Truly Classic sailing yacht Acadia launched by Claasen

The third hull in the Truly Classic 90 series Acadia has been launched by Dutch shipyard Claasen. This 27.5 metre sloop is the follow-up to Kealoha and Atalante.

Built from an aluminium hull and superstructure to Lloyd’s and MCA classification, Acadia features naval architecture and exterior styling by Hoek Design.

The layout includes accommodation for five guests and three crew, split across five en-suite cabins, including a full-beam owner’s suite aft. Claasen adds that the interiors have been finished with mahogany woodwork at the yard’s Zandaam facility.

The aft deckhouse of this classically styled sailing yacht features direct access to the owner’s cabin, while the raised central saloon provides excellent all-round views, with a central superyacht staircase linking this area to the lower-deck dinette and galley. Five pairs of skylights will ensure that plenty of natural light permeates through to Acadia's lower deck.

Acadia will fly a Category 0 set of Spectra laminated sails (mainsail, yankee, staysail, MPS/asymmetrical and storm jib), all of which can be operated from the cockpit. The rig includes an 11.4 metre boom and a 35.6 metre keel-stepped carbon mast by Hall Spars, which will be equipped with four sets of crosstrees.

A 240hp Yanmar 4LHA-STP engine will provide auxiliary power, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 4,000 litres. With a beam of six metres and a maximum draft of 3.4 metres, Acadia displaces 63 tonnes, including 18 tonnes of ballast.

Other projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include a Truly Classic 126 and a brand-new 45 metre J-class yacht.
