All-Welded High-Performance Pad Hull

Our ground-breaking AVX high-performance pad hull enjoys a running surface with less drag, increased bow lift, and superior overall handling and performance. The manufacturing processes we use create a consistent running surface not found in other brands.
CLOSE

Custom Built Vexus® Trailer

Don't settle for a trailer built by the lowest bidder. Ours are built in-house, alongside your boat. But we don't stop there. An ultra-strong, Channel frame, UV-protected polyurea coating, LED lights, matching fenders, aluminum wheels, and corresponding paint accents highlight the unparalleled package.
CLOSE

Loaded with Standard Features

You won't see us offering base-level equipment that keeps the starting price artificially low. As avid anglers ourselves, we package the boats like we would want them. You'll find our entire lineup has a stainless-steel propeller, stainless boarding ladder, smooth hydraulic steering, an onboard charger, and a proven Minn Kota Trolling motor built into the price.
CLOSE

Oversized Seal for Lid Openings

Our oversized seals force water away from the lid openings. Evacuating the water is critical to keeping your gear dry.
CLOSE

Vector Force Transom

Our Vector Force Transom is constructed of .125” aluminum and reinforced with 60% more material than the industry standard. The transom is the very foundation of the boat structure and at Vexus we're focused on ensuring anglers can outfit their rig with today's setback plates and shallow water anchors. Many others not only don't offer these options, but installing them actually voids the warranty.
CLOSE

Wood-Free Design

Knowing that your AVX doesn't rely on any type of wood reinforcement is more than comforting. It's Wood-Free Confidence that translates into worry-free outings. Now, you can leave the regret of corner-cutting composites and squeaky, rotten plywood far behind.

Compression Lid Locks
Hard Case Paint
Solid State Wiring & Lit Tip Switches
Custom Upholstery with Optional Adjustable Driver's Seat

Matching Fiberglass Console
We don't stop at simply putting a fiberglass console in our boat. These Glass-Infused Aluminum Hybrid designs benefit from the looks, strength, and quality of fiberglass throughout the rig. The console is built with a cantilever design that improves legroom and overall feel. No sharp edges and plug-and-play wiring make additional rigging simple. It's topped off with our exclusive Hard Case two-stage paint to match the entire boat and provide lasting value.
Oversized Gelcoat/Fiberglass Rear Storages
No more flimsy, plastic drop-in boxes held down with wood screws. Our fiberglass boxes are generously oversized while being sealed and foamed into each AVX. It's a solid combination that reinforces our notably quiet, solid, and responsive feel. Additionally, the raised lid openings provide an even drier seal, delivering added protection from water and weather.
Stainless Pull-Up Tie Cleats
Stop breaking rods and tearing clothing. Our stainless-steel pull-up cleats stay out of the way until they're needed
Oversized Pedestal Bases
Others use a ¾” diameter base to hold the fishing seats in place. We believe in going a step farther. Our 1.77” diameter base is stronger and will last longer.
Compression Lid Locks
One key to providing drier storage is to help ensure the lid completely seals. We accomplish this by using compression locks that pull the lid tight against the rubber seal.
Hard Case Paint
Many aluminum boats receive the same paint that's applied to a cheap utility trailer. Instead, we paint the entire hull showing no raw aluminum and the matching color is protected by a Hard Case clear coat. This provides a lasting finish that ensures a great look for years to come and ultimately increases resale value.
Solid State Wiring & Lit Tip Switches
There's no room for cheap, snap locks and failure-prone fuses in our wiring harnesses. Instead, waterproof connectors and resettable breakers are coupled with our heavy gauge wiring for the ultimate in confidence and reliability.
Custom Upholstery with Optional Adjustable Driver's Seat
Comfort is critical and a focus of ours. You'll find that the custom driver and passenger seats not only look great but feel the same way. With the Victor Package we even provide an adjustable driver's seat. Why shouldn't the boat be built to fit you, not the other way around? Coupled with matching fold down fishing seats our rigs are ready for those long days on the water.
Tournament Grade Fiberglass Livewell
When money's on the line it's comforting to know that our livewell system is designed to keep the day's catch healthy and safe. We incorporate a valve system that makes changes easy, no more sticking your hand in cold water to drain the livewell. Additionally, the well is equipped with recirculating aeration, a pump-out system, and Splash Guard technology.

ABOUT THIS MODEL

From bass and crappie to a host of panfish and more, now it’s even easier to confidently corner everything on the water. Not only does the AVX189 deliver exceptional quality, comfort, and performance, it does it all without compromising your budget. Measuring just over 18 ½ feet in length, the 189 is ideally sized, making it easy to launch, load, maneuver, and tow.

The revolutionary design rides on an all-new, high performance pad hull with an increased deadrise for an exceptionally smooth, dry, and responsive ride. Start to finish, it’s a commitment to advanced engineering that’s reinforced with the added strength of our Vector Force™ transom and Dense Base™ hull construction. The roomy forward deck of the 189 includes a factory-rigged Minn Kota Fortrex. Also up front, a huge, 8-foot center rod box is surrounded by a pair of cavernous storages. Each is equipped with stainless steel compression latches, raised lip dams, and weather trim seals. It’s a wet-weather system specifically designed to help put the ‘dry’ back in aluminum boat dry storage.

In the cockpit, instrumentation and electronics are highlighted by speed, tach, fuel, trim, and water pressure gauges along with a host of sealed, lit-tip toggle switches. Fiberglass-infused components – like the custom console with finished lower radiuses, contour-fitted side panel, reinforced gear storage, insulated cooler, and tournament-ready livewell – permeate the roomy layout.

Centering the rear deck, the fiberglass well offers even more best-in-class features. Equipped with recirculating aeration, an auto fill valve (no leaky standpipe to set and remove), pump-out, and anti-splash ring, the feature-rich 189 is loaded with confidence. Even the storages surrounding the rear well are set apart from the crowd. These solid, gel-coated compartments aren’t just larger, they’re encased in foam, making them noticeably stronger and more structurally integrated than the typical, thin-walled plastic drop-ins found in other designs. Additional advantages include a larger fuel tank, two-tone Hard Case™ paint, performance-styled seating, and a precision-matched trailer. Combined with the ultra-solid feel and sound-dampening benefits of our upright, level foam flotation, this is the AVX189. With so many standard features, it’s an unparalleled rig, Built to Perform and Priced to Move™!
