The Xtaero internal structure is called 'hell for stout' by Alaska commercial fishermen. We begin with 5,000 pounds of aluminum, 17 sheets in total and cut precise parts that interlock into an engineered framework of structure which provides the rugged backbone.

Over 95 pounds of welding wire is used. Xtaeros utilize solid welding more in locations where conventional wisdom would call for only stitch welding.  A well engineered structure properly welded is much stronger with less vibration compared to no engineering.

Because of our design and construction the Xtaero is much stonger and extremely well balanced in cornering, in all kinds of waves and swells, and in particular riding smooth in rough chop.  These pictures show the substantial structure and detail that makes an Xtaero.

Home is the toughest waters on Earth. 

Xtaero boats are made by hand in our specially outfitted factory using advanced hull form technology.   They possess significant advantages over traditional custom aluminum builds. 

The Xtaero hull design is proprietary in shape and hydrodynamics and assembled in an engineered steel jig anchored in concrete.  Each aluminum part is precisely crafted to interlock with adjacent parts.  Every piece of the Xtaero is made with curved vectoring instead of straight line vectoring.  This allows aluminum to be formed into subtle complex shapes that mimic fiberglass hull forms.  The Xtaero is that high performance hull shape, made from aluminum, that the world has been waiting for. 

The obvious benefit is that Xtaeros are capable of, and known for, smooth ride at high speeds in rough water. In addition, the ergonomic human comfort aboard and use of space is simple and elegant.  Most notable features are complete stand-up helm with 360 degree visibility, no ducking getting in and out of cabin, welded self bailing decks in and out of the cabin, stable side to side stability when floating in the trough.

Please note that the videos you see of Xtaeros performing well in the water are not modified, most are simply taken on an iPhone or Android device and uploaded when we have spare time.  Our marketing philosophy is simple, "Build an incredible product and let it sell itself."
