Yacht of the Week: The Equinox II a 78 Foot Cheoy Lee Yacht

The Winter Solstice may be right around the corner, but this week we decided to take a another look at a luxury yacht named for different celestial event – Equinox II, a 78 foot sport motor yacht built by Cheoy Lee Yachts.

Cheoy Lee Yachts has been a “shipbuilder to the world,” having built over 5000 vessels in its nearly 150 year history. Currently, their main yard is on the Pearl River at Doumen, China, where they are now specializing in customized, private, luxury motor yachts and commercial vessels.  As a yacht maker they have built a reputation for creating yachts that are nimble, stylish and sport an impressive array of technologies designed to appeal to the most discriminating of European or American yacht buyers.

Equinox II, originally built in 1999, is a prime example of the sport yacht line. The current owner has spent over 150k in upgrades in the last year, highlighted by new interior soft goods and granite counter tops that give her a more modern and contemporary feel. The interior woodwork throughout is maple and anigre complimented by the large salon window allowing for a light and airy room. The main deck features a day head, full size galley, formal and informal dining areas, and lower helm station.

Equinox II offers a spacious five stateroom layout, that includes three staterooms amidships plus two forward. The vessel was designed to operate with minimal crew, however, she does have a fifth stateroom which can be used as captain’s cabin or for an additional guest.

The interior woodwork throughout is maple and anigre complimented by the large salon window allowing for a light and airy room. The current owner says he particularly loves the spacious aft deck, and enjoys spending most of his time there entertaining guests and friends and dining al fresco.

There is also an all new integrated entertainment package throughout the boat.
