1979 CHB Trawler

San Pedro, United States


This 40' CHB Golden Star Trawler is powered by twin Ford Lehman 135 naturally aspirated diesels (120hp) with low hours that run well. Two double staterooms, with two full heads, upper and lower helms.

Bargain-priced for a fast sale and in consideration of repairs and projects not completed by current owner, see full specs for more information, then call for your appointment to view. This is a deal for a buyer with moderate DIY skills and would make a great liveaboard or Catalina cruiser!
