CL Yachts Launches 27 Metre CLB88
by Miranda Blazeby
CL Yachts, the luxury performance division of Cheoy Lee, has launched the first 27 metre CLB88 motor yacht.
Designed by Milan-based designer Jozeph Forakis, the composite yacht features a RINA certified performance hull and is targeted towards “the family with a heart for adventure”, the builder said. It is due to make its debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this October.
An open plan layout and large exterior spaces provide far-reaching ocean views while the 1.65 metre draft enables entrance into shallow and remote anchorages and bays.
Accommodation is for a total of eight guests in four staterooms all furnished in “an equal level of luxury”. Two crew cabins meanwhile can accommodate a total of four staff.
The propulsion package consists of twin Caterpillar C32 Acert 1600 bhp each for a top speed of 25 knots.
Designer Forakis said the exterior of the yacht was designed “to stimulate the collective memories and imagination of every yachting enthusiast.”
“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,” he added.
