A NEW BREED OF RACER
Claasen was proud to be chosen as the yard to build Firefly, the first of the stunning and timelessly lined F-class yachts. Designed by Andre Hoek, the F-class captures the spirit of the J-class in terms of looks and then adds some very distinctive 21st-century features.
The Claasen success story has also been driven by the ability to offer a truly customized approach to boat building. This is hugely appreciated by the growing number of proud Claasen owners
PLAY TO WIN
Excitement is the name of the game with the F-class as winning a race will be decided not by the design of the vessel but by the skills of the owners and the six-to-eight sailors who crew her. Meanwhile, the timeless look & feel and top-class Dutch design of an F-class will ensure that they retain their value.
These all-aluminium speed machines come with carbon spars and a composite rigging. The combination of a T-style fin keel with a 26-tonne lead bulb and carbon high aspect ratio spade rudder is exceptionally powerful. You can also opt for a lifting keel should you prefer. Either way, an F-class yacht can be effortlessly steered with two fingers.
An affordable luxury
This is certainly the case with Firefly, the first F-class yacht to be launched in 2011. Her success shows that the F-class is affordable in terms of the cost of construction.
