Looking at those issues, they set out to fix it. With the background they have in fiberglass boat building, it afforded Vexus an advantage in taking on those challenges. They incorporated fiberglass in the console and also throughout the storage areas of the boat. Aesthetically its advantageous Keith says, noting that you can compound curves in glass that you can’t with aluminum. So the throttle panel, valve panel and all those things are built right in with fiberglass and then married to the aluminum hull. The fiberglass components and aluminum shell together form something entirely different from the old, leaky, riveted aluminum boats. The feature-rich AVX Series is well suited for bass or multispecies activities and the various models in the AVX series really cater to a variety of different buyers.
Keith says for those buyers who are looking for a do-all kind of boat that will let them fish and recreate is the AVX 1980. It has a center console, a lot of walk around space and jump seats. For a family with a couple of kids that wants to be able to pull a tube on the weekend, chase crappies and other activities, Keith says this will fill the bill nicely. Seeing this boat selling inland a lot, Keith notes that this style of boat used to be designed and viewed as an intercoastal/gulf coast type of setup. However, its actual much more versatile.
Vexus has 3 different model series available, the AVX, VX and DVX that people can check out online to determine what’s right for them. Keith says they have a lot of different offerings with varying price points. They also take pride in consumer choice and affording their buyers to hand pick their accessories. As a manufacturer, he says they offer all the name brand electronics, outboards, trolling motors, shallow water anchors and more. The result is a “have it your way” kind of building experience.
Outside of the boat, you also need a trailer. Keith says they actually build Vexus trailers under the same roof and right alongside the boats. In house manufacturing of trailers affords them the opportunity to do a lot of creative things and build quality into their trailers. Many manufacturers outsource their trailers, Keith notes. However, because the boat spends much of its life on the trailer, going down the interstate at high speeds, Vexus wants the consumer to feel safe and secure, so they manufacture trailers to their own high standards in house.
Listen in as Keith Daffron, President of Vexus Boats, talks about their AVX series boats and the unique glass infused aluminum hybrid.
