XB-21 BasSport

With the introduction of the all new XB-21 BasSport the Allison Boat company has just raised the bar for all other Bass Boat builders. For years Serious Bass Fishermen and Long-Time Allison devotees alike have begged Mr. Allison to build a more traditional Bass Boat. They were asking for the performance of the record holding Allison hull design and a fishing interior that would incorporate useful features not yet found in any other design. After seven years of development, the new boat is here. It is all that was asked for and more!! With the best efficiency of any 21 footer, the new XB-21 BasSport will outrun and outdistance all others. The new boat has storage and convenience

features that meet the demands of the most dedicated competitor. Several of the new features address functions that other builders have not even thought of yet.

Starting at the rub rail and going down, the first thing noticed is the all new standard docking lights or optional adjustable headlights. These functional beauties mount in molded cavities in the bow portion of the hull and feature flush fit Lexan covers. Headlight adjustment while underway is a breeze with the dash mounted adjustment knob.


Moving to the rear, exaggerated rear sponsons improve side to side stability while increasing buoyancy. Looking under the sponsons reveals the most new design features to be found on any new model boat bottom of any kind. Immediately apparent is the new "SKID PLANER". This simple device makes the hole shot twice as quick without affecting other aspects of performance. Patents were awarded on some of the new features of the bottom.

Allison bottoms have always been famous for their rough water capability. The new hull is even smoother riding with more deadrise angle and a longer keel. The wide running pad will carry the extra weight of your fishing gear and still provide unequaled fuel stingy efficiency.

Moving up top, the tournament sized front and rear casting decks offer all the space the serious fisherman needs to fight those lunkers. Every cubic inch of space below the expansive decks is utilized for convenient storage of clothing, gear, and rods.



Convenient Storage

The beautifully molded and curvaceous consoles provide wind protection only bested by Allison's own ProSport models. Sitting directly behind the console, only a little breeze is felt on the shoulders. You can still wear your cap facing forward at 80 plus MPH. The drivers' console hinges forward revealing a fourteen circuit automotive style fuse panel and instrument compartment. The dashboard is a marvel of design. All the instruments are easily read and there is space for everything including the Garmin fishfinder / GPS unit. The rocker switches controlling all electrical functions are well labeled and in easy reach. Sitting in the drivers' seat, the custom Allison gearshift lever falls easily to hand and your foot naturally finds the foot throttle. Both the custom shifter and throttle are standard equipment as is the custom steering wheel with built in trim switches.

Automotive Style Fuse Panel


The passenger console on the twin console model includes a spacious glove box. This console also hinges forward revealing a huge storage area for quick access to essentials. The side console model features similar under deck storage on the passenger side.

The step that takes you up to the front deck is also
the lid for the foam insulated and self draining
30 quart ice chest.

Built in tackle trays under the front deck and optionally, under the rear deck, offer organized storage of all the baits, terminal tackle, and bail boxes.

Convenient ABOVE DECK rod storage has always eluded Bass Boat builders. The rods that are in use always seem to be in harms way of getting a big foot planted on them. Allison is the first to solve this problem in a simple and manageable way. There is a above deck rod storage system complete with under deck protective tubes that place up to eight rods in easy reach but not under foot. This revolutionary system is backed up by two under gunwale rod lockers with tubes for the tips and sockets for the butts. The sliding doors are four feet long and lockable but can be left open all day for quick access.

Trash Receptacle

Sliding Doors

Since tournament fishermen cannot leave the boat during the tournament, we have built in a trash receptacle / emergency porta-potti. Normally a convenient place for up to five gallons of the trash from a days' fishing, a simple conversion provides the solution when nature calls.

Above we have detailed some of the more unique features that set the new XB-21 BasSport apart. Following is a complete listing of standard and optional equipment on the Tournament and Tournament Elite Models.
