New 2012 JC Pontoon Boats
New 2014 JC Pontoon Boats
In July of 1976, John Cripe (JC) and Jerry Amsden began building high quality pontoon boats in North Webster, Indiana. A few years later, John�s son, Kim Cripe, joined the company. Today, Jerry and Kim continue to independently own and operate J.C. Manufacturing, Inc.
To achieve consistent JC Boats quality requires two factors. First, only the very best components may be used; and second, complete control of the production process must be maintained. Unlike many other manufacturers who must rely on countless outside suppliers, J.C. Manufacturing is very self-sufficient. We are proud to say that all major components, rail systems, upholstery, pontoon tubes and bimini tops are made by us. These in-house capabilities give us control over the final quality of every JC Boat. What does this mean to you? Every boat with the JC Boats name will deliver trouble-free performance and top re-sale value, year after year.
JC Boats Evolution & TriToon hulls and nosecones are constructed of .125 marine grade aluminum ... the strongest in the industry. In addition, the SuperTube used in all SunToons is constructed of .091 marine grade aluminum with the nosecones made of heavy-duty .100 marine grade aluminum.
The U-Shaped SuperTube used on all SunToons gives you floatation when you need it. When your boat is loaded at it's heaviest, the U-shaped tube delivers greater flotation in the second or upper half than in the lower. You never carry water on top of a U-shaped tube. On a round tube, your floatation decreases in the second or upper half because you begin to carry water weight from the decreasing radius.
The flat top of the U-shaped SuperTube bolts directly (SS Bolts and locking nuts) to the flat surface of the deck cross members. No "saddle brackets" are necessary. This construction eliminates the "flex" of round tube pontoon boats and gives JC Boats a solid feel cutting through the waves. The U-Shaped tube is based on a canoe shape or the shape used in Catamaran sailboats. This shape is more efficient through the water than is a cylinder.
For 2010, the NepToon series has a totally new look. The white powder-coated rails from the premium JC Boats series are now standard on the NepToon.
In addition, a new helm, new graphics and new upholstery design are featured on the 2010 NepToon series.
In addition to the standard outboard power, the NepToon 19 is now available with the all-new 24V Torqeedo cruise electric motor; equivalent to a 6 hp gas outboard.
