Why would you buy an SJX instead of any of the pretenders in the Shallow Water Jet Boat Market?
The primary reason is: Do you want the original or a dim copy? We invented the inboard tunnel hull and are still years ahead of the imitators. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well…thanks for the compliment, but the imitators cannot match our pride and dedication to quality and performance. That dedication comes from our passion as boaters. I am not only the owner of the company but am also an avid boater. I know this boat from bow to stern. I know its capabilities and its limitations. I have spent well over a decade minimizing those limitations and expanding those capabilities.
Whether you are a hunter, a fisherman, or an adventurist, you could quite possibly drive your SJX boat to places where nobody else has ever been. Our boats simply go where no others can go. A plane might be able to fly over, but good luck landing in the wild.
Shallow water jet boats are a breed apart. When we introduced the first shallow water tunnel hull, we put the Mercury Sport Jet in it. All the imitators followed suit. We have upgraded to the Indmar EcoBoost and are the only EcoBoost-powered aluminum tunnel hull available so far. The imitators may soon try to follow again. But put any of their boats next to our SJX and the choice is a no-brainer. The quality of our boat builds just stand-alone compared to them. Anyone can put all kinds of bells and whistles on a boat, but that doesn’t make it float any better, doesn’t make it perform any better. The SJX is designed for strength-of-structure, performance, and functionality. The SJX is unrivaled in utility, recreational use, payloads, and fuel economy in extreme shallow water conditions.
Obviously, as a hunter, you want to get to those remote locations. You want to get to where the game is, and so long as you are in an SJX you can. It goes without saying that getting there is only half the journey. You're going to have extra payload and more weight from the game. You need to be able to take the game out. The SJX has no problem getting up the river to where you need to go and getting the game back out as that extra payload. It's designed for it.
An avid fisherman wants to reach the spots other fishermen can only dream about. From a recreational standpoint, the performance of an SJX is unmatched. You will be able to get to the places you couldn't get before. Get to where the fishing is better. Have a longer range of running on less fuel. When you consider the new Indmar 2.3-liter EcoBoost’s fuel economy you're looking at running between 4 and 5 gallons an hour. In other words, you leave all the other boats behind.
"I can honestly say that I have been into remote locations as a result of using the SJX that no human being has ever set foot on. On some of our trips in Alaska we have literally driven this boat up into the mountains. It's that amazing." A lot of times people who own an SJX find themselves to be alone on the river most of the year. There are times in spring when the water levels are higher that all the boats can get on the river. With an SJX you can get on that river all year long even in the low-water situations.
