Matchless is a beautiful 1906 26′ catboat built by W.W. Phinney of Monument Beach Cape Cod. The owner has provided us with extensive documentation of this boat including surveys from 1985, 1996 and 2013.
There has been a fair amount of restoration work done; updated rudder, pintails, gudgeons, rebuilt Edson gear, updated binnacle w/stand, rebuilt Westerbeke 4-107, updated fuel tank and prop w/line cutter, rebuilt bow sprint, updated fully battened main sail, updated centerboard trunk, rebuilt galley with stove, updated head and holding tank, ss standing rigging and running rigging, full cockpit tent cover, updated boom among other improvements. She needs someone who is passionate about classic wooden boats and can complete her restoration to return her to her original glory. Her 2013 survey concluded with a fair market value to be $30,000. She is seriously for sale…make an offer…you never know!
