Southport 28 Center Console

The Southport 28 Center Console was born for four-strokes.
The Southport 28 Center console stores rods galore.

The 28 Center Console from Southport Boat Works was designed to handle the weight of four-stroke outboard engines. Based on the Hunt4 hull technology by C. Raymond Hunt Associates, the new 28 reaches speeds of 53 miles per hour with twin 250-horsepower Yamaha four-stroke outboards.

Rigged to fish, the 28 has three gunwale-mount rod holders on each side, racks for ten rods under the gunwales, six more rod holders across the back of the standard canvas T-Top and additional in-console storage for eight more rods in vertical racks. Walk-through tuna doors flank rigging boxes and cutting boards in the transom. The cockpit deck holds a 38-gallon insulated fish box with macerator drain.

The combination leaning post-rigging station offers both helm- and aft-facing seating while housing a 45-gallon raw-water live well, tackle drawers and a rigging cutting board.

The helm dash features large areas for flush-mounting electronics, while weatherproof toggle switches have backlit labels.

The foredeck has an insulated 157-gallon fishbox with macerator, and a standard anchor and windlass are concealed beneath a hatch. Southport Boat Works; (910) 383-0365; www.southport-boatworks.com
