The prototype for this new version will be delivered in Spring of 2017. However Sea Trials were conducted in September of 2016 and the performance was spectacular! This powering option results in a boat that is shoal draft (18 inches!), has a wide open cockpit suitable for a wide range of seating options, is quiet, and can achieve speeds of anywhere between 15 and 40 knots depending on the power specified! The boat will have the same classic good looks as well as the outstanding seakeeping characteristics of the other Southport 30 Versions. The photos shown here of the prototype in construction and during sea trials – please excuse its appearance – it will be perfect when delivered!
We are so excited about this powering option! We think that anywhere from twin 60's to twin 250's (like the prototype) would make an outstanding boat depending on the expected use.
