Some opinions noted online:
"awesome hull! really has a soft dry ride. I was in a 4 foot chop bracing myself to pound hard but that never came. Never been on a boat with a softer reentry. "
"She can slow cruise at 20 kts burning 13GPH (3.2k rpm), medium cruise at 30kts burning 18gph (4k rpm), and hits 43kts wide open burning 36gph"
"I was close to a R********r 26, but am totally convinced that this is a finer machine. Both in amenities, layout, and I thing the ride is about the same. If anything I really like the low-speed planing ability of it. Keeps it light on fuel consumption"
"Southports are great boats and are every bit the equal of a R********r but much better suited to family boating."
"The ride on the 26 is awesome. Super dry and super stable, they eat up the chop. R********r might've developed the flair in their center consoles, but this has twice as much to it. They're unbelievable in a head sea and just as remarkable in a following with it's deep vee. The boat comes out of the hole and on plane FAST (under 5 seconds). With 250's your gonna top out around 50kts and cruise in the mid 30's pretty economically. Just to see what it could do, we took a hard turn at 45kts not that you'll ever need too but not once did the back end skip. Absolutely one of the best riding boats I've ever been on."
