stepped up to a better bigger boat. had a bass tracker for about 8 years and decided to pull the trigger.
picked this up about 3 months ago. 2020, 22ft xpress with 175 yamaha sho 4 stroke, jack plate, i pilot 80lb and helix 7, sea deck flooring. got 53 mph out of so far. had a bad experience with the dealer, but an email to xpress straightened them out. grabbed my boat and will never be back to that dealer.
already have put a ton of fish in the boat.

I had the 2004 version of that boat with a Yamaha 225 4 stroke, had it into the 60’s but generally kept it around 35. Great boats! Yours looks very nice

I had my mind set on a aluminum center console and almost bought a ranger bay but found this express at this dealer.
I went over there and looked at it and said i want to buy it. well it seems like the owner is the only one who knows how to sell a boat. I was told to go home and fill out credit app online, and the owner will call me. I did that and for almost a week of calling them and leaving messages, nobody would ever call me back, i was mad and started looking online for this same boat everywhere with no luck. i emailed express and told them the owner of this dealer must have to much money cause he doesnt seem to care about selling me this boat. within an hr he finally calls me.
did everything over the phone went and got my boat and never looked back

Nice. When I looked at that first picture, for a minute there I thought you had the world's tallest power pole.

I thought the same thing, it would have been good down to about 50 feet.

Congrats! Looks like a great design.
