  4. CHB 42 Sundeck

    CHB 42 Sundeck

    Jersey City, New Jersey
    1985
    $159,900

    Built by CHB (Chung Hwa Boatworks) in Taiwan, the Present 42 Sundeck was a popular Asian import during the 1980s thanks to an impressive mix of modern styling and traditional teak interior. Her sundeck design allows for maximum space below as well as on deck, and an efficient semi-displacement hull makes the Present 42 an economical boat to operate. Below decks, the two-stateroom interior features a roomy main salon with standard lower helm forward to starboard. A breakfast bar to port overlooks the galley, and a sliding door at the helm provides easy deck access. The parquet salon sole is an attractive feature, and large windows provide plenty of natural lighting and good helm visibility. Opposite the galley is a convertible booth dinette. Forward, the guest stateroom has over/under berths to port and private access to the forward head. Aft, the full-width master stateroom has a walkaround queen berth, private ensuite head with stall shower, and washer/dryer cabinet. The Present’s covered aft deck is perfect for entertaining. Twin 135hp Lehmans diesels offer cruising speeds from 8 to 10 knots. Well-maintained during her still blossoming life, this CHB Present 42 is one of a kind, with beautiful teak cabinetry and wood parquet floors throughout. Tastefully appointed and recently gone under rigorous refurbishment. She’s powered by simple, reliable, and fuel efficient naturally aspirated Lehman 135hp diesel engines, which cruise her at a very comfortable and efficient 8 knots (equaling a range of almost 1000 nautical miles). Currently, the vessel’s docked in the upper New York harbor (slip transferrable with dockmaster’s permission). Her generous design makes for an ideal live aboard in port or Great Loop cruiser.

  5. CHB Ponderosa

    CHB Ponderosa

    Port Townsend, Washington
    1987
    $129,000

    PLEASE EMAIL ME AT IMKONTIKI@GMAIL.COM FOR A COMPLETE DESCRIPTION. Space is limited here. "DREAMS TOO", (Licensed as "Kon Teaki", (teak, get it)?   There are many new boat owners lately, (some just want a luxury way to Social Distance). Hence the boat shortage has begun. Since most boat adds don't explain their boats in detail, (and its upgrades), let me do that for you. For those that know boats, just look at the Photos. NOTE: Engine and engine room photos coming soon.   For those that know boats; the perfect "Deck" photos should be enough! Rarely do you see a Deck this nice! Here's your chance to own "Dreams Too", a very well cared for CHB, "Ponderosa".  The CHB "Ponderosa" is one of the rarest of "CHB" Yachts. They were built in one of the more "experienced" Taiwan boat yards at the time. Among Trawler enthusiasts, this  stable fuel efficient boat is a charm in The Pacific North-West. And many confuse it with the more expensive Grand Banks line. A very similar boat without the expensive name and price attached to it.  Most of these CHB boats were shipped here specifically for The Puget Sound, Canada and Alaska cruising. Making this an ideal vessel for the PNW Cruise-Living.   Dreams Too is truly the nicest Taiwan era trawler I have seen. And I shopped for 6 months looking at every CHB in the Washington and Portland area. I'd travel for hours just to look at one. This includes a few boats that remain listed here and on other sites years later, (soft deck problems). A, "CHB" was the first boat my broker showed to me. Right then I knew I needed this brand or something similar. It was the hand carved teak that sold me. Go to "Trawlers Forum" and read of all about the CHB lovers, (it's a cult like Ducati or Jaguar owners). Once you own one, it's all you desire. Plus this one has years of meticulous maintenance. And over $45,000 in recent improvements, (email me). Simply put, this makes her better than new in many regards, (they didn't have these technologies when she was built). Just the improved Diesal heater alone is worth the upgrade from when it was new. With her aft cabin and V-birth configuration, she is perfect for a family or owners with guests. The bedrooms have plenty of privacy and both have separate bathrooms. This along with built-in furnishings, drawers, windows, mirrors and cabinets. Plus two LARGE hatches that let the sun or starlight shine in. The photos here do not do this boat justice, (it's a beautifu). There's an abundance of warm  hand-crafted Burmese Teak inside and out. Let's talk about the teak. Some local adds state, "little Teak to maintain". No, you want teak, it's what makes a CHB a CHB. Dreams Too exterior Teak is just as nice as the interior Teak. The nicely re-sealed Teak deck has NO soft spots, (a rarity). And when it's this nice, simple maintenance is all that's required. If it's already ruined by water damage, it costs thousands to replace and repair. Also, the downfall of many CHB boats is there soft spot Teak deck problems  from water damage, (ask any Broker). Again, these deck soft spots will cost thousands to repair, (you really can't fix it). Dreams Too has none of these problems. If you hear of one soft spot on a deck, walk away as there's more. Please note, all of these CHB boats, (and many more) have had some sort of water problems, (this one included). It's a known and part of their history especially with the, "Sun Deck" models, (again ask any broker). But it's how the owner's have dealt with it and or re-seal the teak, windows and decks when needed. That's what makes this one stand out. Keep an eye out for how long the boats have been up for sale and the frequent price drops. These are the boats with water damage and or soft decks. I've toured many of compare, and you should too. Mines moss free as well. Remember, if an owner states they've never had water issues on any boat, they might be lying. Nowhere will you find better outdoor preserved Teak railings, cap rails, cabinets, decking, and windows than on Dreams Too. Just walk the docks and compare the teak to other boats. The outdoor teak decks on Dreams have recenty been sealed. THERE ARE NO MISSING PLUGS, (again a rarity). The steering wheel is also solid teak. She spent the past years in Fresh Water and under cover most it's life, (hence the nice teak). There's lots more, so email me at Imkontiki@gmail.com for a full description please.
