Shallow Water F4 Pro Hull

F4 Pro Hull
Extreme Shallow Water Performance

The Excel Pro Hull is a culmination of many years of duck boat ingenuity and this step deck is indeed designed to be what duck hunters want - light, tough and quick. The Pro Hull open hull design with reinforced floor will take you into those redfish and duck hunting extreme shallow water areas with ease. It runs shallower, is easy to turn with its triple taper chine and flat bottom and has exceptional high end speeds. Of course there are many options to choose from with this F4 Pro Hull, but this boat comes standard with full floor, low or high front deck, front grab rail, stand up bar, interior lights, bilge, running lights, step deck and some serious get-up-and-go attitude.

F4 Pro Hull

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.

F4 Pro Hull

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 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.
