Gallery of the Week: Stretching Out a New 39-Foot Blackwater

Built for the serious fisherman who craves a touch of refined comfort and class, the new 39 SF from Blackwater Boats—the sister company of Deep Impact Boats—is one serious angling machine. Not only is it loaded with rod holders, gadgets, storage and other goodies, the twin-step 39-foot center console with an 11-foot, 11-inch beam handles the open ocean like a champion.

A new Blackwater Boats 39 SF spans the Atlantic Ocean swells with ease. Photos by Greg Gawlikowski/Endless Imagery Photography

The picture above captured in December by Greg Gawlikowski of Endless Imagery Photography demonstrates that. During a photo shoot just east of Stiltsville near Miami’s Key Biscayne, Gawlikowski timed this image of the latest 39 SF, which is powered by quad Mercury Marine Verado 350 engines, perfectly as it was being stretched out across some sizable Atlantic Ocean swells.

With its larger sibling—the 43 SF—running off in the distance, the custom-built 17,000-pound 39-footer displayed a perfect running attitude and appeared eager to get to the next fishing location.

Check out a few more images of the Blackwater 39 SF in the slideshow above.

From the pictures above and below, it’s to see why the 39 SF, which tops out around 75 mph with the four 350-hp engines (it’s available with triples as well), provides a stable, dry ride along with plenty of comfortable seating options both in front of and behind the helm station. The boat also has a fuel capacity of 740 gallons so traveling, exploring and fishing at far-off destinations is not an issue.
