FIREFLY Bloemsma & Claasen | From EUR€ 75,000 /wk

Sailing Yacht FIREFLY is a 35.05-metre schooner designed by the prestigious Hoek Design and built by the well known Dutch shipyard Claasen Jachtbouw. Hoek's Firefly Yacht is the first in the Hoek 115 F-class classic series. 'Firefly' was launched in June 2011 and features aluminum hull as well as superstructure.

NOTABLE FEATURES: ~ Ideal for yacht racing ~ No accommodation onboard

Firefly's aluminum hull was built at the Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw, and she was completed by Claasen Jachtbouw. Her deck layout is comparable to a modern maxi with large open cockpit and separate cockpit for the helmsman. On deck and in the interior Firefly features a minimalistic interior with pipe costs forward of the mast, a stall shower and separate toilet, locker space for all the crew, a small galley and a navigation table.


Firefly Yacht’s technical systems are very advanced. The main engine is a Steyr 6-cylinder driving a folding propeller and IFG generator, while a 4-cylinder Steyr engine drives an IFG generator and hydraulic pump. All sailing systems are hydraulic with Harken winches and Lewmar deck gear. A water ballast system is built for long-distance races, with five tonnes of water that can be transferred from one side to the other within two minutes.
