Design and Construction
Pro-Line engaged in extensive market research among its owners and determined that in addition to fishing, many of them like to entertain guests aboard their boats. That's why the company created the express model. It provides plenty of room, loads of open air and lots of seating for visitors. However, unlike the Pro-Line 3250, which was designed as a luxurious cruiser with fishing amenities "thrown in," the 30 Express qualifies as a fishing boat first, which was designed around serious angling, then luxury amenities were added.
The cabin sleeps two in a large berth forward and a stand-up head. The woodwork and upholstery, however, lend an air of elegance that the distaff side will truly appreciate. Just wipe your feet before going below.
Little in the way of entertaining can't be done up on deck. A sink, ice maker and conversation-accommodating seating make this a wonderful boat to just relax aboard.
Pro-Line uses its own proprietary blend of MaxGuard gelcoat, which contains titanium dioxide for maximum prevention of yellowing or chalking. Add to that the company's FIST (Fiberglass Integrated Structural Technology) construction methods, which include a high-density high-compression foam coring (Divinycell) in the stringers, transom and all hull compartments, and you get greater strength and sound-proofing. If the system didn't work, Pro-Line could never afford to offer its standard 10-year transferable hull warranty.
A final detail for those who appreciate quality can be found in the upholstery. Each cushion seam is French-stitched, which means that seams are run through the machine three times instead of once. It looks much better and lasts like iron.
The new Pro-Line 30 Express fits the family who loves serious fishing but also wants luxury, comfort and the ability to impress their friends back at the dock.
