SaltMarsh jon hybrids and skiffs are built for the tough marsh environment where around the next bend could be the oyster bar, rocks or stumps; for either work or relaxation.  These tough boats feature kevlar laminates, the same stuff found in bullet-proof vests and our troops' helmets.  They're lightweight and extraordinarily strong and built to last.   Our smaller models fit into the back of a pickup truck and are easy to drag out to some remote fishing hole or duck pond.  Lightweight but safe as they exceed all government flotation and safety requirements.  From fishing to hunting to work, our salt marsh hybrids will open up new possibilities.  Check our extensive options and let us put together just what you want!

 

 

What Does Hybrid Mean

The goal from the beginning was to develop a “boat” that would offer the sheer toughness  and utility of a welded aluminum jon boat and the sophistication of a shallow water skiff with its quiet, smooth ride in a chop; nice molded top deck with easy to clean non-skid.  

Put your SaltMarsh Hybrid in at the boat ramp next to a big dollar glass bass boat and smile knowing you paid  a jon boat price.   We’re just trying to build the best of both worlds..and we will continue to evolve this idea with feedback from you, our customers.

 

Concept

The SaltMarsh concept is based on using kevlar laminates in high strength and tough resin.  Recent resin research has allowed us to push the performance/cost envelope.

Of course kevlar fabric is the standard  in armor vests and troop protection.  In combination with the new resins, the kevlar makes for one tough boat!

 

Commercial & Emergency Ops

Lightest boat in its class for easy field deployment.  We can supply additional backing plates during the build per your specifications for securely mounting any specialized equipment.  Call and we’ll have our engineer work  with your team  to meet your requirements.
