A Seaworthy Investment
There are a whole lot of 25 foot boats out there, and indeed, some very good, but there is only one 25 foot boat that can say that its built like a Munson. The Munson 25’ Series is offered in both mono hull and catamaran and is available in 8’6” beam for easily trailering – or – 10’ beam if you want the most capable 25’ landing craft available.
The Munson 25’ Series is built using ¼” aluminum hull plating to provide quiet, comfortable ride. At Munson Boats, no compromises are made, no considerations are over-looked, no corners are cut. Ask any Munson Boat owner and they will tell you that no other welded aluminum boat is built like a Munson.

Our clients say it best…
“Our PACKMAN is working out great. We put it to a lot of good use last fall, moving supplies to and from our remote property. We also used it for hunting and fishing, as a point of interest the first fish I caught from the boat was a nice King salmon. We have had a great deal of enjoyment with the boat and it has always performed very well with all loads and weather conditions. Overall, we think it is a great boat and we really enjoy it, and even in rough water it feels very stable.”
