SeaArk Jons ? Found a 1448 Opinions needed.

Post by y2k600f4 » 23 Jun 2012, 10:26

In my search for a decent Aluminum Jon boat I started my search on the longer Jons 16-18' but have been seriously considering a 14' wide.

Most are 0.70" thick or so and riveted but I came across a 1448 MV SeaArk (1999) which are rated for 30HP max, all welded and 0.100" thick

This one has been media blasted and repainted, new plywood floor. Trailer is an older 1975 that has been media blasted and powder coated.

Owner is the original owner of the 9.9HP merc 2 stroke (2003) that has been properly maintained. Battery and trolling motor.

Was looking for a larger motor and in a 4 stroke; but I can always upgrade I guess if it is feasible. Prefer a 3rd seat...this one has the open hull.

Anyway what are peoples thoughs on this boat ? Price etc Thanks,

48" wide boats are hard to find. A new 1448 would be around $1800, a new 9.9 around $2800 and a new trailer around $800. Sounds like a decent deal to me.
