Cklass Nautique - Background Briefing.

Before her retirement in early 2011, the Sakae Maru spent many years cruising the length and breadth of Japan as a government fisheries training vessel.

Knowing that this sturdy, immaculately maintained vessel would be perfectly suited for a long-range luxury explorer conversion, HYS purchased her shortly after being released from government service.

After all fit-out and functionality requirements were hammered out with her new owner, the conversion process began in April of 2013.

When she emerges from our facility in mid February 2015, the newly christened Cklass Nautique will include a 45 square meter owner's penthouse with Jacuzzi (forward) and open air lounge (aft), massive 60 square meter saloon, bar, formal dining and kitchenette area, 30 square meter alfresco dining deck, a 70 square meter helideck and outdoor entertainment platform, gymnasium, cinema, four en-suite guest accommodations and a 80 square meter tender deck which - when clear of tenders and other toys - doubles as a "beach club" lounge area with fold-out water-level side terraces.
