SeaArk Boats has been known for building a high quality, tough, durable jon boat for years. Yes, we only use .100 and .125 gauge aluminum for our hulls. Yes, they are all welded with reinforced fasteners on decks and seats where areas of stress occur. Yes, we use extruded or oversized ribs on all models. And yes, we use heavy duty extrusions for keels and caprails! If that does not convince you that we make the best darn jon boat on the market, then take a look at the LONG list of options and accessories that you can add to create a boat that fits your specific purpose on the market. From fuel systems, consoles, cabins, and ATV ramps, to storage boxes, Gator-Hide® interior, Camo paint, flotation pods, ice runners, and livewells.
