Project: Cheoy Lee 83 Serenity

Cheoy Lee presents the project for a full displacement super yacht set to launch in about a years time, the 83 Serenity. This new member of the Cheoy Lee Serenity range is a seaworthy and economical yacht which takes some roots from trawler explorer style small ships. Designed by Michael Burvenich, the 83 Serenity is available in two different forms, a more traditional canoe stern design, or a European model, this last including a Euro-transom with twin stairs from the aft deck to the swim platform. The Euro transom can also be configured with an optional passarelle. The hull is designed with flatter sections aft that enables the hull to run faster than a traditional displacement shape of the same water line length, yet still calculated to be approximately 30% more efficient at cruising speed than a similar sized semi-displacements at equivalent speeds. The interior layout will be a split level saloon offering a relaxing lounge upon entrance with a C-shaped sofa to starboard, a bar with three stools, and dining table. Further forward and up a step is the working area of the main deck where will be a separate galley, day head, and the helm station room which also features an L-shaped settee to starboard. Below accommodation is a three double stateroom in the forward section, with the owners room to mid ship. Aft are two double crew cabins both with en-suite head. Power for the Cheoy Lee 83 Serenity will be from twin 660hp Cats with an optional of an independent hybrid system by Siemens which is powered by the generators. www.cheoylee.com
