Just another day at the beach
The same heavy-duty construction and attention to detail that we put in our larger vessels are also used in our 24’ Series. Incorporating a wide bottom for maximum stability and 64” wide bow door, you can rest assured that you have the most proven 24’ workboat made today. It is popular for transporting ATVs, dive gear, oil boom, fire pumps and anything else that will fit on board. Our 24 is even big enough for an enclosed cabin without compromising too much deck space.
It’s difficult to convey the incredible strength, fit and finish of a 24’ Munson. Today’s Munsons are a product of over 2,500,000 man hours of striving to design & build the world’s finest welded aluminum workboats. That’s why our customers will tell you that a Munson is twice the boat of any other 24.
