I am from the world of fiberglass bass boats that feel slow at 70 mph. I recently purchased a new 1860 DLX ccj with a Yamaha 90 jet thinking my days of excitement, much like the days of my youth, were in the rearview mirror of life. Boy was I wrong! Having a rig that will run upstream in extremely skinny water at 30+ mph is AWESOME! No, I can't run down the lake at 70 plus anymore but in retrospect I have never boated the first fish going that fast anyway. I can fish all day on 4 gallons of fuel now in waters I could only access by canoe and wading previously. I am getting to meet a whole new world of smallmouth and trout that have never heard the sound of an outboard before. I thought I would also quickly grow tired of all the leers and comments about my motor missing the lower unit. I instead love it because I know all my buddies are jealous I am setting the hook on fish they can't get to. Glass doesn't like rocks! Ha Ha

Hello my name is Jed and I am an avid fisherman on the lakes of eastern Tennessee. I have recently purchased my first bass boat, a G3 Eagle 170, and I have to say that I was surprised at the fishability of this 17 foot boat. It's a great starter boat for young anglers such as myself and pulls easy behind a mid size truck. I think the staff at G3 is doing a wonderful job making the best aluminum boats on the lake. Keep up the good work.

Two things:

First, I just purchased a Talon 17 DLX and I could not be more pleased. I fish quite a few local tournaments on the Mississippi River and I cannot wait for the tournament season to start. The 17 DX is a well designed and well constructed boat. The 90 hp Yamaha motor has been fun to break in and runs great. The storage is perfect and the live well is huge. The red wrap also looks great with my red truck. The fit and finish on the whole boat is superb.

Second, the dealer that I purchased the boat from has been as good as the boat. Bitler Marine in Albany, Illinois has a very knowledgeable and accommodating crew and were very patient and understanding with me while they installed the additional equipment that I wanted. Tom Bitler is a great guy to deal with too. The only issue that I had (depth finder) was taken care of on the spot and to my complete satisfaction. He and his crew take good care of their customers.

You make a great product and you have some fine people selling and working on your boats. I just thought you should know.

Bass fishermen can be a pretty demanding customer base. This one is pretty happy with his new "retirement" boat. See you on the water!

I just bought a 1656 CCJ for use on the shallow Androscoggin River in Bethel, Maine.

I've only had it out twice but it is clearly capable of running circles around my previous jet boat. I'm very pleased with my decision to buy a G3.

My wife and I are the very proud owners of a G3 V143 Outfitter. I want to attach an anchor pole bracket to the transom. Would you please email to me the angle of the transom?

My wife and I have owned boats for most of our marriage - from a small aluminum boat with a 9 hp motor to a 23 foot cuddy-cabin. Our last boat was a 21 foot Praline. While we have enjoyed all of our boats, I can honestly say that our G3 V143 Outfitter is by far our favorite. We have it outfitted with a side console and use it to fish the shallow flats along the gulf coast of Texas for Trout, Redfish and Flounder. It is a wonderful boat.

Also, our dealer, Rick Kresta at Kresta Marine went out of his way to accommodate us. I am past 70 and have dealt with many boat dealers in Florida and Texas, and Rick stands at the top.

Thank you for a great boat and for your help.

I purchased an Eagle 175PF in 2006, my first boat, and have been extremely pleased with it. I fish the Atchalafaya Swamp and surrounding area where there is a mix of shallow and deep water with large amounts of Water Hyacynth - most aggravating - but not the boat. It has performed over and above my expectations. I purchased the boat with the Yamaha 50TLR and was somewhat anxious I hadn't enough horsepower. Well, I needn't have worried. It's gets on plane and runs 30-33mph if needed. Easy on gas too. I've gone places others would fear to tread. I added a few "gotta have accessories" and raised the rear fishing area to add more storage which worked out fine. Gulf Coast Boats in Lafayette were great and have serviced the boat every spring with no problems. I have been more than pleased with the G3 Eagle PF. Lots of compliments from others and have caught some great fish as well. But even if I hadn't, I always have a great boat ride. Thanks G3!

