The Southport 272 offers the ideal combination of options and layouts to be the perfect boat for any boater, either as a serious offshore fishing machine or as a family day-cruiser that doesn’t look out of place fishing the rips.

Designed specifically for the “no-nonsense” hardcore fisherman, the Southport 272 TE includes everything the serious fisherman needs and expects for the inshore and offshore fishing trip. The newly designed aft live well holds enough bait to keep the lines out all day, while the insulated and macerated 80-gallon Forward Coffin Box and twin 27-gallon In-Deck Fishboxes aft provide more than enough space to keep the day’s catch on ice for the run home.

Or perhaps the ideal day on the water has nothing to do with heading offshore and it would rather be spent running out to a nearby island or to a quiet harbor for a cruise with family and friends. The Southport 272 FE, with forward seating and optional sunpad, is ideally suited for those days where the only goal is to relax and enjoy a peaceful day on the water.

No matter which layout you choose, your 272 will always deliver the exceptionally dry and stable ride of the Southport Deep-Vee Hunt Hull, keeping you and your fishing buddies or family and friends dry and comfortable even if the conditions get rough for the ride home.
