Some folks chase the latest rage, while others look for the best in proven performers. Blackwater’s new 36 SF should appeal to the latter, which includes offshore anglers seeking a serious fishing platform.The 36’s relatively narrow (10-foot) beam for its length (36 feet, 2 inches) allows the vessel to slice through irreverent seas. The sharp bow entry of this performance hull tapers to a 24-degree deadrise at the transom. The hull also gains speed without compromising stability thanks to a triangular pad aft.
Each Blackwater is custom built to the owner’s specifications. Among the many popular options that anglers can order are three plumbed livewells — two in the transom and one in the deck ahead of the center console. All three wells are fed using a massive sea chest. Family anglers can add creature comforts such as bow and stern foldaway seats. All Blackwaters come with fully insulated fish boxes and lockable rod storage.
