The Inflatable Boat of The Future and the #1 Super lite tunnel hull in the A.P.B.A. Racing

The Inflatable Boat of The Future and the #1 Super lite tunnel hull in the A.P.B.A.  Racing Inflatable Boats by Inflatable Industries LLC.  DUX Boats is the founder of the A.P.B.A. S.L.T Racing class.  Originally started and funded By DUX and Tom Chaffee, in 1996, under a Special Events Class, with all prize Money, 6 Trophies for 2 (Two) Classes, “Bandit, 550cc and Outlaw 750cc”   It became the fast growing sport in the A.P.B.A.

The DUX RD-400XL (Aka Race DUX) has an Inflatable Sponson (hi-jackers) attached on the bottom of each Sponson, for fast planing and low friction, to achieve rail like turning and unmatched Fuel Efficiency, Speed and stability, and with the proprietary Tunnel design, we eliminated Chime Walking at speed above 70 M.P.H.  The specifications and design are proprietary and have yet to be beaten on the race coarse.

The DUX  line of, Racing Inflatable Boats, and Custom Inflatable Race Boats, (Model RD-400XL), is a Catamaran designed inflatable with TRUE TUNNEL boat technology. Features include more floor space, maximum stability , unmatched Speeds, and Extreme Rough water handling capabilities. With many knockoff’s now emerging, and entering the race coarse, it is imperative that the engineering of these outstanding watercraft stay 2 years at minimum ahead of the competition. This is done through constant R&D, testing and a religious life style to the sport. Hydrodynamics and Aerodynamics are a key if understood correctly. There are literally thousands of physics laws, and each serves a purpose. These laws are not to be left to those that are in this business for money! You must care about the safety of the end user!  That is the DUX top priority.

DUX Custom Build option, calls for re-designed, and sourcing in a lot of cases.  We continue to use only the best of the best materials to withstand the elements in your weather conditions.

The RD-400XL is still the 1-US and US-1, National Champion record setting boat, (set by Matt Merten and his crew in the early years of the New Millennium on Lake Alfred, In the State of Florida.) Press release are witness.
