UNWIND in the comfort of your own home on the water. Thoughtfully configured, carefully designed and magnificently executed, the sensation of space and comfort is inspiring. Choose your sanctuary from the many retreats this global 100 has to offer.
For 140 years, and five generations of family ownership, stands Cheoy Lee in a small but distinguished group of yacht builders whose dedication, experience and longevity is beyond doubt. Today Cheoy Lee’s annual output regularly exceeds 10,000 tonnes of vessels, destined for the world market.
All Cheoy Lee yachts are based on efficient and seaworthy hull forms. Naval architecture precedes and therefore dictates internal compartment volumes and available space, not vice versa. This uncompromising approach has earned Cheoy Lee a reputation among captains and owners alike for yachts that perform beyond expectations. At sea, comfort on board is a function of solid naval architectural principles, not excessive attention to interior volume that can lead quite to the contrary. Whether charging at 25 knots, or enjoying the yacht’s miserly consumption and two thousand mile range at a more sedate 10 knots, the Global 100 will deliver you in safety and comfort.
The Global 100 offers a relaxing and liveable accommodation plan. Four distinct internal living areas are offered by way of the welcoming salon, format dining area, panoramic upper sky lounge and the split level observation lounge. Outside there is the expanse of aft deck luxury, alfresco entertainment on the upper sun deck, wind in your hair at the fore deck seating area and water sports activities from the transom sport deck. The stateroom arrangement is equally versatile. Two master staterooms enable owners to choose between the on deck suites with panoramic views, or a luxurious full beam lower master, both with extravagant ensuite head facilities. Twin ensuite VIP staterooms are accessed via a grand central staircase and majestic 55 square foot lower foyer. Five crew are housed comfortably in three staterooms aft, with a dinette and galley for self sufficiency.
As one of the first shipyards to use fibreglass in the 1950’s, Cheoy Lee continues to be a leader in the field today, with constant advances in resin infused, vinylester foam sandwich composites. The Global 100 is resin infused throughout, right down to the internal soles, bulkheads, even as far as the furniture mouldings, that are later clad with sumptuous wood veneers. With structural engineering by High Modulus, in accordance with Det Norske Veritas classification requirements, stress and weight is maintained. As has always been the way, Cheoy Lee yachts built for both commercial and pleasure purposes are built to last.
PEACE OF MIND
Experience, design, engineering and technical ability are unquantifiable components of every builder, although a yardstick to gauge the success of a shipyard would be the level of repeat orders. In 2008, 60% of yachts under construction were for individuals, who had built one or more yachts with Cheoy Lee in the past. In the commercial division, the figure was close to 90%. Cheoy Lee is proud to have earned the trust of their many satisfied customers.
