Triple Taper Chine

Grab Bar Console

Standing or sitting – the Excel’s new universal console features a grab bar to help you run rivers, timber and take those sharp turns. Just like they use on Mud Buddy motor boats. Standing or sitting, this console makes it so much easier to drive your boat.

Excel’s owner, Glenn Foreman, personally designed this console that does a whole lot of little things that just make sense for any tiller model boat.

In addition to the handy grab bar, the Excel Switchblade console features front dry storage, an easy-access switch panel, and two shelf storage areas for glasses, tools, fishing gear, and hunting shells.

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.

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.

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.
