See What Recent Buyers Have to Say

“My favorite features of my Xpress H17 bass boat are the wide deck, the xtreme coat liner on the gunwale because of how cool it stays in the heat, and the SeaDek because of how easy it is to clean off after a day on the water. I bought our boat from Shipp’s Marine in Gladewater, Texas. The buying process was painless and they rigged our boat with everything I needed.”

“I am the current owner of a 2020 X21 with a Yamaha 250. This boat is a BEAST! Handles rough water just as good as a glass boat. Shallow water or deep water this boat performs flawlessly. The X21 has a ridiculous amount of storage from the bow to the stern. If you are in the market for a new boat, I highly recommend checking them out!”

“We bought our 2020 H20 Bay brand new from F&S Yamaha & Marine in Spring Grove, PA. We love the SeaDek flooring, especially while fishing barefoot, and it’s so easy to clean. The full-size livewell works great for keeping bass alive during my club tourneys and the lined rod boxes can easily fit 10 rods on each side. The Hyper-Lift hull with 115 Yamaha SHO gets on plane fast and is flat-out fun to drive. The custom-made BackTrack trailer is a cinch to load and is very handsome with LED lights, diamond plate fenders, and no maintenance aluminum wheels. We love our H20 and never get tired of the compliments at the ramp.”

“The Xpress H22B has been the go-to boat for my electronics training business. I currently perform electronics setups, training, and search and recovery, along with training seminars for high school and college fishing teams. My Xpress H22B is currently rigged with state-of-the-art Humminbird and Minn Kota equipment, and I have been a representative of these two companies for over 10 years now. Maneuverability, a stable platform, and the ability to draft very shallow water are vital in the success of the recovery of objects and drowning victims with my electronics. My Xpress provides these qualities flawlessly no matter the weather conditions.”

“I’ve always liked the look of Xpress bay boats and always told myself I would get one. Living in the Low Country, we have an amazing fishery. I spend most of my time in the inlet chasing redfish, trout, and flounder. This H20 Bay has been an amazing boat and has opened up my horizons of how far I can go inshore and offshore. I’m looking forward to more adventures in this rig with family and friends! It’s the best boat on the market!”

“My hubby and I have always loved the outdoors. We discovered the H22 Bay and loved the room this boat has, with plenty of deck and a lot of walking space around the console, which is a big deal when gator hunting. The storage was awesome as well. Plus, it’s a great-looking ride! So, we purchased the boat from Boat Sales of Lake Wylie and have loved it ever since. Our Xpress boat has probably had more gators inside of it than any Xpress in America! It’s so durable and never lets us down! We love it!”

“I love my X21 Pro w/Yamaha 250 and love talking about the boat. It draws so much attention at every boat ramp I go to. People still don’t believe that an aluminum boat can go that fast and handle that well (I’ve taken some people on rides). What amazed me the most was how well it fishes in big waves, but also floats in 10 inches of water getting to the back of little creeks. The buying process went very smoothly, they handled all of the additional paperwork well, and had me in my boat within a couple of days. They did a great job installing a new Hummingbird Helix 9 on the bow.”

“The 3 things I like most about my Xpress X19Pro are the shallow water capability. It can go where fiberglass boats can’t or won’t go. It has superior handling. It just floats above the waves on full plane in rough water. Finally, it’s a lightweight boat coming in at 1,300 lbs, which saves wear and tear on the vehicle, makes it easier to tow, and saves on fuel. I had a very good buying experience with Cary and Sons Marine in Texas.”

“The top three features I like on my XP180 have to be the versatility, look, and customization ability. The boat can go almost anywhere. From fresh to salt, calm to rough. It has been in backwater bays and open ocean. I love the look of the boat, we get compliments every time we are at the ramp. The SeaDek along with the Xpress logo on the hull really tie it together. The rails on the side of the boat allow for us to add rod holders, cup holders, and about anything that will fit in them. Plus. The seats are very comfortable. The price for what we have is unbeatable. The experience we had with Marshall’s Marine was great.”
“I couldn’t have picked a better boat for the inshore fishing I do in Charleston, SC than my Xpress H20Bay. My favorite features are the ability to get into very skinny waters, the SeaDek, and the Yamaha 150 V Max. The buying process and test drive in the mini-lake behind Marshall’s Marine in Lake City, SC couldn’t have been easier. I love the boat! Keep making great products that can handle the skinny water.”
“I love the holeshot and speed on my X21Pro! I’ve had 5 people and a live well full of crappie and still got on pad quicker than most fiberglass boats out there. I love the SeaDek. It not only looks good but is very easy to clean. As a crappie and bass angler, it can get dirty really quick and all you gotta do is rinse it out. The turning ability is insane. Fishing the Sabine and the marsh down here in Texas you need a boat that turns quick and stays on pad and this boat does it all!”

