Motorsailers 1981 Cheoy Lee Pilothouse

Off Market since May 23rd 2019

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

With the pure cruising sailor as well as the power boater in mind, the Cheoy Lee 43 Pilothouse Motor Sailor addresses the comfort, safety and blue water aspirations of the serious yachtsman. For the sailor who values a warm and dry refuge while underway, the pilothouse provides a perfect environment in poor weather conditions. The extraordinary 600 galfuel capacity combined with the large diesel engine turns windless days into 200 mile/day passages. This Robert Perry designprovides excellent sailing performance, and offers the comfort of a huge live-aboard vessel that is ready to sail away in style. Her sail area to displacement ratio is in line with other performance cruisers. With a beam to waterline length ratio of 0.35 she is stiff, yet not so stiff that the concept of a sailboat is lost. Equally important is that the 43 is graceful under sail, easy to handle and quick to respond a characteristic not known in the vast majority of motor sailors. Come preview this world cruiser and see for yourself how you can cruise in comfort and style without compromise.

Tangaroa has extensivelycruised Alaska and Mexico ... and is equipped andready to cruiseagain!
