The Phowler Basic Light Jon Boat was developed specifically by both customer and motor manufacturer’s demands. The Basic Light is designed to carry a load with smaller surface drive outboards (12-27 hp), small long-tail motors, or small outboards. The Basic Light Jon is tough, built out of one solid sheet of .100 thick aluminum. But unlike other builders who use 5052 grade (softer) aluminum in their .100 hulls, Phowler uses only 5086 grade aluminum, producing a light, yet very durable hull. The Original Phowler Basic Light is a 40” bottom hull available in 14-18’ lengths. Basic Light hulls are ideal for timber running and heavy brush; areas where a smaller/lighter hull is needed. The Basic Light Model is also ideal for customers on a budget. Matched with just an 18hp surface drive motor or 15hp Suzuki outboard, a 16-1740 will run 17-20 mph with a 600-800 lb. load in deep open water. 

NEW FOR 2015 – Phowler Basic Light Jon Boats in 44” and 50” bottom widths with 22” deep sides!!!!!!!

As with many of our new designs, Phowler listened to our customers who want the benefits of our lighter jons, but still wanted the feel and gear carrying room of our larger Extreme hulls. Not everyone needs at .125 thick hull, for many sportsmen a tough .100 hull will handle all the impacts they might encounter. In response Phowler has added two new sizes to our Basic Light Jon line-up for 2015, the 44” and 50” Light Jons.  These hulls are one piece 5086 grade aluminum with higher standard sides (22”).  These new Light Jons have all the same features of our 40” hulls, but they can be powered by either the lighter 23hp Copperhead surface drives or the larger 36 hp class Pro-Drives or any other large surface drive, long-tail or outboard.  These boats are lighter than their Phowler Extreme .125 hull stable mates, offering an alternative for sportsmen who need to minimize weight and draft without compromising strength, durability and performance.

As with all our Phowler boats, you can customize your Basic Light Jon with any of our standard accessories, custom accessories, or blind designs.
