The countdown for the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show has officially started and CL Yachts is thrilled to display its new models, CLX96 and CLB65.
Featuring innovative design coupled with CL Yachts’ cutting-edge technology and craftsmanship, these two luxury vessels will turn the heads of even the most demanding yacht enthusiasts.
The award-winning CLX96 has been created from the ground-up in collaboration with international designer Jozeph Forakis, with structural engineering from Albert Horsmon and naval architecture from Earl Alfaro.
The new flagship of CL Yachts is the choice for modern explorers who seek comfort, innovation and style from their yacht with extended capabilities and performance.
CLX96 heralds the establishment of the new X-Series that will be joined by more models in the future.
At a glance, you immediately notice an inviting, open layout, rugged and adventurous proportions and clean, fluid lines.
The versatile CLX96 has a multitude of innovative functional and design features including a workboat chic two-level, reverse-angle deckhouse using inverted trapezoids that maximise space as well as reduce glare and heat.
The plumb bow further amplifies accommodation while providing hydrodynamic efficiency.
With a blurring of lines between the interior and exterior, the main deck’s windows and bi-fold doors are echoed in the flybridge’s spectacular glazing with retractable windows on three sides, leading guests from the sky lounge and pilothouse to the sky deck alfresco dining area aft.
Other unique exterior social zones include the Terrazza Portoghese forward of the sky lounge, the Piazza del Sole seating and sunning area on the foredeck and the expansive stern beach club with its hydraulically submerging swim platform.
Below deck, she features a four-cabin layout, including a full-beam master suite with skylight, VIP stateroom with virtual skylight and two twin guest cabins.
Powered by twin 1900 hp Caterpillar C32 engines, she has a maximum speed of over 25 knots at full load.
Built upon the combined expertise of naval architect Howard Apollonio and marine structural engineers Gurit, the CLB65 is designed for ease of use and trouble-free boating.
With a resin-infused composite hull, the vessel uses carbon fibre strategically – ensuring outstanding efficiency, performance and durability.
The yacht’s streamlined silhouette is complemented by modern interiors that celebrate comfort in style. Versatile spaces both outdoors and in ensure that each guest finds their perfect spot of bliss aboard CLB65.
The main deck’s windows allow natural light to flow throughout the space, creating an inviting and warm ambience.
Conveniently located between aft deck and saloon, the open-style galley serves both areas and is the ideal place for gathering. Up top, the expansive flybridge has an electric grill and seating for lounging and relaxation.
Located midship on the lower deck, the full-beam master stateroom offers a serene oasis for rejuvenation. The VIP stateroom is located forward and the guest cabin has twin beds.
CLB65 has upper and lower helm stations, each equipped with dual STIDD helm seats and VOLVO 17-inch glass cockpit displays and is powered by twin VOLVO IPS1050 Pod Drives. She has a top speed of 27 knots.
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show will run from 26 to 30 October 2022.
