Jersey City, NJSell a boat like this
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.
