Magic Dragon



Edgewater, Maryland





For Sale


This unique and superb example of the iconic Krogen-designed 42’ trawler built by Chien Hwa Boats (CHB) comes to market as her sellers are pursuing new adventures. Over their ten years of ownership, “MAGIC DRAGON”, one of only 5 of 206 total 42s built with twin engines, has benefited from constant upgrades and loving care. She is striking in appearance with her rich custom topside paint and Oyster white topside Awlgrip.

Records found on board indicate that “MAGIC DRAGON” was commissioned at the Chien Hwa yard (the birthplace of all Krogen 42s) by a Hollywood special effects director, who’s movie credits include The Godfather III, The Curse of the Jade Scorpion, and The Wiz to name a few. His artistic eye for detail may be why he added some special touches to the build, including the hand carved teak dragon in the galley/salon, waves carved in the salon trim, carved doors, solid onyx stone galley counter, and granite head countertops, to name a few.

In the early 1990s the boat was berthed in the Norfolk, VA area and owned by a couple who renamed the boat “DASH” once they became empty nesters. Then in the early 2000s the boat was renamed “MAGIC DRAGON” by new owners in NC.

She was purchased by her current owners from the Krogen dealer in Stuart, FL in 2008. Since then she has been lived aboard full time and traveled the East Coast. She was berthed primarily in Philadelphia, PA, Delaware City, DE, St. Petersburg, FL and Palmetto, FL.

Over their ten years of ownership, “MAGIC DRAGON” has seen constant upgrades and care. This care has not been limited to superficial, cosmetic work. She has been enhanced mechanically, structurally, and cosmetically as described in detail in this listing. She is ready for new caretakers with a sense of adventure to embark on the next phase of this remarkable trawler’s life.
