I miss Sailing so I am selling my Trawler, it is in very good condition and ready to travel.
1988 KHA SHING 40′ Spindrift Trawler. Upperdeck seating for 6 to 8 people + full helm station, retractable Bimini top and plenty of storage.
13’×11′ aft deck with hard top coverage.
Crain for roof top dingy storage.

All Teak wood interior with teak and holly floor thruout.
The original headliner is in excellent condition.
Molded nonskid on the deck stands proud for sure footing.

Main cabin has helm station, galley up with double sink, 3 burner stove oven, apartment size refrigerator and dining table.
Private full beam aft cabin with walk around Queen bed, head with shower and plenty of storage. Two large stainless steel water tanks are below the queen bed.
The head compartments have fiberglass walls, headliners and floors, easily kept clean and shiney.
Single FORD LEHMAN 135 special Diesel runs very well, clock reads 4,571 hours. oil cooler equipped keeping the engine oil unburnt and looking clean. The engine oil also circulates thru the injector pump keeping it cooler.
The transmission has no leaks and operates as it should. Very good fuel economy, 1,900 rpm pushes 6 to 7 knots. Top speed is 8 knots.
Fuel consumption approximately 5 mpg. Diesel tankage 270 gallons. Range approximately 1,350 miles.
This Trawler was built in Taiwan and built using (DIVINYCELL PVC FOAM as Core) in the decks, Stringers and everywhere core was needed so no rot. Last year (2019) I replace the original Diesel fuel tanks with custom made aluminum tanks (original specifications of 135 gallons each) and installed them myself. I removed the old tanks and took them to a well respected builder to duplicate .
No water leaks under the windows, however some light delam. and water stains are visible under some of the Windows from years past.
Personally, I would only consider owning a boat with a single propeller and rudder that are well protected by the keel so when you hit a floating log you will keeep going with no damage. It is equipped with a bow thruster for easy docking.
The aluminum sliding side entry doors port and starboard in the main cabin are also a must for easy access to the side decks from the lower helm.
It is equipped with a 9 kw.Northern Lights diesel generator that runs fine and the clock reads ( 764 hours).two newer A/C units. New RAYMARINE CHART PLOTER, AUTOHELM.
In March of this year 2020 I hauled out at Indian Town Marina and applied 3 coats of bottom paint and then headed for the Bahamas for a month. I am very pleased at the way she handed the seas and high winds. If you are in the market for a very comfortable practical low maintenance and economical Trawler for k then contact me and I will tell you more. The boat is at my dock behind my home in fresh water here in Okeechobee city Florida. I unloaded all of the personal gear and unnecessary clutter to give you an unobstructed view of every nook and cranny. I am sure you will be impressed as I am with the build and the good clean condition.
I can show you the boat anytime, I have a Florida title in my name.
The purchase prices includes a trip to Indian Town Marina to have a look at the bottom and delivery to your dock by yours truly. I am a licensed Captain of 35 years and it will be a pleasure to deliver your new boat for you.
