Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Blackfin Boats proclaims that its boats feature the best traits of the original Blackfin classic fishing boat, plus the latest in innovative technology. 

Blackfin’s current line ­features center- and dual-­console boats from 22 to 40 feet, built with carbon-­fiber-reinforced hulls. They feature top-of-the-line ­technology such as digital engine monitoring, and pioneering solutions including the Pantographic Smart Door. The company has received NMMA’s prestigious Marine Industry Consumer ­Satisfaction Index award for three consecutive years. Blackfins carry a 10-year structural-hull and a three-year structural-­deck warranty.

Blackfin 400 CC

Blackfin’s new and biggest-­ever center-console answers calls from fans of its 332 CC for more space and features. 

The wide and spacious bow has a large sun pad, high freeboard, and a concealed drum windlass anchor that stylishly drops from a tucked-in position. A window atop the forward console provides light to the cabin below. 

At the helm are two rows of heated seats, three in each row, with the second row elevated for greater visibility. The command center holds two 24-inch Garmin screens, a bow-thruster control, a Zipwake trim-tab control, a JL Audio sound system and Mercury controls, including a joystick. A composite countertop abaft the helm seating can be used as a tackle station and cutting board, or flipped to access a sink and an optional electric grill. 

The oversize T-top carries a rocket launcher and 12 added rod holders, and an integrated molded step accesses the top’s roof and its Gemlux outriggers. 

Within the massive cockpit a large tuna door enables hauling in a big fish or onboarding family and friends. A large floor hatch houses the bilge and provides space for a gyrostabilizer. Two other in-floor hatches can be used as cold storage or fish boxes, with a 70-gallon livewell at the center transom. 

The cabin features LED lights and a couch/berth. A mini galley includes a sink, a coffee maker, a refrigerator, a microwave, and a separate head and shower. 

Editor’s Tip 

The 400 CC boasts a high-capacity lithium battery bank to power systems such as the air conditioning. Recharged while underway by quad Mercury 400s, each with 150-amp alternators, the battery system virtually eliminates the need for a generator. -Jim Hendricks, Staff Editor, Boating and Fishing Group
