You will find this classic 52 Matthews Motoryacht a pleasure to view. Great effort has gone into maintaining her originality. The sweeping teak decks, the canvas covering on the cabin top painted a soft green, the gleaming white hull with her splined plank seams, and sparkling varnished mahogany are traditional features not found on modern yachts. This boat has received upgrades to most of its original systems. The engines are rebuilt twin Detroit 671s. Newer electrical system, upgrades to the galley and much more. And all of this with an eye for keeping with the original appearances.
This boat will serve its next owner as a great traveler for exploration of the Pacific Northwest waters, and provide the pride of ownership that comes from owning a real thing of beauty.
These boat details are subject to contract.
