16 ft jon boats for sale

Since the late 19th century, 16 ft. flat bottom Jon boats have been plowing water currents. These vessels have been found useful for float fishing, timber transportation, and duck hunting. Travelers and visiting tourists liked the opportunity to use flat bottom boats, as they could fish while standing and were not afraid of capsizing.




Now with such ideas, 16 ft Jon boats are actively being acquired, since they are able to work on very shallow water and, thus, are often used in rocky rivers and areas with flooded obstacles, such as oyster corals and bars, which is most important not alone, but with passengers on board due to the acceptable length, depth and breadth of the vessel.

How to choose 16 ft Jon boats 

The selection of a boat for hunting and fishing is a responsible task to cope with waves on large lakes and in the ocean or to go for a walk on the waves (there are plenty of Jon boats for sale here) To make the right choice, you should adhere to the following points:

You need to understand if you need this particular model

  • These versatile vessels come in two basic types:
  1. The V-hull of the Jon boat 16 ft will provide maximum stability and safety on waterways, shallow draft to hunt successfully.
  2. A flat bottom Jon boat is ideal for calm shallow inland waterways.
  • All Jon boats 16 ft can accommodate up to 5 passengers.
  • Due to the optimal size for any kind of inland water sports, for a comfortable and safe hunt, it is preferable to use a 16 ft Jon boat.

 

Check out the main components of the boat

  • Opportunity to get free up more space on the deck in the boat with closed storage.
  • The material of Jon boat is aluminum because the metal is light and has more stability.  If the hull of the aluminum vessel contains special chambers, the vessel shall not go to the bottom, even in the event of significant flooding.
  • There is a hard bottom with that you can not be afraid of accidental hits on stones.
  • Lightweight, which saves on fuel for the engine.

Do not forget to make sure that there are additional boat components

  • Ideally, you should buy a boat that comes with a trailer as a deal or purchase one from a dealer who will give you a discount on a dual purchase of boat and trailer together.
  • The Jon boat will never have an internal motor, be sure to include in your budget the cost of the outboard motor and any storage units that you may need. An outboard trolling motor is the best choice for a Jon boat.
  • Think about what you will be doing while onboard the boat and consider just how much space you really need to store it on land.

 

About 16 ft Jon boats

Jon boat is a type of boat characterized by a flat bottom and, as a result, a blunt nose. Typically, such boats have a length of 2.5 meters to 7 meters and a width of 80 centimeters to one and a half meters. The most common material for building flat-bottomed boats is aluminum. Jon boats are also made of fiberglass and less often of wood. The seats are wide banks from side to side, in which emergency buoyancy units are located, less often separate seats are installed. Banks in these types of boats can also serve as luggage compartments. Jon boat type usually has transoms on which installation of outboard boat motors is possible.

The flat bottom of the Jon boat enhances its stability compared to boats with a keeled, V-shaped bottom. Besides, the great advantage of such boats is their low draft, which allows them to be used in small rivers. Reinforced bottom Jon boats are designed to walk on overgrown and polluted rivers with little chance of getting a hole. Such boats are often equipped with water-jet engines. Some models of such boats are capable of overcoming river rifts and small sections of land using the inertia obtained during acceleration through the water.

The popular 16 ft Jon boat, 14 ft, and 12 ft Jon boats are famous for their basic features:

  • Welded-in, foam-filled interior side walls for quieter ride & structural strength.
  • Flat bottom and inclined, with a large camber outward, side. The relatively narrow bottom is an advantage when rowing on oars or gliding under the outboard motor, and the collapse of the sides prevents the rollover from tipping over and reflects downwards.
  • Suitable for rowing or swimming with a low-power motor.
  • All-welded Mod V hull for great handling & a smoother, drier ride
  • Lockable, top-loading bow deck storage compartment.
  • Designed for operation on small rivers and lakes, in water areas protected from wind and waves.

The most budgetary of the three options is 12 ft. The advantage is that, due to it is compactness, you can not use a motor, but paddling is enough. The boat can accommodate up to two people. 16 ft and 14 ft Jon boats are almost identical. The size, price, capacity of people, the necessity of using the motor, and many other parameters are 1.5 times higher than 12 ft Jon boat.
