Our fleet


Steve Colgate, of Offshore Sailing School, designed this PERFECT teaching day sailor for use in sailing schools, sailing clubs, and collegiate racing.

Colgates are extremely safe and comfortable, combining the sporty feel and maneuverability of a much smaller boat, with the features, functionality and stability of a MUCH larger boat.

Black Rock own four Colgates across our Boston and Warwick locations.

The Colgate 26 has been chosen by the US Naval Academy, the US Coast Guard Academy, Maine Maritime Academy, and various other colleges and universities for their training and collegiate racing needs.

Hunter 27 “Zoom Classroom”

Black Rock started with a Hunter back in 2008 because the design has MANY features that make it an excellent training boat AND club boat for Black Rock.

The Hunter 27 is designed for single or double handed sailing and has an extremely livable interior.

These boats are exceptional coastal cruisers with moderate performance, and high marks on ease of sailing and comfort.

Fountaine Pajot  Mahe 36 Catamaran
“Learning Curves”

This Cruising World Magazine review, says it all:  “She may be the smallest in the Fountaine Pajot lineup, but this cat is packed with great features for comfort, speed, and sail handling.  Her hulls’ waterline beam is narrow – a key factor in getting a cat through the water quickly, but above the water, the hulls flare out for increased living space and buoyancy.”

A pair of large sliding doors opens the salon and galley to the cockpit.

Her 3 cabin layout is roomy and perfect for live aboard teaching, whether in Narragansett Bay or the crystal blue waters of the Virgin Islands

Inside, surrounded by light-colored, satin-finished wood, a table for six has a great all-around view and converts to a double bed for extra guests.  FP and it’s designer’s have created a fun, comfortable, entry-level cruising cat that is certain to lure.

The 2008 Beneteau 40 represented a wholly new generation of cruising yachts when it was launched and more recent boats are all built on a similar design.
