I’m not really sure where to start, I’ve been boating as long as I can remember. I’ve been on many different boats and liked a lot of them but always owned Makos. It was a few years ago after riding on a friends contender 23T, my wife said…I really like this open bow and all the room it has. I replied with a me too and took it as an opening to get a different class of CC. I looked all around and the price of those Contenders was just flat out unaffordable for the average household income. So my friend who has this 23T said, have you ever thought about a Bluewater? I said, no, haven’t ever heard of them. We live in NE Florida, so they aren’t all over the place up here. Well, the hunt to find a 2350 BW to get my eyes on had started. After about a month and lots of phone calls and friends of friends I had found a guy local to me who agreed to let my wife and I put our eyes on the boat. IMMEDIATELY, I knew this was the boat I wanted and I hadn’t even rode on one yet. The space, the layout and the functionality of everything sold my wife and I. Now began the journey of locating a used 2350 that wasn’t beat to hell and over priced. Months had gone by I had looked at a couple and had some leads on some others but nothing panned out. During this time I had a few questions about the boats. Someone suggested I call the shop and ask away and that everyone there was super friendly and helpful. Wouldn’t you know, I got Paul on the phone two separate times answering questions and giving me his time. I didn’t even own a BW yet, I was just wanting to buy a used one and here this guy is helping me cause that’s who he is. That went a long way with me. That, coupled with the affordable price is what really sold me and put it over the edge. I had to have a 2350 and wouldn’t settle for anything else. A Saturday In December of 2021, I was drinking coffee and frustrated that I hadn’t found a BW yet. I said to myself, let me check Craigslist, nobody hardly post there but it’s worth a shot. No BS, I type in Bluewater and up pops a beautiful 2004 grey sides, white bottom and red TTop Bluewater 2350 with a 2003 Yamaha F225….well within my price range. Long story short, it’s in Homestead and I have a mechanic and another friend check the boat out for me before I make the drive. It was beautiful, so off I went. I arrived to meet an older gentleman by the name of Rumberto. He is the original owner of this boat, went to the factory and had it built. I couldn’t believe all of this, I was ecstatic. I bought the boat and towed her home. Since that day we have put countless hours and days on that 2350 as a family and fishing. It has served us well and will be the last boat we own. When the 225 fails, I’ll put a 300 on her and give her another 20 years. Thank y’all for a great boat. We love it. I’d love to stop and see the factory one day.
