New duck-boat options

Xpress Boats of Hot Springs, Ark., has expanded its lineup of all-weld duck boats.

First, the company has reintroduced the Hyper-Lift Duck Boat, joining the family of high-performance and durable hunting boats for 2015.

The Hyper-Lift Duck Boat features a pad hull design that will become the standard of high-performance outboard hunting boats. The boat is available in 16- and 18-foot models that come loaded with styling, storage, performance, features and strength.

Xpress Boats’ famed Hyper-Lift hull is the foundation for the HDB. This high-performance boat is capable of an fast, nimble, dry ride. Additionally, its all-welded longitudinal rib system forms the hull and pad as one rock-solid unit.

Along with its superior construction, these boats host a uni-body foam-injected process to eliminate excess noise, exceed Coast Guard flotation requirements and provide maximum stability.

In addition, Xpress also has added the all-new 16-foot DBX model for the price-conscious consumer.

You’ll find the DBX to be a tough, great-performing duck boat built with the same integrity for which every Xpress Boat is known.

An open floor plan and low deck enables waterfowlers to pack loads to and from their hunting destinations safely and securely.

Xpress Boats hunting line includes the XTS, Bayou and the original HDDB Series of all-welded aluminum boats, which includes the new DBX.
