This classic Matthews Cabin Cruiser is a true beauty. Almost completely professionally restored at a shipyard that specializes in wooden boats, this is much more than a typical project boat. Over 2000 hours have already been put into the restoration, with more to come.

The project began in October 2008 with the bottom, replacing every butt block including the rudder and strut blocks. The bottom was recaulked, and hull sides routed to give definition, then repainted with z spar enamel paint.

The old canvas top was removed, and the top/sides of the salon/cabin were re-done with fiberglass. The brightwork was stripped and refurbished, the wood and all molding was sanded and varnished with 8 coats of Epifanes.

All of the interior cabinets and woodwork were stripped, sanded, repainted. *All of the hardware is original* Even the compass.

The ceiling of the salon/cockpit has been done in white perforated vinyl. Also, all of the 3/4" teak deck has been refinished.

The salon and cabin top and sides were fiberglassed using west epoxy and painted with awl grip paint.

The head is being rebuilt and will be replaced. There is a new water heater and new seacocks as well.

For the interested buyer:

The price will include 6 Months of inside storage where she is, and that any work needed to be done on her could be done here by us.

If you would like to repower the boat, the owner will include the labor for a discounted rate.

If you would like to upgrade the electronics, the owner will include the labor at a discount.

Any additional work you are interested in can be negotiated at a reduced rate.

This boat is a gem - absolutely gorgeous in every way. She will make someone VERY happy.

The owner will have a refrigerator and head installed as well.
