Family-owned and operated for three generations, Xpress Boats has been building all-welded high-performance aluminum boats in Arkansas since 1966. Our company understood that aluminum was stronger than fiberglass, lighter than steel, corrosion, and puncture-resistant, and does not deteriorate from exposure to the sun, making it the ideal substrate for building durable fishing and hunting boats. Plus, aluminum boats are much easier to take care of and cheaper to repair than fiberglass. From its humble beginnings in a schoolhouse in Friendship, Arkansas, we have grown to a 250,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility right here in Hot Springs, Arkansas. With over 55 years of tradition, people know that Xpress is a stalwart in the industry and will be here into the future. We have over 200 skilled employees spread across 25 different areas who share one common goal, to “build xcitement” for you. Xpress focuses on enhanced production efficiencies across our entire plant – from R&D and parts fabrication to welding and rigging. Our expanded engineering department uses state-of-the-art computer technology to ensure maximum performance, safety, durability, form, fit, and function. We started the all-welded high-performance aluminum boat industry and are still leading the way.
