The CLX96’s angular, sleek lines are more than just an exercise in style: the forward-sloping windshields on the main and upper decks are designed to reduce glare and heat while increasing interior living space. Combined with expansive glazing, the result is a light and airy interior that blends seamlessly with the exterior areas and seascapes, offering nearly uninterrupted 360-degree views.
The CLX96 speaks to a design philosophy incorporating style and substance in equal measure.
The shipyard is a leading builder of commercial vessels and luxury yachts. While her bold double reverse angle profile and iconic wing-shaped flybridge bulwark are visually distinctive, these elements were born from a holistic and functional reconsideration of yacht living.
Unprecedented amounts of light penetrate the interiors, made possible by advanced composite structures with strong, thin, light mullions that allow for oversized windows throughout.
It is reinforced on the main deck with triple folding doors to starboard that open up the midship area to the side deck, creating a quasi-alfresco dining area at the heart of the living space.
Forward the bridge, there is a generous additional deck space that is perfect for sun loungers. At the same time, on the foredeck, there is a welcoming ‘Piazza del Sole’: a circular lounge space that converts into a giant sun lounger. The generous swim platform makes for a perfect beach club in the stern, with an additional deck extension over the water.
The CLX96 offers four guest staterooms, including a large forward master suite complete with skylight over the king-size bed, a VIP cabin amidships with virtual skylight, and two twin guest staterooms with ensuite bathrooms. There are crew quarters aft for up to four crew.
The master stateroom includes his and her ensuite bathrooms in the bow, while a bow-mounted forward-facing HD camera can send the view forward for display on the 65-inch TV on the forward bulkhead.
Materials include walnut for the walls, teak flooring for the main and upper deck interiors, satin snowflake and black marble for the bars and countertops, and a range of textures and materials in off-whites, warm grays, and browns.
The CLX96 marks a bold new step for CL Yachts and intrepid sailors.
