PANDIAN: Sailboat Cheoy Lee Empire Offschore 40, 12.30 meters long by 3.30 inwide and 2 draft, made ​​from No. 2374 in 1970.
Since then he has sailed through waters Greek, Turkish and now in Spain. Its current base is in the port of Palamos (Girona), in the heart of the Costa Brava (Catalonia). I'm still recovering the entire ship and being a pleasure for me to fix everything , from wood to mechanics. I'm still impressed by the quality of the materials of its construction. It is unique.
Sailing with him is a pleasure with any wind. It is a brave and fast boat. I applied some inventions like the mizzen fold and more are being done.
This boat was filmed in the movie "The Golden keel" with Alain Delon and Brigitte Bardot ( 1980), in the Mediterranean area.
