The beautiful Blackwater Explorer

Built to fish - Our "Blackwater Explorer" is one of the most attractive yachts sailing the Amazon basin. Her classic and graceful "Amazonian Regional" design blends perfectly with the pristine blackwater habitat she calls home. But more importantly, she's been built to fish. Her broad beam maximizes her functional interior space while keeping her length manageably short. This gives her great maneuverability, letting her safely and easily penetrate into inaccessible, meandering headwaters streams. The yacht's impressively low draft (she displaces only 1.2 meters) allows her to readily pass shallow sandbars and obstructions that would keep less efficiently designed boats back in port.

Designed for fishermen - The Blackwater Explorer was designed for fishermen. Her well-organized debarkation deck lets a full group of anglers get started on their fishing day quickly, without crowding, fuss or confusion. The debarkation deck's waterline exit lets you walk right onto your fishing boat, with no ladders to climb. All of your fishing gear and take-along items can remain right at hand and be ready to go when you are. We've done our homework and we've designed the best purpose-built sportfishing vessel in the Amazon. Luxurious and Comfortable - The Explorer is a fishing mothership of the highest caliber. The list of her luxurious features is long. Here are just a few.

  1. Private bathrooms w/sink, toilet and hot shower in each cabin.
  2. Roomy cabins with plenty of storage space.
  3. Two meter high ceilings. Gone are the days when six-footers have to duck.
  4. Huge (6 and 1/2 x 7 meter) common area. Spacious dining room and lots of walk-around space.
  5. Big, wide, non-slip stairwells.
  6. Cabin doors open directly to outside spaces.
  7. Shallow draft for improved access - almost 1/2 meter less than typical Amazon yachts. The Explorer can fish areas others simply can’t get to.

Comfort and Security - The "Blackwater Explorer" will take you to some of the world's most remote fisheries, with more comfort than anyone could expect hundreds of miles away from the last vestiges of civilization. Hot showers, private bathrooms, personal air-conditioners, 100VAC in each cabin, reading lamps, storage cabinets - who could expect all this on an Amazon fishing adventure? You should! Spend your day on fast bass boats fishing productive, hidden backwaters, then return each evening to the comfort and security of the Blackwater Explorer. Added to this, the high level of personal service provided by our staff and the dedicated fishing expertise provide by our guides make the Blackwater Explorer the ultimate way to access the incredible Amazon peacock bass.
