Go Cruising in a Top-of-the-line 29

Blackwater 29'

“Comfortable Cruising”... is what you feel in a Blackwater 29. The same reassuring Robbins hull is the basis for this model that combines the day cruising with friends to the overnight trips to serene destinations.

MathewsBros is proud of the Blackwater because it presents top of the line quality in 29 feet. The first of our two 29 designs, this boat is perfect for quality time out on the water with a full galley as well as an enclosed full head. For those overnight trips, the spacious V-berth can certainly sleep two comfortably and is perfect for curling up to read while moored in an inviting cove somewhere.

"The Blackwater 29 model was the right choice for how we intended to use her. We can accommodate many friends for a cocktail cruise, and yet the accommodations for a weekend of cruising are very comfortable for the two of us. "
