New Model: Cheoy Lee CLX96

After much anticipation Cheoy Lee CL Yachts first sea activity vessel inspired super yacht the CLX96 has made its technical launch. The splashing of the 29 meter super yacht was briefly held up due to issues surrounding the pandemic, but now the process is humming along smoothly.  Which is excellent, because the vessel has already received much fanfare for its innovative design and luxurious features. CLX96 has previously won Good Design Award 2020, a Bronze A’ Design Award 2021 as well as the prestigious award from the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2021.  CLX96 rugged performance is mirrored by her unique aesthetic, which masterfully blends gracefulness and muscularity into a style referred to as workboat chic. Paramount to this look is the yacht’s two-level deckhouse with reverse-sheer windshields.  The angle of those windshields has a highly functional, multiple purpose. First, in rough seas, water washes away from a reverse sheer smoothly and efficiently, ensuring good sight-lines when you need them the most. Secondly, the angle of the windshields reduces a greenhouse effect in the interior, keeping it cool and comfortable for passengers. The windshield works in concert with CLX96’s instantly recognizable plumb bow to make this yacht the star at any harbour she may visit.  A final advantage is that the vertical windows allow for more interior space, a major reason why this yacht feels so massive inside.  The instantly iconic profile was dreamed up by Milan-based designer Jozeph Forakis, who is best known for his work outside the yachting industry, who brought a fresh touch and a rebel’s insight to the sketches. CL Yachts anticipates a cruising speed of 22 knots and a top speed of 27 knots at half load and coming from twin Caterpillar 1900hp engines.
