I don't think they are cabin cruisers, I equate those as a more pleasure craft type of boat, these look more like working boats.



I like the idea of an small enclosed space with hardtop to get out of the elements.

We used to build jet boats very similar to those. Most got shipped to Alaska for use by outfitters that ordered them. I don't recollect them having any particular name.

I've always heard them called work boats.

Not sure on the exact nomenclature but Aluminum work boat or fishing boat is close. They are very popular in the PNW and AK. They have good stability, are durable and the enclosed wheelhouse gives you refuge from the rain. I have fished from twin outboard versions and really liked them. They were fast and comfortable.

ThunderJet was the company I worked for. Lewiston, Idaho.  


That's a really common jet-boat design. Most manufacturers use a similar design.

Down here around the Louisiana coast the oil companies use these a lot. We just call them work boats.

I think they would kick ass for cruising up and down the St. Johns River and near offshore, can get inside when a thunderstorm erupts, mount a radar on the roof.

 



I am guessing cost is why not more popular here.

I'd also imagine that without an air conditioner you would die at low speeds.

my guess is Floridians don't need "enclosed" because they get off the water when the Wx turns nasty.....  instead of $$$ spent on comfort they put it in the engine.  But you cant outrun light'nin.

I assume a FL version would have windows that could open, or flip down the windshield or something.

It wouldn't be too hard to slap a roof mounted climate control unit on there... Just make sure it's marine rated.

True, I used to have a A/C unit on a boat I had in Tampa, needed shore power though to run it, it was for when docked and sleeping on the boat.
