"As a professional fishing guide, I've owned a number of boats, but the BlackJack 256 is my all-time favorite! The layout allows for great room, so even with four clients onboard no one is crowded. The waters I fish are inland saltwater and flats, and accessing shallow waters is never an issue. Clients and fellow captains are always amazed about the skinny, shallow waters we can access in my BlackJack 256."
"BlackJack is truly a great dry ride and takes the rough water better than any other bay boat I have ridden in. The BlackJack gets me to the big fish no matter the weather, keeping me and my customers dry. Their comfort with a smooth ride keeps me focused on what I'm here for: Leading them to the big one."
"The ride is fantastic. It's dry and maneuvers in open water and close quarters like no other outboard. Because we fish a lot in North Carolina, its ability to plane quickly and stay on plane at slow speeds gives us an edge crossing wide, sometime choppy expanses of rough water to get to skinny water areas to fish. The layout is terrific. Good dry storage. Nice illuminated live wells. Plenty of rod storage. Easy to move around the boat. The fit and finish is at the top of the class. I get excited every time I run this boat and cannot imagine not having a BlackJack for fishing and just overall fun on the water."
"I've been guiding for 25 years in the coastal marshes of south Louisiana. I've been guiding out of BlackJack boats the last 13, and there is not a finer boat on the market. You won't see me guiding out of any other boat!"
"BlackJacks are made with backcountry and near-shore fishing in mind. These boats ride better than many larger offshore boats I've owned. They hold the water like they’re on rails, and also float and run extremely shallow for a boat of their stature. I tell people that ride is everything, and you should always take a test ride in less than ideal conditions before purchasing. I always say if you test ride a BlackJack today, you'll be listing your boat tomorrow."
“You’ll never ride a drier boat. After 20 years on the water, that is one thing that stands out above all. My BlackJack keeps me dry in conditions where most boats would have my customers soaked.”
“The stunningly beautiful lines of the BlackJack first caught my eye, and then I was blown away by its performance — especially in rough water.”
