Looking for a classic yacht that will turn heads wherever you cruise?

No need to update or restore this one. It has all been done for you!

Under her present owner, the Matthews emerged from a restoration process 8 years ago, during which all systems were upgraded. Powered by twin Crusader 454 carburated gas engines with relatively mid-range hours, she comfortably cruises at 8-10 knots (8 GPH with a range of 325 miles) and can reach a top speed of 20 knots. She has undergone a rewiring, while interior and exterior surfaces have been stripped, sanded, and painted. Varnished surfaces average around 5 coats. All bronze fittings have been rechromed. A 2021 hull survey (available upon request) showed only minor recommendations, which were immediately taken care of by the owner.

Information On Condition

This Mathews 42 is in excellent condition. The seller has recently had the vessel examined and there are no issues with the wood hull, deck, or interior.

Per the seller, all systems are in working order.

You will not find many wood vessels kept in such prime condition. The owner has always kept the boat stored under cover and has been very proactive in her maintanence and updates.
