“I purchased a 2021 H22B from Marshall’s Marine in Lake City, South Carolina. It was my first time purchasing a new boat. I was impressed with the customer service I received from Jason Altman and his team at Marshall’s. I would recommend that dealer to anyone that wants a top-notch boat buying experience. I am a bass fisherman and I’ve fished tournaments the last 16 years as a co-angler/boater. I’ve fished out of every boat that you can think of. I own a used fiberglass bass boat and I knew I wanted to purchase an aluminum boat. I enjoy multi-species fishing and also spend a lot of time taking veterans out fishing with a non-profit called Hook Line and Heroes. We take veterans with disabilities out on fishing trips along the East Coast, including fresh and saltwater. As a disabled combat veteran myself, I wanted to introduce fishing to other veterans to help destress and unwind. I liked the center console boats the guides were using on our trips and were surprised that bass tournament guys weren’t fishing center consoles more. Safety is my main priority especially in rough water conditions and the Xpress bay boat handles great in choppy conditions. I stepped out of the box and decided that versatility would play an important role in my purchase. I weighed my options and it was hard not to buy an aluminum bass boat because that’s what everyone else had and nothing was wrong with that idea, but I wanted to do more than just bass fish. I decided on the Xpress H22B because the reputation of an Xpress boat with the Hyper-Lift Hull design was second to none. I also paired the boat with a Yamaha 200 SHO. My first ride in the test lake at Marshall’s Marine reaffirmed what I already knew. The hole shot was unreal. After several outings, after the break-in period, I noticed that this boat was as fast or faster than my fiberglass boat. I decided to equip my center console just like I would a bass boat. I was surprised with how many rods I could fit in the rod box. There was plenty of room on the front deck. If I didn’t look behind me I would’ve never known I was fishing from a center console. It was perfect for bass, striper, redfish, catfish, crappie, and well I guess they’re all covered with this boat. The towing was another factor of why I went with aluminum. The tandem axle trailer and the weight reduction of aluminum made towing a breeze. I had to keep reminding myself that my boat was behind me. The money I saved from towing a lighter boat is not a bad thing either. I am impressed and satisfied with my Xpress boat!”
The top 3 features I love about my H22Bay are as follows: I purchased a boat not only for the great fishability, but also because it is family friendly. My family enjoys wake boarding, tubing, joy riding and just swimming and relaxing. This boat offers everything you need in one platform. Secondly I love the room this vessel offers for my main reason which is fishing. It offers a ton of storage for rods, lures and equipment. Plus plenty of room for more than one at the bow for fishing. The bow is laid out perfectly to fit 2 large coolers for additional fish storage. The third thing I love about my new boat is the ride. This thing handles and runs just like a fiberglass bass boat but better in my opinion. The power out of the hole is incredible and perfect for those wanting to wake board or ski. Not to mention a great hole shot for tournament days. My purchase from L&M Marine in Alabama was so easy and they’re very friendly. I didn’t just feel like a number there. They were genuine and were eager to answer any questions I had about the boat and future upgrades. I can’t commend the guys at L&M more. Super great people to work with. Thanks L&M for the great service and thank you Xpress Boats for in my opinion, the best all around boat on the market!
We love our X23Bay because of the size and stability! It rides great on chop and has high gunnels so my 7 year old twin boys are safe on the water. The ample space makes it great for two families of four. 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. We than had a t-top installed from RT Marine, in Columbia, SC, which provides much needed shade and adds a great look to the boat. We chose Xpress for all of these reasons and the fact that it’s the best aluminum bay boat out there. I wouldn’t go down the Savannah River on anything, but an aluminum boat made by Xpress!
