These Master Marines were built in New England for Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing.

In 1980 a new boat company was born under the banner of Master Marine in response to a challenge. New England fishermen needed a specialized craft to pursue giant bluefin tuna. The design criteria were curious: able to subdue 1,000 pound fish, manageable by a two-men crew, narrow-beam for trailering, seaworthy, stable, and tough as nails!

Henry Masters designed a classic center console. Longer, at 28 feet, than any before it, it featured a radically sharp entry to enhance tough water handling, making it one of the earliest true deep-V fishing boats ever built. Masters added wide chines with a reverse edge to provide stability while trolling and at anchor to offset a narrow beam. Construction was 100% hand-laid fiberglass which made for a strong, tough boat.

The boat was ahead of its time in design, appearance and performance. Fleets of them prowled the tuna grounds during the commercial season and encouraged a new following. New England's serious fishermen liked the lines, accommodating ride, trailerability and durability of Master's big center console. Before long, they were placing orders, too.

The original 28-foot center console has withstood the test of time and is still on the water today! It forged the way for all the fine fishing boats manufactured by the company now called True World Marine. Designed for serious fishermen. Built tough to be fished hard and last for decades. Powered for solid performance with maximum economy. Constructed from the bottom up to provide uncompromising safety. And priced to provide a level of value that is hard to find in today's world of over-hyped, over-priced fiberglass boats.

She comes with a new T-Top, and has a brand new paint job.

These are built tough to handle just about anything.
