1974 Cheoy Lee 47 Offshore Yawl Sailboat in Honolulu, Hawaii

Stock #242839

If you've ever dreamed of owning a beautiful Cheoy Lee, don't let this opportunity pass you by!

This vessel has been used as a liveaboard for several years now and she will continue to make a wonderful liveaboard. All original teak and characteristic features below deck are in very impressive condition.

Please Note ----- She is being sold as a turn-key liveaboard and not a turn-key ocean-going vessel. Please read the full "Information on Condition" section at the bottom of this listing. (Click on: SEE MORE)

BUC Value in "Fair Condition" for the Pacific Islands is $50,000-$55,000. She is priced to sell and the asking price takes into consideration what will need to be done to prepare her for regular ocean usage.


Access to the main living area from the deck is by way of a midship ladder through an overhead clear scuttle hatch.

The main cabin consists of a galley to port and moving forward a spacious dinette and settee.

In the galley, you'll find a working propane 3-burner gimballed stove with oven, double sink, and small counter area.

Opposite, two exceptionally large and deep insulated ice box-type refrigerators, and freezer compartments provide a nice, clean countertop/work area which can also double as a navigation station or home office. Neither is working and will need a new compressor but both are still functional for storage or short-voyage cooling with ice.

The large dinette can easily seat 6-7 guests and converts into a sleeper if desired. Above the settee, there is a special dish storage cupboard for use when underway.

Presently there is a portable AC air conditioning and heating unit in the corner with an exhaust neatly vented out of an air intake opening.

Forward is the private stateroom, which has a large queen-sized v-berth with ample storage both below and beneath. The chain locker is also housed well forward in the v-berth.

Aft of the stateroom is the head area which is set up for a marine head to port and a water closet with sink and mirror to starboard with a lot of storage. The marine head has been removed but all connections are in place to reinstall.

This cabin and lavatory are separated from the main cabin by a full-size teak door with a lock.

Aft of the galley and main cabin is the crew quarters or guest cabin. The private cabin is also separated by a full-sized teak door with a lock and can also be accessed directly from the cockpit through an additional companionway which is a very unique feature. Two spacious berths - port and starboard - are separated by ample built-in storage. The en-suite head has a marine head (connected but not in use,) shower, and sink.

This space is currently being used for storage and houses a 3/4 size working refrigerator/freezer. The bathroom is also home to a working, portable Haier washing machine. Both are included in the sale.



Hand-laid molded fiberglass reinforced plastic. West System applied 2010 during dry dock.


Sandwich constructed fiberglass reinforced plastic with a marine-grade plywood core. Teak plank overlay. Presently, the deck has an overcoat of rubber sealing that can be removed if one desires to refinish teak and seams. Rubber sealing lays on top of teak and is not absorbed by the wood.


Light, ventilation, and access are provided by the forward, amidships, and the main companionway hatches. A large cockpit is provided with ample seating. Coamings are provided. The cockpit is self-draining. An all-around 4-inch bulwark/toerail provides safety around the deck with double-tier lifelines. A stainless steel bow rail and a stern rail are provided aft.


Sandwich constructed fiberglass reinforced plastic with a marine-grade core.


The vessel's electrical system includes four heavy-duty batteries (4 x 12-volt batteries wired in series to create two 24 volt battery banks). All batteries replaced new on 12/06/2020.

There is a 12-volt subsidiary breaker panel and a 12 volt DC master switch that isolates the two battery systems. The main switch is located at the companionway adjacent to the galley. Battery replenishment is provided by an engine alternator and an automatic marine charger.

DC cabin lights are in place throughout.

Working DC automatic/manual bilge pump is in place in the bilge. Sensor controlled via float valve - currently set on automatic.

Working AC automatic bilge pump w/auto sensor-in place.

In addition, there is 110 AC shore power (connected and working). Over-current protection for the 110 volt AC system is provided through a master circuit breaker and a five ganged subsidiary breaker panel.


An LPG propane combination 3 burner stove and the oven is provided. Burner valves are of the captive type. The LPG storage cylinder is located in a deck-accessed storage locker. An overflow pressure regulator is provided and located at the tank as is a valve. The storage box is equipped with a vent line. The storage cylinder is maintained secure from movement and the storage box, lines, and line portals vapor tight to the interior of the vessel - Excessive LPG gas vents to the open atmosphere at least 24 inches away from any hull interior openings. An LPG electric solenoid shut-off is provided.

There is also a double basin sink along with two large, built-in ice boxes - one refrigerator and one freezer. These are currently not functioning -- a working 3/4 size AC refrigerator/freezer is being used.

Information On Condition

Per the owner:

-- The engine is not running and has not been run for several years. (Please see below for details.)

-- The last haul out was in 2010.

-- The standing rigging has not been replaced in over 20 years and will need to be inspected or possibly replaced for any serious sailing. This will be a recommendation in any survey. Originally a yawl, the owner has removed the original Sitka Spruce mizzen mast. The mast could easily be replaced and the mizzen sail and mizzen winch are currently in storage. The main mast is the original Sitka Spruce wood. The jib is a rolling furler.

-- The exact age and condition of sails are unknown.

-- Winches are all working well.

-- While the cockpit retains its original teak, the top deck teak has been covered in a rubber sealant, which can easily be removed by a new owner who wishes to refurbish it.

-- The propeller shaft has been secured with epoxy.

-- Both bilge pumps are working well and checked regularly.

-- Everything in the galley is working well with the exception of the fridge/freezer ice boxes which will need a new compressor. There is a working stand-alone 3/4 size fridge and freezer in the guest cabin.

-- The aft head is connected but not used.

-- The forward head has all connections in place but no marine toilet installed.

-- Water tanks are fine; an overflow valve might be beneficial to a new owner.

-- The hot water heater has not been used in several years - the condition is unknown.

-- All cabin lights and AC outlets are working properly.

Seller's Recommendations:

-- All engine connections need to be replaced.
-- All thru-hulls need to be checked at the next haul-out.
-- Install a dripless shaft at the next haul-out.
-- Replace transmission plate on an inboard diesel engine.
-- Replace overflow valves on both water tanks

ENGINE INFO: The original engine has not been started or used in several years. It was diagnosed as needing a new transmission plate, which is a small, cheap part to replace but difficult to access. The connections will most likely need to be replaced. It is unknown if the two starters are working. Yearly buoy runs are currently done using a 25HP outboard engine. The last buoy run was in August 2020. Any new buyer will most likely want to completely replace the engine, continue to use an outboard, or reconfigure with an electric setup.

She is being sold "as is, where is" with the possibility of an in-water survey and/or hull dive inspection but no water trial or haul-out survey is possible due to the engine not working.
