CLX96 Soon will Be Ready for Sea Trial in USA
CL Yachts has announced that its first Sea Activity Vessel (SAV), the award-winning CLX96, is currently en route to the United States. The yacht was recently loaded onto a transport vessel and is making the long trek across the Pacific Ocean and through the Panama Canal with a final destination of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
CLX96, while built for an international clientele, is exceptionally outfitted for the U.S. market. Her silhouette was drawn up by Milan-based designer Jozeph Forakis, who brought a fresh touch and a rebel’s insight to the sketches. She takes some of her design cues from workboats, with a two-level deckhouse and an inverted windshield that will clear rough water much more quickly than a traditionally raked windshield. The design also helps keep the yacht’s interior cool by reducing any greenhouse effect given by overhanging glass.
The yacht has already won the Good Design Award 2020, a Bronze A’ Design Award 2021 as well as the prestigious award from the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2021. She can accommodate eight guests across four cabins. A focus on interior volume will also keep passengers happy, with enormous decks on which to luxuriate while underway – with private spaces to steal away for a quiet cup of coffee or a moment with a book. When the yacht needs to get to port quickly, it can make an impressive 24–25 knots at full speed and full load.
Once CLX96 makes landfall in the Sunshine State, she will undergo sea trials with a select group of potential owners this summer. Then CL Yachts will make her ready for the big stage at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
CL Yachts’ goal is to offer unparalleled experiences to the modern explorer. The luxury performance brand stands apart from its competitors thanks to its unique approach to design – driven by CL Yacht’s core value of innovation. Fusing progressive design with engineering prowess and state-of-the-art technology, every element of CL Yachts’ vessels are meticulously geared to steer luxury into uncharted territories.
