This Cheoy Lee 47 designed by Dave Pedrick is in simply AMAZING condition. Her hull and deck house have been re-gel-coated, she has new teak decks, her interior was recently given 2 or more coats of varnish, recent sails & electronics, recent running and standing rigging and much more. The current owner lives out of the country and every year or two commissions her and comes to New England and cruises for about 1 month and then she goes back inside; consequently she looks like a 2004 (or newer) vs. a 1984.
There are accommodations for up to 8 in a full varnished teak 2 stateroom, 2 head interior with a varnished teak and holly sole. The entire interior has been re-varnished with multiple coats with complete stripping and re-finishing where ever necessary to give the interior an "as new" appearance, all soft goods replaced new cushions etc. Headroom is 6'-5" plus throughout. There is an abundance of natural light and ventilation with 6 opening ports, 4 fixed ports and 6 hatches, (all opening ports & hatches are fitted with screens) and 4 polished stainless steel Dorades.
Starting forward is the private Forward Cabin with 6'-6" V-berth with filler. Below the berth there is storage in bin type storage and there is a "dressing seat" below the port vee over which the filler is fitted as desired. Above the berth the hull is lined with varnished teak "ceilings" and then under deck lockers. Aft and to starboard is a hanging locker while opposite to port is a bureau with drawers and a locker outboard.
Aft and to starboard is the Forward Head featuring a separate stall shower compartment with seat, outboard vanity with laminate surface, porcelain sink with H&C water, storage in two lockers with shelves and a manual W.C., plumbed via a Y valve to the holding tank.
Opposite the forward head is large hanging locker aft of which is a bureau with 4 drawers and locker outboard.
Next aft is the Main Salon with straight settee to port and U-settee to starboard. The port settee seat back fold up to make upper and lower single berths while the starboard settee will pull out to make a double berth. Above both settee there are shelves and book cases. On the port side these house, among other items a TV and DVD player which may be pulled out when desired. Additional top access storage may be found below the settees. Dining is off of a pedestal mounted teak table with storage cubbies.
The U-shaped Galley and aft and to port with laminate counter tops, large deep double basin stainless steel sink with H&C pressure water manual fresh and manual raw water faucets, extensive storage in several lockers and drawers. There is a large double top loading refrigeration box fitted with Seafrost holding plate refrigeration while cooking is handled on the Force 10 gimbaled propane 3 burner stove with oven. Both the Refrigeration and stove were new in 2003.
The centerline companionway ladder and full height engine compartment divides the Galley from the forward facing Nav. Station which is to starboard. There is a bench seat with storage under, flip top style teak chart table with lockers under and shelves cabinets outboard for Nav. pubs and electronics. Aft of the bench seat is a hanging locker.
Continuing aft is the private Aft Cabin with its own companionway to the cockpit and private head. To port is a double quarter berth forward of which is a hanging locker and bureau with drawers. Below the berth there is some top access storage space and above the hull is sheathed with varnished teak paneling and a storage shelf. Opposite to starboard of the centerline companionway is the private Aft Head with ensuite shower, manual W.C. plumbed via a Y-valve to a holding tank and vanity with storage and porcelain sink with H&C pressure water and manual fresh water.
Throughout, this Cheoy Lee 47 is in excellent condition with recent interior varnish and upholstery as well as lighting and many other upgrades.

Perkins fresh water cooled 4 cylinder 62 hp diesel showing 655 hours since major overhaul as of date of listing, reported to be 1989 by date turns a 3 blade Max Prop feathering propellor on a 1 1/4" stainless shaft through a Brog Warner 2.5:1 reduction gear. The engine & gear were removed in 2011 and given a complete overhaul.
Fiberglass hull with some closed cell foam in the forward quarters of the boat for panel stiffness and weight reduction. The hull is built in a single unit with encapsulated lead ballast and full skeg mounted rudder. In 2003 the entire hull was stripped and re-gel coated. This is a more expensive and superior finish and process as compared to Awlgrip or other multi part linear polyurethane finishes. The bottom was barrier coated at that time, the teak deck removed and the house and water ways etc. re-gel coated and all deck hardware removed and re-bedded. New teak decks were laid and the house tops when refinished were done with Awlgrip with grip-tex in appropriate non-skid areas.
Custom Cheoy Lee off white/cream gel coat topsides with custom red/cream/red/gold boot top and gold cove stripe. The bottom is finished in a hard red epoxy anti fouling and has been kept well sanded and fair. bottom paint is done and ready for the 2015 season!
Fiberglass cored decks with a 7/16" teak overlay on the side decks, all exposed fiberglass was re-finished as noted above in 2003 and decks were new at that time as well. Teak trim with Cetol clear finish.
It is important to note that the owner lives out of country and the typical year was to have her launched in late June whereupon they would come to the US and cruise for 2 weeks to a month and then have the boat hauled and laid back up in inside storage since 2003 her lay-ups have been in inside heated storage! And on some years they have not launched her. She was last fully commissioned for the 2012 season.
Large cockpit with Edson pedestal steering, large sail locker to starboard and lazarettes aft. Wide side decks with double stainless steel stanchions and lifelines with gates P&S and double stainless steel bow and stern rails.
This Pedrick designed Cheoy Lee 47 is like few other yachts her age. She has been given an exceptionally thorough refit since 2003 including entire exterior and interior refinishing, new teak decks, all new running and standing rigging, electronics and much more. She is quite literally a better looking and better condition boat than she would have been as delivered from the builders yard. We cannot encourage you more strongly to come and see her for yourself if you are looking for a capable cruising vessel in this size range!
She is currently in inside heated storage until sold and is easy to show in Eliot, Maine just app. 1 hour driving time north of Boston.
