26 Black Watch Express- 1987 200 hp Yamaha Outboard engines with under 500 original hours....Engines have just been completely overhauled by professional mechanic and engines are strong (carburetor, water pumps, plugs, seals, oil sending units replaced, new gas hoses)
BOat looks like it has been kept in a time capsule ....Boat has tons of storage, 9'8'' beam, giant cockpit for fishing or family cruising. Boat has original custom hardtop. Boat is in water for viewing and sea testing.....
Hull is solid as a rock and dry. No soft spots anywhere. Engines are 87 with no fuel management system so fuel burn is unknown. Just put in, Sony am/fm/cd/iPod. When I tell you I bought boat in a time capsule I'm not kidding. Original owner never fished it, it never left long island sound except when it was brought home from BLack Watch production shop in Rhode Island. I had hull soda blasted and barrier coated. Gas tank was emptied andvfuel lines all replaced. I cruisevat about 4200 rpms at 34mph and boat tops out at 5700 and 47mphs. Only selling cause my wife hates the boat she was spoiled by the luxury of my 33 Phoenix I sold last fall.
I believe 200 gallons of fuel>>>like i said im posting for my dad but i have a 26 regulator and the boats are identical except beam and bracket and i hold 218gallons so hes close. Engines run very very strong where overhauled in the spring and just recently serviced before he put boat for sale.
