It’s a workhorse and a thoroughbred
The term Workhorse refers to a particular type of horse that was bred to haul heavy loads all day long without tiring. On the other end of the spectrum is the Thoroughbred. The Thoroughbred was bred to race. It can reach levels of performance that other horses simply cannot. A Munson 65 is both of those things. She can carry huge loads without a problem. At the same time, the offshore-capable Munson 65 is a very high-performance boat.
Munson 65’ Series is designed for ocean transport and moving payloads of up to 20 tons. Waves never get tired, and neither does a Munson 65. There’s plenty of space for equipment & provisioning, large fuel tanks for extended range, while still keeping a low draft for beaching and sharp bow entry for navigating heavy seas. Whether you’re shopping for an expedition vessel or simply expediting cargo, a Munson 65 can handle the job… especially if you need a thoroughbred, a workhorse, or a combination of both.

Performance: It was important to us that the LCE retained all of the rough water performance and serious high speed that Munson Boats are known for. With that in mind twin MAN CRM1550 turbo diesels mated to Hamilton 521 Jet drives were chosen. The LCE is capable of 48 mph and a comfortable cruising speed of 22 mph. Extensive insulation and sound deadening techniques were employed to make sure that the LCE remains comfortable and quiet, even at 42 knots.
Accommodations: Designed for long distance cruising and entertaining the main salon features a large galley with high end appliances and Corian countertops and dishwasher. The large main dining area features wrap around seating and offers great visibility for passengers while underway. The lower deck is home to four staterooms. Twin owner's staterooms are located aft and offer queen berths and large closets. Forward staterooms located on each side of the main passageway feature three bunk beds and hanging lockers. Two identical head compartments feature spacious walk-in showers, double sinks and marine heads.
