One of the most popular is the Truly Classic 90, examples of which include Kealoha and Atalante, launched by Claasen Shipyards in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Now we are proceeding with construction of our third Truly Classic 90, which will hoist her sails in the spring of 2016.
This exciting project is unique in many ways. She will have an eye-catching black hull, with a dark-blue underwater ship and white waterline adding to the distinguished looks. The colour of the hull will be similar to that of the J-class Lionheart, which we completed several years ago.
As you know, Claasen Shipyards is renowned for having almost all yachtbuilding disciplines in-house. The aluminium hull of the TC 90 was built by our dedicated division in Makkum and has since arrived at the yard in Zaandam for outfitting. The spacious interior will be produced by the traditional timber division and feature a mahogany finish with a luxurious, stylish ambiance.
Sister yachts Kealoha and Atalante are known for their excellent view of the aft ship and the possibility to operate all sails from the cockpit. The cockpit also provides access to the aft deckhouse which accommodates the owner’s cabin, including a luxury bathroom. The aft ship also includes a single cabin. The owner’s cabin will have direct access to the amidships section of the yacht, which is home to the saloon, day head and navigation table. The saloon has great views all around, and is linked to the galley, dinette and three cabins fore, namely the guest cabin, captain’s cabin and crew cabin, each with its own bathroom.The exterior will be finished with beautifully varnished teak details, as is standard on all our yachts. The keel-stepped mast will be equipped with four sets of crosstrees. The mast (35.60m) and boom (11.40m) are made of carbon and supplied by Hall Spars. The new Truly Classic 90 will include a mainsail, yankee, staysail, MPS/asymmetrical and storm jib.These are exciting times at the yard as we are also busy with a Truly Classic 126 and a brand-new 45-metre J-class.
