Blackfin’s incredible new 40-foot center console.
By: Gregg Mansfield
Blackfin Boats collaborated with renowned designer Michael Peters for the 400CC (43’ 10” LOA, 12’ beam). The new flagship has a double-stepped hull and is powered by quad 400-horsepower Mercury Marine V10 engines. Thanks to a 500-gallon fuel capacity, the 400CC has great range for chasing big game fish.
The helm includes two rows of heated seats, which is protected by a substantial T-top and windshield. The command centre holds a pair of 24” Garmin screens, JL Audio system, thruster and the Mercury controls with joystick.
A console under the hardtop can be used as a tackle station or can double as a kitchen with an optional electric grill. Two pullout Yeti coolers come standard, but a refrigerator can be tucked into the side of the console.
The 400CC is loaded with fishing features and some highlights include a tuna door for hauling in fish, two in-floor fish boxes and a 70-gallon live well in the center transom. Anglers will appreciate the molded toe kicks in the gunwales and the upholstered coamings.
A tuna door makes hauling in the big game easier and simplifies boarding at the docks. Blackfin included a transom door for additional boarding and access to the Mercury Marine outboards. Port and starboard ladders on the transom provides easy access in and out of the water.
Down below, Blackfin created a multipurpose cabin that includes a couch that folds down to a berth, a mini galley with the basics and a separate head and shower.
Blackfin released the 400CC to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary, expanding on the popular 332 Center Console by offering more space and features.
Blackfin’s 30-30-30 philosophy is simple. Deliver boats that are used 30 percent of the time for fishing, cruising and entertaining. The flagship 400CC delivers on that and more.