My wife and I purchased a new 2010 LX22FC with a Yamaha 115 HP motor. The boat has been fantastic. The layout is a little cramped in the back two chair area and between the table and captains chair, but overall the boat has been a really good product. We have the vinyl floor as we noticed a lot of used carpeted boats with stains from pop, mud, fish poop, etc.With the vinyl you can take a brush and hose or a power washer to make the floor look like new in seconds. The motor is very quiet and goes slow enough to troll fish at ease, and pulls tubes and skiers easily. The main reason I'm writing though is to acknowledge our boat dealer Paradise Cove Marina. They are located on Fort Gibson lake within Sequoya State Park in Hulbert, OK. We bought a new boat but did not buy a trailer as we bought a lift and have the marina service the boat, lift, and all our other needs. This is a family run marina and everyone is very good to deal with. They have met all our needs and they go "all out" to please their customers. If you're anywhere near their marina, this would be one of the best places to buy and keep your boat. Call 918-772-7230 and talk to Ann. It will be very good choice.

I bought my G3 boat in 2005. Before that I hunted and fished out of Lowe v-bottom boats. I waited this long to write my review because I had used the v-bottom boats for over 20 years and thought that they were the best boats for the type of hunting and fishing that I do. I was wrong, and feel like I wasted 20 years of safety, stability, and comfort. I bought my G3 Jon 1652 from Reynolds Marine in Lyme, CT and it is by far the best boat I've ever owned.

Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for an awesome boat. I purchased my 2007 1860  DLX Center Console G3 boat with a 75 hp Yamaha four stroke as a used boat in April of 2010. I have absolutely loved this boat and sing its praises to anyone who will listen. Anyway, I had two exceptional days fishing with my kids and a friend this week catching 370 crappie with probably 130+ of them being over the 10" minimum for "keeper" status. My G3 is an absolute dream to fish out of and its layout makes me much more successful in my fishing adventures. I fish for catfish, stripers, and crappie mostly out of my G3 and love being on the water. I have it set up for trolling for stripers with a "trolling bar on the back, and downriggers as well. I also have multiple driftmaster rod holders spread around the boat. I have many fishing pictures I could share of me, family and friends in my boat, but just wanted to share this post from a local fishing website thinking you would enjoy the last picture as it showcases family, friends, success, G3, and Yamaha. Thanks again for a wonderful product, I look foward to many more years of enjoyment in my G3.

I picked up the 167 side console from Hanafin Marine in August 2010. Got to use it a few times on Lake Onterio and Oneida lake. Both lakes are pretty large; Onterio being like an ocean and I was very impressed. The quality and ride were great. Even my wife thought so in some rough water on the big lake. This is my first aluminum boat and it was a choice I am glad i made and it was not the competitors I picked. I can't wait till spring to take it striped bass fishing down off New Jersey. Guys keep up the good work.

I have owned a G3 jon boat for 10 years. I live in MS, but fish in the LA marsh, have camp there. I cannot said enough good things about my 1860 jon boat. You should put me on a G3 promotion. It is and has been a great boat. I have a 90 on it and can basically go anywhere in the marsh.

I go places and catch fish where nobody else can go. It is getting a little old now, like me, and I am thinking about purchasing a new one.

My Wife and I just watched the CD I requested from your web site - Factory Tour - and really enjoyed it. Nice seeing folks working to make a good product. As a two time V170T owner I can attest to your service as well as your product as well as the dealer's service where I purchased the boat. These are two of the most important considerations when I purchase a boat & outboard.

But(!) - My boat has the Mossy Oak camo paint job and I see you are no longer offering that.(on the V170) If I had a nickle for every compliment I've gotten on that paint job I could buy you folks out (well, that's a bit of an exaggeration).

Thanks and keep up the good work - I've got to buy one more boat before I retire...

Everyone that lives on my end of the lake knows who I am when spotting my family and I cruising around. The 4 stroke Yamaha 90hp is so quiet that sometimes I forget that it is actually running. I've owned several boats in my lifetime, but the G3 is as good as they get! When and "IF" I ever wear this one out, I'll definitely purchase another G3.

