Excerpt from the Choey Lee Association: Luders 36 – Sloop or Yawl. Combine the best talents of one of today’s outstanding Naval Architects, A.E. Bill Luders and one of the world’s leading builders, The Cheoy Lee Shipyard of Hong Kong, and the result is an exceptional yacht. The new Luders 36 is just such a yacht. Nothing has been spared in design or construction in the interest of making her one of the finest yachts in her size range ever to appear on the market. In the light of all the current fads in hull form, we asked Bill Luders to come up with his concept of the ideal design for a racing/cruising 36 footer, based on his years of experience in yacht design and construction, ranging from the well-known Luders 16 class through the Luders 27 (Storm) to the design and construction of the 12 meter AMERICAN EAGLE. The LUDERS 36 is the result, and its pedigree is further enhanced by the choice of the well-known Cheoy Lee Shipyard of Hong Kong as its builder. Cheoy Lee is one of the best known and most diversified Shipbuilders in the world, and is the largest builder of yachts outside the United States; over 2,000 Cheoy Lee Yachts in wood, steel and fiberglass have been built in recent years.
