to see very few options listed in our area. I had one right down the street for sale three weeks ago, that would have been perfect for you, guy only wanted 2K and it was relatively loaded. Good Luck.

After looking around, I think I've settled on a tracker grizzly 1648. In my budget and comes with a front deck, and it's welded. I'll have to put a back deck on it this winter. Should be a good project!

I know it's an old thread but....

 

Alweld owner, so a little biased.  Their LA models have a huge deck on the bow and the back can be easily converted.  Don't see many of them around, but we have one of the biggest dealers of them on the east coast in my area.
