Look at the CL Yachts CLB88 in profile, and you’ll notice a combination of key design elements.
There’s the fine entry and high freeboard forward, and the form transitions into a straight sheerline gently descending in height as it stretches aft, resolving at the cockpit. The subtle drop helps create a relatively aggressive profile. It’s a look that the CLB88′s raked windows forward enhance, and that the lean-forward look of the hardtop and flybridge supports. The yacht’s amalgam of shapes creates a singular, salty aesthetic.
Beneath the seafaring look is function. The yacht has a resin-infused build in a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber, reducing weight and maintaining strength. The hull form is reinforced by a 3,000-gallon integral fuel tank, essentially creating a double-hull bottom.
The CLB88′s interior is “floated” too, meaning interior elements are not directly tied into the yacht’s support structure, resulting in reduced vibration and what should be a quiet ride.
This motoryacht’s ride could be spirited as well. Twin 1,600 hp Caterpillar C32 Acerts reportedly push it to a 25-knot top hop.
This yacht has four staterooms, plus two crew cabins. There are five guest heads and one crew head. The master stateroom is full-beam amidships.
A lower helm and country kitchen are forward on the main deck, with the dinette across from the helm. The CLB88′s flybridge is set up for alfresco meals with L-shaped seating and a table to port, as well as a bar with five stools to starboard. Forward on centerline is the helm station, and to port is companion seating. Far aft is room for chaise-style chairs and a davit.
The CLB88 is for yachtsmen ready to transition to a crewed vessel. It has room for a cruising family, offers solid performance, has an open floor plan, and is a bluewater build with a high level of customization.
