Eugene Uriarte is the creator/ designer of Blackwater Boats. For 15 years he designed and built custom homes for a demanding South Florida clientele. In 2005 Uriarte wanted to buy a boat for himself but was unhappy with the products he saw. It was then that he founded Blackwater. His boater's knowledge and attention to detail is what makes the brand unique. The emphasis has always been quality over quantity. Now with more new and bigger models the company is ready for growth.
Blackwater Boats are handcrafted one at a time. Yet the true beauty goes beyond what meets the eye. High tech laminates strengthened by a massive stringer grid deliver a solid, rattle free ride. We also use a combination of hand laid glass and vacuum bagging to guarantee strength and save weight.
Above deck you will find everything you need for a great day out on the water. Whether it's offshore fishing, cruising or entertaining, your Blackwater can be designed the way you want with features you need.
At Blackwater, we are as passionate about boats as you are. Together we can deliver a product that goes beyond your expectations.
Blackwater Boats are hand fabricated one piece at a time. They are custom built to your standards and boating needs. We manufacture each center console with the finest hi-tech materials and reliable time tested methods.
From the time the sale inquiry begins until delivery, our team has the knowledge to guide you through the entire process. We understand that building a custom boat is exciting yet sometimes challenging. We want this to be a fun experience. From the very beginning we want to hear from you what you want in your perfect boat. Is your emphasis focused on offshore fishing? Are you looking for a day boat, overnight accommodations, entertaining, etc.? The more we know about your boating the needs the better we can do our job for you. Beyond amenities and options, we will want to know your choice of color palate. From high quality fabrics and custom stitching, to exterior paint colors, the choices are many. We have the expertise to make sure the final product turns out exactly the way you imagined. The list goes on but we make every attempt to assure your build is smooth and seamless.
After all, we want your happiest day to be the one when you take delivery of your new Blackwater and not the day you sell.
