The Xtaero internal structure is being called 'hell for stout' by our Alaskan commercial vessel operator owners. We accomplished this by beginning with over 5,000 pounds of aluminum and fabricate approximately 200 precise aluminum parts that interlock and provide an aluminum structure that is stronger than any other design we are aware of. The Xtaero boats reputation is inherent in this rugged backbone.
The Xtaero design takes into account massive forces of the boats weight impacting waves and limiting vibration throughout the boat, then looking forward to longevity of the structure for decades to come. The result is that the balance and handling of the Xtaero is surprising to say the least, our customers are our best salespeople.
Xtaero aluminum boats utilizes solid welding in locations where other builders would call for only stitch welding. Stitch welding is sold to the public by penny pinchers as 'better' because there is less wire, less labor time and less metal mechanical deterioration due to less heat disrupting the molecules in the welded plate. Being 'hell for stout' Xtaero boats are welded solid (without stitching) everywhere that matters, especially strakes and hull stiffeners and for good reason. A well engineered structure properly assembled and properly welded takes into account metal stretching when it bends on the brake press (called elongation) and more aluminum and more structure offset mechanical properties. This 'old school' style of construction dramatically lowers vibration and noise, as well thermal buckling between welds (aluminum expands and contracts naturally with temperature variation).
Xtaero reputation as 'hell for stout' is because of our total quality philosophy. These pictures show the substantial structure and detail that gives the Xtaero aluminum boat its superior reputation.

Xtaero Aluminum Boats are called "hell for stout" by our customers. Word of mouth is our best advertising. Known for seaworthiness and comfort in rough water, our customers also report that Xtaero's offer the highest use-value in welded and or self bailing deck boats in this class of vessel. Each Xtaero Aluminum Boat is finished to order with single or twin outboards, various seating and cabin configurations and many possible option combinations. The best praise we have received is that Xtaero Boats 'are the real deal' by all of our customers.

Xtaero boats is an aluminum boat manufacturer with advanced hull form technology. The Xtaero hull design is proprietary in shape and hydrodynamics. To achieve the unique hull shape our factory includes an engineered steel tooling jig anchored in concrete. The one of a kind forming 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 was made in Seward Alaska between Hive and Rugged Islands. Peter Garay ordered his Xtaero long cabin sight unseen. Peter is one of the top ship pilots in the industry with decades underway as a captain in Alaska, Bering Sea, the Arctic Ocean and Gulf of Alaska. We are honored to receive such a testimonial.
