I am selling a 1975 Cheoy Lee
34’6” trawler – 36’ in overall length if you count the teak swim platform. I purchased this boat last November as a
project boat with the intent of doing a complete restoration and turning the
trawler into a little yacht. Unfortunately,
the previous owner had purchased this boat through an estate sale and did not
know anything about the boat… therefore,
could not educate me on anything. I
bought it “as is where is” That said, it has all the character and equipment to
be a great boat when done. The boat was
winterized professionally in November and re-commissioned this spring.
I had posted this boat on Ebay
once before, due to my hectic travel schedule, and although I had a buyer, the
buyer did not pay. Please only bid if you are ready to take on a
project. I am posting it again as I
simply don’t have the time to work on it.
This trawler was built by one
of the leading yacht builders in the world today. Cheoy Lee builds high end multi-million dollar
custom yachts so is worthy of restoration. It has a fiberglass hull which with some
cleaning and buffing, would come back.
That said, I was planning to spray it a nautical blue. It has twin Lehman diesel 120HP engines,
Northern Lights generator, Cruisair air conditioning, Lewmar windlass, GPS, JRC
Radar, etc…. There are $100’s, if not more, worth in spare parts on the boat along
with some tools.
Before I bought the boat, I
started both engines which started up right away and ran. The boat has velvet drive transmissions,
however, the starboard transmission would not engage in reverse but does in
forward. The port transmission works. I
had a mechanic go through the boat to determine some of the issues (at a cost
of $700) and learned that the port engine had an overheating issue. I just spent $2,100 in April and believe the
issue has been resolved. We have run the engines at high RPM (at the dock) for
45 minutes and they both stayed at appropriate temperatures. The mechanic checked the wiring and all
seemed good, however, had to replace the starboard engine starter wires. The panel, while original, seems to be in
good working order.
The transmission can be fixed
at the yard where the boat currently sits.
Twin Lehman 120 hp diesel
Velvet drive transmissions
(Starboard transmission does not engage in reverse… does engage in forward)
Port transmissions seems to be working fine.
Lewmar Windlass – Tested and
was working at time of purchase.
Northern Lights generator –
Runs but may need some attention
Garmin GPS –chartplotter /
VHF / JRC Radar - All working
Cruisair aircondtioning – Not
tested but was told it was in good shape
2 x Electric heads
Inventory alone adds up to
V-birth forward with head / shower
and vanity.. lots of draw space for storage.
Teak and holly floor that will need sanding but could come back. It was
covered with carpet.
Bridge – two pilot births
- I believe the flooring can be sanded
and brought back.. currently covered by carpet.
Galley – two burner electric
stove – not tested. Two fridges – not
tested – twin stainless sinks – Head / shower
Salon – pullout love seat and
foldout double bed.
Twin Lehman diesel engines
GPS – Chart Plotter / VHR /

New Mahogany flooring in

Two heads - Automatic flush heads…
I believe both working
Pullout love seat in salon
3 bilge pumps – all working
battery’s both house and
starting – all seem to be in good order.. Will need a charge.
· Transmission will need attention
· Decks will need attention
· Boat deck does not appear to be leaking but flexes
· Boat deck hoist / crane will need some attention. The boom is soft but can be replaced easily.
· Flybridge will need attention under the captains chair
- new plywood and fiberglass.. Not a
large job for handy man. Headliner below
shows some staining from leaks.
· Forward deck shows possible signs of leaking and is
soft under foot.
· The side decks feel solid but will need
· Hydraulic steering on the flybridge is leaking.. If
filled the steering does work.. Need to identify the leak.. simple fix.
Due to deck leaks there are
some soft areas in the teak bulk heads where the flybridge meets the salon and
in the pilot house. I do believe this can be
salvaged without replacement.The previous owner painted over much of the exterior teak which could be brought back or sanded and repainted.
My work schedule has kept
me from really starting the project. Therefore, I am reluctantly putting this
boat up for sale due to my lack of time. This boat is being sold “as is
where is” The fuel tanks are full of diesel.
I will try to answer any
questions that I can. Thank you
