Default Pros / Cons BlackJack Boat

Thinking of buying a Blackjack Boat. Looking for advice/experiences of current owners. Looks like an awesome setup and fishing platform.

Any boat built by the Kenner family is a quality product. These include Frontier, Blackjack, and pre 2005 Kenner boats. I have a Kenner and love it. I have never heard a bad review of a BlackJack

Default Loved mine

Ran one for about 2 years when I was guiding and loved the boat. Best riding boat I have ever been in. Only reason I sold it is because I could not keep up the note when I quit guiding. The fit and finish are great. I am in the process of buying a 210 Frontier now.

Bill knows how to build a boat

Ask any question you have and I will try and answer them

Thx Guys, have heard nothing but good things about the Kenner Family boats. Saw the one at Metro Nola. They said had 700 hours on the 07 Honda, sounded like alot for a dealer demo, but would come with a new boat and motor warranty. Don't see alot of used ones around, owners must be very happy with them.

Usually if it is a 22' fiberglass the max is 250.....you see 300 for the 24' boats!
