Fancy shit breaks
We prefer to keep things simple…and built stout as hell. Overly elaborate designs may look good on a computer screen, but can fail in the real world. In a workboat, simplicity and reliability go hand in hand. Whether your job is in fire/rescue, research, diving, oil spill response or any number of workboat applications, you can be confident that a 35’ Munson is built to stand up to the most demanding tasks.

Our clients say it best…
“Munson has done an excellent job building the ultimate high-speed aluminum catamaran transport/hunting vessel for Alaskan Adventure Tours. The workmanship on this boat is second to none. With over 25 years of operating boats in the unpredictable waters of Alaska, this is the safest most comfortable auxiliary vessel that I ever had the pleasure to operate.”
