1971 Matthews 56 Motoryacht in Sanford, Florida

Stock #131611

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

This is a rare find of the classic 1971 Mathews motor yacht. This version has 2 staterooms with en-suite heads.

This motor yacht is in need of some major structural wood and deck repairs and will need to be fully renovated above decks. When complete, this will be a beautiful motor yacht for liveaboard or an extended cruise.

The boat is currently entered from the stern into a spacious living area. Forward of that is the main helm station. Below decks is the main salon leading to the master stateroom to Port. Down to the next level are the dining area and galley. Forward at this level is the V berth stateroom with ensuite head and wardrobes.

Access to the engine room is also on this level behind the stairs leading down.

Back in the upper living area is access to the Bridge deck. This again is spacious and a great deck for entertaining or motoring to a new cruising ground.

Overall this seems to be a sound boat with good bones that needs someone willing to invest the time and effort to restore it to her former glory.

According to the Mathews owners website, the 1971 Mathews 56 was the only Mathews built with a full fiberglass hull.

Information On Condition

This 1971 Mathews 56 needs a complete restoration to the upper decks and living quarters.

The mechanicals seems to be in good working order. The engines started easily and the owner states that the transmission and one of the 2 generators are working. There is A/C on the boat.

The head has been converted to have a holding tank. The master stateroom seems to be in good overall condition, and all systems there seem to be working.

The side-deck, particularly on the port side, is soft and will need to be replaced. The forward port windows and structure, and the rear port windows and structure will need to be replaced.

It is expected that most of the electronics will need to be replaced.
