Pro-Line 35 Express Captain's Report

A Tournament Ready Walkaround That Delivers a Big Punch

By Capt. Rob Smith

This year’s Pro-Line 35 Express will surely be one of the favorites to hunt the big fish. Well-known for their tournament-ready design, Pro-Line gets you out on the fish and back quick. Thirty-nine years of innovation and design help insure you will be pleased with the response and handling of this proven design.

The sharp bow entry of the 35 slices the waves with ease, and softens the ride. Topside, the boat has protective high stainless rails and a bow pulpit with anchor roller, standard windlass and line locker to starboard. Because you will be happy to go out in most any condition, the 35 has standard twin wipers so you and your navigation officer will have a clear view. If you’re a serious angler, you will want to opt for a hardtop, like the fiberglass one we had on our test model. It is important to have protection from the sun, and the older I get, the more I understand that. This top also adds additional lighting and ventilation into the cockpit as well as additional room for electronics. Outriggers and towers are also options you will want to consider. The windshield on our test model also had a nice power vent for additional air.

Rugged Fishing Features Throughout

Moving down the toe rail from bow to the cockpit, the fit is a bit tight for my wide feet, but the handholds make it safer and the design maximizes the interior space. In the cockpit, this 35 had a great aft bench seat that took seconds to deploy or store. It is hinged into the stern wall and even has drink holders built into it. The stern wall has three outboard rod holders for trolling off the stern, and to starboard is a transom walkthrough. A transom shower was just outside the door to rinse off after swimming or a dive off the optional dive ladder.

Gunwale tops have additional rod holders to maximize your trolling capacity and are wide enough to step on safely when boarding. Rod racks are in the gunwale walls and access panels and doors allow quick access to the fuel/water separators, batteries and a floor panel gets you to the optional genset. The aft facing bench seat is actually the tackle center with storage doors, tackle organizers and hook organizers. The lighted baitwell is built into the back side of the helm station for easy access to everyone working lines in the cockpit.

At the Helm

A large L-shaped bench provides plenty of room to stretch out and relax while trolling or to enjoy trading stories with your driver as you head out and back to the fishing grounds. Ventilated storage underneath allow you to keep your life jackets handy and to keep them dry. You have lots of room to put your portable GPS and other loose items in the top of the companion station. Over on the helm side, there is a comfortable helm chair with plenty of leg room for stand-up or sit-down driving. The top half of the dash is open for LCD panel displays, and for digital instrument gauges like the Honda gauges on our test model. Outlets for portable instruments are also handy at the helm. The hydraulic steering and electronic throttle and shift on our test boat made for near effortless handling. I really enjoyed just reaching the speed I wanted and hitting the Synch switch! That will make the long runs a lot more tolerable.

The Cabin

Stepping down the flying steps into the cabin, you enter a space like most cabin cruisers parked at the docks. The head is mounted just inside on the port side and has a full vanity with pull-out shower handle, vacuflush head and portal for fresh air and light. Just forward of the head is a compact galley. This galley has a good amount of storage for dry goods above, a microwave, sink and cooktop. Drawers for utensils and a refrigerator are below. The V-berth has a standard flat screen TV with DVD to entertain the troops at anchor. A compact dinette and settee are mounted across from the galley and has the stereo mounted above it and the power distribution panel on the stern wall behind doors. A crawl-in berth is under the cockpit adding more sleeping capacity when needed.

Specs and Ride

I tested the 35 Express in some choppy waters in Miami, Florida and found she responded well slicing through the big wakes thrown our way. She was a bit slow to plane at 6.8 seconds and up to 30mph in 13.8 seconds, but she delivered a tournament top speed of 49mph with twin 225-hp Honda outboards. The 35 Express measures 35’6” LOA with a beam of 12’6” and weighs about 11,200 lbs. dry. Fuel capacity is 320 gallons, fresh water capacity is 60 gallons, and she has a draft of 25 inches. Maximum power for this model is rated at 900 horsepower. As we saw on our test ride, the Pro-Line 35 Express delivered on offshore performance, fishing features, and room for the whole family to enjoy.
