JR-Boats Oy produces and sells versatile electric and motorboats from its head office in Kokkola. The boats are already available everywhere in Finland and in the future we plan to enter the international market.
The Wide boat product family contains catamaran boats with three different accessory packages. On this page you can find the technical details of the boats. Here you can access more information about the history of the company.
The design of the catamaran, or the two-hulled boat, has been proven to be the most economically efficient. The boats are manufactured from weather resistant and durable glass fibre. The structure of the boat consists of the hull (bottom) and the deck, which are glued and stapled together. A hollow space is left in between, which makes the boat unsinkable, even when it's fully loaded. The boat is self-draining, so you can forget about the hand bailer.
The boat fulfills all the CE / C criteria, so it is suitable both form inner and coastal waters. The back seats of the boat are modular and equipped with water-proof cover, so you can customize the quantity and the disposition of the seats. Without the seats the boat has a ca. 6,3 m² floor area.
The special feature of this boat is the possibility to use it in winter as an ice fishing hut and/or sledge. If you choose so, the boat can be provided with two (2) round 235 mm holes on the bottom. The holes serve as ice fishing holes in winter and as the space for the electric engine in summer. The holes can also be covered with hatches.
In the winter-equipped boat there are wide nylon keel strips on the bottom of the pontoons, so the bottom is durable and slides easily on ice. After adding the drawbars for the snowmobile and the ice fishing tent, you will have an ice fishing hut that protects you from wind, rain and cold. The hut can be provided with lighting, heating and it even allows you to brew coffee thanks to the highly durable AGM battery system.
The electric boat comes integrated with an electric outboard motor, the battery system, sun panels, a charge controller and an earth current charger. The electric outboard motor is positioned in the boat in such way, that it is more comfortable to maneuvre than in rear position.
Wide-M console boat moves steadily, swiftly and without bounces even in case of considerable waves thanks to the steel keel pontoons and well-designed strips.
