Short & Stout
There is no other 23’ boat built as stout as a Munson. The Munson 23’ Series are built using all 1/4″ aluminum hull plating to provide a quiet, comfortable ride. Double that with the addition of the ¼” beaching plates for a full 1/2″ of aluminum where the vessel meets the shore. Our signature landing craft design provides more usable deck space than any conventional 23’ boat, offering plenty of room for ATV’s, dive gear, oil boom and anything else that needs to be moved on water.

Our clients say it best…
“The boat has been great, we have worked it to death and used it for a huge variety of duties, ranging from fire, rescue, emergency response and law enforcement, to restroom pump-outs, garbage hauling, ATV and equipment hauling, fish planting, fuel spill cleanup and buoy maintenance. The only things that have worn out in 5 years, with a lot of use and abuse have been the hinge on the battery compartment hatch and the upholstery on the bench seat.”
