28ft SJX Twin MEGA-JON
1,000 lbs more payload than a DC-3 (over 3 tons!) and it still runs in less than six inches of water!
You just havent experienced the shear excitment that come from running a boat of the size in just 6 inches of water! You got to check this out for yourself.
The SJX 2884 Twin Mega-Jon was created with one thing in mind, large cargo capacity. Numerous requests for a jet boat to carry much more cargo but still run shallow brought the Mega-Jon in to existence. The SJX 2884 has become the jet boat of choice in its class due to its cargo hauling abilites in shallow water, and its better in class pricing.
