X Series Boats

“X” Series Boats

When Pro-Drive introduced their “X” series boat line, our goal was to design and build a shallow draft boat to complement shallow draft outboards. After running many different boat designs, Pro-Drive discovered that a tapered chime boat runs higher and drafts less water than the typical round or semi v style boats in every condition which, in turn, produces better speeds and higher load carrying capabilities. The tapered chime and smooth bottom gives the consumer the best maneuvering capability when running at idle or low speeds. Therefore, the “X” Series boat line has emerged.

Knowing that hunters and fisherman run in areas where they will have to cross logs, stumps and bottoms which can damage the bottom of most light duty hulls and because of its commitment to quality, Pro-Drive constructs all of its boats with 5086 grade aluminum which is 1/8″ thick. With experience from building airboat hulls in the past, Pro-Drive knew that in extreme environments, a boat that has ribs running across the width of its bottom tends to buckle in between the ribs. Therefore, Pro-Drive runs 1″ x 2″ rectangular ribs across the length (front to back) of all their boats. That along with 2″ x 2″ square tubing bracing the floor and side walls make it almost indestructible.
