Utility & Value

See all pictures

Since 1972 Lowe Jons have been providing anglers and hunters with durable and reliable waterborne vessels and the L 1648M Big Jon is a prime example of the brand’s quality and value.

The 1648M is a bare bones Jon Boat that rocks shallow waterways like rivers and coves for getting into the right fishing holes with your rod or fishing bow.

As a pretty spartan Jon Boat model, it’s lightweight and easy to lift up onto a trailer.

Featuring only the best materials like marine-grade 5052-H34 aluminum alloy and acrylic olive drab paint, the L 1648M is ready to take on the elements.

This model boasts a flat-bottom modified V-hull for best stability, a tall transom (20”) for improved utility, as well as wide bench seats enough to fit four people comfortably.

One great thing about this boat is how much it invites adding your own hacks. In truth, you’ll need to start with some kind of mat or rubberized flooring, because it does get slippery when wet.
