The 46 metre Cheoy Lee motor yacht Qing has been sold with Northrop & Johnson's Kevin Merrigan and Kristen Klein acting for the seller and Jarrett Hiebert of Merle Wood & Associates for the buyer.
Launched in 2012, she is the second in Chinese yard Cheoy Lee's Marco Polo range designed by Ron Holland and was most recently refitted in 2022. MCA compliant, she has a steel hull and composite superstructure and completed her 10-year Lloyd's Class survey in May.
As with her sister, Qing puts the captain’s cabin on the main deck forward (and to starboard of the library) so the owner enjoys a three-room suite aft of the bridge plus an open-air lounge. Of four possible guest cabins on the lower deck, one is arranged as a gym with a full en suite. With a built-in daybed, it can convert to a nanny cabin.
The décor is contemporary with horizontally banded gloss-finished Macassar ebony making up much of the panelling and built-in furnishings. Rich walnut floors add a masculine look. Window treatments are simple so as not to restrict views, while a multi-level lighting design creates a suitable night-time ambience or brightens grey days.
Qing is powered by a single Caterpillar 3512B engine of 1,911hp delivering a range of 5,000 nautical miles at an economical speed.
Qing was asking $9,800,000.
