Started by the Lo family as a boat repair yard in 1870, Cheoy Lee Shipyards has built over 5000 vessels since such humble beginnings. They began building luxury motor yachts soon after WWII, and have gained a reputation for excellence ever since.
The US is the largest market for the Cheoy Lee brand, which literally translates into a “profitable, smooth-running enterprise.” The yacht builder’s US headquarters is based right here in Ft. Lauderdale. According to the Miami Herald, some well-known owners of these yachts, known for their design and craftsmanship include, Key West icon Jimmy Buffett, Herb Dow of Dow Chemicals, Al Merck of Merck Pharmaceuticals and Don McGraw of McGraw-Hill.
One of the latest offerings from Cheoy Lee is the Global 104. The first Cheoy Lee Global 104, built for a previous customer, was launched in the early 2016.
The Cheoy Lee 104 – First of the Global Series
The New Global 104 represents the pinnacle of the Bravo and Global series from the design team of Jon Overing and interior designer Sylvia Bolton. According to the builder, “The Global 104′ offers tremendous 5-stateroom interior volume and is the only vessel in its size range where you can find a full beam master stateroom, with private his & her bath, and a large country kitchen, all on the main deck!
There are four luxurious guest suites below deck. For fun and al fresco dining there is a fully equipped Sky Lounge/TV room. Designed for breathtaking views, large glass doors and windows integrate the interior with the exterior throughout the Global 104.
Crew quarters are located aft and designed to accommodate up to five crew members.
Designed for a unique combination of speed, range and fuel efficiency, there is barely a destination the Global 104 cannot reach. She is equipped with twin Cat C32 ACERTS which provide impressive speeds, while still delivering surprisingly good fuel economy.
