Cheoy Lee 35 Review

Cheoy Lee 35 Lion Class

Nice used-boat review in Soundings:

Designer Arthur Robb, a native New Zealander, was well-known in the 1950s and ’60s for his offshore cruising sailboats. Cheoy Lee, the pioneering Hong Kong builder (though it was founded in Shanghai) began producing the 35 Lion Class in 1955, and more than 100 wooden hulls were built before the changeover to fiberglass in the 1960s.

These early glass hulls featured teak decks over plywood, which often led to delamination problems. Production of the popular cruisers continued into the 1980s. In 1965, a new Cheoy Lee 35 Lion cost $13,900. Used models today generally run from about $40,000 up to $85,000 for “showroom” boats, although there are bargains out there, too, especially if you’re looking for a fixer-upper.
