F-Class yacht Firefly
The first stunning and timelessly lined F-class yacht firefly was launched in May 2011. the first of a new series of F-class one designs, Firefly made her debut at the superyacht cup in Palma de Mallorca 2011 and immediately took the spotlight.
Designed by Hoek Design, Firefly was constructed in the Netherlands to the highest quality standards available. Her hull was built by Bloemsma Aluminiumbouw and completed by Claasen Shipyards, most recently responsible for the build of the J-class Lionheart.
Total construction took 9 months from the first drawing, until sea trials. This can be considered extremely fast for a superyacht of this size.
The combination of classic lines, modern design, advanced technical systems, high performance spars and rig with unconventional bold materials give Firefly her unique quality and finish.
All sailing systems are hydraulic, with harken winches, Lewmar deck gear and PBO rigging. these specifications can be tailored and designed to your personal likes and preferences.
Firefly is powered by steyr Marine engines. the folding propeller is driven by a 6-cylinder 245 hp while the integrated flywheel generator is driven by a 4-cylinder steyr 106 hp, which generates 4kw for the hydraulic pump and charging batteries.
Firefly is rigged with a carbon mast and boom along with a carbon rudder, which were selected to minimize weight while maximizing racing performance.
specifically designed for long distance racing, the water ballast system efficiently shifts 5 tons of water from one side to the other within two minutes, optimizing time and performance.
