The innovative new Frontier 1860 Tunnel Jet offers a weight-forward center console to keep the draft as shallow as possible. Coupled with the high 27” transom, you can slide through the shallow backwater with confidence and get right where the bass are biting. Like every Lowe Frontier, the 1860 Tunnel Jet features top-quality all-welded, all-aluminum construction for incredible durability and strength. Closely spaced cross-rib substructures and solid extruded center keel plus ultra-durable aluminum alloy decks and floors mean you can count on this jon boat for years of hard use.
