Blackwater 36SF

Blackwater Boats may be an unfamiliar name, but trust us when we tell you that this is not your typical center console. This high-class chariot is capable of reaching speeds eclipsing 70 MPH in comfort and style, combining essential elements of performance and fishing features. While stepped hulls are known for their high-speed attributes, perfect weight distribution is required to achieve an ideal ride. Blackwater’s modified V-hull is as fast as any stepped hull, and the product of today’s advancing technologies. Utilizing 100% vinylester resins and 3/4″ Corecell material, the vacuum bagged hull is a thing of beauty. Aesthetic assets include luxurious and elegant fit and finish work. With incredible speed, range and maneuverability, this caged beast is capable of outperforming nearly anything in its class.

Blackwater 36SF

Making her initial debut at the 2010 Miami International Boat Show, the Blackwater 36SF is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best-built boats in the industry. Blackwater’s commitment to details results in the strongest, yet lightest boat possible that provides a comfortable and intuitive fishing experience.

While luxurious appointments are visible at first glance, this is a hardcore tournament-equipped fishing machine. A 400-plus gallon fuel capacity coupled with 200-gallons of livewell storage gives you unparalleled range and fishability for the most demanding day trips and overnight adventures. A masterfully designed console has plenty of space for an array of navigation and fish finding electronics. The custom designed and manufactured T-Top required a special die and press for the powder coated oval pipe work. Recessed overhead console lights and LED floodlights further enhance the sweet looking top with matching trim. A Clarion head unit, 200-watt amp and eight speaker JL audio suite gives you a private concert hall to blast the latest beats. The leaning post features a livewell and Frigid Rigid cooler that’s operated by an automated actuator. Four jump seats in the bow offer increased comfort for family enjoyment without sacrificing fishability.

While extensively customizable, Blackwater’s 36SF is designed for the hardcore fishing enthusiast. Combining an unmatched level of luxury, fishability and innovation, the competition can barely touch Blackwater Boats. The custom 36SF gives you more enjoyment and less hassles, with fewer problems to fix and more time to have fun. Never content standing still, the design and construction is working on the release of a 42 available in center console or express configuration. Blackwater Boats, 786.853.0618,
