General Details

The Cheoy Lee Clipper 42, when built in 1970, was promoted as a cruising yacht of high quality and construction, combining the best features of the huskiest fiberglass hull with the craftsmanship evident in the exquisite Burma teak trim and joiner work. 

This classic  head turner had a major refit in 2004-05 that included a new engine, rigging, sails, thru-hullls and an extensive  interior makeover. Her good turn of speed is evidenced in her  third place finish  in the Carriacou Yacht Regatta two-handed round-the-island race in 2006.

In 2009, she won second prize in the Antigua Classics Yacht Regatta Concourse d'Elegance for best privately maintained yacht built after 1950.  She is fast and beautiful too!

Brokers comments
Here are excerpts from a recent review Of The Cheoy Lee Clippers by a well respected, independent Sailing publication: "There’s no denying that the “classic” look of the Cheoy Lee Clipper series is enough to make your heart flutter: “That’s what a boat is suppose to look like!”  Indeed, some well-known personalities such as singer Jimmy Buffet have succumbed to the Clipper’s Siren song.  Construction certainly was above average, with heavily laid hulls and  sound joinerwork......Regarding performance, the boat is deceptively quick on a reach, but due to its full keel and heavy displacement hull shape, does not excel  upwind..... but you don't buy a Cheoy Lee Clipper for performance or ease of maintenance. The 36 and 42 appeal to certain types of sailors, and you know who you are. Go in with your eyes open.... and you’ll have a boat to be proud of for many years to come."
