Catfish Pro Reverse Chine Hull

Excel catfish boat
Steve Douglas (Catfish Dude - Wild Catter's TV)

The Catfish Pro viper style hull with reverse chine gets on step quickly, rides smoothly and turns like it is on rails.


Not available with the center drain grate in 2021.


Key Feature - Super Large Livewell


When we say our Excel boats have all the right features - in all the right places, we mean it. This livewell is big - large enough for any fish we catch.

Key Feature - Water Resistant Boxes


All our water resistant storage boxes have a raised edge on top of the box that fits into the cover. This feature prevents normal rainfall and water splashes from getting into the sealed box below. However, be careful at carwashes where high pressure spray can seep up and over the water resistant seal.


This feature is a premium standard feature on all Excel brand boats.

Key Feature - LED Headlight Option


These 5800 Lumen twin LED tough headlights will show you the way through open marshes of the midwest or the timber of Arkansas. The lights can be adjusted upwards/downwards as needed, and the base swivels around for backing the boat up or any direction you want to put out your decoys out. Shock absorbing hold downs help protect the light assembly when going through brush and timber.


The headlight is operated on/off from the drivers panel accessory switch shown above.
