AREA OF SAILING - Milwaukee & the World
E-Mail Clarke  I own 2 Cheoy Lees. A Robb 35 and a Lion Class Sloop. Both 35
footers designed by Arthur Robb. 
The Lion I found in Santa Barbara, Ca. and trucked to Milwaukee. The Robb 35 was bought for a friend of mine in Rhode Island sailed back to Milwaukee by me 5 years ago and then this year I purchased it because he had lost interest.  I am doing minimal restoration on the Robb 35 so that I can go sailing this year. The Lion is where my heart is and she is going to get a complete going over. I am getting rid of all and any mild steel that is to be found and replacing it with silicon bronze. Specifically the floors, mast support and lodging knees etc. There are about 20 frames that need replacing and every piece of plywood that was installed will be replaced with LLoyds rated stuff. Including decks, bulkheads, sub-bulkheads etc. She will be better than new when I am done with her. Then I will be going globe trotting.

AREA OF SAILING - Coconut Grove, FL
E-Mail Denis  I have owned "China Doll" since 1979.  She is a Robb-35 sloop, all teak, built in 1964.   She is not a Lion, which has an 8 ft beam, but she has a 10 ft. beam and consequently much roomer below.  She was originally commissioned by two Army officers after their tour of duty in Viet Nam.  After watching the construction, they launched her in Hong Kong harbor and sailed her home.  Their is an article about me and some of my sailing experiences aboard "China Doll" in the August issue of Sailing magazine (page 57)

Just to let you know that my Robb 35 Kehhar has been completed and is now proudly in the water. I have been through a full refit, step by step and it was great. I manage a shipyard in Trinidad and I do more and more classics boats. This one was done outside of my yard , during my free time. My good friend Dennis Renuart , Owner of China Doll ( Robb 35 Cheoy Lee) in Miami has been a great help and we had a lot of fun rebuilding our boats. If anybody needs help to rebuild a Cheoy Lee please call me or send me an email. Last year I had the visit of M. Lo But Yang who is the Director and I believe the Owner of Cheoy Lee in my yard for some business and we spend quite a while talking about the Robb 35 Kehhar . he remembered very clearly his father working on this boat .

Bernard has submitted some great pictures of the completed Kehaar.  Thanks james...

Boat- "C Hunt"1964 Robb 35' Yawl
OWNER - Kenneth & Erika Klemmer

AREA OF SAILING -
Detriot Yacht Club-Detroit, Michigan
E-Mail Kenneth & Erika   Recently purchased the boat 2004 from George & Alyce Boulemenous after experiencing its stellar race performance and stately cruising abilities.  Renaming is imminent but is a long and arduou8s process with them!  Current projects include repair of cockpit bulkheads and varnish, varnish and more varnish.  Oh yes, and sailing her as much as possible!

Being amateur historians, we are interested in finding out as much of the history of this lovely vessel. Here's what we know so far in terms of names the boat has had, owners  and approximate dates: "Old Teak" was owned by George and Alyce Voulemenous from 2001 until  2004. "C Hunt" was owned and restored by John (Jack) Hunt from about 1995 or  1996 until 2001. "Halcyon" was left in covered storage for several years at an unknown  location. We have a Coast Guard Examination certificate stating the boat was  owned by a George Hostetter, who lived in Michigan, dated June of 1977.  We have not been able to contact George. The builder's plate lists her as being built for John B. Hopkins in  1963, yard #909. We suspect she came directly to Michigan since her  apparently original sail bags are from Boston Yacht Sails, a local  sailmaker. We would like to find out any information about her early history, name  and places she was berthed or visited.

our home port is :CARMICHAEL  CALIFORNIA
our sailing area is: PACIFIC COAST OF MEXICO AND SEA OF CORTEZ
Comments: We purchased the boat in the fall of 2012. She has been in Barra de Navidad Mexico for at least 6 years, maybe 10. We are the 4th owners, and have the documented trail of her from when she was ordered and shipped to California in 1981. We are continuing her updating, and plan on using her in Mexico for the foreseeable future.  She is a good boat and in pretty good condition.
When we bought her she had already had her teak decks removed and all glass decks installed. She also has an aluminum  mast with in-mast furling. We added a new GPS and 3G radar last year, and are continuing with cosmetic work and sunbrella dodger and bimini this year. Plans are that when the fog moves into the Sacramento CA area in late December we will head to Barra and the Puerto Vallarta areas of Mexico for a few months. We post information of our wanderings at the address below.  Dec 2013

