Classic Australian Wooden Power Boats




Matthews Brothers Boats


Neil Matthews sent me in some pictures typical of the boats that he and his brother built during the
 1950's and 60's. Known as Matthew Bros, they were based in Melbourne and concentrated on high
powered ski boats. 





















































The boats below were not built by the Matthews, but needed to be shown for the nostalgia part of it all.
