Grand Rapids Marine is a proud dealer for Alumacraft. This family-friendly brand has been around for over 70 years and always delivers high-quality boating for every generation. Known for their fishing boats, Alumacraft’s 2XB hull is engineered for optimal lift and built for better fuel consumption with an engine that is quieter than before.
There are many reasons you should consider an Alumacraft. Listed below are 10 of those reasons to choose the new Alumacraft 2XB.
1) AQUA DYNAMIC HULL DESIGN
The aqua-dynamic surface of Alumacraft's gull-wing-shaped design results in quicker planning, better handling and superior boat control in even the harshest of weather conditions.
2) ONE-PIECE CONSTRUCTION
One-piece construction delivers superior strength over the competition’s two-piece hulls. Alumacraft's seamless hull allows for proper keel placement assuring the prop turns in pure non-aerated water.
3) LARGER MILITARY-GRADE RIVETS
Larger rivets mean greater inherent strength. Fewer rivets are needed and fewer holes need to be drilled, meaning this choice of rivets assures you peace of mind in all water conditions.
4) ONE-PIECE HARDENED CENTER KEEL
A deeper, one-piece keel not only adds structural integrity, but also improves handling, tracking and control in all conditions.
5) DOUBLE PLATING
Full-length double plating means twice the strength and protection all the way to the transom. The extra plate and solid-bottom construction dramatically reduce sound and vibration, and there’s minimal flexing that can adversely affect handling.
6) LARGER SPRAY RAILS
Large, reverse-dispersal spray rails deflect backsplash more effectively for a drier ride even in rough water.
7) ALL-ALUMINUM TRANSOM
All-aluminum transoms are lighter and 130% stronger than wood transoms. The stronger transom minimizes racking and vibration, providing a more durable mounting surface for today’s larger, more powerful outboards.
8) AUTOMOTIVE-QUALITY PAINT
Automotive-quality Base Coat/Clear Coat paint is stronger and more resistant to fading from ultraviolet light. Even damage like dock rash or scratches can be easily repaired without having to repaint the whole side of the boat.
9) BOW RAKE
A sharper-angled bow means a smoother entry into the water, giving you a more comfortable ride in big water.
10) 20-YEAR NON PRO-RATED WARRANTY
Most boat manufacturer’s “Limited Lifetime” warranty only covers one aspect of the boat, they warranty the most likely areas where issues can occur with a 10-year pro-rated warranty. Alumacraft warrants the entire hull with 20-Years non pro-rated against defects in material and workmanship.
