CL Yachts’ newest launch, the CLB88 applies cutting-edge technology to improve upon and actually redefine all that is great about a classic flybridge motoryacht.

As the luxury and performance-driven division of Yachts the designers at CL Yachts set out to create a vessel with the ability to explore any port on the globe in style, safety and comfort. The resulting CLB88 reinvents the concept of a proper motoryacht with a classic flybridge. Crafted using carbon fiber and resin-infusion techniques for lightweight strength, the RINA-certified hull delivers a smooth, dry ride with a top speed of 25 knots. The flybridge level boasts a sun lounge and outdoor bar, galley and hoist to launch a tender. On the main deck, teak flooring stretches from an enclosed helm station with adjacent dinette and day head through the galley with center island. The salon features expansive windows providing a panoramic view of passing scenery. As with all CL builds, the handcrafted woodwork is exquisite. Further aft lies the cockpit with steps leading to the swim platform. Side decks allow safe, easy exterior passage from bow to stern. Down below, twin full-beam staterooms provide luxurious accommodations for the owner and VIP guests. A twin cabin and a double in the bow allow for additional guests and crew quarters;
