This slick bottom boat will run through deep
water and chop one
minute and scoot through the shallowest marshes, without blinking.
Its triple-taper chine (area where the sides meet the bottom)
allows it to turn on a dime. The interior is designed for lots of
and everything is where it should be for the serious hunter.
Topping it off is the finest fit and finish ever offered on a duck boat
at an affordable price. Matched with a Mud Buddy motor, this
boat will take you into any backwater area.
Loaded with Standard Features
The new Improved Pod System (IPS) by Excel not only
looks great, but it has all the right angles,
curves and leg room needed to run a
shallow water motor.
The new pods also house a battery, bilge and
wiring storage box. Mounted to the front
is a recessed switch and breaker control
panel with two interior lights, one white
and the other amber so you don't spook
the birds when set up for hunting.
This photo shows the boat on the mono-rail
system at the Excel Boat factory. Boats move
along the assembly line on the mono rail allowing
the boats to built easier and better. This boat is
ready to leave the 2 million BTU quick-cure paint
booth. The booth with its 86 florescent lights will
hold 4 boats at a time.
If you ever drove a square chine boat you may have noticed
that they slide like a hockey puck. If you run your duck boat
through heavy vegetation, winding rivers and through trees,
you will appreciate our Triple Taper Chine. It allows the boat
to roll and dig in for instant on-demand turning control.
The Excel is more difficult to build than a square chine boat,
but if you want a boat that responds when the going gets
tough, you will appreciate our Triple Taper Chine.
(taper means the three bend here meet
at a point near the bow of the boat)
2" X 4" hardened and extruded longitudinal ribs
run from the transom to the bow. Rock solid...
The Excel Exceleration Hull™ has a unique bass boat style gunwale
that provides a number of performance benefits. More room,
better lift from the water, drier ride, better load capacity,
and on-demand steering.
