OBX Boatworks 326XP

The 326XP meets rigid standards of performance, sea keeping ability and efficiency while utilizing cutting edge technology and innovative composite construction techniques. Once the design of a semi-custom OBX has been finalized the hull is handcrafted from wood. The plug then serves as the base for composite mold development, which translates to an exact replica of the original design. The final product is nothing short of a true beauty.

The large cockpit of the 326XP provides ample space, while the yacht-like interior sets its own standard for style and comfort. With berths for two, a galley and full size head, this is the perfect day boat or overnight Bahamas cruiser. Initially launching their exquisite 326XP, OBX has followed with center console, express and flybridge models designed for those looking for more than another typical production boat. Keeping the tradition of Carolina boatbuilding alive, OBX Boatworks proudly produces what are arguably some of the industry’s finest sport fishing platforms. Check out the 326XP at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat show and see for yourself. OBX Boatworks, 336.878.9490,
