The Xtaero internal structure is being called 'hell for stout' by our Alaskan commercial vessel operator owners. We accomplished this by beginning with 5,000 pounds of aluminum, 17 sheets in total and from these we fabricate interlocking parts into an engineered structure which provides the rugged backbone.
The design takes into account the massive forces of mass times velocity in waves, vibration, balance and handling.
Over 95 pounds of welding wire is used. Xtaero utilizes solid welding in locations where conventional 'traditional builders' would call for only stitch welding. Stitch welding has its place but is often sold to customers that it weakens the metal. This is relative and stitch welding prevents cleaning, traps water causing accelerated deterioration and is not as structurally strong. A well engineered structure properly assembled and welded is much stronger with less vibration. Because of our design and construction the Xtaero is stronger 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.

Xtaero Boats are called "hell for stout" by our customers. Each boat is finished to order, including single or twin outboards, various seating configurations and many possibilities of installed equipment. No two boats are the same.

Xtaero boats are hand made in manufactured tooling using advanced hull form technology. The Xtaero hull design is proprietary in shape and hydrodynamics and is built in an engineered steel jig anchored in concrete. This process has significant advantages over traditional custom aluminum builds.
Each aluminum part precisely interlocks with adjacent parts, in fact each piece of the Xtaero is designed using curved vectoring instead of straight line vectoring, this is noteworthy because curved vectoring allows the flat surface of the aluminum sheet to be formed into complex shapes and the end result is a hull form with development very similar to fiberglass hull forms.
The Xtaero is that high performance hull shape, made from aluminum, that is the hull shape people have been asking for.
Because of this, Xtaeros are capable of, and known for, smooth ride at high speeds in rough water. The overall vessel design provides ergonomic comfort because space is simple and elegant. One of the most notable features is the 360 degree visibility from everywhere with no ducking, and there is no ducking or crouching required to get in and out of the cabin. The welded self bailing decks, stable side to side stability when floating in the trough and rugged welded construction make the Xtaero a unique high quality and high performance boat.
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."
"The value is here" says each of our customers.

This three part boat review made in Seward Alaska is Peter Garay who purchased an Xtaero sight unseen. Peter is is currently one of the top ship pilots in Alaska. Over decades as a captain in Alaska, Bering Sea, Arctic Ocean and Gulf of Alaska, including years based in the Aleutian Islands, we are every excited to receive a real review of the boat.
