Excels Inflatables Features Page
Excel inflatable boats have an outstanding reputation for quality and performance. The high standard of construction is apparent with any Excel, from the strength of the seams to the feel of the fabric. The effective and proven design of each individual craft can only be fully appreciated on the water, however we have tried to compress years of R&D into a few examples listed below to demonstrate how Excel have excelled in a highly competitive market:
