The 28 ft. Southport Center Console is the best riding, driest, and stable platform in its class. The wide beam and weight structure allows you to run on a plane down to 13 kts. with very little bow rise. The boat is small enough to fish inshore and large enough to make safe and comfortable passage to the Bahamas.
Drifting is unusually comfortable for this size boat, you can control the angle of the drift without putting the engines in gear and the wide beam allows for very little roll sitting in the trough.
Most of the hours put on the boat are sitting still while sword fishing. Engines have been meticulously maintained with 100 hr. tune-ups and regular flushing of the heads.
Engines turn over instantly and virtually silent when under way.
There is ample room for the hardcore fisherman to work the pit at ease and plenty of comfortable space and seating for family fun on the weekends.
Boat cruises at a comfortable 4200 rpms at 30 kts. burning 16-18 gph.
Push her up to 4800 rpm and cruise at 36 kts. burning 25gph.