OWNER -
Brian Milgate
AREA OF SAILING - Shute Harbour, The Whitsundays, Australia
E-Mail Brian I purchased a lion class named "moondance" from Harry in New Zealand around 3 years ago. It had been out of the water for 8 years or more and although some restoration had been done, it wasn't completed. It had been for sale for more than a year and nobody was interested.
I spent some time making visits to New Zealand getting the yacht in seaworthy condition, and then sailed it to Australia where I am doing a full restoration. I changed to Australian Ship's Registry and was able to have the name Moondance.
The yacht is close to original condition, but an aluminium mast and a new diesel have been added.
It was built by Cheoy Lee and delivered to the USA. It was then sailed across the Pacific to New Zealand and then by me to Australia. I intend to sail the yacht to China as I have a Chinese partner who sails with me.

E-Mail Greg  I believe I'm the fourth owner of the boat.  She was raced in the San Francisco area in the mid 1960's under the sail numbers of J-377, which are on even the new sails.  I have been told by the owner that I bought her from that she has sailed in two Trans Pac Races (21 days and 19 days).  I have owned her since the mid 1970's.  My kids have grown up on that boat.  My daughter (33 years old) and my son (29 years old) still remember their younger years, growing up on the boat. 
The adventures (my God, the stories) in fair and stormy weather.  The "Sanding and Varnishing" parties.......  For, even her hull is Bright.  She sails with Tan Bark sails on a masthead rig.  She is listed with "The Register of Wooden Yachts".

AREA OF SAILING -
World Cruise -

Hi guys, your website is excellent, but for the sake of accuracy  I thought I should  let you know that Siandra is NOT a Cheoy Lee. She is a Lion, built in  Sydney Australia to Robb's original Lion drawings. We're happy to be  included on your website, but perhaps you could clarify that the boat was not actually a Cheoy Lee. thanks, and keep up the good work Niki Perryman & Jamie Morrison

Siandra was built by Ron Swanson in Sydney in 1956, and won both the 1958 and 1960 Sydney-Hobart Races. She is one of 5 Lion Class yachts built in Australia in the '50s and '60s. The others are: Kaiyu, Malohi, Simba, and Marguerite II.
 
Siandra's current owners (Jamie Morrison & Niki Perryman) have been living aboard and cruising the world since 1992.

OWNER - Unknown

AREA OF SAILING - Rye, New York

I've attached a photo of my fathers 1961 Cheoy Lee Lion that our family owned from 1961 through 1981.  She was the most beautiful black hull ever to grace the waters of Long Island Sound with the lovely name Coeur de Lion (French for Lionheart).  Since 1981 she has been painted white and currently resides in Rye, NY keeping the same name.  I have other information such as the original bill of sale from Lion Yachts, original blueprints, and photos from Hong Hong of her being built that I will share with your website.  I also own a half-hull model of the boat in exquisite detail that every Lion owner will drool over-photos to come. 
I was 6 when our family purchased the Coeur de Lion and she remained a member of our family for the next 20 years.  When Dad looked at the first prototype at the New York boat show it was love at first site but there were concerns,  my Mom didn't like the galley being forward near the hanging locker, the bunks were short, and the interior space was narrow.  We were informed that each one was custom built and that changes were no problem.  The galley was moved aft, bunks narrowed, Formica added to counters, and a number of other modifications-all at no additional cost.  We were pleased to notice that our changes were kept in all subsequent models. 
Coeur de Lion has had three subsequent owners and is currently owned by Paul Hilliard of Rye NY.  Although its been 20 years since she left our family, her memory remains and is constantly in our thoughts.

I have just finished a substantial renovation on Shearwater III. It included a complete interior rehauling and refastening of the hull planking. When stripping the transom for a new varnish finish, I discovered that the boat was originally named Liane _____ ( illegible) and was registered in Hong Kong. The previous owner had paperwork records of races that Liane ___ had entered and she had also won a few firsts while participating.
 
I also have an original plan of the boat hull that was used for her construction. It is very old and tattered but still fully legible. I would like to get a copy to the association for your records, if you wish.
