  • Who went to the Bass Pro store? Who looked at the Thunderjets?

    I live in Juneau, but I saw that they opened yesterday. What models of Thunderjets did they have for sale? What did they have for power and what were the prices?

    I went there today. They had a 23' Thunderjet Pilot. Believe it was powered with a 225 Mercury Optimax.

      Think the price was around $78,000 if I remember correctly.

          I wish that Thunderjet made a bigger Pilothouse. They look pretty well built.

            Holy cow that is a bunch. I remember when I looked at them seriously in 2005 they were "only" 35,000 or so. I need a new line of work.....my paycheck hasn't doubled since 2003......LOL.....One thing for sure, they are a really sharp looking boat and I salivate over them.

              Check out my Electra Dyne pot hauler. Here's what a customer from Juneau just emailed me.
              "So far everything works excellent with the hauler. I am not sure why I didn't get an ED in the first place. Blows away the competition". I ship gear all over the state.

                The big Tjet pilot was about $84k, which is a special, grand-opening price. Normal price is right at $100k. Not worth it, considering the barren interior. Seats and that's about it. No table, stove, sink, head....none of what you'd expect from a boat that size.

                Other Thunder Jets that they had: Alexis, both inboard jet and outboard, Maxim inboard jet, and a few other Luxor and such with outboards. Prices seemed high to me, but without anything in town to compare them to, I really couldn't tell if they are actually high for Thunder Jets.

                I want the Alexis Inboard, though.

                  Rob they make them up to 30' according to the salesman @ BPS. He is supposed to get me some info on a 26' version.

                    Rob - The TJ Pilot House O/S is made up to 25' & then they offer their very similar O/S model (not PH) from 24-32' with a few differences such as welded head enclosure, higher sides, wider bottom, cabin finishes, etc. Both versions appear to be sturdy & well built + delivery time is supposed to be 16 weeks on a new build.

                    Sobie2 I sent you a PM.

                      Hi
                      We are selling our 30x 10 foot TJ Thunder jet offshore 2012 to down size to a 22 or 24 foot offshore. We are leaning towards a 22 but want a cuddy ( v-berth ) that will fit two adults. One being tall. Seems the more we look it is very hard to find that in a 22 ft. Is there just way more options when u go up to a 24? Any thoughts on hewed crafts, seems it is the only one close to where we live in Yukon,Canada. Looking at all south Alaska. All input is awesome.Thanks

                        May want to check out Wooldridge Pilots. Highly customizable and solid.

                          I was under impressed with their drift boat offering. Sparse, no place to put anything. Very uncomfortable looking, small and expensive.
