Moving up.

After 6 great years with our NT37, we are moving up. We are in contract for a well maintained Cheoy Lee 52 Motorsailer. I completed my own thorough survey this weekend and it passed. There are a few items that need attention of course, but no deal breakers. The professional surveys are scheduled a couple weeks out. After 7 years or so being a part of this forum and 6 years of boat ownership , I am infinitely better equipped for the second round.Click image for larger version

Love it - especially the boarding ladder and the foredeck toys (do they come with it?).

It's a beaut! Congrats.

I hope those big vertical sticks on the deck prove themselves worth the inconvenience.

Congrats, that is a very cool looking new boat!

I remember you and I both got similar vintage NT37s at about the same time, interesting that we both moved up about the same time as well!

That is a beautiful example of a well maintained boat, as far as motor sailors go the Cheoy Lees are great boats.

Congratulations

I noticed you moved up recently as well. Congratulations. I was in the nordhavn and KK market as well until this unexpectedly dropped in on the market. I couldnt resist, especially with the amount of maintenance it has had over its life.

Looks like a great boat! I hope the surveys go well.


FWIW, I think the NT37s are great boats. If I ever go down in size, that would be one I'd look at.

Sweet boat. Have always admired them. Had one come in a few years ago. Liveaboard family from California. They are quite roomy boats.

The world is your oyster...

Congratulations,

She is a beautiful boat!

Have not seen many boats (with sails) that have a crane davit on the bow and the room to store 2 boats!

Hope the survey goes well.

Agreed. The NT37 was a great boat for us until my 11 year old turned into a wookie on his 16th birthday. Now he takes up the whole main saloon seating on the NT37!

You are a better Dad than me.

I made one of my teens sleep on the pilothouse floor with a thermarest mattress when we cruised.
