CLX96 wins at Yacht & Aviation Awards
Set to premiere in 2022, the CL Yachts flagship earned its latest accolade at the 2021 International Yacht & Aviation Awards.
CLX96 won the Concept Under 40 Metres category at the 2021 edition of the International Yacht & Aviation Awards.
It’s the latest accolade for the CL Yachts flagship, which was a winner at the 2020 Good Design Awards and earned a Bronze in the Yacht and Marine Vessels Design Category of the 2020-21 A’Design Award & Competition.
Billed as a Sea Activity Vessel (SAV), CLX96 is designed by Jozeph Forakis and features a plumb bow and a striking profile distinguished by a reverse-angle design both fore and aft on the main deck. There’s also a reverse-angle windscreen on the upper-deck skylounge, which houses the sole helm station.
Notable outdoor areas include the Terrazza Portoghese forward of the skylounge and the Piazza del Sole forward on the main deck. Due to expansive glazing, the interiors on all three decks benefit from lots of natural light, while natural wood tones are among features of a contemporary interior.
On the lower deck, the full-beam master stateroom is located forward, at the widest part of the yacht, while the full-beam VIP is midships and there are two guest cabins in-between.
Albert Horsmon and Earl Alfaro are responsible for structural engineering and naval architecture respectively on CLX96, which will make her global debut in 2022.