Fishing numerous big lakes, (Winnebago, Michigan, St. Clair, Erie, etc...) I needed a large trailerable Walleye boat. The 210 Advantage met the criteria. Matched with the Bear dual axle trailer, I felt this boat/trailer was the right match. After 1 season, (08) I'm satisfied the boat has all the room and fishing amenities I could ever ask for. The ride in chop greater than 2' is rather hard and the spray is a bit more than I like, (it should come with a windshield mount soft top / bimini). This is a well built boat and should withstand the tough conditions I'll put it through.

In December of 07 I purchased a HP 180 with the 150 four stroke. In the past making long runs or extended camping trips made managing fuel a problem. The four stroke combined with the large fuel tank have eliminated that problem. The fit and finish on the boat is second to none. I purchased the boat at Sutter Marine in Yuba City California and they were great to deal with. Be prepared to spend a little extra time at the launch ramp, generally someone will want to look at the boat and ask questions.

In July of this year we purchased a new 2006 V170 G3 boat. The team at Tri-County Sports in Marinette Wisconsin are the true example of top shelf sales & customer service.

After going through the safety and operating instructions and reviewing all of the components in the boat and then finally the test on the river the boat handled perfectly and very responsive.

After several fishing trips this summer getting use to the boat it was tested in the areas largest Muskie Tournment this fall. My best friend never seen it until the tournment and was totally impressed with the standard options and with the Yamaha F90 4-stroke motor it had all a person could ask for. It was a joy to operate and in trying water conditions was a smooth operating boat.

My opinion is this will probably be the only boat I will own because of the quality, workmanship, and the options this boat is loaded with.

Dear G3, i recently purchaced a SunCatcher 18' Fish pontoon. I ordered it through Minnawaska Marine in Starbuck, MN.

I am in a wheelchair and was concered about room to move around in the pontoon but when I went in it there is plenty of room. I searched the web for about four monthes to come up with a quality pontoon and the "SunCatcher" was by far the best. Love the 75 h.P. Yamaha motor. The idea of having the 23 gal. built-in gas tank and two live wells is superb. No more smelly ,gasy hands every time I need to fill up. There are so many pontoon manufactures in the U.S. and abroad but none rivals the G3 SunCatcher. I live in an area of the state that has hundreds of lakes and can't wait to start showing off my G3.

After a great deal of research I decided on the V185F, and I will say it was a wise decision. It has a great deal of storage, which is lacking in many of the other aluminum boat lines, and the layout was well thought out. It is a dry ride, and even with all the gear I haul around, it jumps right up on plane (quicker than any bass boat I have owned). And to top it off, the price was more competetive than some of the other more well known names. I have no reservation recommending the G3 to anyone looking for a quality outfit. I would be remiss if I didn't throw in a good word for Joe Wolf at Installation Plus, Creston, Iowa. He does not have your typical salesperson mentality. He is fair and honest, and his service after the sale is second to none.

Dear G3,

I purchased your Eagle 185 this last fall, with the Yamaha 115. My previous boat was a 17.5' fiberglass bass boat with a 150 engine (non-yamaha). Not only am I impressed with the quality and performance of the boat, I am very impressed with the gas mileage of the engine. This boat runs exactly the same speed as my previous boat (54mph). However, it gets twice the gas mileage! The layout and deck space on this craft provide outstanding fishability. I must say that I am impressed. Thanks for the great product.

Dear Sirs,

I recently purchased a G3 1444vbw on 14 Jan 06. I was looking for a small welded Jon boat to enjoy fishing in Northern Virginia during my now military retired status. As soon as I read the specifications on your web site I knew this is the boat I wanted. The only problem is I could not find one in my area. I contacted the closest dealer with one in stock. The dealer was Bay Watersports in Grasonville Maryland. An almost 2 hour drive away. After meeting Mr. Louis Alcamo at the dealership it was a trip well worth the effort. His pleasant demeanor and knowledge was a joy. So much that I enjoyed my time speaking to him more than looking at the boat, which I bought on first sight. He and the dealership are a credit to your program. It is with great pride I now own one of your products. With even greater pride I had such a good experience purchasing it.

Sincerely,

I would like to let you guys know that I bought my G3 Eagle 165 in May of this year and it has been the perfect boat for me. Its just the right size for anyone who fishes alone, because of its easy management both on and off the water, and when a friend comes with me space is not a issue. I would also like to say that when anyone who ask me about my G3 I have absolutly no problem endorsing your product or the yamaha 4 stroke that came on it. You have gained a loyal customer.

