“Capt’n Squid” is a well-maintained and upgraded example of this classic and enduring design. She cruises at a miserly 3.8 GPH in comfort, and is ready to cruise the deep blue with you and your crew. She could easily be your private island home.


Few yachts are better designed for cruising than the Cheoy Lee 40 Long Range Cruiser, and their reputation for designing and building quality and sturdy cruising vessels are not lost on this example. Seaworthy and classic lines make you proud in any port. Wide non-skid side decks, large working foredeck, and a very inviting bridge area make her deck space functional yet perfect for entertaining. Below decks the same Cheoy Lee joinery and design make her a sought after trawler on today’s market. "Capt’n Squid" features extra capacity fuel and water for long range 1000 mile+ cruises. Two comfortable staterooms with two heads & showers,  a galley up and a roomy salon and staterooms with more than ample storage provides for a perfect live-aboard!

The deep forefoot and its long deep keel and a displacement hull make her sea-keeping qualities unequalled in a boat this size. Her mast lowers for minimum bridge clearance if needed. You could leave the dock today to begin your cruise or live-aboard in comfort!
