Few yachts are better designed for cruising than the Cheoylee 40 Long Range Cruiser.   From flybridge to keel, whe has many design features that provide practical cruising pleasure.  The flybridge offers the helmsman an unobstructive view.   Teak decks on the bridge and the wide side deck provide not only beauth but sure footing as well.  The Cheoylee40 LRC's displacement and fuel and water capacities show you get more real boat than others advertised to be close to the same size.  She carries 710 gallons of diesel and over 600 gallons of fresh water.  These capacities provide the boat with a range of 1,500 miles at 9 knots and over 2,500 miles at 7.5 knots.   The deep forefoot and fine bow entry together with its long deep keel and a displacement hull make her sea-keeping qualities unequalled in a boat this size.  An owner written article in 10/1978 issue of Motor Boating & Sailing described how a Cheoy Lee 40 LRC completed a 20,000 mile voyage from Hong Kong to Florida, crossing on its way the Sough China Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea, the Mediterranean, the Atlantic and the Caribbean.
