Yanmars only had 804 hours , I went thru the entire boat , new electronics , new interior , all new thru hulls , new water maker , paint and so forth , it was a mess , I had Don Blackman build me two 26 foot billfishers The Harvey B and the Vonnie B and they were awsome boats , I owned the Harvey B for 8 years and the second one for 2 , yanmars are like any othet motors , you have to do the maintence , a lot of guys on the water front like the yanmars but its like everything else everyone has there preference im really happy with the mains 370`swill it fit on a trailer ,lol, and was it a production boat, we had "our toy" next to us at swyc, but i'm not a fan of the yanmars or the ex owner, lol..
Hugh boozers for sure and zero maintence , I still have my 30 foot centet console at the bay club marina along with the Jimmie C and I still fish halibut on the Pura Vida on a regular basics love to fish the flatties ,you mofos are the halibut kings! we'd see the harvey b at coronados every time we were there. great boats and don was even better. the past owners must not have cared about the boat as as much as they did about their drinks, lol.
Hi Mike, I bought the express from Mike some 20 years ago. The best boat I have owned. I have always thought the outer banks was the best model and this boat for sale is exceptional.Beautiful I’ve owned 3 26’ Blackmans, 2 Billfishers and a Express. Only sold it because of bad knees going up and down from to the flybridge became a real issue. Shows pride of ownership, best boats out there. My last Blackman was a 2003 Billfisher the “Patron’“ oh I miss that boat.
Beautiful boat for sure , ive`d fished on a outerbanks for the last 15 years out of Homer Alaska , it was owned by Tony DeMichelle and it is really nice , it`s now owned by Norm who runs chaters with if ` I canceled my trip this year 3 weeks ago due to the covid crap ,Don Blackman was my little league coavh I went to svhool with his son SteveHi Mike, I bought the express from Mike some 20 years ago.

It`s a lot of boat for a 39 foot , it`s been nice doing 2 day trips on it , im hoping to go to the islands friday on my center console to fish the tides in the morning , it` s been a weird year the bigger fish some some reason stayed deep , the 110 to 123 feet has been the ticket , were fishing below the ridge at south islandwe've watched you pull up many a flattie , while we get nothing , lol. you guys ruled the islands. i'm glad the boat will be taken care of i always liked that boat. kind of looks like a skipjack on steroids.
