"The 27 has plenty of features for many fishing situations, as well as general cruising and family trips. A molded anchor locker is forward, set just behind a flush-mounted pop-up cleat. The standard stainless plow anchor is mounted through a stainless receiver in the bow and can be retrieved by an optional windlass. There's plenty of room for chain and rode, and the access hatch is big and easy to work out of. The 27 also has a recessed handrail that runs the length of the interior cockpit and offers a sure handhold when running or fishing.
The forward, U-shaped seating provides storage below and offers several neat options, including removable backrests on both aft ends, and/or a center filler piece to make a solid casting platform or a cushion-filled area for fun trips. A pedestal and table come as options for the forward area. Blackwood offers a lot of versatility with this boat in terms of how you can configure the forward area. There is in-deck storage in front of the console.
The console has a molded, insulated drink box beneath the forward seat, as well as enough room to accommodate a fully finished interior complete with a head and a countertop with a sink. The boat has great access to the backside of the electronics panel from inside the console. The impressive helm dash comes trimmed with faux wood panels, as does the electronics dash, while the surrounding trim and aft bulkhead of the console are gelcoated black. The helm sets to port, with the binnacle just right of that, while a dash panel forward of the helm and beneath the electronics dash can handle two large screens for multifunction units. A rocker switch panel sits under the helm and binnacle on the aft face, and, under the panel, two drawers and two molded footrests provide additional storage." Saltwater Sportsman
