Very nice upgrades, well cared for. This very sexy machine is known for, amongst other things, it's deep-V hull, and props. Blackfin props are 56" part and set down deep where they take big bites of water like they should. She also comes with a Glendinning Engine Synchronizer to keep those Twin Caterpillars 3208's (which run great) efficiently in tune with each other. The ride and handling characteristics of this Blackfin are demonstrably superior to any comparable boat of the same size. The reason is simple, weight and balance.
For over 40 years, Blackfin Yachts have become a legend among avid boaters. Blackfin's 33' Flybridge was designed for cruising anglers by cruising anglers. In 1973 Carl Herndon and the Blackfin team began carving a niche for themselves as a premier builder of sport fishing yachts, offering exceptional safety, dependability and the confidence that comes with owning a well thought out, well constructed, top quality vessel.
The ride and handling characteristics of a Blackfin are superior compared to boats of the same size. Carefully considering weight and balance, with the modern deep-V hull design, built to the heaviest laminate standards in the industry, then, strategically place the engines for optimum balance, and the result will be superior ride and handling every time.
Size for size, a Blackfin will usually exceed the weight of a competitor's model. Since most mechanical components weigh basically the same, the additional weight can be attributed to massive fiberglass laminate.
What does Blackfin have to say about Structural Integrity;
We are always pleased to tell consumers that Blackfin has never had a hull failure of any type.
Blackfin hulls are 100% fiberglass with the exception of the stringers which are encapsulated in fiberglass. We do not believe in the use of "core" materials in the underwater portion of the hull. It is set into wet fiberglass, bonded 360 degrees, clamped into place and allowed to cure overnight. The deck is then installed on the hull in a show box type overlap, all gaps and seams are filled with a high quality flexible bedding compound and then fastened mechanically with stainless steel screws and bolts. Blackfins laminate design and content is regarded as one of the strongest in the industry. A vinylester osmosis barrier is built into the skin layers to eliminate the possibility of hull blisters. Then, a combination of biaxial and triaxial materials are applied for optimum strength, along with the use of directional S-glass in running/planing area.
The motors on this Blackfin are in great shape! The Twin 3208T Caterpillar diesels @ 320 hp each. Recognized by boat owners as the standard in reliability and serviceability. Over the years, this engine design has maintained its lead by establishing a proven track record of power and durability.
No outdrives. ZF transmissions. Service due at 4000 hours (current engine hours 3915). Engines serviced (oil and filters at 3900 hours). Walker AirSeps on both engines.
Additionally, 300 authorized Cat marine service locations in North America, Mexico, and the Caribbean, and excellent customer service, make it easy to access parts and service. Although we all know that there is no such thing as a perfect used boat, this boat has been well maintained, and she is now anxious to get out there and help you to create a new chapter in your life.
