southport 30.

These great boats are well regarded for their performance as well as their traditional good looks. We feel that the Southport 30 stands out from the crowd in the market place due to its unique, elegant, and traditional looks. These qualities married to current state of the art structural, propulsive, sound deadening, and electronic technology makes the Southport 30 the perfect choice for the discriminating owner who wants to stand out from the crowd in a safe, no-compromise Downeast powerboat.

A Southport 30 can be seen by appointment at our shop at any time.

Our Southport 30 is a custom built boat. We work with each owner to ensure complete satisfaction.

Our skills in building world-class quality boats are not limited to the Southport 30. We custom build boats from the keel up (or “from the plans up”), fit out hulls made by others, and perform major refits of existing boats.

Hard Top, Lobster Boat Configuration

   The Hard Top Lobsterboat Version of the Southport 30 has a foam cored fiberglass top and enclosed port side.  Usually the starboard side is left open as is traditional, but this is up to the tastes of the owner.  Custom Sunbrella (canvas) curtains create a dry and secure wheelhouse, truly functional as a three season platform.  The Cabin may include an efficient and functional galley, a “V” berth, and a full head with shower. 

    A custom specification is developed for each owner from a long list of possible accessories.  Some common features:  Anchor Windlass, Bow Thruster,  Full Electronics Suite, Various Seating Options, Galley Accessories, etc.

All Southport 30’s have spacious cockpits, great for entertaining, relaxing or fishing.

Soft Top, Bass Boat Configuration

The Bass Boat Version of the Southport 30 has a Canvas Top on a Stainless Steel Frame behind the swept back two-panel windshield.  This is a convertable and sporty look.  The graceful line of the Bass Boat’s combings descending from the windscreen is, we think, just right.   We hope you will agree that this boat really looks great.

The Cabin includes an efficient and functional galley, “V” Berth, and full head with optional shower.  A custom specification is developed for each owner from a long list of possible accessories.  Some common features:  Anchor Windlass, Bow Thruster,  Full Electronics Suite, Various Seating Options, Galley Accessories, etc.

Open Boat, Launch Version

This great hull is perfectly suited for use as a large launch.  On this page you can see the boat we built some years ago in this configuration.  It was built with lots of glistening mahogany and Teak brightwork as you can see.  I hope you will agree that it would be hard to find a more handsome Center Console launch anywhere in the world.
