The 185 Explorer is big on value, built with the no nonsense fisherman in mind. It is extra wide, deep, and made to tame big water. An excellent fishing boat.
Thunder Jet manufactures its own hull components using the latest in computer controlled cutting and forming equipment. This ensures precision, quality, and the best performance possible.We only employ top craftsmen; in fact our welding team alone has over 300 years of combined experience!
Thunder Jet uses one piece hull side and a one piece bottom construction for most of our boats. The sides are formed and double welded to the bottom producing a super strong triangular structural member from the tip of the bow stem all the way to the stern; thus creating a uniquely engineered performance enhancing full length reverse chine unlike any other in the industry, with no corrosion traps, and with extrusion free joinery improving overall strength.
Every hull has full length engineered box stringers that are computer formed for a perfect fit, compound angle box shape for strength, welded to the hull from bow to transom, and full depth for added deck strength and reduced weight. Thunder Jet hull sides have full length formed in hull stiffeners that are computer formed at 485 tons pressure for strength and accuracy.
Our rails are custom fit and welded to every hull for improved strength and corrosion resistance as compared to bolt on railings. Hull drains are welded into our hulls for quality, strength and corrosion free construction. Most builders use plastic thru-hulls and drains that are susceptible to breakage. Our cleats are all welded for quality and strength. Thunder Jet continuously welds heavy duty keel guards on every hull for impact resistance. No skip welds and no corrosion crevices here.
Thunder Jet backs up our promise of quality with a lifetime transferable hull warranty.
