I received my cap and 2 shirts I had ordered from your apparel site today. The delivery time was fast and the items are of excellent quality. I am proud to be an Xpress boat owner and will wear my new Xpress branded apparel with pride. I do plan to order more merchandise in the future.
Also, included in my order was a free Xpress Boats sticker/decal.
Many Thanks, Danny B.
A true testament to the great handling Xpress builds in their boats.
I had a tournament on the Choctawhatchee River in North Florida and the river has many turns and few long stretches. I started out number 16. A Bullet with a Mercury 300HP started out 6th. in the 20 miles we traveled I was able to catch up with the Bullet and keep up with him due to how well I could hold speed in the corners. I was able to average 50MPH in the corners and 64MPH in the straights. (Two adults and full gear with a full tank of gas) I have not been able to make that boat skip in the corners where previous aluminum boats I have had in the past would literally slide around the corners making it unsafe over 30MPH. Thanks again for designing a boat that meets my needs.
Not only is Xpress exceptional from a performance perspective, the usability and practicality are unmatched. I have taken my Xpress 20 miles through East Bay and Escambia Bay in 4-6ft white cap chop to watch the Blue Angels perform. I averaged 18MPH yet I felt fully confident seeing how well the bow would stay up and bust right through the rollers. I am not suggesting that everyone should do this but I had the confidence in my boat and its capabilities.
I love the fact that I can fish with my Dad on the back deck and when he moves to the edge to flip a plastic I can barely feel the boat shift. In my previous Alumacraft Super Bandit it would make me cringe as I would feel like I was getting thrown out. Both standing on the edge to flip or pitch was out of the question in the old boat.
The X19 is very practical for recreation as well. I can pull tubes and kneeboards for the family and then take it through less than a foot of water to hang out and swim at the springs in Vernon FL.
From a styling perspective, I am getting constant compliments on the looks of the boat whether it is on the trailer or on the water.
Thanks again for building a great boat to meet all of my needs.

I wanted you to know how much I have enjoyed my boat Xpress Bayou 18. We were able to get 3 of us and a dog into our hunting hole in 1 trip here in Marksville, LA. I absolutely Love my boat. I just wanted to thank you again for the opportunity to do business with Bill and his son from Wild Bill's Boats in Mead, OK. It was a pleasure to meet the two of you, and I will recommend you to all my partners.
I bought my 24' center console bay boat in June, 2012. I've taken this boat to Lake Powell in Arizona / Utah, the Gulf of Mexico and I live on Lake Arbuckle. I have been in rough water and the boat handles beautifully. I have owned several other boats that were much more expensive but did not out perform this boat. Wild Bill makes sure that when you purchase a boat from him you receive exactly the boat you want. He goes above and beyond to make your dream boat a reality...and he does it with great style!
The boat is everything I was looking for and your help in choosing the model, specific upgrades and finishing touches made my boat buying experience a truly great one. I have already sent several potential boat buyers your way, and I will continue to do so. You and your son were very helpful, but not the "pushy" salesman I've ran into at other dealerships.
The only problem I see for you is that you did so good helping me get the perfect boat, I probably won't need another one for quite some time! Xpress is a top notch boat, and Wild Bill's Boats is a top notch dealership.
I recently purchased a new Xpress H51 with a 70hp Yamaha. This past weekend we launched it at Degray Lake and I was quite surprised at the way the boat handeled rough water. The ride was controlled and relatively stable thanks to the hull design. No rattles or squeaks during the ride. I'd have to say Xpress has done their homework! I shopped the competition and am satisfied I made the right choice. The Yamaha 70hp gives plenty of power for planeout and there's plenty of power for cruising.
Bought a new Xpress H22 Bay in February 2012 from Bill and Shane at Wild Bill's boats on Lake Texoma. This is the second Xpress boat that I have purchased from them. After the great experience I had the first time around, I didn't hesitate to head right back down there to pick up the H22 Bay from them! Heck, they even met me on a Sunday so I could look at boats. Bill also spent quite a bit of time tracking down accessories to make sure it was rigged just like I wanted it.
My family and I love the H22 Bay, having upgraded from an Xpress H17. Whether we're crappie fishing, jugging for cats, or just riding around the lake, it is the perfect boat for us. It's the driest boat I've ridden in and can handle 2-3 foot waves in the lake with no problem, while having a draft shallow enough to sneak back into the creeks. With the Xpress Hyperlift hull, you'd forget you're in an aluminum boat except for the fuel savings and extra speed you gain over fiberglass!! The Xtreme coating on the interior is great too, we can just hose it out when we get home and we are ready for another trip.
Every time I am at the ramp or stop at a gas station, someone comes over to take a look at the boat. With the alumuminum BackTrack trailer under the H22B, it is one sharp rig to pull down the road!
