"What more could you want?" Is what you ask yourself once you've spent just a bit of time on our 40. Based on a proven Cecil Robbins hull, the Mathews 40 offers you long-range cruising with all the comforts of home.
Supporting watermen of the Chesapeake Bay for years, this stable, deadrise hull not only cruises on the glass-smooth surfaces of the water, but can also cut through choppy waters when weather blows up out of nowhere.
The cockpit area is typically non-skid, however teak is optional. An aft steering station allows you the option to drive from inside or outside, with remote control handling available as well. Optional fly bridge, transom gate, rocket launchers, and swim platform can accommodate the most avid of fishermen, swimmers, and special accommodations are available for handicapped individuals who want to boat independently.
The salon area can completely customized, with the helm, galley, seating, and berths available in any layout. In the cabin down below, you're equipped with an enclosed full head with shower - optional separate shower is available. A large built-in bureau provides an enormous amount of storage space, along with the hanging locker and under v-berth storage areas. Either traditional v-berth or center-line berth sleeping arrangements are offered. With our blackwater 40, multiple staterooms are available.
If you want a beautiful boat built with quality and longevity in mind, catered to your specific wants/needs, look no further.
Mathews Brothers only uses the best of today's hi-tech boat building materials. There are no wooden stringers, no wooden framing, no wooden cockpit floors, nor are there any structural plywood bulkheads. Our hulls are solid FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic), a material ideally suited to high stress environments subject to thermal cycling situations where optimum structural properties are desired. A full length keel protects the prop and rudder from accidental groundings in shallow waters. All components are either molded fiberglass pieces or constructed using a combination of fiberglass and PVC core materials, including the cockpit liner (floor). Where supports are needed, they are fabricated of aluminum, pvc core or fiberglass; not wood. Mathews Brothers boats are built tough to last.
