We have a 1988 42' Present - built by CHB in Taiwan. Boats sold on the East Coast and Gulf Costs were mostly sold as Presents. On the West Coast and PNW they were sold as Ponderosa boats - same boats, just diff names.
"Chung Hwa Boat, CHB, was part of a three yard group owned by Y.F.Lee that was located in Kaohsiung, South Taiwan. They built mostly trawler style powerboats as well as a few sailboats for export to the US and Europe, for a number of different importers where they were sold under many different names.
It is thought that a yard of this same name still exists but located in mainland China."
