Shallow Water Triple Taper Chine

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.

It is one of our toughest and lightest boat packages designed to run very shallow water, and particulary the extreme backwater marshes and timber of Arkansas. As you can imagine, it works well in all parts of the country.

Triple Taper Chine

Mud Buddy Motors

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 shallow vast grass marshes of the West, this is the boat to own.

Adjustable Stand Up Bar

Our Excel 4-position heavy duty stand up bar has three height adjustments. The bar also folds down into the boat as needed – just pull the pin. The stand up bar mounts to the convenient gunwale accessory rail and can be moved forward or backwards to fit the operator. The grip is made by Oury, known for their tough motor cross handle bar grips that grip when wet. Doesn’t get any better than this.

Camo Seat Option

This Optifade camo seat cover option is a great add to your boat. The seats come in both Optifade Marsh and Timber patterns. As most customers know, Optifade is exclusive to Excel and Mud Buddy and Sitka clothing gear products. The seats are a perfect addition to your Sitka clothing and Excel/MudBuddy 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.

Water Resistant Storage Option

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 car washes where high pressure spray can seep up and over the water resistant seal.

The Eclipse gun box is a bolt in 60″ option.

Built-In Fuel Tank 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.

Storage Trays

The Eclipse has two full length storage side trays with cup holders, that are perfect for gun, bow, rod, spin wings, tackle, keys, shells, etc.

Control Panel

Our recessed panel prevents accidental switch bumps. The convenient control panel has water-resistant switches, automatic circuit breakers, and two interior lights. Twin interior lights – one white and one amber (hunting use), 12 V plug, navigation lights, anchor light, bilge pump, two accessory options for interior LEDs and bow LEDs.

Bow Rails

Twin bow rails provide convenient handles to move the boat around in the timber and marsh.

Also, we provide a large welded-in bow eye on the front deck to secure the anchor rope and decoy carabiner.
