2009 BlackWater Motor Yachts Sport Fisher 35

Bradwell-on-Sea, United Kingdom


The Blackwater Motor Yachts Sports Fisher 35 is a versatile and practical sports fisher, combining comfortable cruising accommodation with excellent performance and exterior deck space, all in a proven and highly capable John Bennett hull design. Boudicca is a desirable flybridge version, fitted with the excellent Yamaha 245 diesel engines on twin sterndrives for economy and performance, all just comprehensively overhauled and serviced, and she is believed to be the highest spec of any built. Her impressive inventory includes comprehensive navigation equipment, a bow thruster, electric capstan winch, diesel heating, hot water, and more. Considered to be the UK's answer to the popular US sports fishers, or a faster very capable alternative to the Arvor, Beneteau Antares, Jeanneau Merryfisher, or Rodman ranges, these are rare and highly sought-after boats thanks to their dual-purpose design well suited to weekend cruising and very comfortable fishing trips!

EXTERIOR   -   The large aft cockpit is ideal for fishing trips or for using with paddle boards, kayaks, and other watersports equipment. There is a large lazarette / hold forward, numerous fitted lockeres, a deckwash, and walk-through stern access to the bathing platform. Generous decks with stainless steel grabrails provide safe access to and from the foredeck, and a stainless steel ladder leads up to the flybridge. The flybridge has a helm position with bucket seat, controls, and navigation equipment, with a useful area aft for further seating.

Mechanical Systems

Located under the cockpit sole in a large engine compartment, twin Yamaha ME422 six cylinder 245hp turbo diesel engines. Freshwater cooled via heat exchangers. Twin Yamaha sterndrives with stainless steel dual-propellers. Twin lever controls with electric start at both helms. Twin 390L aluminium fuel tanks.

They have run for 909hrs since new equating to an ideal average usage of approx. 75hrs per season. Although Yamaha are better known for their outboard engines, the ME422 is based on the well-proven and extremely tough Toyota six-cylinder engine, and they are well established and highly regarded in the commercial marine world.
