“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!”

“I purchased a 2021 H22B from Marshall’s Marine in Lake City, SC, and was impressed with their customer service. I spend a lot of time taking veterans out fishing with a non-profit called Hook Line and Heroes, so safety is my main priority. I decided on the Xpress H22B because of the reputation of an Xpress with the Hyper-Lift Hull, plus there is plenty of room on the front deck, and it’s perfect for bass, striper, redfish, catfish, and crappie. The tandem axle trailer and the weight reduction of aluminum made towing a breeze!”

“If you are looking for a durable and dependable boat then Xpress Boats are the way to go. Not only is it the best aluminum riding boat today, but its appearance is like no other. The simplicity of the boat is my favorite quality. As a tournament fisherman, I know when I put the boat in the water it will perform the same way each time. I purchased my 2016 XP160 from Bayou Outdoor Supercenter in Bossier City, Louisiana and the customer service has been exceptional. So, if you are looking for a new aluminum boat look no further Xpress boats is the way to go!”

“I am now in my third Xpress and couldn’t be happier in my 2019 X21Pro. The dealer made the buying process so extremely easy. Each time I have bought a boat I never considered anything, but an Xpress. Fishing in Arkansas is diverse, from large deep lakes to shallow skinny water. I chose Xpress because of its durability, performance, and SeaDek flooring. I have had a great experience with customer service from the factory. They have been extremely helpful and prompt for anything I have needed and couldn’t ask for anything more.”

“In 2018, I elected to purchase my first boat, a 2004 Xpress H51 equipped with a 90HP Yamaha. This boat offers versatility ranging from fishing shallow water as well as taking the relentless waters of the TVA lakes. I’m pleased with the fishability regarding the boat’s platform and storage. Performance is another expectation that was met, whether it is riding across glass water or choppy water. Lastly, Xpress holds their value over time. All Xpress Boats purchases are not new from the factory, yet the quality of the brand provides all owners with xcitement for generations to come.”

“My Bayou 17V gets me anywhere I need in south Louisiana. The top three features I value are the accessory rail system, for which I ordered the convenience station that is perfect for a drink and a box of shells when hunting. The second feature is the paint, which looks great and holds up when running flooded timber and marsh. The third feature is weight. The boat is incredibly light, making it easy to trailer. I purchased my Bayou 17V from Boats Unlimited in Baton Rouge who was extremely easy to buy from. I love the boat and can’t recommend it enough!”

“I use my 2017 HD16DB mostly on my home lake of Beaver Lake for striper, bass, and crappie fishing. The features I value most are the long and wide front deck, which gives me a ton of space to leave rods down as well as still move around without ever feeling cramped. The stability of the boat overall is unmatched from a 16’ aluminum boat. The rod box isn’t enclosed, so I can fit my 9’ fly rods and 10’ crappie poles in there and lock it up. Finally, the massive back deck allows for people to fish from the back of the boat comfortably.”

“The features I like most about my 2018 Xpress XP200 Catfish that I bought from Smith Motor Company in Hattiesburg, MS, are the size, layout, accessory rail system, and xtreme coat liner. I’ve had five people, three big coolers, a baitwell full of water, and the giant front livewell and the boat still performs excellent with the Yamaha 115. The decks are huge and comfortably fit three guys on the front deck. The full-length rod box allows me to walk the full perimeter of the boat without stepping down onto the floor. I also appreciate the accessory rail system and xtreme coat liner.

“My buying process with AK McCallum, in Fayetteville, NC, was a fly-by. The HD16DBX with tiller steer and open console would benefit my hobbies and affordable. My HD16DBX has proven to be rugged and durable. I haven’t had to worry about breaking anything or scratching the hull because it’s aluminum. I appreciate the accessory rail, open floor plan, ample deck space and storage. For the amount of duck hunting I do, and the conditions I’ve put my rig in, I can hands down say it has never let me down.”

