You have to admit, the Blackwood 27 doesn’t look like most center consoles of this size. Its combination of classic lines and modern aerodynamic styling have created quite a pleasing aesthetic. Standard equipment includes electric trolling motors attached to high-speed Lenco trim tabs – all recessed into the transom – allowing you to silently sneak up on unsuspecting fish or enjoy total stillness on a sunset harbor cruise with your friends. Running at speed promises equal enjoyment since the flared bow and hard chines will keep you dry while the deep-V hull smoothes out head seas.
Blackwood builds its boats using what it calls HPI, which stands for high-pressure injection. It creates an outer hull of fiberglass mat, biaxial fiberglass fabric and DuPont Kevlar over the entire bottom for extreme strength and puncture resistance. Between the outer hull and the equally strong inner liner, Blackwood injects waterproof closed-cell-composite foam. The company claims its exclusive technology creates a strong, durable, flex-free, unitized structure that cuts through waves silently and smoothly to deliver a comfortable and confident sense of security. Additionally, Blackwood feels so strongly about the superiority of its construction technology that it offers a lifetime hull warranty!
As you’d expect from such a beautiful boat, the appointments are nothing if not first-rate. For example, the stereo system includes an iPod connection. The extremely comfortable helm seats feature dual footrests. The custom hardtop comes standard. You can rotate the LED spreader lights to focus light where you need it. You get not one but three recirculating livewells, all with high-speed pickups and underwater LED lights that not only add ambience at night, but do a great job of attracting fish too.
This dynamic boat also promises to be virtually indestructible. If only more products could say the same.
