The Wooldridge AK XL is a dream come true for the boaters looking for the ultimate in handling, load hauling and fuel efficiency in an outboard jet boat. Wooldridge Boats created the Alaskan XL for those who wanted a bigger outboard jet boat patterned after the light and agile Alaskan and AK II. It is that, with a wider and longer planing surface, higher sides and larger windshield. This biggest brother in the Alaskan line is built to handle the most extreme river fun.
Wooldridge builds the AK XL in lengths of 17’ 10”, 20' 10" and 23' 10" as a windshield and open model with console or tiller steer. The XL has a 76" bottom, 80" wide floor, 29” sides with a 98 1/2" beam. As with nearly all Wooldridge boats it is available with our large two-piece walk through windshield for optimum visibility and access. There’s a three-piece aft helm windshield model with step-through door available in 20' and 23' lengths.
Tailor made for the full range of outboard jet motors, the AK XL features the exclusive Wooldridge jet tunnel, formed rib hull and extensive internal structure. The exclusive Wooldridge jet tunnel is a key to superior shallow water performance. The tunnel acts as a skeg, enhancing traction in turns and the ability of this jet boat to maneuver through obstacle laden shallows. The tunnel also helps flow clean water to the jet, directing “clean” water in for maximum driving force. The Wooldridge tunnel moves the jet foot up out of harm’s way or less exposure to shallow water rocks.
