Over 18 years Excel Boats has developed into an established U.K. brand with a diverse and market leading range of Inflatable and Rigid Inflatable Boats.
In the early days a state of the art production facility was commissioned for a new range of inflatable boats which would fulfil the criteria of ideal design and excellent value for money, integrated with the exciting contrast of form and function from Seacrest, the in-house design studio. (the "S" logo found on the bow of all Excel craft)
These exclusive facilities enable us to maintain a refined control on each boat in our extensive range throughout the production process. Our concept, coupling leading design with traditional construction methods, and testing each completed craft, ensures our confidence to guarantee each boat for 5 years for leisure use. The complete range is fully compliant with the Recreational Craft Directive for both the U.K. and Europe, all testing and certification undertaken by a UK notified body.
We endeavour to introduce new models and options every season. Recent additions include the unique range of Volaire, fully inflatable, fast deployment craft with low pressure hull from 3.9 to 5.3 metres. This leads Excel to have the widest range of inflatable boats on the market, boasting 28 models! and 12 Rigid Inflatable models.
Excel Inflatable Boats are available in a selection of colour schemes and fabrics. The all new Tornado Grey for 2021 complimenting an attractive array; Cirrus Grey, Navy Blue, Ensign Red, Nuvo Black and Polar White. For the Virago range of RiBs we now offer bespoke interiors. Only Excel offers the choice!
