Xtaero Boats are hand made with a focus on elegance, rugged quality and seamanship on rough water. 

What is the Xtaero difference?

Xtaero Boats were designed from scratch to be exceptionally superior in terms of running in rough water, drifting, headroom, self bailing, and rugged long term quality.   Virtually all other aluminum boats in this class are modified river hulls obtaining their hull shape as a result of evolution of aluminum metal mechanical properties instead of naval architecture style design.

Xtaero Boats have a performance 'X-factor' in hull design that seriously makes all the difference over your years ahead.  Your use and enjoyment factor will be 10x greater once you feel the Xtaero difference.  Xtaero has a constant modified dead rise with a variable width chine flat that is truly a full hydrodynamic developed hull.  The chine and dead rise work together for excellent shallow water capabilities for rivers and lakes but also accentuate the rough water capabilities in deep offshore swells and seas.  We can't emphasize enough how much the Xtaero ride makes a significant difference in your belief about what is possible on the water.

Manufacturing these style hulls has been perfected over years and requires almost no stress on the aluminum when being formed.  Reinforcements inside the hull are substantial and have been hailed as 'hell for stout' by some of the saltiest captains in the world.

All decks are welded, self bailing and sloped downward. Five scuppers drain overboard, not into bilge or any internal reservoir.

The cockpit contains below deck fish storage of, depending on the boat, 25gal, 105gal or 160gal. Consider a 55gal drum to imagine how much fish storage this is.

The deep cockpit is secure, you can walk-into the cabin on the same level standing up and command the boat behind our true stand-up helm (there's 6'4" headroom at the helm).   You won't slam your head into the top of the door trying to duck into the cabin.

Xtaero exceeds all ABYC and NMMA manufacturing guidelines. All tinned wire with heat shrink and adhesive connections. We use top of the line marine only Blue Sea electrical panels, switches, fuses and bus bars.

We specialize in your needs for a boat. 95% of our deliveries are complete packages.  Every detail is spelled out and into one contract price so you and your bank don't have to worry about being nickel and dimed during the outfit and rigging of the boat.

Don't settle for a sluggish performing tub of a boat that sloshes around the trough and hammers you over the waves. Xtaero is purpose built to be 'the best boat you've ever been on in the ocean.' These words spoken by a proud owner of one of these hulls.

Home is the toughest waters on Earth. 

These pictures show the internal structure of our hull, girders, self bailing deck, deep cockpit and 'hell for stout' construction.

Why Xtaero?  Superior design and construction.  Our boat owners attest that their Xtaero Boat is 'Hell for stout!'
