Opinions on Chung Hwa Magellan 36

Hello all,

I am seriously looking at a well-maintained Chung Hwa Magellan ketch as my next boat.

As we go through the usual pre-purchase routine, I would appreciate any pointers on what to pay attention to with this particular model, other than the obvious items.

0Thank you in advance,

I have a Magellan 36, which I have been restoring for some years. This year I have actually got to the point where I have been out sailing. I find the boom is situated very low; as I plan to install a dodger, the boom will need to be raised. Has anyone else faced this problem? If so, I would be interested in how you dealt with the problem, and any advice you may have. Tx. Roger

The Chung Hwa Magellan 36 appears to have been based on the Island Trader.

Sister Boat


The boat in question was in Mazatlan. Its a good hull and it made it as far as Hawaii, so that is something.

I have one of the sister boats to it. As far as I kno there are only a hand full of true Megellan 36's left.

I kno this reply is late but I hope that if you purchased her she will last you many years to come.
