The 33 Express (called the 3310 Sportfish in 1999) is a rugged inboard-powered canyon runner—the very first inboard design from Pro-Line—whose upmarket price tag came as a surprise considering the company’s reputation for affordable, budget-friendly boats. Heavily built on a modified-V hull with a solid fiberglass bottom, the 33 is obviously meant for fishing although her roomy helm deck and comfortable interior work well for cruising. An impressive list of standard amenities included transom and in-deck fish boxes (insulated), 35-gallon livewell, bait prep center, fresh/raw washdowns, gunnel rod holders, cockpit rod storage racks, trim tabs, molded bow pulpit, cockpit bolsters, and transom door. Below deck, the interior of the 33 Express is arranged with a convertible dinette/V-berth forward, a full galley and enclosed head to port, and a cleverly shaped pedestal dining table lowers to create a huge berth. Like most express fishing boats, the helm deck lifts hydraulically for access to the engines. Twin 350hp Cat (or Yanmar) diesels cruise the Pro-Line 33 Express in the high 20s and reach a top speed in the mid 30s.
