The Midnight Express 43 Open (43′ LOA, 12’6″ beam) features a true twin-stepped hull that produces minimal bow rise while getting on plane. Built with Midnight Express’ exclusive infusion-molded and cored structure across the entire boat, it allows for a lighter and faster yet stronger and more fuel-efficient vessel. Enhanced by an Integrated Spray Reduction system, the 43 Open stays drier because the new shape at the bow catches spray and pushes it back down. Power options range from quad 300- to 667-hp outboards and even up to five 400-hp outboards with top speeds between 72 and 100 mph depending upon the power.
The Miami-based builder’s innovative design extends beyond the performance to the accessories and usability as well, with a 100-percent carbon-fiber infused hardtop and side dive door with an integrated ladder, and a cabin loaded with comfort features and a fully digital control system powered with Garmin touchscreens. The entire digital control system is operated with wireless remotes to allow the user to select different lighting modes or to turn the battery switches on and off without climbing into a tight space.
