Take the helm of the all new 48 Express, and we will show you it can do what no other sportfishing boat can do. Punching through 6-foot head seas at 35 knots, its beautifully flared bow throws off every drop of water before it gets to the windshield. Try that on one of our competitor's boats, and you'll be under a waterfall. The power steering makes it easy to change direction, sprinting forward or backing down. And when you have to head out to the canyon, you'll know you'll get there with plenty of time to put your lines in, even when conditions make our competitor's boats head for cover, thanks to a 30-knot cruising speed. Optional power gets her over 37-knots. Everything starts with the bottom hull shape. All other things-the tumblehome, the flare-are all derivative of the bottom, and it's very effective. Designed in collaboration with noted naval architect Donald L. Blount, the Buddy Davis 48 Express is a masterpiece in seakeeping performance. Run her hard. She doesn't pound. She won't shake, rattle, roll or leave you wet. Down swell, she behaves and goes where you want, never steering by the bow.
