yachts were yachts created in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The company that produced the yachts was Blackfin Yacht Corporation, which filed for bankruptcy in 1997 and eventually closed its doors. Blackfin’s manufacturing history started in 1973 with intent to build excellent offshore fishing yachts. Blackfin models ranged from the Blackfin 23 to the Blackfin 40, in styles such as flybridge, combi, and open lines. Fiberglass with the highest industry level of hand-laid laminate was chosen for Blackfin, and the yachts were built to semi-custom specifications. The manufacturing facility for Blackfin yachts allowed quality to be standardized throughout the yacht family. Salt Shaker Marine was pleased to acquire some of the Blackfin molds and produced two Blackfin 29s in 2001. Over the years, yachts have come and gone, but Blackfin belongs in an elite group of vessels that have a reputation of being the best of their kind. One of company’s finest: the Blackfin 29, introduced in 1983, which remained in production until the company closed in 1998. The Blackfin 29 was built to withstand all the harsh conditions the sea can dish out, with attention to detail and craftsmanship.
