The JVX evolution is here! Introducing the Carolina Skiff JLS – a newly engineered liner hull series that combines all the sought-after features and design elements of the popular JVX line with superior strength, rigidity and an enhanced fit and finish.
Choose from three different JLS models – the 192, 178 and 162. The JLS is a modified V-hull center console with a liner deck, which provides a smoother and more comfortable dry ride for everyone onboard. Unlike the JVX Series, which had the front and stern decks attached as separate components, the decks on the JLS are completely molded-in, including the deck compartments.
The JLS also features Carolina Skiff’s new self-bailing deck design, which uses gravity to pull water on the deck toward the stern of the boat to automatically drain overboard. On top of that, the JLS Series comes with a 10-year hull warranty! Read about the new 10-year hull warranty here.
Like the JVX, the new JLS Series is loaded from bow to stern with many standard features – providing anglers and families with the greatest value for money when looking for the best boat to navigate bays, creeks, rivers and beyond.
Starting at the bow, the JLS has two molded-in boxes that automatically drain overboard, a 12-volt trolling motor plug with a harness, and a super comfortable and removable swivel fishing seat.
Both the 192 and 178 JLS come with a stainless-steel cooler frame seat with a 70-quart removable cooler. The 162 JLS comes with an upholstered stainless-steel helm seat. The JLS console also includes six flush-mount rod holders, a stainless steel adjustable tilt helm steering wheel, full instrumentation and our convenient quick-disconnect windshield.
The stern of the JLS has a built-in 18-gallon bait well, a swim platform with a 3-step ladder, and a second removable swivel fishing seat!
Other standard features throughout the JLS Series include, but are not limited to, bow and stern LED navigation lights, port and starboard Velcro rod savers, and a 25-gallon fuel tank.
Key additional options include hull color upgrades, 12/24-volt trolling motor panel with tilt, AM/FM Bluetooth Radio with USB, iPod and AUX plugs, Maxi-Flow Recirculation System, and a Bimini top, to name just a few.
