My favorite feature of my 2020 X19 Pro is the performance of the boat. This boat is powerful, fast and handles extremely well. It by far is the smoothest riding boat I have been in. The layout of the X19 Pro was well thought out. The deck is large and easily allows multiple people to fish from the front. Below the front and back decks, there is plenty of storage for us to have all of our fishing gear on board and keep it all organized. Another great layout feature is that the wires and wire channels are run in a way that make it easy to quickly install and remove electronics. Next on my list of favorite features would be the SeaDek flooring. SeaDek is incredibly easy to clean, very durable and feels great to stand on. I will never go back to carpet in a boat after having SeaDek. Thank you Xpress for building superior boat!
I remember seeing my first Xpress bass boat at Lake Guntersville, around 2000 or so. I noticed something a little different that suited my style of fishing. As time passed I forgot about that experience and got another glass boat. Afraid to go where I wanted to go on the water and the fact I could simply not get this boat into some areas I wanted, the search began for something different. My wife and I went to a boat show and she said this is what you need, in front of me sat the X21 Pro, then the memory came back to me from Guntersville. I saw an Xpress in a spot I always wanted to fish but could and would not try to put the glass boat into. I said something to a friend and he told me to contact Dale Hightower who runs an Xpress X21 on the Bassmaster Elite series. Dale and I met and went out on a local lake. He said “I am not going to sell you on an Xpress boat” and then handed me the keys. Well, that was all it took. Originally, I wanted something to get really shallow and around rocks, timber etc. What I got was a whole lot more. Now, I have a boat that is smooth as can be on rough water, extremely stable, crazy fast (no hole shot – you hit the gas and you are on plane) and gets tremendous mileage. The boat just rolls off logs, gets in super skinny water, has more storage than I can fill up and the Seadek is near perfection. For me, the X21 surpasses every boat I have had, in every category.
I couldn’t be more happy with my 2019 Xpress X18 Pro. What stands out the most to me is the incredible hole shot with the 150 hp outboard. Also, the fishability is perfect. The recessed trolling motor foot pedal tray really comes in handy on a long day on the water. Another fantastic aspect of this rig is the seadek material on the casting decks. I don’t know how I managed to fish on carpet before. It’s cool to the touch even on a hot day, and rinses off easily after a day on the water leaving a clean rig to climb into the next time. I purchased my rig from B&L Marine in Monroe, LA. Nick there at B&L Marine was super helpful. I fish the north Louisiana area on Lake Darbonne, the Ouachita River and it’s tributaries.
Running an Xpress Boats X21 Pro has given me the confidence to go shallower where other boats cannot go and opens up more water for me to explore, plus I have the confidence of being able to handle rough water too!
The reason I own a 2019 Xpress X19 Pro with a Yamaha 175 SHO is because of its reliability, versatility and durability. This is my 2nd Xpress. I fish fresh and brackish water for bass and if they don’t cooperate, I will run out to the salt marsh to see what is going on. The Xpress also excels at going way up NW Florida’s tidal rivers to where they are full of shoals and underwater obstructions. The X19’s stout hull gives me the performance and peace of mind that I need to have to fish anytime and anywhere.
The best features about the Xpress X21 Pro would have to be the Hyper-Lift Hull for starters. I have never in my life been in a boat that takes big water so well. Second would be the platform and design of floor space on the boat. It gives me confidence to be able to fight a winning fish in any condition I may face. The third feature I really appreciate is storage. I have spent years gathering tackle and equipment in order to preform with the best in the country. Everything in my boat, plus loads of extra gear, always has a place in my compartments.
I love the way it rides and handles in extremely rough water and how shallow it drafts.
The first time I got in an Xpress bass boat I was absolutely blown away. After years of tournament fishing out of glass boats and having a flat bottom aluminum boat when I was a kid, I just had this misconception in my mind that was quickly dismissed. The Hyper-Lift Hull is something you just have to experience. I tell guys all the time…”just come take one ride.” It’s a game changer. I can run 65 to 70 mph in rough water that most boats have to slow down in. The SeaDek is awesome. Easy to clean, durable, and easy on the back when I’m up there standing all day. The storage is endless and every compartment is lit, even the livewell. For someone like me that does a bunch of night fishing it’s a great feature. So many things about my X21 that I love. The stability. The ride. The speed. The handling. The look. To me it’s what makes Xpress the king of tins. Nothing compares.
I have owned an Xpress X21 for four years and love the ability to fish anywhere in the country out of an aluminum boat. I fish the Bassmaster Eastern Opens as a Pro and it gives me the advantage to separate myself from the other 220 anglers in the field by getting into places they can’t go. Also, being a guide I am able to have clients fish comfortably and safely with all of the storage and deck space available. Growing up in Central Florida, I have been near some body of water my whole life. Starting out young fishing the Gulf with my dad to fishing my first bass tournament just 7 years ago. I have always been a competitive person and I am drawn to the rush of adrenaline that pumps through as they call numbers at the launch of a tournament and the reward of holding up your winning catch at weigh in. I have fished the Bassmaster Opens for the last 5 years (3 as a Co-angler, 2nd year as a Pro) hoping to join the ranks of some of the best fisherman in the world! Xpress was the first boat I found to meet all of my needs in a bass boat. From the power of my Yamaha 250hp SHO to the super shallow draft allowing me to quietly fish areas others can’t make it to. Over the last 5 years of owning Xpress Boats, they have gone above and beyond to make me feel like part of the family.
I was born fishing saltwater at a young age but was always intrigued about bass fishing. I started tournament fishing in 2003, participating in local events, Mississippi Bass Nation and Fishers of Men Tours qualifying for the Bass Nation Nationals in 2009. I have had a smaller Xpress for years along with a bigger fiberglass boat. I started running the Xpress X19 full time and its been nothing but awesome. I fish a lot of shallow water locally and the X19 gives me everything i need to fish shallow, big, skinny and rugged water anywhere in the country. Continue to pursue what your heart desires, never forgetting to be an arm of the sales and promotional market for the company I represent. Most importantly sharing the gospel of Jesus each and every step along the way. I have had the pleasure of working with Smith Motor Company in Hattiesburg Mississippi as my Xpress dealer. Hayden and his dad are great individuals to work with and will meet all your needs when purchasing your new Xpress. Its always a great experience. Running a Yamaha is the only option for powering my Xpress. The 200 SHO on the back of the X19 is nothing but a pure adrenaline rush. I have been running Yamaha since my fishing career began and the dependability is above and beyond all expectations. If you are not running a Yamaha, you don’t know what you are missing.
