Southport 29 Express

The Southport 29 EX is loaded with comfortable features for cruising and functional features for fishing and offshore adventures. A thoughtfully designed powder coated aluminum frame with a fiberglass hardtop gives the 29 EX its signature look, complimented by the graceful Carolina style bow and wide flair. The cockpit contains a 145 gallon fish box, 50 gallon livewell and aft bait rigging station complete with an insulated bait box, fresh/salt water sink and cutting board. A starboard side transom door provides easy access to the cockpit from which one can step up to the wide gunwales to easily access the bow. With an adjustable helm seat, portside bench seat and port and starboard aft facing seats everyone can find a comfortable place to sit where they will be sheltered from the wind or nasty weather.

The cabin area features a forward V-berth area with drop-down filler table and cushion and an aft berth. The full functioning galley has a freshwater sink, microwave oven, electric stove top and refrigerator. The walk-in head offers a fresh water sink, pull-out shower, inline hot water heater and a marine head with solar-powered vent. You have to experience the 29 EX to appreciate the versatility and comfort this boat has to offer.
