Positioned as a “fresh approach to the norm”, CL Yachts’ CLX96 has successfully undertaken sea trials ahead of delivery.
The much-anticipated first outing of CL Yachts CLX96 resulted in a successful sea trial session.
The CL Yachts CLX96 lived up to the high standards of CL Yachts Director, Martin Lo and was able to reach a top speed between 24 to 25 knots at full load condition with weights simulating tender and owner’s gear.
“Our captain reports that the boat handled well and was very responsive to the helm,” says Lo. “Two thrusters at the bow and stern provided a much higher level of confidence when docking.
“We have ourselves a yacht that operates smoothly throughout her RPM range. Thanks to her stabilisation options, including a Quick MC56 gyrostabiliser and Sidepower fins, she is very steady in a seaway as well.”
Her international debut is planned for the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show where her unique combination of aesthetic appeal, onboard comfort, and serious seaworthiness are sure to make her the star of the show.
“CLX96 is a concerted effort to mark the real deal behind our brand,” says Martin Lo, the company’s director.
“We wanted a fresh approach to the norm, and we did that by allowing designer Jozeph Forakis the freedom to create something different and unique, while holding true to our core values of quality, innovation and uncompromising seaworthiness.”
CLX96 is currently out of the water for final fitting. More sea trials will be conducted prior to her Asia debut this spring in Hong Kong.
