Hot Springs, AR. November 8, 2016 – Xpress Boats, The Original All-Welded Aluminum Boat Manufacturer has been chosen by Skylar Hamilton, 2016 Bassmasters Arkansas River Open Winner and Elite Series qualifier as his boat of choice for the 2017 Bassmasters Classic.
Rory Herndon, President of Xpress Boats said that he is most excited about having Sky- lar on board running our top of the line Xclusive Series X21 high performance aluminum bass boat in this years Classic and Elite Series. The choice to run an Xpress was an easy decision for Skylar, as Xpress Boats has over 50 years of experience innovating and per- fecting the manufacturing process including its Hyper-Lift® Pad Hull. The Hyper-Lift® hull design is capable of performing flawlessly in all conditions whether it be shallow, rough, while providing the angler with a smooth, safe, dry ride. Xpress is the only aluminum manufacturer capable of running the large 4 stroke engines like the Yamaha 250SHO with performance in most cases superior to comparable glass boats. Coupled with best in class components, performance and fishability, this is a win / win not only for Skylar but other competitive fisherman wanting the best of all worlds at a fraction of the cost.
Skylar stated that this is the beginning of an “Epic” paradigm shift for the elite series and competitive angling. I am ecstatic to be part of the Xpress Boats family and the future of high performance aluminum bass boats at this level.
Xpress Boats is family owned and operated by the Herndon family since 1966. Nearly 50 years ago in an old schoolhouse in Friendship, AR Kermit Bryant’s dream was to develop the original “all-welded” aluminum boat. Today Xpress operates out of a state of the art manufacturing facility in Hot Springs, AR producing top of the line hunting and fishing boats for just about any application.
