on

Visit Black Water Boats at the 29th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show and check out the gorgeous new, family-friendly design options now available on Black Water’s 36-foot Sport Model.

The boat show runs March 20 to March 23 in downtown West Palm Beach.

Boats Direct USA caught up with Black Water at its home factory in Opa Locka  to see exactly what changes the redesigned 36-foot Sport Model is offering. Black Water Boats are sold exclusively through Boats Direct USA.

Black Water’s plumber/rigger Tony Fernandez gave Boats Direct USA an onboard tour. Here’s what we found out:

Center Console

On previous models, the steering wheel was in the center, the throttle control was on the right and the grab rail and cup holders were on the left. With the new design, the steering wheel is on the left, the throttle controls are centered and the grab bar and cup holders are on the right. According to Fernandez, it’s all a matter of personal preference.
Seating
The bow seating was redesigned to offer more room, more permanence and more comfort.The original “flip top” or “hideway” seats have been replaced by permanent and luxurious seating designed to cater to boaters looking for all of those creature comforts to make a day on the water even more enjoyable. The bow has also been opened up to create a wider walkway.

Flip seating was also removed from the stern and replaced with permanent seats.

“This is more for a family. It all depends on what a person wants,” explained Fernandez. “The hard core fisherman will want the flip ups.”

Leaning Post
The icebox has been removed from the newly-designed leaning post and replaced instead with a large livewell.

“Some people prefer the smaller livewell with the icebox,” Fernandez explained. “But some people want the bigger livewell with no icebox.”
It’s all about custom-creating your dream boat, and your consultant from Boats Direct USA will guide you in the right direction.
Boat Show Display
If you want to check out the 36 Sport Model yourself, you’ll find Black Water boat builder/designer Eugenio Uriarte and two-time Angler-of-the-Year Clayton Kirby at slip #1031 A-B. Both Kirby and Uriarte will be available to discuss the boats’ performance and custom-built construction.
“The boats are built one at a time. It’s a limited production company. It’s not a production line,” Uriarte explained. “I’m on top of every boat that’s being built. Before every boat goes to the owner, I throw it in the water myself and go through everything to make sure it’s the way I want it to be.”

Kirby threw his support behind the boats because he was impressed by their solid construction and top notch performance.
“The minute I saw the boat, I was in love with it even before I ever put it in the water and ran in it,” Kirby said. “The manufacturer has a passion for building high-quality products. That’s what sold me.”
Boat Show attendees can check out the 36 Sport Model and the 36 Sportfish at the Black Water display.
The 36 Sport Model – geared toward pleasure cruising, poker runs and recreational fishing – has generous wrap around forward seating to accommodate family and friends, and a large backseat with live wells underneath. It’s a head-turner with its custom-painted Mercury Verado 300s which match to the rest of the gorgeous boat.

“You can fish, you can go out, it’s upscale, more luxurious,” Uriarte said. “But at the same time you don’t lose your fishability.”
Black Water’s 36 Sportfish is an undeniable hardcore fishing machine with new pleasure features. This boat, with two jump seats in the front and one in back, runs 70 mph with triple 300 engines. It’s extremely fuel efficient and rock solid.
With Black Water Boats, customers can purchase an affordable, true custom boat for much less than they ever imagined!
