Ocean Yachts 37 Express
The newest Ocean Yacht, the 37 Express, is scheduled to hit the water this summer, and she is sure to carry on this builder’s tradition of rugged, attractively priced sportfishing boats. Using the same hull as the popular 37 Billfish, the Express basically loses that model’s flying bridge but retains its comfortable interior appointments, such as bunks and a sofa, dedicated rod stowage, a nicely equipped galley, and an enclosed head and shower. The helm deck provides more seating as well as engine room access, while the cockpit has all the amenities you’d expect of a midsize battlewagon, including tackle stowage, a bait freezer, multiple fishboxes, a sink, mezzanine seating, and a transom door for hauling in whoppers. With all these features and more coupled with Ocean’s solid, seakindly reputation, the 37 Express just may turn out to be a bit of a whopper herself.
