JLS Series

The Evolution of Carolina Skiff

Introducing the JLS Series. The innovative JLS Series combined all the sought-after features and design of the popular Carolina Skiff JVX Series into the newly engineered JLS Series with a liner hull, which gives strength, rigidity and enhanced fit and finish throughout the boat. The modified V hull center console with the liner deck delivers a smoother and more comfortable dry ride for family and friends. The new JLS Series yields additional key benefits with the design as well. All deck compartments are molded into the design and bonded together with the deck, resulting in a one-piece boat with increased structural integrity of the boat.
The JLS is loaded with many standard features, delivering the greatest value for families who are seeking tremendous “fishability” in a center console for bays, creeks, rivers and more. The JLS Series delivers the unsurpassed benefits of durability, reliability and affordability. Plus, the Carolina Skiff JLS Series has many upgradable options to meet the needs of every family's lifestyle and fishing passions. Key additional options include hull color upgrades, 24-volt Trolling Motor Plug, 12/24-volt Trolling Motor Panel with Tilt, AM/FM Bluetooth Radio w/USB, iPod and AUX Plugs, Maxi Flow Recirculation System, and Bimini top, to name just a few.
