Custom Camo Fishing and Hunting Boat

Next Level Inc. custom boats

A customer brought in his 16′ center console fishing/hunting boat for a stereo system, GPS navigation, SeaDek padding, and hidden lights around the boat.

This 18 foot G3 Johnboat came completely stock and wanted to take it to the Next Level. We started with the essential electronics, we went with a Humminbird Helix 5 sonar GPS fish finding system and chart plotter on the dash. Also on the dash we went with a Kicker bluetooth controller that powers two 4 inch Kicker marine speakers. On the Bow we went with the latest technology in trolling motors with the Motorguide Pinpoint GPS system. A few accessories like camo Swivel seats and accent lighting polished it off and made this John boat the baddest on the water.

You can see in the pictures that we have installed a Hummingbird GPS system right above the steering wheel. Then we installed the Kicker Audio system you can also see that was custom colored to resemble the rest of the woods look that the boat already had on. LED color changing lights are hidden up under the gunwale of the boat and in other spaces to add visibility at night when out, as well as makes for a great experience on the water.  Finally, we scanned the boat and took the date to our cutter for the exact measurements of the green and tan SeaDek Non-Skid Surface to be applied.

SeaDek is a great padding and non-skid surface solution for marine and other outdoor applications like truck tailgates, steps, and more. We have the capability to have custom etching engraved in the material. See the picture to measure fish sizes right on the floor of the boat.  That ruler is now part of the boat and a great tool to use when judging whether to keep or release your catch.

All labor done at Next Level Inc. is warrantied for life as long as you purchase the products from us. Installation time is fast because we do all of this work in-house. Come by or just drop your boat off and tell us what you want done to your boat, large or small.
