The Cheoy Lee 53' Motor Sailor has been long known as a rugged bluewater motorsailer capable of taking you to the furthermost reaches of the world's oceans. The raised helm deck provides captain and crew with a 360-degree view of their voyage. The cozy spacious pilothouse protects all from the harshest elements. These attributes are just a taste of the many highlights that have given this passage maker a cult following. Only a hand full were ever built and even fewer have been maintained and updated to the caliber of this awesome cruiser.

Standing dockside it is evident the amount of love that this vessel has been treated to. The new exterior paint, new teak decks, and constantly maintained varnish trim stop all walkers by to gaze at this beauty.

The vessel is easily boarded from the midship safety gates. From the water, two large gleaming stainless davits allow tender passengers quick retrieval of their new dinghy. The all-new teak decks provide sure-footed traction from stem to stern. Sturdy stainless bow and stern rails with side safety cables provide crew with protection while transiting the exterior decks. The raised helm deck with a full aft seating enclosure encircles all passengers during the harshest conditions. Two ladder back helm seats give the captain a commanding location with arms reach to all mechanical, electronic, and sailing gear.

A beautiful teak cabin door on the port side of the helm provides access to the cozy pilothouse. The helm to port features all-new B&G electronics, Faria Engine Instrumentation, and Cobalt engine controls. A long bench seat/pilot birth behind gives passengers a great vantage point through the tempered new wrap-around windows. Numerous cabinets allow for storage of books, navigation, and safety equipment. Other pilothouse features include white and red overhead lights, new teak and holly sole, and new cruise air reverse cycle air conditioning.

From the pilothouse, three steps down brings you to the salon and galley area. Immediately to port is the U-shaped galley, features include beautiful teak cabinets, Corain countertops, large stainless refrigerator and freezer, Force 10 oven and stove, and abundant storage. The salon forward of the galley has port and starboard leather Settees with abundant storage behind and below. Other highlights include huge Bomar hatch, beautiful floral curtains, white vinyl overhead, new teak and holly sole, and a new 42' flat-screen TV with built-in picture display.

From the salon forward two steps down brings you to the forward companionway. Immediately to port is the enclosed head with separate shower stall. Head amenities include Vac-U-Flush head, porcelain sink, Bomar hatch, porthole, stall shower, and 4 cabinets. The forward cabin consists of two single over under births. Additional items include teak wall coverings, large hanging locker, Bowmar hatch, two portholes, chain locker access, AC Vent, and reading light. The second guest stateroom is to starboard. Features include air condition controls, hanging locker, 4 drawers, two portholes, and reading lights.
