Excel Boats
F4 Pro Console

F4 Step Deck Pro Console

Excel shallow water boats with the triple taper chine roll into turns with limited slip. These hulls plane quickly, turn on a dime and are specifically designed for shallow water surface drive mud motors. Coupled with our F4 step deck, nothing matches the performance of this hull in shallow water.

Key Features - Mud Buddy Motors


All brands of mud motors work well on our Excel boats. Full feature surface drive motors like the Mud Buddy with electric shift F-N-R, tough outdrives and reliable power allow the Excel to go places others can only imagine. Whether in the deep timber of Arkansas, the beautiful backwaters of the Everglades, mystical swamps of Louisiana or the the shallow vast grass marshes of the West, this is the boat to own.

Water Resistant Storage


All our water resistant storage and gun boxes have a raised lip that fits into the box lid. This feature prevents normal rainfall and water splashes from getting into the sealed box below. However, be careful at carwashes where high pressure spray can seep up and over the water resistant seal.


This feature is a premium standard feature on all Excel brand boats.

1/4 " Tubular Bow Rail


This boat is darn tough. The 1/4" tubular bull nose bow on the F4 Pro Console is the toughest of any production or custom hard core duck boat. Plus the hull is .125 thick and built from hardened 5086 aluminum, the strongest aluminum that can be formed into a boat.

LED Headlight Option


The twin LED 5800 lumen headlight guides you through the darkest marshes or timber. The lights can be adjusted upwards or downwards as needed for your boat design, and the lights rotate around for backing the boat. Turn the light to the side to put out your decoys.


The headlight switch is located on the driver control panel.
