Davis began to build its first express models back in the early 80's for hardcore tuna fishermen in the northeast. At the time, manufacturers were not building large express boats.

Due to the popularity of its 45' and 48' Express Models, Davis decided to reintroduce its 52' Express Model. The 52' Davis combines luxurious cruising amenities a world-class offshore fishing platform with features that include a very large tournament style cockpit, a spacious command bridge, and an accommodation plan with a full-width second stateroom, with private head and shower.

To ensure that production keeps up with demand, Davis has just completed construction of new fiberglass molds and tooling for the 52 Express. Unlike most larger Carolina-style sportfishing yachts, Davis method of construction utilizes fiberglass and composite materials only, no wood. All Davis boats feature a mirror-like Gelcoat finish. True to the Davis tradition, the new 52 Express relies upon an exaggerated bow flare and knife-sharp entry to deliver a ride that is extremely soft and dry. The Davis engineering team has made several unique improvements to the express model including a hydraulic lift system for the helm electronics box, under seat bridge storage, and engine room access, through the cockpit engine room ventilation, and a Gelcoat exterior finish. Visibility from the teak helm pod and the surrounding command bridge is outstanding at any speed. The air conditioned bridge deck offers two L-shaped seating areas with a hydraulic lift system to access the expansive storage available beneath. The helm area also features an integral fiberglass cabinet with a refrigerator and ice maker as well as a teak folding leaf table. The tournament cockpit features a walk-through tuna door, transom fish box, high volume scuppers, custom corner hawse pipes, a large console freezer with a second console baitwell, a huge underdeck fish box, recessed electrical services and washdown systems, built in tackle storage with drawers, and engine room access on centerline. Unlike most builders of semi-custom sportfishing yachts, Davis does not require milestone or progress payments to fund construction. Davis truly offers the best of all worlds...a legendary Carolina hull design, fiberglass with composite construction, and the ability to customize each vessel to meet the most demanding specification.

For those who prefer a bridge boat, Davis offers the same classic looks, performance and fishability in its new 52 Flybridge Sportfisherman.
