About Us  

Exciter Boats was established in 1980 with our original design mini-offshore closed deck 14-foot v-bottom 140SS as the first model in the product line.

By 1982, Exciter Boats eliminated all of the wood in the construction of our hulls and decks. We were among the first in the industry to use an all composite wood-less lay up schedule. This eliminates the rot that sends so many boats to an early grave. We also expanded our product line by introducing our 24-footer and open deck 14-footer.

In 1989, Exciter Boats got involved in APBA limited inboard hydroplane racing. We introduced the first all fiberglass one piece hydroplane in 1990, sponsored by Code-Alarm car alarms and driven by James Jackson. In the following seasons, the Exciter hydroplane was sponsored by Enterprise Rent-a-Car and Exide Batteries with driver Jimmy King at the controls.

Exciter Boats also developed the APBA approved limited inboard hydroplane driver safety cell. This revolutionary design set the standard as a required safety feature found in APBA Limited Inboard Hydroplane racing today. We offer these safety cells for individual purchase.

In 1995, Exciter Boats entered the world of offshore racing when we built the Team Exciter A-13, an Exciter Boats 24-foot v-bottom. From 1995 to 1997, the Team Exciter / Certified Metals sponsored A-13 made the rounds on the APBA Offshore circuit. Driver Pat Dunn and throttleman Ed Steinmetz took the APBA Offshore A-class circuit by storm.

We are grateful for all of the relationships we have had with the boat owners, drivers, throttlemen and crew members over the years.

Exciter Boats is not new to the small offshore boat market,  we continue to produce the best boats possible by relying on lessons learned in the past.