“The Hyper-Lift Hull on my H24Bay has to be the best hull in the aluminum boat category. It’s smooth riding even in a good chop, shoots out the water like a rocket, and allows you to holeshot in shallow water. The Yamaha SHO will forever be my choice of power. One more of my favorite features about the boat is the abundance of lights in all the compartments and live wells. The team at Florida Family Marine tricked the boat out as much as possible. When people ask what I think about the boat I always tell them you will be Xpressed with it.”

“My H22B offers great performance and is the most comfortable fishing boat I’ve owned. The Yamaha 175 HP powers the 22-foot boat nicely. The SeaDek is something I didn’t know I’d like as much as I do. Easy on the feet and knees when you have to get down and dirty. I’m an avid bass fisherman, fishing probably three times a week year-round. The gas mileage is impressive. The Minn Kota trolling motor with i-Pilot has more hours than the engine. Whether freshwater or saltwater, my H22B performs perfectly.”

“The feature I love most about my 2021 Xpress H18 is the padded hull. The ride on this boat is incredible! It’s so smooth and stable when fishing. Another feature I love is the SeaDek, which makes clean-up at the end of a long fishing trip a breeze just spray it out and it’s dry in 15 mins. And last, but not least, my Yamaha. It’s reliable and get’s me there and back. I’m glad Xpress uses a reliable motor such as Yamaha. I purchased my H18 at Wieda’s Marine. They made the buying process simple and easy. Thanks for making an awesome boat!”
“I saw the Xpress H20Bay at a boat show and liked the Hyper-Lift Hull and that it was aluminum, not fiberglass. The next day I went to Boats Etc. in La Porte, TX, and saw a seafoam green model and bought it. My 3 favorite features about the boat are the Wet Sounds audio system and head unit. The second one would be the upgraded Minn Kota trolling motor with an i-Pilot which keeps me in the spot I want to be in without drifting. The third feature I like is how smooth the boat rides. The boat handles like a dream. It’s comfortable and I’ve never had any issues with it.”

“My first thought on the H20Bay is “wow, this thing is beautiful.” The Hyper-Lift hull is crazy good when it comes to getting on plane. With 4 adults, a full fuel tank, gear, and ice chests it had no problem getting on plane. Here in Mobile Bay, it can get quite choppy quick and it handled the chop really well. I’m extremely pleased with the handling as that was one of my biggest concerns. Plenty of storage and all pumps, batteries, and wiring are easily accessible. 10/10 recommend all day! Very pleased to say I’m an Xpress owner!”

“The H24Bay that I purchased from Marshall’s Marine in Georgetown, SC is the best boat out there in my opinion! A lot of these guides talked bad about the aluminum boat industry until I gave them a ride on my boat. I will put my Xpress up against any of their fiberglass boats in rough water, shallow water, or anything! Y’all killed it with this design! The open walking room is perfect for charter fishing like I do!”

“If you are in the market for a durable and dependable aluminum boat, look no further! Xpress Boats are the top of the line when it comes to aluminum boats! Not only do they look great, but they ride like no other. The simplicity of the boat is my favorite quality! As a tournament fisherman, it is important to know that my boat will perform the same each time. I purchased my X21Pro from Bayou Outdoor Supercenter in Bossier City, Louisiana, and the customer service has been exceptional! Needless to say, Xpress Boats are the way to go!”

“After owning 5 hulls in 3 years, I found the XP200 to be exactly what I needed. My favorite features of the Xpress are the textured interior Xtreme Coat in combination with the washdown pump, the livewell/baitwell, and the HD hull, which gives me the benefits of aluminum with the stability of glass. My Xpress has kept me on the water year-round, fishing for anything and everything, and has yet to fail me. It is without a doubt the most versatile boat I have ever fished out of and had the pleasure to own!”

