New Model: Cheoy Lee 87 Alpha Express Sportbridge

Cheoy Lee launches the announced a year ago new flagship model of its sport yacht Alpha series, the awaited 87 Sportbridge. The Alpha sport yacht series by Cheoy Lee was presented in early 2012 and with this latest addition features three models, the other two being the 76, of which one is a Sportbridge version. The Alpha series of sport yachts has been an interesting novelty from Cheoy Lee, who for this new challenge employed one of the best designers in fast hulls, which combined with its fame of building strong and reliable vessels should prove to be a nice development in the years to come.  Designed as its smaller sister by the known hands of Micheal Peters; hull shape and exterior lines, with an interior plan by Luiz de Basto, the 87 Alpha Express Sportbridge is a very nice looking offer in this competitive market segment.  The standard interior layout on the 87 Alpha Express Sportbridge offers a four double cabins all with private bathroom plan. The owners stateroom is located amidships and features; a walk-in wardrobe, beauty desk, and relaxing sofa. A crew lobby with small lounge L-shaped dinette and a cabin with two bunks berths is located amidships.  Standard power is twin Cats 1900hp engines which give max speed around 30 knots.  More powerful 2600hp MTU optional engines are available.
