Pro Hull Reinforced Floor

The F4 Pro Hull comes in 5052 (.100 or .125 thick) or 5086 (.125 hardened) aluminum alloy. The full floor has 4 to 5 (depending on model width) 2″X4″ extruded longitudinal ribs that run lengthwise to the bow of the boat.

The floor also has 2 ea, 2″ cross braces that reinforce the floor further, making this the toughest shallow water boat floor ever made.

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 out drives 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 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.

In the background is our Pro Hull Orca cooler/cushion seat option. Boat comes standard with a dry storage box seat.

Coast Guard approved shallow water marine craft flotation
Safety foam locations in the front and rear deck, all above the water line.

Built-In Fuel Tank

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. Meets all current EPA fuel tank evaporative rule requirements.

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 car washes 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.

F4 Triple Taper Hull

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.

Pro Hull 1754

Pro Hull with gun box, low front deck w/storage and dry seat box storage. Shown with optional Optifade Marsh camo.

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.
