The 2 Shea is a 2007 open fisherman from Southport Boatworks, professionally outfitted by Waters Marine Capabilities. With an overall length of 31 feet and a 10.6 foot beam, this boat is a superior fishing and diving vessel. The design is a perfect combination of comfort, safety, and speed. These boats are built strong and tested off the North Carolina coast, which is known for its unpredictable and sometimes dangerous seas.
Southport boats boast a reverse chime and huge Carolina flair to ensure the driest rides in any condition. Combine that with a foam-filled hull, the result is an incredibly smooth ride in an unsinkable boat.
Comfort: Plenty of comfortable and functional seating/leaning on board including a massive cushioned “coffin” box and wrap-around cockpit bolsters. Other creature comforts include a full bathroom, a 6 disk CD player/Sirius satellite radio, and an oversized hard top that provides lots of shade from the powerful Florida rays.
Safety: Safety is always our first concern. In addition to the foam core hull that makes this an unsinkable boat, the 2 Shea is equipped with the finest electronics suite on the market, including: high quality Raymarine multifunction fish finder, chart plotter, navigation, and a 48 mile radar (which also helps track and avoid those pesky afternoon showers). We are also equipped with a state-of-the-art ePIRB with internal GPS locator, multiple compass and fire extinguisher, backup GPS devices, first aid equipment (including oxygen), far exceeding the US Coast Guard requirements for charter vessels.
Speed: Twin 250 4-Stroke Yamaha engines power the 2 Shea to give her the ability to reach 55 mph or “cruise” quietly at 40 mph…all without those nasty diesel fumes found on many other offshore boats.
Regardless of whether you are dropping your lines from or taking a plunge over the side, you are sure to be impressed by this testimony to a perfect blend of form and function.
