Powerboat Guide Report

Certainly one of the more popular Taiwan imports, the Kha Shing 40, better known as the Spindrift 40 Motor-yacht on the West coast and the Vista 40 or Southern Star 40 MY on the East coast. She's a competent semi-displacement sundeck trawler with a solid fiberglass hull, shallow keel and a modern profile. Over 120 of these have been sold into the US Market and most have been delivered with a 2 stateroom interior layout with galley and dinette down and a lower helm station in the salon. Hummingbird is the desirable 3 Cabin Layout. The interior is light teak and the cabinetry and joiner-work are impressive. With her wraparound cabin windows and excellent headroom, the salon of the 40 Ka Shing  is quite open in spite of all the teak wood. Notable features include deck access pocket door beside the lower helm station, secure side decks, varnished teak handrails and a roomy master stateroom whose dimensions are quite impressive for a 40'er. Outside , the covered aft deck is fairly spacious with plenty of room to furnish to one's taste for additional outdoor living space . Economical and capable of slightly greater than trawler speeds most of the 40 Kha Shing were powered with economical twin 165 HP Volvo diesels.