“I absolutely love my H20B! I have two kids so the jump seats were a big plus for me and it’s probably the easiest boat to pull I’ve ever owned with the weight of the boat and the trailer is so light.  Maneuverability is awesome in the boat as well. I fish freshwater exclusively because I live in Oklahoma. The 115 Yamaha SHO is perfect for my application and I haven’t found any water or weather that I won’t take this boat out in. It handles anything and everything I want it to. I have never taken this thing on the water and not gotten compliments on it.”

“By far the best aluminum boat on the market! I own an X19Pro powered by a 175 Yamaha. The gas tank is huge. The front deck is big enough to have a house party. The boat can reach up to 60+ mph in a heartbeat. Don’t even get me started about the tons of storage. I have 27+ rods in the locker with room to add more, plus the center compartment can fit me laying down in it. The buying process at Custom Marine was very straightforward and they made sure I was happy with my purchase. Seriously a great boat for all these features.”

“My favorite features on my Xpress H17 Hyper-Lift Bass are the storage, big fishing deck, and SeaDek. I bought my H17 from BoatWrx in Springfield, MO. The sales team was extremely helpful, quick to find exactly what I wanted, and very thorough in getting the sale done right with the extra components added to my Xpress.”

“I’ve had my 2022 Skiff 185 out on inland rivers, lakes, and inshore. No matter what I ask of it, it delivers. It’s just a phenomenal fishing platform. I’ve owned multiple aluminum boats over the years and what absolutely amazes me about this boat compared to those in the ‘feel’ and sound. It is so quiet and solid feeling you forget it’s aluminum. I’ve had this in some serious chop and could not believe how smooth and dry the ride was. It’s a well-thought-out boat, well constructed, and a pleasure to operate.”

“My H24 Bay is a haus! I love the dual live wells because I do a lot of live bait fishing. They keep fish and bait alive all day and are plenty big enough to accommodate the limit of fish. There is plenty of room for passengers and gear. Finally, I love the way the boat rides and handles. It turns on a dime, gets up on plane in little to no water, can be trimmed out while running wide open, and never bounces. I bought the boat from Marshall’s Marine, which went very smoothly. Great job Xpress!”

“The top three features that I like most about my X21Pro are the SeaDek that allows me to fish barefoot all summer long, the Hyper-Lift hull the provides tremendous speed and agility, and the storage compartments that allow me to store a maximum amount of tackle, rods, and equipment, which is very helpful for tournament fishing. I have never owned a bass boat with as much storage! My buying process with Carey and Sons Marine, near Dallas, TX, was fantastic!”

“I have fished my entire life from glass boats until recently when I purchased my first new boat, an X18PFC for my wife and me to crappie fish from. I did my homework when shopping and the setup of this Xpress was perfect! The stability of the Hyper-Lift Hull handles well in rough water. The SeaDek is beautiful and very comfortable. My Yamaha 115 SHO provides more than enough power to move me. Open Season Sports & Marine in Camden is great. They helped me out and got me into my boat the next day, rigged the way I wanted it.”

“The purchasing of my Xpress XP16PF from Trojan Landing Marine could not have been easier. The staff was great, patient with my wife and me, gave us a fair trade-in, and I walked away very satisfied. The features I really like are the construction, from the trailer to the trolling motor, built very solid. This is not a tin can boat. Ergonomics, there is no wasted space, great fit, and finish. It’s a great-looking boat, something I can be proud of. Finally, no shortcuts were taken. High-end parts were used thru-out. I will buy my next Xpress from Trojan Landing.”

“We purchased a 2021 Xpress XP180 from Marshall’s Marine in South Carolina. They were great to work with. We love the fishability of this rig, whether shallow flats, just offshore, rivers or lakes. This boat handles like a dream, fast, stable, and light. The XP180 handles all types of waters well for its size. We especially enjoy the large SeaDek covered casting decks. I can’t say enough about the quality of this Xpress XP180. It’s a real eye-catcher. We get lots of comments at the boat ramps and on the water.”

“I was looking for a newer flats boat with an affordable price point, came across the Xpress Skiff 185, and fell in love. This aluminum boat is durable for the shallow waters I fish. Secondly, I love the amount of storage space this 18-foot boat has. Finally, I am extremely impressed with how dry this boat is. I can run this boat all day and never have to worry about fuel or my batteries. The gunnels are plenty wide enough to walk on while fishing and the SeaDek adds the next level of comfort. I am overly impressed and happy with this boat!”
