Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Josh of Boatshed. Register or log in to see 51 more photos of this boat. These boat details are subject to contract.

Cheoy Lee brings to mind the words quality, comfort and space. This particular example was built with the layout plans altered to accommodate a Grand Piano to Starboard. Prior warning before tacking a must for the musicians below, alas this is no longer needed as the current owner has removed the piano for the benefit of space and benefit she has with plenty of on board socialising room above and below decks. No need to be squeezing people on and crossing names off the list. Comfortable cruising and a lot of enjoyment are sure to follow with this yacht.
