CLAASENCLASSIC YACHTS WITH A MODERN TWIST
Claasen Shipyards works with top designers from around the world and is always open to new ideas. With our home base in Holland, however, it is inevitable that we have enjoyed a rich history of collaborations with two of the great Dutch designers – Andre Hoek and Gerard Dykstra. And the results in terms of classic looking superyachts have been truly spectacular.
Each yacht has a customised interior layout and style, sail plan, keel, draft, deck gear, rig, technical systems and performance level.
TRULY CLASSIC EXCELLENCE
A great example of this partnership with Hoek Design has been the fact that nineteen of the Truly Classic semi-series concept have come off the Claasen slipways over the past decades. These much-acclaimed superyachts combine the elegant aesthetics of the 1930s with modern underwater hull configurations in seven lengths ranging from 56 to 116 feet.
Each yacht has a customised interior layout and style, sail plan, keel, draft, deck gear, rig, technical systems and performance level. All have made history in their own way. Click beneath to read more about the various fabulous Truly Classic yachts in the Claasen fleet.
Partnering with owners A different example of the classic approach is the recently launched 60 ft Pilot Cutter yacht Perseverance from Dykstra Naval Architects. The owner requested a comfortable performance yacht with traditional exterior lines. Perseverance may not be the largest yacht but she serves as a great example of how Claasen enjoys working with owners who know exactly what they require.
