Xpress Boats H22 Bay

The Hyper-Lift Bay Boat series by Xpress is part of the company’s all-welded offerings, and this high-performance pad hull is the foundation for the H22 Bay.

The unibody, all-welded hull of the Xpress Bay is built of 5052 marine-grade aluminum with longitudinal rib construction and has no rivets, so it’s rock solid and easily handles rough seas, keeping its occupants dry while running waters in search of redfish, trout, tarpon and other species that call the coast home. And the foam-injected hull creates a quiet, rock-solid ride.

The boat stretches 22 feet from bow to stern, with a 67-inch bottom and 95-inch beam that enhance fishing stability. And the 30-gallon fuel tank means no limitations on where you can go.

Interior features include large fishing decks and plenty of storage, including beneath the rear jump seats, and the decks are topped with its proprietary Xtreme Coat durable, non-skid finish.

And Xpress is now offering a new console with storage behind the backrest cushion and a new fiberglass TM battery access door.

The fiberglass center console includes a baitwell, a fold-down grab rail, a removable windshield, a seat cushion, a back rest and a kick panel. An aerated livewell in the back deck can provide more space for bait, and the Minn Kota Riptide 46 trolling motor offers plenty of power for a full day of stalking your prey.

While buyers can choose from different color and stripe options, and feature packages to customize the H22, standard features include an all aluminum Backtrack trailer with a 100,000-mile or six-year maintenance-free limited hub warranty and corrosion free wiring.
