I hope you specified that the bar inventory is included. Obviously a civilized owner.

Also the battery positives should be fuse protected and there should be battery "hold downs" fitted. Hopefully the battery boxes are acid resistant.

Nice boat. I like the full head in the FWD stateroom. That is hard to find in any of the sundeck boats. Most have a wet head which IMHO is worthless. The ER needs some TLC, especially the batteries but not a deal breaker.
I'm biding on an 87 CHB Ponderosa 42' next week that a friend has owned for 10 years. Almost the same exact layout. I used to own a 42' Californian LRC trawler. It was a great boat but had too much wood on deck. I spent way too much time varnishing. I've wanted a Sundeck for several years since several of my friends own them. Much better use of space.

Good luck and happy boating.

Fantastic fishing boat i completely refurbished her in 2015/16. She has the same engines Cummins 6BTA 370's. Mine run great with 1050 hours each.


Mine is listed on POP yachts and if she sell's its a farm or a jefferson

Good luck on the Ponderosa - we have basically the same boat. Believe CHB sold the 42 Sundecks on west coast as Ponderosa's and on the east and gulf coast as Presents. Ours has a custom (from factory) front cabin with bunks on starboard side and full head, (with separate full shower) on port side. We love the sundeck layout, as we have many many friends/family on the boat with us at any given time time, and that sundeck on the aft is another room - and ours has a nice wet bar with an icemaker You will love it!

I have spent some time on one of these and well remember having to balance on those danged batteries between two hot Cat 3208s trying not to burn myself. Thank goodness you have the narrower Cummins sixes. On the boat I was in, there was NO clearance under the Racor filters, and draining them required that the effluent run into the bilge. The tanks were top draw which I personally hate for their potential for loss of lose suction for a variety of reasons. I am definitely not a fan of the lack of easy access to the stern line chocks and cleats when mooring an unmooring.

Survey

We did survey on the boat yesterday and after talking to the surveyor, the boat is in really good condition considering the age.

Needs some service issues like A/C Repair, has bare bones electronics, some rusted A/C Clamps, swim platform needs a new board, wrong hoses on one engine and the propane tanks need to be relocated.

Looks like a go.

I think you are going to be very happy with that layout. I bet if you keep her light you can run around at 16 kts and only burn 1.5 gallons a mile.
