After a multi-year Pacific Northwest hiatus, Florida-based Blackfin Boats have found a dealer in the Pacific Northwest—Irwin Yacht Sales. These popular, trailerable, go-fast and have-fun sport boats are all about maximizing space aboard for comfortable days on the water.

The 212 Center Console is the line’s smallest model, targeting both the entry level boaters and those looking for big boat fun without big boat problems. As far as general looks are concerned, you’re looking at a pretty standard runabout with several clever ninja entertaining and seating features.

The 212 CC has a sharp forward entry with variable deadrise and large freeboard meant to provide a comfortable, efficient ride. The bow is deep-set and, thanks to adjustable components, provides a cockpit table with padded seating, a sun pad for one or two loungers, or a casting platform for anglers. Removeable backrests forward also orient those sitting in the bow into more of a sunchair position, ideal for kicking back and taking in the view underway.

Aft is straightforward and innovative with amply endowed dual walkways around the hardtop-sheltered console. The modest transom has integrated rod holders and pairs with bench-style seating. An open swim platform with deployable ladder goes off the back next to the outboard. A 250-horsepower is standard with a maximum horsepower rating of 300 horsepower.

Overall, the 212 CC looks like a great boat for tearing up Lake Chelan or Puget Sound on a sunny day or during a fishing derby. Bring those foulies for winter transits, it’s definitely an open Florida boat. If interested in more information or pricing, you can contact local dealer Irwin Yacht Sales.
