CL Yachts completes seventh CLB72
CL Yachts has completed the seventh hull of the CLB72, which features several new features and upgraded engine options for a top speed of 31 knots.
CL Yachts has completed the seventh unit of CLB72 and is preparing the yacht to be delivered to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Designed with naval architect Howard Apollonio and marine structural engineering firm Gurit, the CLB72 was introduced in 2019 and has become the brand’s best-selling model.
Of the five already sold, four were delivered to clients in the USA and one was for a client in Hong Kong. The sixth unit – outfitted with an elegant walnut interior scheme – is currently located at CL Yachts’ North America office in Fort Lauderdale and is available for private tours and sea trials.
The CLB72’s standard option of twin Volvo Penta IPS 1050 engines provide a top speed of 27 knots, but the sixth and seventh units have feature Volvo Penta IPS 1350s for a top speed of 31 knots.
In hull seven, CL Yachts has introduced sliding windows in the galley and, for the first time, fully opening up-down electric windows in the adjacent saloon, providing an inside-outside feel to the main deck’s open-plan interior so guests feel at one with the surroundings.
The four guest cabins on the lower deck also benefit from improved natural ventilation due to the introduction of opening port lights. Although there is accommodation for two crew on board, the CLB72 is designed to be owner-operated.
Up top, the expansive flybridge offers an electric grill and enhanced L-shaped seating arrangement under the shade of the hardtop to ensure guests enjoy alfresco cooking and dining in fun, convivial ways.
Martin Lo, Director of CL Yachts, said: “We are delighted with the positive response to CLB72 in such a short space of time and are confident it offers an outstanding family cruising experience on the water.
“The valuable feedback from each of our clients means we have already been able to make a number of enhancements to elevate the yachting experience on CLB72. As a company, we never stop learning and growing.”
CL Yachts interiors are available in a range of highly considered, coordinated CMF (colour material finish) ‘palettes’ including the new contemporary hickory wood option for furniture.
The builder reveals an aft-galley design on its new entry-level model scheduled to debut in the fourth quarter, while also announcing recent awards and nominations for its larger models.
