Default Black Watch 26

26 Black Watch with Yamaha F-225 TXRC/LF-225TXRC Everything new, all new lighting, new norcold frig, new interior inside and out, new VHF, 24" Samsung Smart TV, AM/FM Stereo BT HDMI, new cuisinart cook top, new Stamiod top,so much more, i went through every inch of this boat and this boat is better and nicer then some new boats ive seen, built better for sure, engines have been both updated, this was a one owner boat before i bought it, I'm a Yamaha Outboard Tech, I rigged it and did all the work myself, I hate to get rid of this boat, because I will never find another one like it, to buy a boat equal to this it would cost $250K to $300K, I have all the books and records from the day is was purchased, even the letter from Black Watch to the original owner. 1989 26 Black Watch with Yamaha F-225's TXRC

Default 26 BW My reveiw

.
The Black Watch 26's is a solidly built day boat meant for the kind of ofshore work that keeps most boats her size tied to the dock in bad weather. She's built with a deep v hull with a wide beam and flush cockpit layout. Available with inboard or outboard power. The BW 26 provides anglers with a big fishing cockpit with 2 indeck fishboxes and in the outboard version a nifty starboard side rod locker. A 30 galon livewell was standard and there is space at the helm for flush mounting electronics. Inside the accomdations over/under v-berths, small galley with Cusinart cooktop, ac/de norcold frig/freezer, 24" Samsung smart TV, AM/FM Stereo with 4 speaker system, two inside two out, enclosed head with shower 20 gallon hot water heater . Not bad for a small fishing boat. Outfitted with twin four strokes 225 hp yammies she will cruise at a fast 29-30 knots and reach top speed of 45 knots. (everything you can touch with the exception of the boat itself (hull, deck and cap), is
, this BW will out perform anything you could buy dollar for dollar, this would compare to a large Grady or Pursuit, and the Black Watch will ride better hands down, i will bet my last dollar on it.

I am restoring the same boat and engine package. What props and what size are you running? Did you run into any surprises during your renovation? Thanks for the info.

OMG, every corner, everthing i touch, every part i bought, there was a surprise, the biggest came with the spacing of the engines, I learned through my wallet, and I've been in the business for close to 30 years, and have done many many re-powers, but this boat with the transom the way it is (at the time this boat was desinged for two stroke engines), and like most older boats, it was defenitly a challenge, this boat was kept in a high and dry its whole life in NY, so every hose and anything plastic I replaced, not that it was broke, but I didnt want whoever gets this boat next, it was going to be right for them, and when i bought it plans were i was going to keep it and use it this summer with my family, we were and still might cruise from east coast of Florida over to the Bahamas and stop at different places and stay, but I knew there would be nights where we would be in a remote area and not at a marina, just on the hook, and I wanted everything 100% , also so my wife couldnt bitch at me and say, why doesnt this work, but if you ever have removed a vinyl hose/plastic hose off say through-hull valve, its not as easy as one may think, many hours with the heat gun, heating up the hose to remove it, and replacing the frig well lets just say i measured my opening down below, but i get in such a hurry i forgot about the entry into the cabin, so I have to remove that teak door jam, it was actually it was kinda cool seeing how they built this boat, and whoever was the carpenter he did one heck of a job, stuff you dont see today, or stuff i dont see in my income range, but, after a whole day playing with that, i was able to cross that off my list, so the only thing i can say is good luck, have fun, and check the balance in your piggy bank, as you'll need all three of those statements to work in your favor, but on a serious, call me if you come across any issues, I'm not going to give my sercrets away for free on here!!!
