Shallow Water F4 Console

F4 Step Deck 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 Feature - Electric Shift F-N-R


WOW - electric shift reverse. And all in one handle. The Mud Buddy mercury style shifter has the trim, throttle and electric shifter all in one place. So simple, just move the shifter forward or back and it shifts, a little more and throttle up. Sweeeet...

Key Features - Tubular 1/4" Bow


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


Orca Cooler Option


This 75 quart quality Orca high performance cooler mounts in front of the center console. The floor mount and tie downs keep it in place for your drinks, fish and snacks on those long runs and hot days. Hunters like the cooler which keeps their lunch and refreshments from freezing when snow is blowing sideways. And, the locable Orca is a great waterproof storage box for your valuables.

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.

Built-In Fuel Tank Option


The optional built-in 11 gallon fuel tank is a convenient add on feature for your new Excel boat. Included is a front deck mesh cover with two storage pockets. The tank filler is located on the front deck for easy access.
