LIONESSE is a 2001 Cheoy Lee Expedition 70 built at the Doumen shipyard on the Pearl River in China. She is a serious cruising platform, designed for long-range autonomy for extended periods away from shore side support, and for full-time living-aboard use. She is a safe, economical, and proven long range cruiser, having navigated from Alaska to the Chesapeake via the Panama Canal.
She is engineered for roominess and comfort, high fuel capacity, ample storage space, walk-in engine room, convenient workshop area, and safety at sea.
The lower deck has three staterooms each with an en-suite head, sleeping six in two queen beds and two twins. The walk-in engine room and a separate workshop/pantry space are amidships.
The main deck consists of a large galley forward, a dining room and main salon, with an aft fantail deck with staircase leading to the large swim platform.
The upper deck has a large enclosed pilothouse, a sky-lounge with day head, and a large open aft deck with Dynasty stainless gas grill and seating for a large group.
The interior of LIONESSE has been finished to a very fine quality, with high-gloss wood accents, wall-to- wall carpeting, cream-colored vinyl bulkheads and overheads, and granite and marble countertops.
The galley is located forward of the saloon and dining area on the port side. Large fixed windows face the foredeck. Bamboo floors, granite counter tops and high-end stainless steel appliances make this galley a wonderful environment for creating simple snacks or gourmet meals.
The pilothouse features a Portuguese bridge, and is equipped with a full complement of modem electronics and navigation aids.
LIONESSE has a conservative cruising range at 1600 nautical miles, running at 1750 rpm = 9.4 knots. She carries 2,400 gallons of fuel and only burns 13 gallons per hour (this figure includes running a Northern Lights 20kW generator). The twin Caterpillar 3306 diesel engines are rated at 290 hp each, and have Walker Air Seps, bypass oil filters, and ZF marine gears. Grouped Racor filters provide ample fuel filtering capacity with easy changeover while underway.
The stabilizers are 9 square foot fins by Naiad. Maneuvering in close quarters is made easier by the 12hp American Bow Thruster. There are twin Maxwell 3500 anchor windlasses on the foredeck, and twin Maxwell 2200 warping windlasses on the fantail. The 13.5-foot Novurania rigid bottom inflatable tender with a Yamaha 50 HP four-cycle outboard is launched and retrieved with a Nautical Strudures 1500-lb davit on the foredeck. A Rix 3HP scuba tank compressor is fitted in the lazarette with a dine tank available. A Sea Tel stabilized TV antenna feeds a Sony 32-inch flat screen TV and a 32-inch Panasonic TV.
Electrical system is run by two 20kw Northern lights generators ( 5300 hours), 8kw inverters by Trace backed by 16 ID marine batteries, and an 18kw Atlas shorepower energy system fed by two 50- Amp 240-volt shore power cords. Sentry battery chargers and Ample Energy monitor.
The freshwater tankage holds 600 gallons. The watermaker is built by Sea Recovery, and produces 33 gallons per hour. There are several Everpure water filters in the fresh water system.
The air conditioning system is a chilled water system by Aqua-air, with a 10-ton capacity. There are 5 Vacu-Flush heads which feed into a 140-gallon holding tank. A Delta Marine ozone generator provides odor control for both grey and black water waste tanks.
Safety features include an extensive alarm system with annunciator at the bridge monitoring the bilge pumps, high bilge levels, smoke alarms throughout the vessel, and any open doors. The fire suppression system in the engine room is Ansul CO2. A closed-circuit TV monitor in the wheelhouse provides a 360 degree view of the engine room. A Newmar Intercom links all of the interior spaces. A Buell air horn, ACR searchlight, and a Winslow 6-man liferaft round out the safety equipment.
