Description: Cheoy Lee Serenity 68
Cheoy Lee Serenity 68, from a company that knows a thing or two about long range cruising. From your earliest glimpse of the Cheoy Lee Serenty 68, it's going to be love at first sight. This is a yacht that is not only luxuriously appointed, but gloriously tempting. She is the sort of yacht that makes you want to get out the charts, plan a voyage, set a course. Head offshore for grand adventures. The graceful curve of the sheer line draws on her classic lineage, and ensures that she will retain her good looks for decades, when faddish yachts seem dated. But look closer: this is no marina queen destined to sit dockside. This is a yacht meant to venture far offshore, and she has a seamanlike heritage from the rugged anchor plates at the bow to the Portuguese bridge to the oversized rails surrounding the deck. She is, in fact, not really a yacht. The Serenity 68 is a little ship. But tough and seaworthy doesn't have to mean giving up creatures comforts, and the Serenity 68 is superbly finished to the highest yacht standards in the world. Each yacht draws on generations of Cheoy Lee craftsmen who create interiors that are truly works of art. Whether it is the inlaid teak panelling or the perfectly designed furniture, your simply can't find a better finish, and see if you can feel where a woodworker has created a joint. Bet you can't! Go aboard the Serenity 68, but don't hurry you visit. Take your time to discover how beautifully this yacht is equipped and finished, and don't forget to appreciate the iron fist in a velvet glove beneath the luxurious appointments.

Equipment
The United States is the largest market for Cheoy Lee yachts, and the Serenity 68 owner benefits from equipment and systems built for the North America market. In fact, for American clients, Cheoy Lee acquires everything from stabilizers to door knobs, galley appliances to electronics, in the U. S. And ships container loads to the shipyard on a monthly basis. For other markets too, Cheoy Lee pays specific attention to ensuring owners are fully supported when their yacht enters into service. Just as important, every piece of equipment on the Serenity 68 was chosen for reliability and suitability, and supported by our 24/7 service team.

And, because the Serenity 68 is a small ship, she is equipped to much higher standards than other yachts of her class, from the husky pantograph pilothouse doors to the oversized wipers that can clear the windshield in the worst conditions.

Redundancy is another word you'll use when you describe the Serenity 68; major systems are designed so that you'll have back-ups when the unexpected occurs. Dual generators plus an available inverter for stand-alone power, dual fuel filters so you can change one without shutting down an engine, and not just dual anchors, but two windlasses for full redundancy.
And no other builder offers the Cheoy Lee Yacht Management System (YMS), a comprehensive monitoring system that is standard on every Serenity 68. With YMS, the skipper is immediately alerted to the usual water and smoke alarms, but it also monitors such items as the navigation lights (is a bulb burned out?), bilge pump usage, and even provides alarms for the entry doors, information is clearly displayed on an easy to read LCD display. This is just one more way that a Cheoy Lee yacht provides peace of mind.
Remarks
Cheoy Lee Serenity 68, from a company that knows a thing or two about long range cruising.

From your earliest glimpse of the Cheoy Lee Serenty 68, it's going to be love at first sight. This is a yacht that is not only luxuriously appointed, but gloriously tempting. She is the sort of yacht that makes you want to get out the charts, plan a voyage, set a course. Head offshore for grand adventures.

The graceful curve of the sheer line draws on her classic lineage, and ensures that she will retain her good looks for decades, when faddish yachts seem dated. But look closer: this is no marina queen destined to sit dockside.

This is a yacht meant to venture far offshore, and she has a seamanlike heritage from the rugged anchor plates at the bow to the Portuguese bridge to the oversized rails surrounding the deck.

She is, in fact, not really a yacht. The Serenity 68 is a little ship. Unlike many builders who start with small boats and then move into larger ones, Cheoy Lee has vast experience in building large yachts to 172', so everything aboard the Serenity 68 is not "sized up" from smaller boats, but scaled down from large ones. You'll see this in the redundancy of systems, in the way that equipment is installed for ease of maintenance, and in strength of the hardware. Nothing aboard this yacht is for toy boats.

This is because Cheoy Lee is no nowcomer to boatbuilding. No other builder can match family-owned lineage that dates back 140 years... Fourteen decades!!... More than a century... And the Serenity 68 is the culmination of the experience and wisdom learned during that distinguished history.

But Cheoy Lee has never rested on its laurels, and continues at the forefront of modern technology. Cheoy Lee was one of the first builders to embrace fiberglass in the late 1950's, and the yard now practices the most sophisticated methods of resin infusion and cored construction. When it comes to computerized design by experienced naval architects combined with high-tech tank-testing, Cheoy Lee is second to none.

With experience comes wisdom. Modern technology has heralded great advances in the marine industry, but every decision on its application at Cheoy Lee is tempered by the realities of four generations of boatbuilding experience and good seamanship. Cheoy Lee Shipyards also has a shipbuilding division, building everything from ocean-going Supply Vessels, and high speed Patrol Craft to 7,000hp tugs for the Panama Canal. Professional mariners do not tolerate anything less than the very best. They expect rugged construction, simple-to-maintain systems, and design that can carry them through the worst weather in safety. The Serenity 68 is just such a small ship, conceived from the same basic ideals. Each Serenity 68 is designed to the stringent Germanischer Lloyd's standards.

But tough and seaworthy doesn't have to mean giving up creatures comforts, and the Serenity 68 is superbly finished to the highest yacht standards in the world. Each yacht draws on generations of Cheoy Lee craftsmen who create interiors that are truly works of art. Whether it is the inlaid teak panelling or the perfectly designed furniture, your simply can't find a better finish, and see if you can feel where a woodworker has created a joint. Bet you can't!

Go aboard the Serenity 68, but don't hurry you visit. Take your time to discover how beautifully this yacht is equipped and finished, and don't forget to appreciate the iron fist in a velvet glove beneath the luxurious appointments.

Construction
The Serenity 68 combines unequaled engineering and superior construction in a yacht fully capable of voyaging worldwide in all conditions.

The hull is solid fiberglass with no wood or coring, giving it unequaled strength and longevity. The deck and house use foam-cored and resin-infused laminates to create components that are both light and strong, enhancing stability and increasing fuel economy.

Unlike other builders, you will not find any wood in the structure of the Serenity 68, or indeed any modern Cheoy Lee yacht. This eliminates any problems associated with rot that would otherwise invariably lead to deterioration of the structure over time. No wood. At all.
The fuel water and waste tanks are molded into the hull as a double bottom, providing several benefits. The tank material will never corrode; the center of gravity is lowered; and they act as a second hull in case the outer hull is holed.

Each Serenity 68 design has been fully approved by Germanischer Lloyd and meets European CE standards. Owners may opt for full class certification, Hull Construction Certification (HCC) and CE marking. Cheoy Lee also holds the prestigious ISO 9001:2000 certification of manufacturing standards. The yacht also meets all the recommendations of the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC). Not sure what these certifications mean? Ask your
