New from Cheoy Lee

Jun 15, 2010

Designer Mike Burvenich and Marty Isenberg of Cheoy Lee North America worked closely to develop this new model. It stems in part from the observation that, while a few yacht owners seek to downsize. They don't want to give up desirable features such as spacious masters or galleys and privacy. The layout of the new Global 103 Pilothouse seeks to appeal to these owners. Mike Burvenich based the Global 103’s design on Cheoy Lee's 95/100 series. The yacht features a full-beam, on-deck master stateroom with his and hers bathroom. A walk-in storage compartment forward can be converted into an office. The large galley features a spacious sitting area and practical center island. And, of course, aft of the galley is a formal dining area and the main-deck salon. The lower deck, reserved for four staterooms, can be configured in a number of ways. All Iayouts make room for a large foyer area with natural light and a washer and dryer. A small refrigerator and icemaker are optional but a nice plus to consider for guest comfort.

Crew quarters, located aft of the engine room, have two separate accesses including a port side door that allows the crew to reach the galley without walking through the salon. Here too, various layouts are available to make room for a crew mess or additional cabins, according to owners' needs. The skylounge level contains the pilothouse, which offers access to the foredeck. The full-beam skylounge opens out to a spacious sitting area with room for a hot tub. With twin Caterpillar C32 ACERTs, the yacht has a comfortable cruising speed in the low to mid 20-knot range.
