Not commissioned until late 2007, "Check Six" is a beautiful custom-built Chesapeake Bay deadrise designed by Cecil Robbins and built by Mathews Brothers, LLC of Denton, MD. The Robbins deadrise design is well-known around the Bay for offering a very soft ride in a chop, stability in a beam-sea, and exceptional fuel efficiency. "Check Six" was custom built for the current owner, and is one of the finest boats built by the respected Mathews Brothers yard. She has the sturdy hull of a true work-boat, and the interior of a fine yacht. Inexpensive to operate and maintain, she cruises an easy 18 knots while burning only 15 gallons per hour (@ 1.33 NM per gallon) with her single low-hour (230hours) Yanmar 480 hp powerplant, and tops out at @ 24 knots. She has an enormous cockpit with 2nd steering station, electric-lift engine box with cushions, two fish boxes, cockpit overhang, transom door, swim platform, cockpit shower, cockpit U-line refrigerator with ice maker, rod holders, and a large cooler with cushioned seating. The interior is "yacht-finished" and includes a single stateroom forward with centerline berth, split-head layout with Vacu-flush to starboard and dedicated shower to port, open salon arrangement with dinette and galley to port, main helm and convertible settee to starboard, and a beautiful high-gloss teak and holly sole throughout.
Other notable features include: Vetus Bow Thruster, FLIRnight vision system, electronic single-lever controls, 9kw genset, Raymarine E120 electronics package, remote spotlight, ship's computer with Dell monitor (linked to Nav system,cable, and DVD player), Kenwood stereo system, 2-zone air conditioning system, dual racors, 4 new AGM batteries, Xantrex Inverter system, bench-style Stidd helm chair with electronic adjustment, anchor windlass, and so much more. Please see "full specs" for complete description.
"Check Six" is a very diverse boat in that she can be seriously cruised (perfect "Great Loop" boat), fished (although she has never been put to task), or day-tripping with a group of guests. She is as beautiful as she is functional. Very well done!
