Flat Bottom Boats

Click To View

Flat bottom boats are the type of boats, which have a flat hull. The most common example of this kind of boat is the John or Jon Boat.

There are many types of hulls, the round hull, V-shaped hull, cathedral hull, tunnel hulls, and the flat hull. Among these bottoms, the flat bottom boats are the most recommended to be used in shallow and still waters like lake, pond, and small, shallow rivers.

However, this type of boat is not advisable for rough waters or the open sea because it cannot “cut through” the waves unlike the round bottom or the v-shaped bottom, which can glide easily across the rapid waters. Further, flat bottom boats are not really stable and may get bumpy when riding in wavy waters. Additional caution should be taken when on it, especially if you are with kids or non-swimmers.
