Xpress Boats

Xpress Aluminum Boats offers all the Features below

Durability. To ensure our boats are light weight yet have tremendous strength, Xpress uses only .80 to .125 gauge aluminum alloy. Each boat is precision cut utilizing our state of the art, computer-aided plasma cutting system. We use a tempered T-6 rib construction, which provides optimum strength for boat bottoms. Our floors and decks, all welded construction, and all-aluminum transoms represent extraordinary achievements by Xpress in boating technology.

Craftsmanship. Constantly striving for perfection, at Xpress we take time to train and perfect the skills of our employees. This means that we can effectively diagnose and correct problems we encounter during production. At Xpress our boats are handcrafted by one experienced boat team that pays special attention to every detail.

Quality. Our level of quality is simply unsurpassed in the boating market place. Quality in construction. Quality in craftsmanship. With over thirty successful years in the marine industry, Xpress has become the benchmark by which all other aluminum boats are measured. We will continue to invest in product development and new manufacturing techniques to ensure that we maintain our competitive edge.

Style. Our line definitely has style! From our new fiberglass consoles, color coordinated upholstery, fully carpeted floors and decks, and custom striping, to our glossy paint finish, Xpress is in a class by itself! Our research and development team accepted the challenge to improve our paint process. We invested in a high-tech paint facility complete with down-draft dust and spray removal, and a baking oven capable of reaching temperatures of 400 degrees. This latest technological breakthrough now allows us to complete in style with fiberglass industry. Slide your hand over the smooth surface. You will have to thump the paint to assure yourself it is really aluminum!

Performance. Defining performance is difficult. To some it means out and out speed. To others it means the way the boat handles. And still others define performance in terms of fuel economy. Xpress redefined the limits of speed and style in 1989 with the introduction of the Hyper Lift II Hull, revolutionizing performance in the aluminum boat industry. For nearly a decade, the Hyper-Lift hull has led the industry. Now Xpress is sure to rise to another level with the introduction of the Hyper-Lift II Hull. We're America's choice because our boats outperform the others!
