We are pleased to introduce the Williams 28 Bass Boat - a new take on the Stanley 28, an old favorite, of which 15 have been built.

Almost three years after selling their Stanley 36, a couple from Marion, MA, has decided they need a new way to enjoy fishing & cruising Buzzards Bay with their grandchildren. Having decided that they wanted something smaller than the 36 but retaining the inherent stability, sea kindliness and good looks, the natural choice was to move to the Stanley 28.

It’s almost impossible, if you are boating in Southern NE, not to see and appreciate the looks and style of a Mackenzie Bass Boat, Dyer 29, Palmer Scott, Crosby Striper or Fortier 26. They all embody classic good looks and excellent reputations. The new Williams 28 Bass Boat has combined some of the characteristics of these beauties along with our reputation, solid construction and hull design. Add a new generation Yanmar 260hp electronic engine and you have a fast comfortable platform on which to chase stripers.

Construction started in February 08 in anticipation of a June launch. The hull will be hand-laid solid fiberglass with the decks and platform using composite panel construction. The idea is to keep the boat light and simple with the engine and steering being the only mechanical systems aboard. A small head is being installed in the forepeak for comfort. The windshield, either varnished teak or fiberglass with a teak cap, will be the defining component of the boat. This is what will set it apart from the other designs and give it that unique, signature, Stanley Yacht look and feel. Natural teak toe and rub rails will complete the wood package keeping maintenance at a minimum.

The hull is to be burgundy with tan decks and platform. Besides being fun to zip around in the Williams 28 Bass Boat will be a head turner in any harbor.
