Claasen Shipyards have recently announced the delivery of the third Truly Classic 90 sailing yacht, christened Acadia.
Designed and engineered by Hoek Design, this aluminium vessel is 27.50m long and 6m wide, has a draft of 3.40m, and features a 35.60m keel-stepped mast and 11.40m boom made in carbon fibre by Hall Spars.
The CF sail package, supplied by Doyle, includes a mainsail, yankee and staysail, plus a red & white top-down furling asymmetrical A3 and a 580m² A2.
Acadia offers a perfect blend of classic lines with the very latest technologies. She boasts an eye-catching white hull, with a deep red underwater ship and a vivid red waterline adding to the distinguished and traditional look.
The twin cockpit arrangement that is one of the hallmarks of the Hoek Design concept comes into its own on Acadia. The centre cockpit is a fine place for socialising, whilst the wheel has been placed in the aft cockpit.
The interior is one of timeless elegance thanks to a template of raised and fielded mahogany panels and white-painted panels above the wainscot level.
The owner’s cabin, located aft, has direct access to the amidships section of the yacht, which is home to the deckhouse dining and navigation area.
Further forward are a well-equipped galley and two guest staterooms: a VIP on the port side with double bed and a twin-bunk cabin to starboard.
The double crew cabin is situated in the forepeak, whilst aft is an additional ‘pocket cabin’, on the starboard side after leaving the owner’s suite. This will be used as an extra stewardess berth when Acadia is being chartered.
Acadia’s engine room has been optimised to make the most logical use of space with all the systems installed in the best possible place for maintenance and access. For example, the generators and air conditioners, which rarely need to be accessed, are positioned in the back.
