Traditional lines, modern underwater ship and state-of-the-art materials like carbon fiber that's the Performance Classic 83 in a nutshell.

The Performance Classic yachts are one the representatives for sailors who love the elegant lines of a classic yacht but want a modern and performance-oriented underwater ship design with T-Keel instead of a long keel and hull, rudder and mast made of carbon. Needless to say, the yacht comes with systems to sail it with a minimum crew.

Responsible for the design is no one less than the Dutch design office Hoek Design that designed many yachts of this kind (including several J-Class yachts).

Other nice design features are a low deck profile and a flush deck that gives her a sporty look without losing the classic look.

The Performance Classic 83 has an owners site at the fore ship where is also the crew area and three double cabins amidship. There are currently no interior renderings, but the brand explains it as follows:

“A ‘New England’ styled hand built white paneled interior is dominated by the light and airy saloon with both formal and informal seating, a large galley and separate navigational area.”

The London-based brand Performance Classic Yachts with construction partners in Turkey offers also a 55 feet and a finished 66 feet version.
