True to its Carolina heritage, the new 33 Express from Rampage has exceptional bow flare, a sharp entry and a 13-foot beam. Featuring prop pockets that provide a mere 29 inches of draft and afford greater drive-line efficiency, the 33 Express is based on a Rampage/Donald Blount Sea Control Hull.
Offered with nine different engine options in either gas or diesel, including Cummins’ Quantum Series engines, the 33 is a versatile performer. Its center-helm design affords excellent visibility and a tilt-out pod for easy wiring access. Port lounge seating features a forward swivel seat. The cockpit can be customized to suit the needs of the owner, and includes the ability to configure the transom with a live well or stowaway bench seat. To complete the forward end of the cockpit, the owner can choose any two of the following modules: bait-prep/tackle center, live well, entertainment/wet bar or bench seat.
For added safety and comfort, the walkaround is a full eight inches wide. The helm also features an optional air outlet for cool or warm air for year-round comfort. Belowdecks the 33 Express has Corian countertops, stainless sink, refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, storage drawers and cabinets. It sleeps six, with a roomy 6′ 6″ queen-size fold-out sofa in the master berth. The forward vee-dinette seats five adults and converts to four 6′ 6″ bunks or two bunks above and a full vee-berth below.