Dear G3,

Thank you for the reimbursement for my 2005 fishing license. I purchased my new G3 at Jack's Harbor Marine in Hannibal, MO just about a month ago. I had purchased a Lowe 1860 Roughneck earlier this year but totaled it after striking a stump at Mark Twain Lake. Although I was bummed about that, it worked out great in the end. I absolutely feel my G3 is twice the boat as the Lowe. Although it is just a jon boat, I always get compliments when I pull up at my local beach on the Mississippi River. Thank you and keep up the good work!

I recently purchased the Eagle 175 with a Yamaha 90HP motor on it, and it is Great! The motor starts extremely quick and gives the boat a smooth ride. The design of the boat is excellent especially with a built in cooler!! Maneuvering around in swampy areas where fish are known to be find is no problem with the 175. Perfect boat for people that just want to get out on the water and fish, fish,fish! It is truly worth it all!

My wife and I bought a Sun Catcher LX 20c on the 4th of July this year. I am very impressed with the construction of the boat and even got comments from other people that said the same thing after looking at it. We got the 60 hp 4 cycle fuel injected engine. After being on the water all day we use about 7-8 gal. of gas. that makes it nice at the pump these days. We really like the trailer and ladder to get up to the boat. My 78 year old aunt was able to get on very easy. My wife (Linda) has never driven a boat before but has been the one to launch the boat and pull it back on the trailer by herself even one night at 9:45 pm.

I also want to say that the dealer, Jack's Harbor Marine in Hannibal, Mo was very helpfull by asking us questions about what we wanted to do with a boat and helping us decide what boat would be best for our needs.

Keep up the good work. I will proudly show off my new boat to others.

I just purchased the 1548 and wanted to let you know that I am very pleased with my decision. I fish electric only lakes here in Georgia. B&B Marine in Conyers was very helpful in my selection process. Your boat is sturdy and well built. The most stable jon I have ever been in. It draws very little water and I put in the lake in a a remote location, and it is a snap. I have an 82 pound 24 volt on the back and a 42 pound 12 volt on the front. Once I put this boat in the water I fell in love with. It's like fishing in a high dollar bass boat and I couldn't be happier. Thank you for a fine product.

We recently bought the Sun Catcher 22c with a Yamaha four stroke 115 h.p. Motor. We added the enclosure which makes the boat like a pop up camper. We have been out cruising several times and have found the motor very quiet and the gas mileage outstanding. We researched pontoons for 8 months and are very glad we selected the Sun Catcher 22C. The Sun Catcher is the best built, most comfortable and best looking Pontoon of all offered. The boat cover is a nice added part of the purchase. We just took off the enclosure and used the cover over the whole boat. Tauna and I have found a way to escape thanks to Sun Catcher. We have never had so much fun. Thanks for the fishing license and the great Boat. We are always excited to head to the lake to get on our Sun Catcher .

I just purchased a G3 HP170 from Paul Gonnelli at Ozona Shores Marine Center in Palm Harbor, FL. Prior to purchasing this boat, I compared it to the Bass Tracker and found the G3 to be superior.

The experience and helpfulness of Paul and his staff was outstanding as well. I would recommend this product and dealer to anyone looking for the best boat on the market!

April 09,2005 I just purchased from Marine Sports West in Loveland, Colorado,the G3 V185F coupled with a Yamaha 150 four Stroke and T-8 kicker. This is not my first muti-species boat, as I have owned several models of Walleye boats from the top named boat manufacturer in the industry. I can't tell you how pleased I am with the G3. It is one solid and well thought out design. It has more storage than I've seen in any other boat. It takes on the rough water with ease and gives me a dry ride. I was also very pleased with the quick response from Mark Morque, Tech support Engineer for G3 for replying to my questions prior to purchase. I can honestly say this boat truely gives you more bang for your buck.

