Island Trader, 37', 1978

The Meander has just undergone a complete refurbish from top to bottom. The boat was recently (2009) hauled out and the hull was cleaned, sanded, painted and surveyed.

  • The entire boat has been completely painted with Awl Grip paint professionally.
  • All wood throughout the boat, inside and out has been restored and treated.
  • This boat is completely original. No modifications or changes to the original sold boat. It can be compared to the original sales brochure and is identical.
  • When I say original take me literally. That means no nail holes in the walls, no screw holes. Original !!!
  • The only major modification that is not original is the installation of a new Coast Guard approved holding tank and macerator pump. And of course all Coast Guard required safety equipment has been added.
  • Some small things like a battery switch, GPS Chartplotter, Depth Gauge, New Electric Toilet (12 volt). All else is just as was sold new. Even original 36hp diesel engine.

    This boat is a very rare boat. Built by the Chung Hwa Boatbuilding Co., Taiwan. Very hard to find for sale and especially in the original condition. They are hand crafted one at a time. The luxurious interior is all teak and all hand carved. A very, very spacious and beautiful boat that sails steady, strong and graceful. This is true traditional sailing at its best.

  • This boat is in like new condition and ready to sail.
