CL Yachts’ 20m flybridge motor yacht will make its Oceania debut at Sanctuary Cove in late May.

CLB65 (click for Review) is on its way to Australia, where it will make its country debut at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from May 23-26. The model had its world premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October 2022 before making its Asia debut in Hong Kong last year.

CL Yachts’ entry-level model, the brand’s first to feature an aft galley, will be displayed at the Sanctuary Cove show in Queensland by Sydney Marine Brokerage, CL Yachts’ dealer for Australia.

Andrew Withers, the dealership’s Managing Director, said: “CLB65 is an interesting addition to the Australian market and offers so many features key to cruising this region. It encapsulates the essence of waterside living and delivers an incredible onboard experience, but is equally capable of taking you anywhere you want to go thanks to a carbon-reinforced, resin-infused hull and a 27-knot top end.” 

The 19.7m flybridge motor yacht has a wide, 6.05m beam, a Howard Apollonio-designed hull and twin 800hp Volvo Penta IPS 1050 engines. Outdoor areas include a large flybridge that extends all the way aft, providing shade and shelter to the cockpit below, which offers alfresco dining.

On the main deck, the interior starts with an aft galley to port opposite starboard dining, before a raised forward saloon and helm station to starboard. The lower deck includes a full-beam master suite, forward VIP and a twin cabin, all with en-suite bathrooms.

Martin Lo, Director of CL Yachts, said: “As well as offering the very best fit and finish, and contemporary classic styling in a variety of materials to suit each client’s taste, we also consider the cruising areas and cruising style for our key territories.

“This means that for each of our models, including CLB65, we have the capability to develop different layouts that match the culture, cruising grounds, climate and customer trends of those territories.

 “Australia is an exciting market for us and we think CLB65 is an exciting model for Australians, offering the perfect platform for the Australian boating lifestyle. We can’t wait to see the response to CLB65 at the boat shows this year.”
