Years ago, the company started out building 50- to 100-foot commercial fishing boats in Alabama. Then, in 1980, True World Marine branched out, creating Master Marine, a New England builder of bluefin tuna boats. Henry Masters' design criteria for this 28-footer stipulated that the boat be nimble enough to handle 1,000-pound bluefin while being easily run by a crew of two. It had to be trailerable, seaworthy and stable. That is the heritage of the True World 28.
