2013 Black Jack 224
The BlackJack 224 represents the ultimate blend of prowess and performance, all wrapped together in a sleek and striking design from legendary boat builders Bill & Gary Kenner. From the smooth, dry ride of the "Carolina flare" bow to its classic "tumblehome" transom, the BlackJack 224 blends tradition and technology like no other boat on the market. Her hand-laid hull and deck are heavy-duty but lightweight. Reverse-angle, spray-reduction chines deflect the water with authority. A 15° transom deadrise melds into a concave bow V for superior shallow water command. Four lifting strakes enhance her precise tracking, with transom hull extensions that offset the weight of even the heaviest of outboards. Thanks to 100% composite construction, there's no wood to rot. Honeycomb-cored decks surrender zero flex. Three-inch-thick transoms are virtually crack-proof. All fiberglass parts are made with premium quality gelcoats and resins. The BlackJack comes standard with a generous amount of storage, including in-deck storage for up to 7 rods, all with lockable latches to keep your gear safe. All hinges, latches, cleats, and rod holders are cast stainless steel, and are resistant to the corrosiveness of saltwater. Dual insulated livewells, molded fiberglass tubs, and compression-molded, O-ring-sealed hatches are all hand-laid and manufactured to exacting tolerances. Forget "extreme makeovers." Make a date with your BlackJack dealer, and say hello to the love of your life.
