LOW HOUR REBUILT ENGINE, TWO STATEROOMS AND HEADS! If you have patience and the time, this is one old boat with a lot of potential for a new lease on life. Under the dust of her recent years of neglect, she still easily shows her many possibilities. Do you love low- to mid-level renovation projects? If so, this is an affordable chance to show your talent for bringing out the beautiful in a forgotten classic. This CHB Tri-cabin trawler was first introduced to the market in 1974 and remained in production for 27 years. She is unquestionably one of the very most popular trawler-styled yacht of this size ever sold in the U.S.

A beautiful sliding wood door behind the starboard side helm is the main entrance into the cabin. Teak is everywhere, including nautical parquet flooring. Even with all the dark finishes, there are plenty of windows and ports to keep this space from appearing dark. Straight ahead is the functional port-side galley with a Norcold AC/DC refrigerator, a Magic Chef four-burner stove/oven combo appliance with a cover that nicely extends the usable counter space, and a stainless steel sink with pressure water that is positioned in front of a large sliding picture window where you can watch the world drift by as you make a fabulous meal. The galley has plenty of storage space, with five drawers, a large cabinet and storage trays. The galley is a part of the main mid-ship salon area and also features a L-shaped dinette that seats four adults. A two-person settee is positioned across at port. Storage drawers under all seating offer plenty of space for storing Access to the engine room I through the main cabin sole. In the bow, the forward cabin has a port and a starboard berth arranged in a V configuration and a privacy door. There is a hanging locker and drawer storage, as well as a small sitting bench. Also in the bow is one of two vessel heads with a Raritan toilet and shower fixture. In the aft cabin, there is a double berth, single berth, a night table, huge windows, plenty of drawer storage and a hanging locker, and a storage staircase leading to an aft exit hatch that is covered by a newer canvass. Open space above the hanging locker is an excellent place to mount a DVR and TV. The larger of the two vessel heads is located here and has a larger hand sink, some counter space, a large mirror, storage cubbies and a shower fixture. The on-boar water needs are met by a 200-gallon water tank, 11 gallons of hot water and a 15-gallon holding tank. The chill of winter is kept at bay with the Espar oil fired forced air hydronic furnace. Whether going away for a weekend or an extended cruise the interior space on this boat model has been maximized and is a very livable boat which offers completely separate and private accommodations for two adult couples, plus plenty of room for stores and belongings. Headroom is well over six feet throughout and interior.

 On Deck:
There have been some relatively-recent upgrades around the exterior of this CHB. Since 2002, the top of the aft cabin was re-fiberglassed and in 2005, the top of the forward cabin was re-fiberglassed. The fore and side decks were taken up and coosa board was encapsulated in resin on a fiberglass base. A faux teak product called Plastideck was laid down over the coosa board. In 2010, new canvas hatch covers, window covers and the flybridge cover were custom fabricated. One of the nicest features of this boat model are the wide side decks with high bulwark. It really makes this boat family-friendly, especially if you have small dogs or toddlers who will be enjoying this boat with you. The additional railing allows an adult to pass from bow to stern safely and comfortably. The foredeck and aft deck are smaller to make maximum use of the interior; however, you can set up a few folding deck chairs or use this space for fishing fun. The flybridge is accessed by a ladder from from atop the aft cabin and encompasses the entire main saloon cabin top. The flybridge is very roomy with enough space to store equipment, a freezer, or to set up a small patio table. Two bench seats offer a place for folks to sit while the captain is navigating from this upper helm. This CHB is rigged with a mast and boom for carrying a steadying sail although, in most cases, the mast is used only for mounting radar and radio antennas or raising flags.

 Engine and Mechanical:
Her single 1975 Ford Lehman 120 horsepower diesel engine and marine gear were removed and rebuilt in 2002 and only have 850 rebuilt hours on it (4,000 hours total). She has a relaxing cruise speed of 7.5 knots. Her two steel fuel tanks carry a total of 600 gallons of fuel. She uses approximately 2.5 gallons of fuel per hour and has a lengthy range of about 800 nautical miles. In 2004, both steel fuel tanks were pulled out and new steel bottoms were welded on and epoxy paint applied. Tank drains were also installed. When you d like to anchor for the night, you ve got an Ideal 12 VDC Wildcat 40-pound anchor hooked to 275 feet of chain and line and a Danforth electric winch.

 Electrical and Electronics:
This package has some electronics for navigation and communications; however, both helms have room for plenty more to be added. Included are an Apelco AR 16 radar, a West Marine/Sea Range VHF, a General Electric CB, and a Furuno 600L color depth sounder. When rainy weather hits, you can still navigate from the interior helm. The three electric wipers will keep your visibility clear through the glass. While underway, keep things running with your Kubota Apollo 6 kw diesel generator set with raw water cooling. You also have a 65 amp alternator and a Xantrex 1500 watt inverter. While at the dock, plug her into 30 amp shore power.

 Notes and Extras:
The CHB Tri-Cabin Trawler is a very comfortable coastal cruiser that generally offers excellent value and an outstanding owners association/support group. This boat has been well taken care of until recent years and is awaiting your gentle touch. Call today to see this boat in person.
