The sale did not go through, but she is now on the dreamboat list.
Basically these are boats 27' or less that have standing headroom and are generally considered worthy of ocean sailing.

I don't own one but know of the design. Fibreglass hull and traditional teak decks and cabin (not over glass). Good looking, probably not a bad sailer. A friend and neighbor has a 36 in all wood and except for the maintenance issues she's pretty fast and good looking.

Cheoy Lee Offshore 27'
Hi all, I am considering purchasing a Cheoy Lee Offshore 27. This is not my first boat. I first had a kayak. That evolved and then I had a Balboa 22, then I got a dinghy to match her, then the Balboa was sold and I bought an Islander Bahama 24. I built another dinghy. (Always in search of the perfect tender)....
The question is, what do you think of the Cheoy Lee? Is it blue-water capable? Does the engine take up too much space? Is she beautiful? Let's get some opinions, pics, websites!