I bought a 2020 H22Bay with a 175 SHO from Bent Marine in Metarie, Louisiana. I was looking for a good all-around platform to use for inshore saltwater fishing mostly but also be able to bass fish out of and bring the family out on the water with comfort. 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. I fished the Texas Oilman’s Bass Tournament on Toledo Bend out of it in March and placed 74th overall, which was great in my eyes fishing my first tournament out of my boat on a lake that I’m not very familiar with, but the boat gave me the confidence to run anywhere in the lake that I wanted to go. The fuel economy is awesome with this package along with great top end and cruising speeds. I truly cannot think of a better boat that would suit my wants and needs at this time. It truly is a good all-around package. I’d like to also add how impressed I was with the ride of the boat. I was a little skeptical with it being an aluminum hull, but the ride is amazing in every condition that I’ve put it through so far.
I spent almost a year shopping for a boat. The versatility of the the Xpress kept bringing me back to it, so I purchased a 2019 H20Bay from Outcast Watersports, in Tampa, FL. I have been on many fiberglass boats and I was surprised how well the Xpress handles, the layout is perfect for all types of fishing from saltwater to freshwater and I’m glad I got the optional SeaDek. Best of all is the price point, with all the electronics included. You can’t beat it!
Versatility, speed and stability would be my three favorite features of my 2018 XP20CC. Whether hunting diver ducks on big water or running the river and backwaters, you can comfortably hunt four men and a dog with all of your decoys and equipment. You can take the blind off in the spring time, put the trolling motor down and fish a tournament or just enjoy a fun day on the lake with family and friends. My Xpress handles any job on the water that 365 days a year.
I’ve owned a lot of different boats, both fiberglass and aluminum, and couldn’t be happier with my 2017 Xpress H20Bay boat, which I bought from Grove Marine. They’re great people to do business with. I run a family-friendly guide service and specialize in spoonbill from November until the end of February the rest of the year I chase crappie, white bass and hybrids. I chose Xpress Boats because of the great storage features they have on the boat compared to other aluminum boat brands. I like the durable finish and cool touch feature of the extreme coat in the summertime. My H20Bay services up to five fishermen comfortably on a guided trip. I also like the bait well built into the front of the center console and rear livewell. The smooth ride of the boat, paired with the Yamaha VMAX, is great for power and fuel economy. I don’t think there’s a better boat motor combination for the money!
Just wanted to take a minute and let you all know how impressed I am with Xpress Boats! I just purchased a H24 Bay with the Yamaha 250 SHO from Smith Motor Company in Hattiesburg, MS, and let me tell you that it’s one fine machine. The experience I have had from the dealership, Xpress Boat owners on Facebook and from staff at the main office has been nothing short of exceptional. The things I like most about the boat are the way it just jumps out of the hole when I take off, I mean its like it just stays on a plane no matter what speed your going. I love the way it reacts at high speeds. I would have never expected such a good ride in chop with a aluminum boat. Can’t wait to get some friends out on the water to show them what a Xpress Boat can do!
The first thing that really drew me to an Xpress was the way they look to be honest, this thing is sleek and sexy, just flat looks fast sitting still. I’ve always admired them. The storage and floor space on my H24Bay really sold me when I saw it. Then the little things, like the kick down foot rest and carpeted storage. What really impressed me is the ride! It cuts the chop, providing a good dry quiet ride. It eats wake boat waves. My clients can’t believe it’s an aluminum boat. It will fish 4 people with a 50 gallon filtered shad tank loaded with tackle and run 52 doing it. For those keeping track, 8 pounds per gallon at 50+ gallons (not including shad is 400 pounds give or take) in front of my console! When it’s unloaded it’s running 63. I am absolutely sure the Yamaha 250 SHO has more in it with a little playing with the prop. However, with the way it comes out of the hole and the mid range punch it has I’m leaving well enough alone. The torque this motor has is incredible! The tuned exhaust has a performance note without being 2 stroke obnoxious at all, very similar to a Corvette. The custom SeaDek option is something I wasn’t sure I needed, but now that I have it, I wouldn’t be without it. All in all, the more I fish it the more I love it, which is a really good thing because it’s my office five days a week.