Dear G3 Boats,

My wife and I puchased our 1860 Tunnel Jon center console around Christmas 2003 from Stewart Marine in Sanford, Florida. Let me tell all that this boat can go where most can't in the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River system of saltwater flats and estuaries. I have run on plane in 3 to 4 inches of water and gotten out of places starting in 8 inches all without tearing up bottom. The sponsons and jack plate with a 90 Yamaha and Powertech 4 blade make it happen when it needs to happen and the boat rides well and feels solid even in a chop. The good people at Stewart Marine prepped the boat perfectly and provide excellent service backed by G3.

Thanks

Just a quick note to let you know how pleased my wife and I have been with our recent purchase of a new G3 LX322C tritoon. We could not be happier with the boat and the motor combination (150 Yamaha 4-Stroke). The combination of power and performance allows us to pull skiers, and tubers with ease, while still being able to enjoy a nice cruise at a comfortable speed.

While my wife and I enjoy the boat, we also could not say enough about Rod Morton and his staff at Morton Marine in Owasso, OK. They are knowledgable, friendly, professional, and made the buying experience a breeze. Not only did they take the time to answer all of our questions, but they are also very responsive to all our our requests.

There is no doubt that we will recommend G3 boats to all who will listen, but we will also let them know that as far as we are concerned there is only one place to buy a boat....Morton Marine in Owasso, OK

It is my understanding that the G3 boats are the 3rd generation of aluminum boats from the original Appleby boats. My family including my brothers and cousins grew up fishing out of my grandfathers Appleby, which he bought new and we still have. I recently began to redo some things on this boat and noticed the serial number tag was still attached. After cleaning and looking at it I noticed that it was the 114th boat built by Appleby. 43 years of service and it is still being used on a private bass lake. I will say though, my brothers and I decided to upgrade. We have ordered a new G3 1860 tunnel hull to use in saltwater. No doubt that this boat will outlast all of us and we hope that our grandkids can one day pass this boat to their own children. What a great quality boat! Keep up the superior workmanship.

It is easy to tow, easy to launch and reload, and runs fast and dry. I can get into shallow water that the fiberglass bass boats can't even think about, yet the boat handles choppy water with the best of them. The service at Pickensville Marine just across the Alabama line was great; they patiently put up with lots of questions from this novice, and had answers for them all.

"I purchased my 1860VBWCCT (tunnel hull) JON with F60 Yamaha, flotation pods, and jackplate in March 2003. I started reseaching boats in the fall of 2002,but could not find any to look at in this region. This is the only time in my life I have ever purchased anything without first seeing it. My goal was to buy a boat that would allow me to run in shallow water, and be able to get in the lake and still have some performance. Primarily I fish for smallmouth in the New River in Va. This a rocky swift river with many shallows. I can say without a doubt this boat fills the bill on all fronts. It has made believers out of several naysayers that were sure it would not work. Operating in a foot of water coupled with the visibility and balance provided by the center console won them over. The staff at G3 Boats was very helpful with my questions as well as the article in Bass & Walleye mag. Thanks G3 and your staff. S&D Lakeside Marine in Dublin Va. is a great place to buy your G3."

It is now April 2003 and I just filled the fuel tank for the eighth time..... I'm impressed. Many Glass Boat owners are taken back, with the wide beam of these G3 HP's. This is the best looking Aluminum boat on the lake. It never fails while towing, it takes many people several miles to pass me, they really look over the G3 as they pass by. I have had several people look over both sides of the boat before they move on.

At the Boat Ramp, it is so easy to put it in or out of the water myself, it is hassle free."

"We absolutely love your new G3 - LX 22 Fish and Cruise pontoon boat, it is the best play toy we have ever bought. We go out in it every chance we get, and talk about enjoying the ride, this thing is off the scale when it comes to comfort. Then when you couple this with the 90 hp Yamaha 4 stroke engine you can hear everything that nature has to offer you, because this motor is so quite that if it would not of come with a tach I'd be running to the back just to make sure that it was still alive. Now you would think that with all of this you could not say much more but there is one more thing that people should know about this package and that is it seems like it runs on air because our gas gauge has not moved yet and no it works because I check it after coming home yesterday and it was still almost filled to the top yet. I can not say anything negative about this wonderful water craft, except I wish Yamaha would of started making them years ago, because then I could have been having the best time on the water during those years also instead of putting up with other type of boats.
