Designed by Ray Richards and built by one of the pre-eminent Taiwanese yards, the Cheoy Lee Offshore 41 has stood the test of time and continues to grace the waters of the world with her sleek lines and elegant performance under sail.
'Legacy' was purchased in 2017 by her current and third owners and appraised at $65,000 as-is with the surveyor concluding the vessel condition as "good". Since that time she has been only lightly sailed on local waters before a career move has forced the current owner to reluctantly offer her for sale at a substantial discount.
Like many fiberglass boats of this vintage, "Legacy" is a stoutly constructed classic, and represents tremendous value for a blue-water capable, offshore ketch.
Her standing rigging was replaced in 2004 and her Sitka spruce spars refinished in 2015. With only 1,841 hours on her 40 HP Westerbeke inboard, a three blade Max Prop and beautifully maintained interior, 'Legacy' offers her next owner a tremendous opportunity to step in to a well-found vessel at a very economical price point.
The Cheoy Lee Offshore offers comfortable living and sleeping quarters for up to 6 crew.
Descending the companionway, a pilot berth to port comprising a single bunk with storage above, provides the watch crew with convenient access to the cockpit and forward facing navigation station. While to starboard a large private stateroom provides a double berth for the off watch crew with ensuite access to the head. Forward of this stateroom to starboard, the generous head comprises a sink and a manual toilet, as well as a hand-held shower.
Forward of the navigation station to port, is the u-shaped galley with a top and front loading Norcold refrigerator, a recently replaced three burner Force 10 propane stove with oven, and double stainless steel sinks with pressure hot and cold water.
Moving forward from the galley is the main salon with its center piece circular dinette for which the Cheoy Lee Offshore is known and loved - providing comfortable dining and seating capacity for up to 8 individuals with a central, folding leaf, dining table. This dinette can convert to a large double berth. The main salon is enhanced by generous storage and shelving outboard of the dinette, as well as the proximity of the large Dickinson Arctic diesel fired stove.
Forward of the dinette, through a folding seat section of the dinette and a private door lies the v-berth, comprising a single berth to port, a custom shelf/storage area to starboard, and an overhead deck hatch. Forward of the v-berth is the chain locker.
The generous headroom, abundance of natural light, bright head liner, warm teak accents and glowing varnish cabin sole combine to create a cozy nautical ambience in keeping with the heritage and tradition of these classic vessels.
