The Global 103’s Pilothouse design by Cheoy Lee was designed by Mike Burvenich and Marty Isenberg of Cheoy Lee North America.
The design of the Global 103 Pilothouse motor yacht stems in part from the observation that, while a few yacht owners seek to downsize, they don’t want to give up valuable features such as spacious masters or galleys and privacy. The layout of the new Global 103 Pilothouse aims to appeal to these motor yacht owners.
Mike Burvenich’s Global 103’s next generation mid-size motor yacht design succeeds the very successful Cheoy Lee’s 95/100 series. The Global 103 Pilothouse motor yacht features a full-beam master stateroom on the main deck with a his and hers bathroom. A walk-in storage compartment forward can be converted into an office. The spacious galley features a large sitting area and practical centre island. Aft of the galley is a formal dining area and the main-deck salon. The lower deck is reserved for four guest staterooms that can be configured in a number of ways. All Iayouts make room for a large foyer area with natural light and a washer and dryer. A small refrigerator and icemaker are optional but a nice plus to consider for guest comfort. The skylounge level contains the pilothouse, which offers access to the foredeck. The full-beam skylounge opens out to a spacious sitting area with room for a hot tub.
Crew quarters on the Cheoy Lee Global 103 Pilothouse are located aft of the engine room, and have two separate accesses including a port side door that allows the crew to reach the galley without walking through the salon. Different layouts for the crew quarters are available to make room for a crew mess or additional cabins, according to owners’ needs. With twin Caterpillar C32 ACERTs, the Global 103 Pilothouse motor yacht has a comfortable cruising speed in the low to mid 20-knot range.
Designer Mike Burvenich comments “We believe the Global 103’ is the way of the future for the motoryacht market. In the 103’ we developed a yacht with similar amenities found in 150’ motoryachts but in a much smaller package which can be run more efficiently with a smaller crew and go to places which have a hard time accommodating the larger yachts. In addition the 103’ has a much higher top end speed then most motoryachts this size but still can be run very economically even at a cruise speed over 22 knots.”
