The Black Watch 28 was released in the first quarter of 2004 and is a natural progression from its popular predecessor the Black Watch 26 Express. Boasting a flush cockpit sole and a roomier cabin, the Black Watch 28 is the perfect compromise for the entertainer who wants to fish or the fisherman who wants to cruise the waterways with family and friends.
The Black Watch 28 is, due to its family linage, a superb sea handling boat, which will bring a smile to those seeking a fun day out no matter what the conditions! Powering options consist of either petrol or diesel sterndrive, diesel v-drive or a twin shaft drive diesel installation. The possibilities are endless. In all configurations the Black Watch 28 outperforms all in her class with lively throttle response and excellent maneuverability. The now legendary Black Watch hull design results in a dry, soft riding and stable experience each and every time you set out on an adventure.
The cockpit layout of the BW28 is large with great room for either the optional rear lounge and table or a medium tackle game chair! Port and Starboard of the engine space is large removable under floor lockers which enable complete access to all sides of the engine. The transom above sole livewell is a great option which can make for an icebox on those days when the fish are not biting and the beer needs to be icy-cold! The helm position features port and starboard helm seats incorporating aft facing lounges with storage below. You will be amazed at the storage offered in this 28’ vessel. When seated at the helm you will notice the excellent visibility and ergonomic layout giving ample space to mount the various electronics today’s skipper demands.
Protect ion from the weather is available in either the standard bimini top or by the upgraded stainless steel targa arch (which incorporates a bimini top). Later in 2004 we will be offering an optional hardtop design.
The Black Watch 280 interior layout flows smoothly from the galley to the dinette, which when needed coverts into a double berth. The galley features an elegant granicote finish, single burner cook top and has provision for the optional 12V refrigerator below. To the starboard side is the bathroom featuring the large sized toilet and shower facility with a classy hand basin and cupboard space. Ventilation to both the galley and bathroom is provided via the stainless steel opening Portlights.
