Cheoy Lee's new Explorer 150


Cheoy Lee Yachts Shipyard has recently announced the addition of a new model to their fleet, the Explorer 150. Created in conjunction with Overing Yacht Design, a model of the superyacht was exhibited at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last week.

The new yacht comes with increased living spaces, with piping and wiring all conveniently located beneath the sole in order to utilise the full capacity of the vessel’s depth. The increased volume allowed added luxury and comfort inside. Designer Overing comments, “To keep the high level of efficiency plus a roomy hull is a challenge, but we have achieved that with these boats.” He continues, “It is a traditional, conservative boat with great interior space for amenities.”

Powered by a single Caterpillar 3512B engine with a diesel propulsion engine forward as a backup, is combined with the large rudder and hydrodynamic bulbous hull to deliver an impressive 35% lower fuel consumption, adding a green factor to the shipyard’s Explorer series. With an increased fuel capacity, this Explorer will have a range between 7,000-9,000 nm.

Traditionally known for building long-range commercial ships, the shipyard state that, “The luxury amenities of the model are unsurpassed by other vessels in its class. The Explorer can travel self-sustained for long distances without sacrificing a single creature comfort.”
