New Sports Fisher Range of boats from Excel boats launched Southampton Boat Show 2019

All-new craft made world debut at this year's show held from 13 – 22 September

Excel Boats announced the launch of their all-new Verano Sports Fisher range at the Southampton Boat Show 2019.

The brand new line-up incorporates three striking new models in the range – the 480, 530 and the spacious 580. Both lightweight and durable, the craft are constructed from 5052 marine-grade aluminum.

Unveiled for the first time at Berth M061, the sleek Suzuki-powered Verano 530 offers sports performance with crisp handling for the leisure or commercial angler. Special features include full centre console equipped with everything owners need for performance monitoring, navigation and communications.

Excel Boats owner, Terry Wright said: "We were excited to officially launch our all-new Verano Centre Console Sport Fisher models at the Southampton Boat Show, which attracts boating enthusiasts from the UK and around the world".

"The innovative new range utilises existing features from our Excel Vantage range of commercial RiBs. With in-house R and D this has enabled us to diversify into a range of sport fisher boats for commercial and recreational users. The strong, sleek and lightweight craft features a meticulously designed and fully-welded, plated aluminium hull and superstructure manufactured from 4mm alloy plate to provide an efficient hydrodynamic profile for improved handling, performance and comfort in virtually all sea conditions."

Also unveiled by the company at this year's show was the new Excel Volaire 330 inflatable boat. At 3.9 metres in length, the portable, strong and spacious boat is a practical solution for commercial or recreational uses where speed of access to the water is required.

Mr Wright added: "The quick deployment of the Volaire has already been acclaimed by emergency services but will be appreciated by all users looking to be on the water with a minimum of effort whilst enjoying the opportunity to have an easy to transport larger craft. Our research found that some inflatable boats with a floor-length greater than 3.9 metres experienced flexing of the hull when on the water, yet the Volaire integral low pressure handcrafted hull enables us to build up to 5.3 metres in length."

Based at Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands, Excel is a keen player in the UK and international markets and has supplied safety boats to the organisers of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, the European Games in Azerbaijan and rescue boats to a flood disaster in Pakistan.
