Designer's comments:

The BlackBird 22 was designed to be a very useful boat, not just something to look at. You will be very reluctant to hide it away. I commend BlackBird on their investment in the tooling, machinery and, most of all, the craftsmanship to produce a fine quality, low maintenance boat at an affordable price.
