When Cheoy Lee Shipyards commissioned renowned Naval
architect, Charles Wittholz to design the Wittholz 53, the
prerequisites demanded exceptional performance, ease of handling
combined with the maximum degree of structural strength. It was
further specified that the hull integrity be combined with the basic
elements inherent in all Cheoy Lee sailing yachts' grace and
beauty. The result of Cheoy Lee's rigorous requirements and the
expertise of Charles Wittholz has forged a graceful and responsive
yacht that is quick and dry, and embodies every luxurious
appointment and every convenience available.
