Manufacturer Provided Description

The Rampage 38 Express has been designed and solidly built specifically to handle rough weather. The core of the hull is made of pre-impregnated end-grain balsa and features double bulkhead construction providing superior durability and insulating qualities. The center console helm is hinged for easy access to wiring and features full instrumentation with plenty of room for optional electronics, a high windshield with an electrically actuated center-vent, and spacious L-shaped seating.

This boat has great fishability with two giant fish boxes, a custom 55-gallon baitwell, and a swing-out transom door with top lid. Two built-in tackle centers offer a total of eight, large slide-out storage drawers with adjustable dividers, gasketed and lockable covers, a molded fiberglass sink with spray nozzle, a cutting board, and a cooler box.

The 38 Express is also quick to plane thanks to her efficient 19-degree deep-V hull. With a 400-gallon fuel capacity, this boat offers excellent cruising range. A power actuated engine hatch makes engine inspections and service easy, and features double electric rams, a full fiberglass liner, and diamond plate flooring.

Below decks, the 38 Express features cherry wood finish and gold hardware throughout; a U-shaped dinette that converts to a second double berth; a spacious and comfortable forward double V-berth with rod storage; a well-equipped galley with stainless steel sink, refrigerator, microwave / convection oven, and ample storage; and a full-sized head featuring a tile floor, a separate standup shower with circular door, and a built-in vanity with sink, and storage.
