Thunder Jet and Bass Pro – Update

Thunder Jet is proud to partner up with the world’s largest outdoor retailer, Bass Pro Shops, to reintroduce our boats into the Alaska marketplace.

Their grand opening on July 9th had an amazing turnout with a tremendous amount of interest in Thunder Jet boats from residents all around Alaska.

Bass Pro opened the store with a dozen Thunder Jet boats available ranging from our 176 Eco Jet all the way up to our 23’ TJ Pilot model.

Bass Pro is stocking a great selection of boats catering to fishermen and outdoorsmen of all types.

Since opening the crew at Bass Pro have already sold four of our boats! A pretty fantastic start to a great relationship.

Also with their new Power Pros service center Bass Pro Shops will be able to take care of all of your boating service needs from stem to stern.

They have a full selection of accessories for boats right on site along with more fishing and hunting gear than anyone else around.

Be sure to shop their fine selection of products along with Thunder Jet Boats to make the most of your outdoor experience!

Martha’s New Toy

After a one hour sea trial yesterday on the Columbia River,  Martha and I were amazed by the Thunder Jet Explorer. .  After a brief demo by the salesman,  Martha took the helm and put the boat through some of the same maneuvers followed by me.

When we decided to buy a new fishing boat for Alaska,  we saw the quality construction and experienced the ride in a friends boat in Canada.  With an open mind we looked at all of the comparable models and kept coming back to the Thunder Jet because of the quality and value.  With confidence we made our decision, even before we really understood what this boat does on the water.   I can’t describe with words what this boat did on the water yesterday. The only way to understand it, I think,  is to actually be inside where you see the water outside and feel the handling from inside.  It’s kind of like Space Mountain,  You don’t know what it is until you get off of it.

 

We are headed to San Diego for a few days and will bring the boat back to Anacortes just before Thanksgiving. Our first year basic trick out will include, owner installed,  Downriggers, Sonar, VHF, and bottom paint.  Feel free to stop by and check out the boat and be entertained by my wrench and drillmanship.
