In November 2012 a repeat client commissioned Claasen Shipyards to build a new Truly Classic 126ft. Claasen Shipyards has built many such yachts, all of which are designed by Hoek Naval Architects and are characterised by their combination of classic lines and advanced technologies.
The summer of 2013 marked the start of the construction of the new Truly Classic hull at Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw in Makkum and it is now nearing completion. The new yacht will be the largest in the Truly Classic range. She is being built in accordance with MCA LY2 regulations, allowing the yacht to feature in competitive sailing races as well as being used privately or for charter.
The deck layout is based on the successful concept of a private owner’s cockpit aft and a guest cockpit and deckhouse amidships. The construction of the interior – also from the boards of Hoek Design -‐ is also in full swing. The yacht will have a classic interior with various unique details in the woodwork. The walls and floors are made of Sweatania mahogany, while the floor borders are accentuated with maple inlays. The cabin ceilings will be finished in white to increase the sense of spaciousness. The combination of fine materials and finish will create a serene ambiance for owner and crew alike.
The hull of the yacht was turned by Bloemsma Aluminumbouw in Makkum several weeks ago and will soon be transported to the yard in Zaandam where the yacht will be finished for delivery in 2015.
In addition to this new Truly Classic 126 the yard has two Truly Classic 90ft yachts under construction and will soon start the build of a new J-class.
