This unique Cheoy Lee Custom Offshore 41 sloop was built in the Hong Kong shipyards by special order for official entertaining and was sailed in Hong Kong and Macao for representational purposes. She has special finishing. The interior is finished with teak veneer throughout. She was built to Lloyds standard. The hull number is CHL037000480, and she is U.S. Coast Guard documented. The vessel is 
available for inspection in Cyprus. All Cyprus and EU taxes are paid, and the boat is entitled to be registered under the Cyprus flag, if desired. She has been insured with Lloyds of London for the past 10 years.

The original owner kept the boat in Hong Kong until 1982 when he shipped the boat to Annapolis, MD, U.S.A. The current owner purchased the vessel in May, 1982 and used it for summer cruising in Chesapeake Bay until 1993. During this time, numerous custom features were added, including an aluminum mast, ceiling insulation, and 1-inch foam insulation on the bulkheads. Teak planks in the master cabin, navigation area and forecastle finished the bulkheads to the highest standards.

The present owner sailed the boat from Norfolk, VA to Israel, a voyage which the boat handled very well and the passage was made without incident. In preparation for the voyage, many new equipment 
systems were installed and existing ones upgraded. An inner forestay and running backstays were added to allow the vessel to be sailed as a cutter for added versatility. Since that time the owners have sailed the boat in the waters of Turkey, Greece, the Adriatic and Cyprus.

To give an indication of the condition of the vessel 
Excerpt from the most recent survey done prior to an Atlantic passage: 

Findings and Conclusion:

“The 1980 Cheoy Lee Offshore 41’ grp cutter/sloop was found to be in extremely good condition. An enormous amount of time and money have been invested in this vessel to insure safe and capable offshore performance. No findings were made and therefore no recommendations. This is extremely rare, in my experience. This vessel should be considered a good insurance risk for any voyage or use.

Michael L. Previti
Previti Marine Surveyor & Consultant, Inc.”

Since that survey the yacht has continued to be upgraded, including painting of the hull with Veneziani two-part polyurethane paint. She is a unique vessel, one of its kind in both construction and mainanance, over the years there has been much equipment added and you can see the meticulous care which has been lavished upon her by her current owners. She is a proven blue-water cruiser.
