Xpress Boats H20 Bay



The Xpress Boats H20 Bay boat may be the smallest vessel in the Hyper-Lift series, but it sure doesn't feel that way. The aluminum hull—that's right, Xpress Boats are all-welded aluminum boats—allows for a fast holeshot and sharp turning radius. Testing the boat on a nasty day, the boat handled the chop while running wide open, yet it was quiet during drifts for seatrout.

“That's because of the Unibody Injected Foam construction,” said Xpress Boats' Clay Connor. “It's not ‘hollow' like other aluminum boat manufacturer's builds.”

Wet decks won't trip up anglers because of Xpress' Xtreme Coat floor liner. Top features include two fold-down fishing seats with 13-inch extensions, two stern “jump” seats, built-in lockable rod boxes, leaning post and loaded fiberglass center-console with baitwell.

Florida Sportsman's Sam Hudson met with Clay Connor, Bobby Bittinger and other crew from Xpress Boats to test out the 20-foot aluminum bay boat on the Indian River Lagoon. The team from Xpress was on a cross country trip, touring its new boats from their headquarters in Arkansas. Home base is in Hot Springs. Xpress Boats first made a name for itself in bass fishing, and has now crossed over into the saltwater arena.
