Reason for Selling

After 55 years of sailing, with thousands of miles behind me, I've retired and my wife and I
are moving to property we own inland.  This magnificent, sturdy, well equipped and well
maintained vessel has served us faithfully for the last 16 years, and it is now time for
someone else to take the helm.  This ocean crossing boat will provide you with many future
ocean crossings...and/or day sails… in comfort and style.

Research what has been written about this classic, rare vessel…
When asked what owners like most about the Cheoy Lee 44, a variety of things come up
including the solid build, the camaraderie of the owner's association and the number of
complements they receive from others.  "Every time I look at her, she makes me happy".
