BLACKFISH

Ron & Carolyn Zarrella launched s/v Blackfish (Taylor 49′) in 2017, six months after their wedding. Built by Brooklin Boat Yard in Brooklin, ME and designed by Jim Taylor of Marblehead, MA her homeport is Nantucket, MA where the Zarrella’s are summer residents. Blackfish has competed succesfully in the CYOA New England Series (formerly Panerai Series) in the Spirit of Tradition Class and has accumulated mostly podium finishes. While Blackfish has a modern keel, rudder and carbon fiber mast (faux painted), Designer Jim Taylor is proud that she accomplishes what she was specified to do and be: drop-dead gorgeous above and a race boat below.
