Manufacturer Provided Description

The Blackwater 29 combines the finest elements in yacht finishing to provide an excellent Bay-style motor yacht for cruising with friends and occasional overnights. Because it combines so much in a boat so easily managed, it has become our most popular boat, and there is typically at least one Blackwater 29 in production. Our clients choose their hull, deck and non-skid colors to compliment the teak toe rail, coaming cap, handrails and our signature Mathews Brothers eyebrow. The open cockpit has fixed side windows and fixed windshields with opening windshields an option. Standard power is a 230hp Yanmar, with 250hp and 300hp versions optional. The cockpit has twin pedestal seating as a standard with an optional aft seat. The hinged engine box provides ample table surface or additional seating capacity. Several clients have chosen to add a fold-down teak table on the aft end of the engine box, and we are pleased to provide cockpit cabinetry as an option to fit the needs of the owners. The spacious interior cabin is customized with cherry or mahogany. Four opening side ports and three overhead hatches provide ample natural light. The galley, trimmed in teak, has several storage cabinets, a stainless steel sink, and a heavily insulated ice box. The galley can be upgraded to include all the comforts of home, including a two burner stove, microwave, Corian counters, refrigeration, and a wine storage area. The enclosed head trimmed in teak with hot and cold water has a built-in sink and shower. We provide two deep cycle batteries, a compass, a 12v outlet and VHF radio as a standard with a generator, HVAC and a stereo as options. Storage includes areas under the v-berth, a hanging locker in the cabin, and areas under the optional aft seat and optional storage/coolers under the deck sole. As with all our custom boats, we begin with the standard items and design the options and additions that best suit your needs.
