Handcrafted Welding

After each component has been properly shaped, they are placed in storage racks, ready to be welded into your new Xpress Boat.  Meanwhile, skilled craftsmen begin welding the hull together in preparation of bringing all of the components together to make your new Xpress Boat.  The hull and components are all welded and married together without any rivets and screws.

Painting and Curing

Your new Xpress boat is painted with one of many custom formulated paints offered by Xpress, and moved into one of their enormous temperature controlled ovens to cure the finish. After curing, your new Xpress boat is moved into the Rigging Department where all the final components are installed. Once again, the Quality Control Department inspects your boat.

High-end Hull Construction

Every void in your hull is filled with premium, environmentally-friendly expandable foam. This process adds both strength and flotation to your new Xpress Boat. To ensure peak performance and handling, every hull is checked for smoothness by the Quality Control team. By doing this meticulous inspection, you know your new Xpress boat will effortlessly glide across the water.  With the welding and foam process completed, each new boat is moved into the state of the art paint prep area and a comprehensive cleaning process begins in preparation to painting.

The Original All-Welded Aluminum Boat

It was such a simple concept, but difficult to actually put into practice. Why drill holes on boat hulls and rivet them together? Holes leak, wood rots and your investment deteriorate over the years. Xpress Boats was the first to build by welding, and after tens of thousands of boats built, you will find that the first is still the best. Xpress built a sound foundation that you will appreciate and enjoy for years to come.

The Finest Aluminum

The finest 5052 aluminum alloy arrives at the Xpress Boats plant in coils.  Each aluminum coil is unrolled onto a cutting table where boat components are precision cut using an automated computer-aided drafting (Auto CAD) program. Each individual part of your new Xpress Boat is perfectly cut every time.
