Golden Star 1985


Sorry it took me awhile to respond. I have been a bit under the weather these days.
Yes, I am a 1985 Golden Star owner as well. My Documents call her a Fu Hwa Golden Star; model is a Sedan.

I was also in touch with another Sedan owner from Sweden (I think) last year who had just bought a GS in Florida last year. I lost email records on him in a disk crash, but I believe he was on TF briefly at one time. There was another fine looking Fu Hwa for sale last Fall up in the northwest that really caught my eye. There do not appear to be very many of these Golden Stars around or for sale I guess. Other than that one in FL, which was not that similar, I have looked for years and have not turned up a sister of this trawler. I think many of these were very customized. This one came with Bow and Stern Thrusters, Autopilot, and a "secondary" Propane gas water heater.

I have left from the PO a well copied sales brochure of the line; it pretty clearly shows your Sundeck as both a 35' or 38'.

Although they may come from the same pedigree, there are some glaring differences in our Gold Stars. You have dual Perkins' and I run a single Volvo TAMD40B. I note that yours appears to use cable steering vs hydraulic. The Pilot wheels are strikingly different, and I have the electrical power panel behind the lower helm wheel.

One of the deciding factors in acquiring Satori was our dog, Cassie, whom we wanted to have easy access through the Transom while being more contained with the high sides.
Please feel free to contact me privately if you would like to discuss further or exchange more info or Pics.
