Superyacht Firefly's debut at SuperYacht Cup in Palma de Mallorca


The stunning classically lined racing yacht Firefly, recently launched in Amsterdam and the first in an exciting new series of F-class one designs, made her racing debut at the latest SuperYacht Cup in Palma de Mallorca and received many positive reactions from press, visitors and other participants.

Launching a whole new series of competitive F-Class yachts, 115ft / 35m aluminum sloop Firefly, designed by Andre Hoek and built at Claasen Shipyards in the Netherlands was a gorgeous sight, with her long, low sheer giving her at once a truly classic look, with a totally modern flair. Firefly also performed well, bringing in a third in her class.

Firefly has been constructed according to the highest quality standards in the Netherlands. The hull was built by Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw, builder of three J-class and two in option hulls to date, and Firefly was completed by Claasen Shipyards*, most recently responsible for the J-class yacht Lionheart.

The unprecedented combination of classic lines, modern design, advanced technical systems, high performance spars and rig and unconventional bold material combinations, give her a unique quality that will reverberate in the months to come when she will also participate in other events like the Maxi Rolex Cup (Sardinia) 5th of September – 10th of September and the Voiles De Saint-Tropez 24th of September – 2nd of October.
