CL Yachts will complete American sea trials with award-winning CLX96

CL Yachts has announced that its first Sea Activity Vessel (SAV), the award-winning CLX96, is currently enroute to the United States to undergo sea trials.

The CLX96 was recently loaded onto a transport vessel to travel across the Pacific Ocean and through the Panama Canal, with a final destination of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

CLX96, while built for an international clientele, is exceptionally outfitted for the American market. The yacht’s rugged, eye-catching lines were penned by Milan-based designer Jozeph Forakis.

The award-winning yacht takes some of her design cues from workboats, with a two-level deckhouse and an inverted windshield that will clear rough water much more quickly than a traditionally raked windshield. The design also helps keep the yacht’s interior cool by reducing any greenhouse effect given by overhanging glass.

True to its crossover aesthetic, CLX96 has both speed and long-range performance ready for whatever adventures await her owner. The yacht features large deck spaces, and can make an impressive 24 to 25 knots at full speed and full load.

CL Yachts’ CLX96 has already won a Good Design Award 2020, a Bronze A’ Design Award 2021, and the prestigious award from the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2021.

Once CLX96 arrives in Fort Lauderdale, she will undergo sea trials with a select group of potential owners this summer. CL Yachts will then begin readying her for the big stage at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
