CL Yachts to debut CLB88 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show – The motor yacht — reimagined
Florida. — (October 19, 2020) — CL Yachts will officially debut its award-winning flybridge motor yacht, CLB88, in the United States this Fall. The CLB88’s unveiling will showcase at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) between October 28 and November 1, 2020.
CLB88 is a holistic reflection of CL Yachts’ core DNA: innovation. While the design reflects a continuum in a great tradition motor yacht building, multi-disciplinary creator Jozeph Forakis has reimagined this all-new vessel with original thinking. While CLB88 hints at ageless hallmarks of a state-of-the-art, luxury yacht, she is updated with a modern touch. A testament to CLB88’s exceptional design, the vessel has received a 2019 GOOD DESIGN Award within the transportation category, presented by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design.
“The exterior of CLB88 is designed to rekindle the collective memories and desires of most yachting lovers,” said Forakis. “Her effortless beauty and balanced proportions are timeless, but her overall look is distinctly bold and contemporary. With the interior, pure sunlight and open, flowing spaces are the primary ingredients, giving the feeling of being connected to the water and air.”
“CLB88 marks a new chapter for us. We call CLB88 the motoryacht, reimagined for modern times. Combining classic motor yacht lines with a modern aesthetic, we created a timeless design ready for any adventure,” says Hans Lo, deputy director of CL Yachts.
The boat’s interior and exterior embrace an inviting open layout – offering a seamless continuum of space. The result provides an easy flow of living and entertaining without compromising on function. The use of expansive windows and neutral colors add to the harmonious feeling of comfort, while a thoughtful combination of contemporary materials, such as Fenix NTM and Corian, mix with classic components, such as leather and stone. Carbon fiber decorative elements playfully hint at the use of material in the boat’s structure.
Along with the official debut of CLB88 in the United States this Fall, CL Yachts will digitally unveil the highly-anticipated cross-over vessel, CLX96. CL Yachts also has a CLA series – a sportier, compact collection that excels in efficiency and performance, and a CLB series – a range that draws upon traditional yachting hallmarks and family-friendly design.
