225 hp turbo charged Lehmans. We did the Champlain/St. Lawrence because of the Erie closure and highly recommend it. BEAUTIFUL

Just got an email from Jack Sarin, now a mega yacht designer, and he did the design for the 38 and then stretched it for a 42.

Just thought it was interesting,

Bob

This one close to us. What speed does she go at WOT? Is this mostly a Volvo boat? Cruise speed?

Drooling. Might chat with broker. Too much going on to try to buy.

But still...

I think the majority come with Leahman 135s. You will see a few with Perkins and even fewer with Volvos. I think the preferred models would be Lehman powered.

What a beautiful vessel! Twin Volvo's, 200 hp it says. I got up to 12.5 mph with my girl once (twin Lehman 135's). Had locked into the Mississippi at the Harvey lock, headin south to the Industrial Lock. River was WAY high, I thought steering would be a concern, but turned out to be a non issue . I love to look at pics of the later Present 42's and see the areas she was improved on.

According to Jack Sarin the 38 was commissioned by Jerry Schei of Edmonds Yacht Sales. I contacted Edmonds and this is their response: "Sorry we do not have any information on your vessel". I guess that's the end of that.

Bob, is there any difference between the 38s like yours and the more "traditional" looking 38s??? I think Present(or whoever) was aiming more at the motoryacht crowd with your boat(hence more powerful engines) and the trawler crowd with the more traditional 38....usually powered by Lehman/Perkins 135s...

Of course I go looking for a "traditional" and come up with one that has Lehman 225s...

1987 Hartmann Palmer Sundeck Trawler Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

The only reason I am posting on this thread is the Present 38 and 42 have always been VERY high on my list and hence I have shopped them heavily. The traditionally styled 38 are very hard to find. The boat above is labeled "Hartmann Palmer" but it is the same as a Present/CHB 38...although maybe with bigger engines. I lean towards the 38 simply because of size. The 42 is GIGANTIC!!! The 38 seems like about the same boat just scaled down a bit...and quite handsome I might add. Anyway....for what it is worth to people interested in this boats. Search CHB....Chung Hwa...Hartmann Palmer...etc.

Quite a few differences between the Hartmann Palmer and our Present 38. We don't have the side doors, the front cabin is a centerline, not V-berth, the heads are different. The info from Jack Sarin was that he thought there were about 20-30 of these built. The 42 is a stretched version of the 38. I don't know if his numbers included the 42 or was just for the 38. I have seen 38s listed on the West Coast as Nautiques which is the yard that built the 38. The Nautique 38 is the same as the Present 38. Our 38 has the Nautique logo on the front deck and the wiring diagrams we got with the boat are by Nautique Yachts in Taiwan.

I am sure there are differences. My only point was the boat I posted was also sold as a Present 38. Have you seen the traditionally styled 38s that I am talking about....IOW the Present 38s that look exactly like this Hartmann Palmer?

As far as I have been able to find out, Present was the name of a guy in New York state who was either a broker or dealer and put his name on the Nautique 38. He may have done the same with the Hartmann Palmer. For me, there are too many structural differences for the two to be the same design. But who knows?

Hi folks. Resurrecting this thread because I'm considering a Present as my next boat here on the next 6 months or so. There is a Present 40 near me that I will check out in a week or so. I've also been on a 42. Haven't seen any mention of the 40 in this thread. Does anyone know of any distinct differences between the 40 and 42 besides scale. I have seen pics of the bow and the 42's bow is more vertical than the 40.

Hello...
Over the weekend I happened to have a tape measure in my hand at the EXACT time I thought to myself: I wonder how much headroom this aft cabin has??
Turns out it and the saloon are both sporting 6' 3.5". Not bad. For those more "vertically endowed" than I- this could be a good thing😊

Got our Present 38 up for sale. Decided we are not power boat people, want to go back to a sail boat. The question has come up about the fuel tanks, what are they made of. I put a magnet to one and it was not magnetic. I would think that rules out black iron. Thumping them makes a metallic noise so I'm thinking AL or SS? Anybody know for sure what their tanks are made of?
