Dutch builder Claasen Yachts recently launched a 23-meter motoryacht with a design by Hoek Designs. Once it is completed and delivered to its owner it is expected to serve as a chase and support boat to a sailing yacht. It is to be called “Stargazer” and the finished product represents a fruitful collaboration between Claasen yards and Vitters Yachts.
The 76-foot long vessel has classically designed lines of Hoek Design. At her widest point she stretches almost 22-feet and has a minimal draft of 1.1-meters or 3.63-feet. The designer of the yacht Andre Hoek suggests that the finished lines of the vessel are timeless and also they perfectly match and complement that of the mother sailing yacht that it will be supporting. A pair of Scania engines each with 912 horse power will run the vessel up to 25-knots. Economical cruise speed is calculated to be 15-knots.
Onboard there is room enough for two double cabins and a twin to house extra crew and guests that can’t be slept on the sailing yacht. Stargazer will also house extra stores for the mother yacht; as well as shuttle guests to and from shore and also serve as a diving platform when they take guests to nice dive spots. Meanwhile, construction of the hull was done in aluminium and the superstructure finished in wood to help with the classic dating.
