Hey everyone, I have been meaning to start a thread on here for a while but have been too busy in the shop. For reports on any activity up to this point, please visit my website, www.XplorBoatworks.com Please feel free to forward me over any questions or comments or feel free to give me a call 803-518-5660. I'm going to post the entire process that we have undergone at XBW to create the X18 skiff. Hope you enjoy. Cheers!

Finally got a shiny version to show off. This is the plug shined up for some quick pics this afternoon. The console plug is built to be trimmed to custom heights for each owner, starting height as shown in this image is 39" tall. The skiff will have 15" of walk space around each side of the console and the dash will fit most 10-12" nav units. The tank on the bow and the platform are not being used in this skiff. As of now, it will have a 25-30 gallon tank in the bow. The visible hook in the transom is lens distortion.

the tiller version will start at $18,500 for boat motor and trailer. The Console version cast about $2000 more (includes remote steering add on to the motor). If you would like a full price sheet for any additional options please shoot me a pm or email [email protected].

Finally got out for a final wettest on the X18 hull. Can't tell you how excited I am about this skiff. It does so many things well. Looking forward to getting on the road with a few of these shortly. Here are a few pics of her running around.

Good looking boat. Love your films. "Searching" is fantastic. That opening boat launch scene is very cool.
