This 1997 Blackfin 29 Convertible "DARK STAR" has the newer bridge layout with the helm seat aft and nice seating forward. In rough seas, the legendary Blackfin hull is one of the few under 30-foot boats of her type capable of running with the heavy hitters in offshore conditions. She's a superb fishing boat with a clean unobstructed cockpit and an easy-to-reach flybridge with seating for four or five. The fact that she has a stylish and comfortable interior with 6'6'' headroom only adds to her appeal. The upscale accommodations allow her to serve as a comfortable weekend cruiser. Raised engine boxes forward of the cockpit provide excellent access to the motors and double as bait-watching seats. "DARK STAR" is well known for chasing giant tuna and marlin in Puerto Vallarta before undergoing a complete refit in 2022-23 under the hands of her owner/captain and big game angler's direction. Every system was replaced. If you are in the market for a "Like New" 29' flybridge boat you will not find a nicer one than this one. Call today and schedule a showing.