“My 2020 Xpress 18V Bayou that I purchased from Seels Outboard in SC is an absolute beast! From mud banks to running through rice fields, jumping logs to get to a hole, this hull will handle anything in its way. The reason I went with the Bayou was because I needed a hull that I could put a surface drive on. I love this hull design. It handles really well in rough water, which is why I went with Xpress Boats. I couldn’t have gone with a better boat that rides and turns as well as this hull does for me.”

“There are several things we love about our Xpress H20Bay. We like to run the skinny backwaters of Mosquito Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee. We wanted a boat that could do it all and that’s why we chose Xpress. One of my personal favorite features is how much thought was put into the drainage when it came time to wash the boat. Water literally drains everywhere and no puddles are left behind. My girlfriend loves all of the storage capabilities and how the deck of the boat never gets hot to the touch. For an all-aluminum boat, that’s pretty impressive especially in the Florida heat.”

“My fiancé and I were in the process of getting a new boat that was light, durable, and able to handle the oyster bars. We stopped by Gulf to Lake Marine, who led us towards the Skiff 185, making the buying process extremely easy. Just the weight of the boat had me sold, plus it’s aluminum. I’m super impressed with the Yamaha 115 SHO, which is one of the lightest on the market. After my fiancé saw the SeaDek and the color scheme she was sold. I’m impressed with its performance each and every time we take it out!”

“We love our X23Bay because of the size, ample space, and stability! It rides great on chop and has high gunnels, so my boys are safe on the water. The SeaDeck is cool and comfortable on the feet. This boat is easy to fish out of. We purchased our boat from Florida’s Family Marine in Deland, FL, and had a t-top installed from RT Marine, in Columbia, SC, which provides much-needed shade and adds a great look to the boat… Xpress is the best aluminum bay boat out there. I wouldn’t go down the Savannah River on anything, but an aluminum boat made by Xpress!”

“The first priority I had when purchasing my 2020 Xpress Skiff 185 was versatility. I needed a boat that could handle big freshwater lakes and perform in the marsh. The Skiff 185 has hit the nail on the head. It gives us plenty of room and is a great platform for all styles of fishing. I have been blown away at how well it handles rough water and cuts the chop on windy days. The SeaDek gives a great non-slip platform that is very easy to keep clean! I bought this boat from RJs Outboard in Brandon, MS. I can’t thank Xpress enough for the time they put into this build!”

“I own a 2012 XP180. I love the ride for a flat bottom. I fish the Chesapeake Bay, especially in the fall for rockfish (for you non-Marylanders,  that is striped bass) lol. The storage is perfect.. whether I am fishing, crabbing, or hunting. The camo design is different and stands out. I bought the boat from R & C Marine in Queenstown, MD. Good guys. They even came out to replace the locks.”

“I was looking for a good all-around platform to use for inshore saltwater fishing mostly, bass fish lakes, and bring the family out on the water with comfort. I bought a 2020 H22Bay with a 175 SHO from Bent Marine in Metarie, LA. I like the capability of being able to put a 22ft boat in very shallow water chasing redfish and having the confidence to make it back with no problems even if conditions worsen in the bay. The fuel economy is awesome, along with great top-end and cruising speeds. I truly cannot think of a better boat that would suit my needs at this time.”

“I am blown away with my Skiff 185! I was a bit nervous that the ride quality wasn’t going to be great enough of an improvement to warrant spending the money, but after the first day out I’m blown away by how well it handles in choppy water. I’m able to jump right up in less than two foot of water. I fish the Nature Coast of Florida and being able to run in skinny water is very important. Fishability seems excellent. I purchased my skiff through Florida’s Family Marine in Deland, which was outstanding. I would recommend them to anyone!”

“I have a 2019 HD16DBX that I purchased from Rothwell Marine in Hope, AR, that I absolutely love! The number one feature that I love is the amount of room inside the boat, which allows for maximum comfort. I appreciate how well it handles rough water for its size. Finally, the durability and strength of an Xpress are second to none. Bumping trees going through the timber, pulling up on gravel bars, or even concrete, nothing damages this boat. I wanted a lifetime boat and that is definitely what I got  and why I chose Xpress Boats.”
