Come see BlackJack Boats' newest model in its production line of premier center-console bay boats, the 256 Coastal, at the Biloxi Boat Show February 22-24, 2019.
We'll be exhibiting the Coastal with our local dealer, Crown Leisure Marine, in the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, space #3.
Like BlackJack's orignal 256 model, the Coastal is 25 feet and 6 inches long, and has an open layout suited for various uses. It's perfect for fishing enthusiasts who need a vessel that can get up and go in shallow water, but can also tackle bigger, rougher waters offshore — all while still getting the exceptionally smooth, dry ride BlackJack is known for.
To set it apart from other bay boats, the 256 Coastal also includes several "creature comforts," such as padding around the bow platform, multiple cupholders and removable backrest for forward seating. Trust us when we say your passengers will have a more comfortable experience and appreciate the extra bells and whistles the Coastal carries.
The Coastal's open layout provides easy access to the stern and 40-gallon live well leaning post, making it ideal for trolling or setting up ofshore on reefs or wrecks. The modified vee and raised forward deck and trolling motor make it equally capable inshore, chasing reds and specks. With optional deck cushions and backrests, the Coastal is quickly convertible to a day cruiser and is a favorite on sandbars or a cruise on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Whether your mission is going hard for fish or going easy with friends for a good time, the Coastal will get you there. Of course, all of these features are captured on the lines and hull design that BlackJacks are known for and revered.
Tickets for the boat show are $8 at the door. Children ages 12 & under get in free. For more information, visit the Gulf Coast Shows website.
