Cheoy Lee delivers Global 103-foot motoryacht
On June 7th, the Global 103 cockpit motoryacht, yard number 4915, was loaded onto the multi-purpose heavy lift ship "BBC Carolina". The 130m long carrier will steam at 14 knots across the Pacific to the port of discharge, Port Everglades in Florida.
Yard number 4915 is powered by a pair of Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesels that drive the yacht to a top speed of 27-knots. The hull designed by Mike Burvenich is light yet exceptionally strong thanks to structural engineering by SP High Modulus and resin infusion molding of the hull, superstructure, internal and external decks, right down to more minor molded components as well. With a fuel capacity in excess of 5000 gallons, the yacht can be throttled back to offer range figures to equal those of a long range cruiser; around 3000 nautical miles at 10 knots. The yacht provides exceptional all round performance.
The configuration of the arrangement with two master staterooms suits the joint owners well. Both master staterooms are forward, one on main deck level with large hull side windows, the other on the lower deck, full beam, with oversized hull side ports. Both feature exceptionally large heads, clad in marble to the owners’ individual selection.
At 6’-7” tall, is has ample headroom, full sized appliances, beds, passage ways and doors that are a standout feature on all Cheoy Lee yachts. Further aft are the two VIP staterooms, which in the standard configuration each feature a queen sized berth, dresser and ensuite head. On 4915, the owners opted to convert one of the two queen berths into twin, providing more flexibility for their guests. The crew quarters aft include two staterooms, two fully appointed heads, and a lounge for up to four crew.
The 150 square foot cockpit is equipped to match any serious sport fisherman, with tackle center, live bait well and ice machines supplying the two large cockpit fish boxes. A custom fighting chair will be installed after the yacht arrives in the USA. Cockpit bollards were strengthened to tow a 32’ tender, although a more modestly sized 17’ RIB is comfortably housed on the flybridge, lifted by a 2200-lb Nautical Structures davit.
