1986 Black Watch Custom 30 Pilothouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Stock #147178

What is a Black Watch 30? I had never heard of one, but with some research I discovered the Black Watch 30 was designed by famed marine architect Raymond Hunt of Bertram fame and built from 1986 to 1996 by Ted Hood in Rhode Island.

All Black Watch 30's could be customized at build (the owner has the blueprints from this boat's build) and this one was built as an open fisherman with the weather sealed hardtop and large windshields added in 2015.

Like other boats designed by Raymond Hunt, this Black Watch 30 has a very efficient cored deep-vee hull and is powered by the original twin Isuzu Marine turbocharged engines connected to ZF gear boxes.

I found that those who own these boats absolutely love them; in fact they are almost fanatical about the Black Watch 30 on various boards. Fans love how well they handle in rough seas, how fuel efficient the diesel package is and how well laid out the entire boat is.

The Black Watch 30 has a nearly 11-foot beam, plenty of room to fish, dive or cruise with friends. The captain's bench sits you up high with a commanding view of all gauges and over the long bow.

There is comfortable seating for four but can easily seat 6. The berth has a nice head (removed)/ shower combination on the starboard side under the helm, while the galley with a two burner stove, fridge (removed right now) and sink are port side. The V berth cushions can be removed for seating for four and can sleep two comfortably. There is plenty of storage in the berth and many lockers in the cockpit.

This particular Black Watch has been restored and still needs the exterior wood refinished and some interior wood redone too.

Some cleaning and detailing will do wonders since this Black Watch 30 has been sitting in a marine warehouse on the hard for some time.

Mechanically she is in very nice condition, and I have never seen an engine and other compartments so clean. The bottom is recently painted and shows only minor nicks to the surface.

Information On Condition

Overall condition is good and has under gone a restoration.

She is ready to go mechanically, but the exterior and interior wood could use refinishing to be the cherry on top.

According to the owner everything works, the power steering is newer and he has many of the original books and records including the original blue prints for this boat.

Please see last 3 pictures for full description of restoration written by the owner.
