"Away We Go" is a very clean and well maintained example of a Blackfin 33 Flybridge that is ready to fish and cruise this upcoming season!
The 1993 Blackfin 33 has long been known as a strong performer, providing good looks, performance and fishability in a variety of applications. Powered by 375 hp Caterpillar 3208's this engine was the best option from the factory in this model with reliability, ease of serviceability and performance.

The Blackfin 33 has long been known as one of the best performers in its class with its low freeboard, sharp entry and deep-V hull design. Combined with its wide 12 foot beam, this boat feels like a large boat for its size and extremely stable at trolling speeds.
With just a few small steps up to the flybridge, the helmsman is never away from the action while still providing the space and volume of a flybridge layout.
Engine boxes in the cockpit provide a great lounging spot or a place to watch the spread while trolling. Entering into the cabin, there is a dinette to port which converts to a bunk opposite the enclosed head with stall shower. Forward of the head is the compact yet functional galley. Forward is the V-berth providing bunks for two.
The four cycle or four stroke diesel powered Caterpillar 3208TA is a V-8 configured engine that is turbo charged and aftercooled and produces 375 brake horsepower at 2800 revolutions per minute. With a bore of 4.5" and a stroke of 5.0" the displacement is 636 cubic inches or 10.4 liters. The compression ratio is 15.5:1 the freshwater cooling capacity is 14.8 gallons, the lube oil capacity is 4 gallons and the approximate dry weight is 2080 lbs per engine.
The marine reduction gear is located in the drive train aft of the engines. As the name implies, the purpose of the reduction gear is to reduce the RPM (revolutions per minute) of the propeller shaft to a more efficient speed for use by the propeller. The gear also provides forward, neutral and reverse capabilities through a series of gears and clutches. the gear ratio is 1.51:1
The freshwater cooling system on the Blackfin 33 is a closed system. Coolant, a mixture of low silicate diesel anti-freeze, or condtioned automotive anti-freeze and water is circulated throughout the engine and to a heat exchanger. Seawater is picked up under the boat, strained through the large hull-mounted seawater strainers, and passed through the other side of the heat exchanger removing the heat from the engine coolant. The seawater is then dumped into the exhaust at the injection elbow located on the engine and flows overboard with the exhaust.
The ideal 6kW generator set is small and lightweight. The M673L3 certainly qualifies. But it stands apart through its remarkable long-life reliability. The reason? The M673L3 runs at 1800 rpm (1500 rpm for 50 Hz), instead of 3600 rpm.
Consider that during only 2000 hours of operation the 1800 rpm M673L3 will turn 216 million fewer revolutions than a 3600 rpm set. Its pistons will travel 38,522 fewer miles. Its cylinders will withstand 108 million fewer detonations. Which engine do you think will give more years of reliable service? We couldn’t agree more.
The M673L3 has a balanced Lugger three cylinder diesel instead of a rough two banger. Four plateform isolation mounts reduce vibration transmission even more. For maximum comfort afloat the new M673L3 has a Sound Maze air intake system.
Air enters through a molded rubber hose and an acoustic dampening chamber. Air goes in but much less noise gets out. For maximum sound attenuation, specify a sound enclosure. It is constructed of electrogalvanized steel panels with a powder-coated auminum extruded framework, and creates a 23% smaller overall package than previous versions.
The generator’s automatic voltage regulator is powered by an auxiliary AC stator winding that isolates it from the main windings. The AVR always has clean power to provide excitation for faster load response and better motor starting.
Your air conditioner and other motor driven equipment will love being matched with the 673.
A 30 amp AC circuit breaker in the junction box protects your wiring. Safety shutdowns for low oil pressure, high coolant temperature and high exhaust temperature protect your engine.
The M673L3 meets US EPA Tier III emission standards. You, your moorage
neighbors and the environment will all benefit.
1800 rpm reliability, low emissions, quiet operation and strong motor starting. Good things do come in small packages.
