Southport Boats adds New York dealer

Southport Boats, a division of Maritime Marine Group LLC, is expanding its nationwide sales reach into the Long Island Sound area with the addition of Lighthouse Marina to its dealer network.

Lighthouse Marina, of Aquebogue, N.Y., will represent Southport Boats' entire line of 27-foot and 29-foot center console and express fishing boats throughout New York’s Long Island.

Lighthouse Marina will be showcasing Southport Boats' newest model, the 29FE, which Southport will debut in September at the Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show. A 29FE will be available for sea trial at Lighthouse Marina in October.

A preview of the 29FE is available online at

"The team at Lighthouse Marina takes pride in providing an impeccable facility and focuses on providing customers with exemplary service and attention to detail," Skip Robinson, managing director of Southport Boats, said in a statement. "We are confident that our new dealer will deliver the same first-class experience to our customers that Southport Boats is known for."

Lighthouse Marina is a second-generation full-service marina, family-owned and operated by Alex and Christine Galasso.
