Express Cruiser boats

An Express Cruiser is a fast cruising boat. Usually, it falls between 25-50 feet in length. It often has a sporty, sleek look that’s focused more on performance than luxurious/spacious accommodation. Still, Express Cruisers also can satisfy family and overnight needs. They include a full head, a galley, two to six berths and cover from the sun. Express Cruisers usually do not have flybridges and are operated from single stations on the main decks. There are large open areas near the steering area and the back of the boat.

How are Express Cruisers built?

Most Express Cruisers are built with fiberglass, though some utilize carbon-fiber. Modified V and semi-displacement hulls are the most common types of hulls as Express Cruises are made to ride on top of the water at cruising speeds around 30 mph.

What type of engines power Express Cruisers?

While some Express Cruisers are built for acceleration and high speeds, others prioritize fuel efficiency and comfort. Gasoline engines and stern drives often power smaller Express Cruisers. Larger vessels rely on straight diesel inboards, though pod drives are becoming very popular due to better handling and increased fuel efficiency. Twin or more outboards also are becoming more prevalent as they improve maintenance in salt water.

What optional equipment is available for Express Cruisers?

Express Cruisers normally include air conditioners, power generators, a galley, full head and berths with bunk beds. Popular optional items include joysticks, which allow for easy maneuvering by simultaneously operating the engines and the bow and stern thrusters, and enhanced air conditioning units , especially in warmer, humid climates. Seakeepers also are becoming more popular. They stabilize the vessel by using a gyroscopic system that counteracts a boat's natural motion.
