Project Description

JONES BROTHERS Cape Fisherman 18

The Cape Fisherman 18 is our entry level V-hull, and was designed to leave the protected bays to fish and explore near-shore waters.

The Cape Fisherman 18 boat can be self-launched and is easily towed even by a small SUV.

The Cape Fisherman 18 is very economical for a young family that likes to fish on the ocean-side of the barrier islands, and understands the safety and performance advantages of a V-hull center console over a bay boat.

100% Composite Construction – Jones Brothers Marine made a commitment in 2001 to convert to all composite construction. The first several years were spent doing numerous and intensive tests on different materials… not all composites are created equal. Our goal was to select materials with the very best strength, performance and long term durability. Over a three year period, stringer molds were conceived and engineered using computer aided design software. After the plugs and molds were constructed, the new manufacturing processes were tested and refined until the new boats exceeded our own expectations. By mid-2006, all Jones Brothers Boats were 100% composite and finally moving down the assembly line!

Factory Rigged Yamaha Outboards – Our boats are completely assembled at the factory and are delivered with the proven technology of factory installed, dependable Yamaha Outboards.

Lite Tackle and Fly Fishing Options – Along with the typical configuration options, specialty options are available for lite tackle and fly fishermen – rear casting decks, pull-up cleats and bow lite, livewells, rod tubes and rack systems, and poling platforms. You can select individual options or Lite Tackle Edition packages.
