CL Yachts set to debut at the Newport International Boat Show

by CL Yachts 24 Aug 2019 15:16 PDT 12-15 September 2019

The luxury performance yacht brand making waves within the industry, CL Yachts, is gearing up to mark another company first - this time debuting at The Newport International Boat Show in Rhode Island.

CL Yachts' popular CLB72 model will be on display during what has become known as one of America's largest and most dynamic in-water boat shows, taking place on Newport's downtown waterfront between September 12 to 15, 2019.

CL Yachts officially launched at The Miami Yacht Show in February this year to much industry acclaim. The brand fuses engineering prowess, design innovation, and state-of-the-art technology to create unique luxury performance vessels that go beyond the expectations of discerning modern explorers.

The innovation-lead company has already seen sales of their CLB72 model in both Florida and internationally, and is excited to showcase the brand, and their best-selling cruiser, to a new audience in Rhode Island.

"Following the first introduction, and consequent success, of CL Yachts in Florida, we look forward to venturing to the North East region of the States and entering into what is a new market for us," says Martin Lo, director of CL Yachts' parent company, Cheoy Lee Shipyards. "We see The Newport International Boat Show as a pivotal way to connect with knowledgeable yacht enthusiasts, and allow us the opportunity to present a luxury performance experience that we believe is truly unparalleled."

Built upon the combined expertise of naval architect Howard Apollonio and leading marine structural engineers Gurit, the CLB72 employs state-of-the-art technology. Highlights include a resin-infused, composite hull, a foam-cored monocoque structure and strategic use of carbon fiber which creates an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. Other advanced offerings include a gyro stabilization, an active interceptor system, and a CZONE monitoring system. When it comes to performance, the vessel always offers a smooth ride, delivering a highly-efficient fuel consumption rate combined with impressive top speeds of up to 31 knots.

Design-wise, the CLB72 fuses elegance and warmth. The boat champions comfortable lounging spaces that are meticulously optimized to entertain guests and connect families. Familiar interior elements are reinterpreted with amplified sophistication to beautifully combine comfort and luxury, while expansive windows, contemporary detailing, and first-class amenities further elevate the cruising experience.

Not on display during the Newport Rhode Island Show, but equally compelling, are CL Yachts' two other luxury performance models. The first is the CLA76; a true athlete, this is the sleek successor to parent company Cheoy Lee's popular Alpha Express Series. The second, making a "sneak preview" in Newport before her official unveiling in November, is the all new CLB88: designed in collaboration with internationally celebrated designer Jozeph Forakis. Totally original, she is a modern reinterpretation of the classic motor yacht.

Can one thing define a vessel?
Yes, and it can be enough to tip the scales. So let's look at some 'ones' of the new Maritimo M75 Well I suppose it might. However, rather than disappear down a wormhole into an elaborate discussion, I can say this. One thing can certainly be enough to tip the scales one way or another in a purchase decision for an impending yacht owner. Posted on 14 Dec 2021
