Yacht Walkthrough: 76′ Cheoy Lee Motoryacht [PAESANA]

December 12, 2018 10:57 am

Alex Clarke from Denison Yachting and today I’m going to take you onboard the 2012 76′ Cheoy Lee Alpha Express Cruiser, named PAESANA. Tied to the dock, or hitting her top speed of 37 knots, which is over 40 miles an hour, the first thing that you’re going to notice about PAESANA is her aggressive profile lines that has performance to match.

We’re going to start today’s walkthrough here on the full-beam transom. The teak decks that we see here underfoot carry all the way to the bow. Here on the transom, you have direct access to your tender garage, which houses a Williams 285 jet tender.

Moving forward you have extra wide steps both the port and starboard that carry you up onto the aft deck. So the centerpiece of this top deck is the dinette where at the push of a button, these tables lower, great for cocktail hour. Directly aft of the seating area, you’re going to have a large pad great for enjoying the sun. Hidden below it, is a Jacuzzi, something you’re typically not going to find on a boat this size. You have a retractable awning that folds flush while not in use. And all the way forward, you’re going to have your wet bar, complete with sink and ice maker.

This 76′ Alpha Express is powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines that are 1900 horsepower each. They’ve got just under 1600 original hours and then you have your 32 kW Onan generator with 4400 hours, which just completed its 4000 hour service. What’s great about Cheoy Lee is not only do they over engineer their yachts but they use components onboard that are easily serviced all over the world; in this case, Caterpillar and Onan.

Before stepping inside why don’t we continue to the bow which is easily accessible by full walk arounds, both to port and starboard. The aft section features a nice sitting area with JL Audio surround sound. Forward, you’re going to have your sunpads and again keeping with that profile that the Alpha Express has, all of your deck gear is actually hidden below these hatches. Before we leave the bow, why don’t we face aft and you’re going to really notice the space-age lines that define what the Alpha Express is all about.

Now that we’ve highlighted the exterior spaces onboard, why don’t we step into the main salon where we’ll continue our walkthrough of the interior. Here we are in the main salon and the first thing that you’re going to notice is this awesome use of glass. So one of the key design features of this space is that you can actually combine the interior and exterior spaces into one by lowering this glass partition and swinging open these two glass doors.

To port and centerline, you’re going to have two love seats that comfortably seat six guests and to starboard is your pop-up TV. This modern helm station features three glass boning monitors. These three glass monitors easily interfaces your shipboard monitoring system, radar, chart plotter and depth sounder. Here at the helm station what’s great is that when you’re actually sitting in one of the three captain’s chairs, you have perfect 360-degree visibility and easy access to your rudder, throttles and joystick – all within an arm’s reach.

Stepping forward from the main salon, you’re going to step down into the lower lounge area that’s connected to the galley. Stepping down in the atrium galley, you’re really going to have a totally different vantage point where you’re going to be able to appreciate the use of glass onboard.

On the starboard side, you’re going to have your L-shaped settee and dinette and opposite to port, your full service galley. The appliances in this full-service galley are GE profiled. You have your refrigerator freezer, convection oven, glass stovetop, trash compactor and dishwasher. Another nice little feature is this 12 bottle wine storage. Surrounding the space overhead is built-in storage.

Stepping down from the galley, you enter the full beam master cabin. To port, you’re going to have your athwartship king berth. To starboard, you’re going to have your settee complete with pop-up TV. Aft of those two spaces, you’re going to have a walk-in closet and ensuite master bath. Continuing forward towards the guest accommodations, below the corridor, we’re going to find evidence of how well maintained this yacht is. Here we find two spotless bilges and machine spaces. To starboard is the smallest of three cabins where you can have a bunk room that comfortably sleeps two guests. Opposite of that you’re going to have a full-service bath that also serves as your dayhead. All the way forward towards the bow is your VIP cabin, which features a centerline queen berth and ensuite bath.
