Default Munson Hell Bender 34 Ft Aluminum Landing Craft $67000

Munson Hell Bender 34 Ft Aluminum Landing Craft

The Hell Bender was built in 1996 by Munson Boat works. The wear and tear is limited on this boat and it sits idle waiting its next application

Hull Dimensions
Length 34.6 ft
Width 11.5 ft-(mid ship)
Bow Width 8.6 ft
Deck-(From Cabin to Bow Door) 19.6 ft
Landing Door Width 6 ft

The cabin is basic but has a nice dash and breaker panel-all with quality wiring. The cabin was designed for minimal overnight accommodations but can sleep two people.

Cabin Dimensions
Length 7.8 ft
Width 7 ft
Height 6.25 ft
Cabin Walkway 1.6 ft
Ladder to Cabin Roof
Quality Sliding Door
Light Bar-(flips down from roof for transport)
Two remote spot lights mounted on light bar
2 Bunks
Diesel Cabin Heater
Two 6 Switch Breaker Panels
One 3 Switch Breaker Panel
Storage access beneath cabin
Bilge Pump and Switches
Quick Silver Shift/Throttle Controls
Quick Silver Gauges-RPM
400 Gallon Fuel Tank-(This is my best approximation)

Speed & Steering & Draw
With twin Mercury Salt Water Series motors- top speed was about 27 knots-(33 mph). The boat gets on step at about 16 knots for efficient cruising. The steering system has been removed but can be replaced. Generally these use boats use hynautic systems with control of two motors from inside the cabin. By looking at the waterline I would say it draws about 12-16 inches light.

Power Package
No Motors currently on boat
Set up for Mercury Outboards
1. Two Mercury 2 cycle oil reservoirs
2. Two Mercury Shift/Throttle Controls
3. Steering set up for two motors
Set up for a two 250 outboards, but can be downsized to smaller outboards.

The trailer looks to be in quality condition. Looking at it I’m assuming it is ready for a long distance haul. The bunk boards and trailer frame is not stressed or sagging. The boat sits really great on the trailer and you can tell the bunk boards have been matched well to the boat hull. In fact I think the trailer will allow you to fill up on 2400-3200 lbs of fuel as well as put a bobcat or couple pallets of lumber on board and tow, launch and recover with no problems. This could be beneficial in dealing with logistics in your application.

Hitch tow-(not 5th wheel)
Triple axle

Being manufactured at Munson Boats of Burlington Washington, this boat has quality construction. There are no significant dents, cracked welds, or corrosion. Only an occasional bent rail or slight ding or shallow scratch in the aluminum. The deck is sound and does not flex. For all intensive purposes the boat has not had significant modification. No strange welds or multiple “redos” of any kind.

Over the 12 years we had the boat we only operated about 26-30 months on the lake. Other than that the boat has been sitting in dry storage at our plant.

Year Built
The boat was built by Munson Boats in Burlington Washington in 1996.

We are willing to sell the boat with or without the power package, motor lifts/jack plates, aluminum deck material and trailer.
