The Trader 42 holds onto the values of the popular Trader 41+2, of which it replaced. Solid build, offshore capability and fantastic living spaces, with the storage capacity to spend long periods on-board. Built by Kha Shing Enterprise Co Ltd in Taiwan, who build to ISO-certified standard and have themselves built well over 1000 semi–custom yachts ranging from 40’ up to 130’ in a variety of models. 5-year hull warranty from delivery is given as standard and every yacht is inspected and checked consistently throughout construction, before undergoing rigorous sea trials.
Trader 42 BIASHARA was launched in May 2008 and was shipped to the Guernsey to the original owner, before the current and second owner (who is now looking to go larger) paid VAT. She has the preferred two-cabin layout that both feature en-suites and have vast hanging spaces and lockers fitted beautifully. BIASHARA is powered by the twin Cummins QSB 5.9 380hp engines on shafts that offer 380hp with a top speed of 18 knots and better efficiency at slower cruising speeds then the larger 425hp option at the time.
Moving around on the teak decks it is apparent why the Trader 42 has gained an RCD category A “OCEAN,” with high bulwarks and over specified stainless work everywhere you look! Helming the Trader 42 has some great benefits. The helm is positioned to starboard, above the aft cabin, gaining fantastic all round visibility. Your crew have the luxury of full walk around wide side decks. Access from the accommodation can be quickly made from a side door to starboard. Boarding can take place from the bulwark cleverly folding down midships or steps aft lead to the bathing platofrm. All of this combined and the fact BIASHARA has a deep keel will mean docking is a stress free exercise, with a bow thruster on hand to assist you if required.
BIASHARA is a well-specified example with heating, demisters, generator, Smeg appliances, Raymarine navigation, autopilot, radar, holding tank, inverter and dinghy! She is presenting extremely well for her year and with only 500 hours reading on the engine displays, she will not doubt be a popular choice for many.
