1976 24’ Blackfin Combi Classic Cuddy with Marlin Tower, repowered twin Ford 302s located in Bridgeport CT, here is your chance at one of the true classic, vintage sport fishing boats.
This is the real deal, the iconic Blackfin Combi 24, one of the most attractive and aggressive pocket sport fishing yachts of the era when boats were boats, and before the big HP center consoles hit the market. This classic beauty has it all, a new coat of shimmering black Imron, and a Marlin Tower with full helm, and she has the look that sets the Blackfins apart from the run of the mill 24 footers. Repowered in 2007 with freshwater cooled Ford 302 gasoline engines with now only 40 hours, this is the classic twin screw Combi cuddy on the famous Blackfin performance hull.
This boat has had many new upgrades in addition to the repower: the hull was professionally painted with black Imron in 2009; props and struts were replaced in 2009; exterior cushions were redone in 2009; and the cuddy interior was redone in 2009. The primary fuel tank was replaced in 2008 with new Stainless Steel. A bit more elbow grease to refinish woodwork and shine up the metalwork, and this is a classic boat to be proud of. This boat does not have the full teak treatment that was an option on some of the earlier Combis.
Blackfins have a big following of active owners and owner’s forums, only to be expected with a tried and true traditional classic yacht. Here is a chance to acquire a recognized traditional twin screw combis which will hold her value and her distinction over the next 40 years. All reasonable offers will be considered.
