28′ Classic Dayboat for fun or fishing.

Similar to the Alden designed Quill the Matson S is a stylish low power day boat. Designed by reknowned designers William and John Atkin ( see another of their designs previously built by Roeboats ) She’s a single engined boat using a 100hp modern diesel she’ll give quiet and enjoyable performance up to a top speed of 15 knots which is plenty fast for many enjoyable days on the water.

She has a very large cockpit for you and your family to fish from or just laze about and enjoy the adventure and relaxation unique to a day on the water. Her wheelhouse has a modest galley, full length berth ( a V berth can be built in forward if required) and a full height toilet/head compartment. Of course you can have the interior of the boat arranged just as you want it.

As you can see from the lines drawing your boat will have a beautifully flared and therefore dry riding bow that sweeps aft to a classic tumblehome stern that you are unlikely to find on a fiberglass boat (it won’t come out of a mould). She as a sharp entry and her long keel will make her track straight in rough water it also protects the rudder and propellor from damage and allows her to dry out level.

All in all Matson S will prove to be a boat that you will love owning and she should give you and your family and friends many many years of enjoyment.

This boat may also prove to be perfect as a tender or chase boat for a Super yacht or Yach club.
