And you thought the days of small jet boat exhilaration were gone. Not a chance! The 198X from Weldcraft is making waves everywhere there are skinny rivers to run, shallow gravel bars to cross, and fun to be had. At the heart and soul of this boat is Weldcraft’s industry-leading, all-welded construction. It’s built to handle the roughest water while keeping everyone and everything onboard safe and dry. A 1/4” bottom is standard for the ultimate durability. Powered by a reliable and fuel-efficient 350 EFI V8 and American Turbine SD-309 jet, the 198X gets up and goes in as little as two boat lengths and turns on a dime. Add the comfort and security of knowing there is no prop to damage and an entirely new playground is open for your enjoyment. Weldcraft perfected the whitewater hull decades ago. Now we’ve combined it with comfort and style that is so fun to play with you may never want to turn it off. The 198X presents the finest upholstered seating, elegant decor and contemporary design to excite everyone on board.
SKINNY WATER SPECIALIST.
Few boats can go where the 198X can take you. Its incredibly shallow draft hull and aggressive horsepower allows the 198X to cross shallows a mere 4” deep. Anglers, hunters, and thrill-seekers alike will never be stopped again.
FULL THROTTLE EXCITEMENT
The 198X puts the driver in total control and provides the visibility critical for navigating whitewater and boulder-strewn rapids. Sit comfortably in the fully adjustable, deluxe captains seat or stand at the helm for the ultimate view. The single lever, shift throttle control is dash-mounted and ergonomically positioned to give you a natural stance when quick reactions may be required. It also makes loading and unloading from the trailer a breeze.
