Engineroom access is excellent on this boat. Not only does it have hinged door from the galley area but the entire salon floor can open. ( See pictures. ) The owner re-carpeted the boat and has had each of 3 hatches fitted so they are easy to open for engine maintenance. No loose carpet.
There are sight tubes on each fuel tank and the Racor fuel filters are easy to get to.
A new Charles Isolation Transformer has been installed connecting the two power inlets, 50 and 30 Amp service. New AC power switches have also been added.

The hull on the Ponderosa is solid hand-laid fiberglass with plywood bulkheads. The superstructure is also hand laid and cored with fiberglass laminates. The hull is hard chine with moderate deadrise and a deep keel.
This is one of the many solid boats built in the Chuing Hwa yard in Taiwan. There are some minor underwater blisters. The last survey stated that the blisters should be monitored for any change. At that time they were a cosmetic situation only.
The bottom was cleaned and painted in May of last year and the boot top was also repainted.
The main head is electric and the forward head is manual. The owner kept one head as manual in case there was a loss of power.

This is the traditional tri-cabin sundeck model. The fully enclosed sun deck provides a large living area with table and deck chairs. It also has a great wet bar with storage.
The two side doors provide easy access to the wide catwalk and foredeck. A single starboard side door gets you into the main cabin. This is a great lounging area in cool weather but the sun deck is much larger and closer to the large flybridge seating area. When underway the bridge is the place to be. Back inside the main salon there is a complete lower station helm and lounge chairs.
Stepping down into the galley you find the dinette which also converts to a double bed. Being close to the galley this is the preferred dining area for two to four people. The galley is well set up with a large sink, 3 burner propane stove with oven and separate microwave. The refrigerator, which was replaced about 3 years ago, is a NovaKool with separate freezer. The NovaKool is a preferred unit due to the freezer being on the bottom and the compressor has a longer life than other brands.
Forward of the galley is the forward or guest stateroom. It has two bunks but the upper is almost queen size. It has it's own head and shower.
Moving back up the sundeck, it's three steps to the flybridge. This is a great living area. There is a bench seat on the port side and an L-shaped seat with a small table. The centerline helm seat has a companion seat as well. The centerline windshield is a special insert that is glass and has its own wiper. One of the problems of most enclosures is the bad visibility in rain. Problem solved.
The sundeck FRP cover provides a dinghy storage area with deck crane.
3 burner gas cooker
The Furuno FR803D Radar is an older unit but still in good working condition. A new Garmin 4008 GPS/Plotter has been added to the flybridge helm station. It also includes an aft facing video camera which is great for docking. The Datamarine depth sounder and wind speed are in working order.
Electric Simpson Lawrence windlass
60.96m (200'0") of chain
Avon 3.10 dinghy (1986)

The foredeck provides easy access to the anchor windlass and storage area for small boats or kayaks.
There is a combination freezer/refrigerator on the sundeck that is AC and DC powered.
Necky hard body kayak included.
2 bilge pumps (1 manual / 1 Electric)
