New Jersey

  • Description:
    Available for purchase - 1949 Matthews Sedan Cruiser, Panache (see photo below). Very sound but needs some cosmetics; it’s in primer and needs varnish. The engines have been redone; one is together the other needs to be put together (a top-notch engine guy had worked on them and there’s nothing wrong, except it’s not together). In mostly original condition; complete with cork life preservers!! The boat is located at the Johnson Brothers Boatyard. The slip can be purchased along with the boat.

If interested, call Joyce Turner at 484-682-3625.

Model:
38’ Open Bridge Double Cabin Cruiser

Year:
1931

Price:
$235,000 OBO

Location:
Ithaca, NY

  • Description:
    The DOWAGER has been in bristol/excellent condition for the past 18 years, under the loving stewardship of a single owner. DOWAGER is structurally better than new after a 1998-2002 restoration where the hull was rebuilt from the deck down, replacing all 132 white oak ribs, oak keel, engine beds, mahogany transom, cedar deck and more. The hull is extremely fair and true to her lines. All DOWAGER’S systems are new as of 2002, including: engine controls, electrical panels, shore power, wiring, plumbing, heads, tanks, shower, refrigeration, and propane. Both cabins were restored to their original elegance, with beveled glass mirrors, new upholstery, and screen doors. Sleeps six. A great 360 degree view from the flying bridge with restored helm and seating. This 1931 classic has an exceptionally strong hull and modern electronics and systems, yet everything visible is of its original era, and museum quality. For example, a SeaFrost refrigeration system has been adapted to the original ice box under the settee on the bridge deck, but you can’t tell by looking at it. Two heads with traditional Wilcox-Crittendon bronze and porcelain toilets were installed in 2002, each with a 20 gallon holding tank. Shower with pressure hot and cold water system in forward head. Attwood 10.5 gallon hot water heater. The boat was repowered in 1988 with a 100 horsepower Westerbeke 6 cylinder diesel which has about 385 engine hours (only 55 hours since Jan 2009). DOWAGER comes totally equipped with everything from dock lines, Danforth anchor, boat hook, custom wooden swim ladder, wicker chairs, and much more. This is a spectacular family boat, three generations of our family have loved gathering for magical summer days of cruising, swimming and fun on Cayuga Lake. DOWAGER has been meticulously maintained and docked under cover since the 2002 restoration. The most recent survey estimates a replacement value of $500,000. Asking $235,000 or best offer. See www.mvdowager.com for more details. Boat location is Ithaca, NY. Call or text Sarah Howell (206) 200-0220.

Model:
40' Standard Sedan

Year:
1939/40

Price:
$59,000 OBO

Location:
Tacoma, WA

  • Description:
    The PIED PIPER is in excellent condition. Her hull is original and solid. Her engines are original and are in excellent condition. With her perfectly positioned twin engines, she steers and maneuvers like a dream. Her main salon feels like a comfortable living room. She has had just one owner for the past 15 years. The boat was professionally restored in 2004 and has been professionally and lovingly maintained ever since with an emphasis on keeping her original design, yet with the addition of many modern upgrades for comfort and safety. A few of the upgrades by the current owner are: radar, frig, freezer, 7K generator, oversize anchor with 300' chain and 300' line, 8' sailing dinghy, 6v system fully converted to 12v, fuel tanks replaced, water tank replaced, head system completely replaced, CD/stereo system added, etc. She was called a "38" model, but was stretched to 40' before launching by Matthews; she was built in 1939, but splashed in 1940. PIED PIPER has been moored under cover for the past 15 years (and likely for all her life) and is currently in a private boathouse (also for sale) at the Tacoma Yacht Club, Tacoma, WA.

Model:
42' FBCS

Year:
1955

Price:
$15,000 OBO

Location:
New York

  • Description:
    LUNA, a 1955 FBCS (Formally Rambling Boy from the Detroit area until 2006) is a beautiful Fly Bridge Convertible Sedan and is an amazing classic with the beautiful elliptical lines of the mid 1950’s. Powered by twin 454 Crusaders throttle body fuel injected engines. All original hardware with chrome is in excellent condition. New teak laid cockpit floor which opens into main salon by folding vanished doors creates an amazing amount of space for entertaining and cruising. Down below is the original galley with classic fridge and checker board floor. Head with separate shower. Main stateroom with a double and single and forward stateroom with 2 singles and a head with sink-(sleeps 5). On the bridge is an extended layout with seating forward of the helm. The top sides of LUNA where painstakingly blended so her seams give her a perfect finish. In her boat house, there are some components that need replaced due to LUNA being unplugged and her batteries depleting, causing her to take on water for a few hours - issues are Refrigerator condenser, Air conditioning condensers, generator and some wiring. With these things addressed she would stand out as one of the most beautiful Matthews in existence. She is located in a yard that can address anything that is needed on her to the highest standards.
