Claasen Shipyards starts construction of 77-foot Pilot Classic

Claasen Shipyards recently started the construction of a new 77-foot Pilot Classic yacht, the third yacht of this specific model. Based on drawings by Hoek Design, the yard has already built various Truly Classic yachts, including the popular Truly Classic 90.

Amongst the changes, the show will last one day longer than usual. Representatives have promised an easier and more engaging experience, with two primary goals of strong internationalisation and promotion of all-Italian excellence.

The emphasis of the vessel is focused on easy-to-maintain basic materials such as aluminium and GRP. She accommodates up eight people on board over several cabins, including a luxurious owner’s suite, a VIP cabin and two guest cabins. The spacious deckhouse offers ideal protection from all elements as well as stunning views which can be enjoyed in maximum comfort.

She also features a smart anchor system. Due to the system being entirely flush and integrated within the aluminium hull below the waterline, it is invisible on the exterior of the yacht. The application of the anchor system prevents unexpected damage to both the anchor and the hull. In addition it keeps resistance to a minimum - an important aspect during races.

The new aluminium sail yacht features a modern underwater section on spec and is scheduled for delivery in early 2016.
