38 Ft. Blackfin Combi Express 1997

If you are looking for a rock solid, wave crushing Deep V with low hours and many modern updates like dual helm air conditioners, quiet Fischer Panda generator and newer Garmin Electronics, this Blackfin Combi 38 will get you to the fishing grounds quickly and smoothly, with a giant cockpit that can handle the largest of crews.

This 38 Blackfin Combi (express/open) has less than 600 hours on rebuilt Detroit DDEC 6V92 Diesel engines that are running strong! A newer tower was also installed that is not original to the boat and has a great layout with a bench seat and room to stand behind. This 38 Blackfin was previously owned by George Barber, one of the wealthiest land owners in the state of Alabama, and therefore has been updated with an open check book.
