The Blackwater Motor Yachts Sports Fisher 35 is a versatile and practical sports fisher, combining comfortable cruising accommodation with excellent performance and exterior deck space, all in a proven and highly capable John Bennett hull design. Boudicca is a desirable flybridge version, fitted with the excellent Yamaha 245 diesel engines on twin sterndrives for economy and performance, all just comprehensively overhauled and serviced, and she is believed to be the highest spec of any built. Her impressive inventory includes comprehensive navigation equipment, a bow thruster, electric capstan winch, diesel heating, hot water, and more. Considered to be the UK's answer to the popular US sports fishers, or a faster very capable alternative to the Arvor, Beneteau Antares, Jeanneau Merryfisher, or Rodman ranges, these are rare and highly sought-after boats thanks to their dual-purpose design well suited to weekend cruising and very comfortable fishing trips!
