CL Yachts, the new name in luxury yachting experiences, is pleased to announce that the company sold its first yacht, a CLB72, at the Miami Yacht Show 2019, taking place Feb. 14–18. The Miami Yacht Show marks the official Miami launch of the CL Yachts brand. CL Yachts’ parent company is Cheoy Lee Shipyards Limited, known for over 130 years of quality and innovation. CL Yachts Vice President Panu Virtanen sold the CLB72 to a family that will be boating in Florida and the Northeast. It was listed at $3.95 million. “We are excited to announce the first sale from our new brand during the official launch here at the Miami Yacht Show,” said Hans Lo, project manager at CL Yachts. “At CL Yachts, we push innovation to new levels, to create an entirely new yachting design and experience. We look forward to selling many more of our yachts to discerning luxury buyers.”
The new owner celebrated the purchase with a Champagne toast along with friends, family and representatives from CL Yachts. The CLB 72 is part of the new performance and luxury brand from the Cheoy Lee Shipyards. The vessel is designed for those with a heart for adventure. Built upon the combined expertise of naval architect Howard Apollonio, and leading marine structural engineers Gurit, the CLB72 pushes the boundaries of marine engineering, achieving an exceptionally lightweight and aesthetically pleasing design without compromising the integrity of its structure. Its resin-infused composite hull and strategic use of carbon fiber ensures outstanding efficiency, performance, and durability. Meanwhile, the yacht’s streamlined silhouette is complemented by modern interiors that celebrate comfort in effortless style. From its multiple lounging areas at the fore deck, fly lounge, aft lounge, and beach platform to its large staterooms below deck, the luxury of space is a common theme that runs throughout the CLB72. Expansive windows, contemporary detailing, and sumptuous amenities further elevate the cruising experience, making days at sea all the more enjoyable for everyone on board.
Targeting an entirely new generation of discerning yacht owners, CL Yachts offers an unparalleled experience for the modern explorer through timeless vessels that power the desire for adventure. Blending engineering prowess, purity in design and time-honored craftsmanship, the brand champions innovation, authentic, honest experiences and a contemporary approach to yachting. The brand was conceived by Cheoy Lee Shipyards Limited. Also on display at the Miami Yacht Show is CL Yacht’s CLA76 ― a sleek successor to Cheoy Lee’s popular Alpha Express Series.
