Yeah, she’s sold, but so handsome a vessel I thought I would activate her again just so people can see pictures of her. RARE.

47′ Cheoy Lee Seamaster full displacement vessel, with a dry stack exhaust, and no it’s not loud, nor is it dirty. 

 

This yacht is like a fine  weapon: Well designed FULL displacement, single engine, with dry stack exhaust-  well constructed  for a dedicated purpose -in a clean fully operational mode.  She has trans-Atlantic capability.  EXCELLENT bones AND cosmetics- NO metal tanks. Fiberglass from the factory for all. NO teak decks!

This vessel shows excellent. This is NOT a project boat. She’s turn-key ready to cruise. She’s been fully restored by her current German owner who’s the retired CFO of a major European Car Manufacturer, so he had the wherewithal to have undertaken the restoration. He has pride in the vessel and it shows.

She’s would really be worth $600k to the right buyer due to her uniqueness, comps, recent upgrades, condition and new equipment- but it likely would take too long to find ‘that guy’, so I’ve priced her at $159k for a quick sale to the knowledgeable buyer seeking a true full displacement cruising yacht that’s 100% turn-key, ready to go.  Owned by her current German owner since 2001. Her previous and 2nd owner was a pilot in the United States Air Force, stationed in Sanford Florida. The vessel was berthed on the St. Johns River for decades.

RARE (they only built seven) Bill Garden design. WHY seven you ask? Well, for those old enough to remember 1973 you will remember that this was the year the OIL CRISIS started, fuel became hard to find- and the US entered a major recession. The dollar was weak weak weak, and imports became expensive expensive expensive. Prices for anything built from oil sky rocketed!  Worse than 2008 for the power boat business. That’s your answer.

These were built in Hong Kong- not Taiwan.  I know of only two that remain in turn-key ocean cruising condition, and the other one is now in Mexico, after just cruising down from Vancouver BC- not for sale.  And then there’s this handsome yacht lying in a beautiful Ft. Pierce marina with a swimming pool that’s basically freshwater due to Taylor Creek outfall, at a dock within crawling distance of a very nice reasonably priced restaurant/bar. Monthly Dockage Rate you ask? $9.00 a ft.   Sit up north yet another year dreaming, or purchase this pedigreed yacht that you can follow the dotted line on her GPS to the Bahamas and back? SUMMER is when Floridians go to the Bahamas as the Gulf Stream can be like glass in the day time, yet over there it’s nice and breezy.

ALL FIBERGLASS CONSTRUCTION.    That includes ALL tankage. Fiberglass (from factory) Fuel, Water, and holding tanks.   No teak decks. All fiberglass.  Single 3208 Cat naturally 210hp aspirated diesel -that will last forever.   DRY Stack exhaust.

Bow Thruster. Cold air conditioning. Full electronics. Three (3) staterooms, two (2) large heads.   One visit in person- and you WILL buy this boat.  It’s not like there’s a big selection of full displacement single diesel fiberglass yachts that can cross oceans on their own bottoms is there?  Much less in this price range.

Nice huh? I would like to point out that despite all those large windows in this large space, the vessel was cool inside and it was a bright 89 degree high humidity day at 2pm when I took these. That's impressive on it's on. The air conditioners have new compressors, but the owner kept the tre cool original air blowers with the circular vent that can be turned to blow in different directions, something the new one's can't do. ALL new inside here. Galley, cooktop, Microwave convection oven, refrigerator, freezer, upholstery, wall paneling- all new. WHY? Because the old was old wasn't it?

This head is huge. Electric toilet. Holding tank has 140 gallon capacity, so if you find yourself cruising area's that have 100% NO discharge of anything overboard, you will last longer than most any other yacht, which usually have only 40-80 gallons of black water tankage. There's a area here totally plumbed and wired for a washer/dryer if you would like to add one.

Comments:  This is one rare beast that’s been fully refit by her 3rd and current owner, a German yachtsman (who also owned a Hatteras 62′ and has spent 30 years cruising Mexican waters in addition to the Virgin Islands on his Hatteras)  who purchased her in 2001. Her previous owner of decades was a pilot in the Air Force stationed in Sanford Florida where the vessel was berthed for decades..  She is cruise ready. Bottom is clean. No blisters. She shows beautifully, and any person who’s seeking a TRUE full displacement yacht will buy her upon first viewing. There are NO “issues”. Brand new to the market 11/05/15.  She shows great, smells good.  Non smokers.  EASY TO SEE in Ft. Pierce for the qualified buyer.  I know no other vessel in this price range that’s capable of long distance cruising right now.
