Cheoy Lee Shipyard has announced plans to introduce two models at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show: a 111-foot, express-style yacht dubbed the One Eleven and an Explorer 150, both created in conjunction with Jon Overing Yacht Design.

The One Eleven continues the expansion that Cheoy Lee began in 2012, when it introduced an express yacht line that now includes a 76 Express, 76 Express Flybridge and 87 Express Sportbridge Alpha. The One Eleven is expected to have crossover appeal for buyers of traditional and express-style yachts, complementing the builder’s classic Bravo and Global models.

“We will now literally have a yacht design for every oceangoing style and taste,” Gene Weeks, express project manager, stated in a press release. “We can customize many aspects of the interior and exterior layouts and create a different look because of our modular construction.”

The Explorer 150 has a steel displacement hull and a single Caterpillar 3512B engine (plus a diesel-propulsion engine as backup) that Cheoy Lee says reduces fuel consumption by 35 percent and allows a range from 7,000 to 9,000 nautical miles. That design is being marketed as a more eco-friendly model for anyone interested in cruising worldwide.
