The Story of the Honey Badger

The Honey Badger is a 1931 Matthews standard cruiser. Built in Port Clinton, Ohio by the "Matthews Company", she is the sistership to the "Santana" which featured in two Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall movies "To Have and Have Not" and "Key West."

While considered by most to be a classic motoryacht, her roots lie closer to the dawn of the sport fishing industry!

Prior to 1930, the Honey Badger received the highly acclaimed Blue Button from the Avalon Tuna Club which meant she and her crew caught and landed, unmutilated on rod and real, a Bluefin tuna over 100 pounds. The international Gamefish Association was later founded in 1939 and adopted many of the practices in use at that time.

The original binnacle and ship's wheel including "the fighting chair" are all still aboard, intact and still in use today.

Many dignitaries and high-profile Hollywood personalities have been aboard including Ernest Hemingway (a known associate of the owner) who reportedly came aboard to take notes and measurements just before leaving California for New York where he placed the order to build his boat, the "Pilar."
