Designed by Dykstra naval architects and delivered in May 2014, the sixty-foot Claasen pilot
cutter Perseverance is the fruit of a resolute brief by the experienced Dutch owner, an
experienced sailor with a background in shipping. As a result, she is particularly easy to
operate, maintenance on all onboard systems can easily be performed by one person, and all
sails can be controlled from within the cockpit. Carbon masts ensure that Perseverance has
great stability without the need for heavy ballast despite her draught of just 2.6 metres, and all
the equipment is of an exceptional standard.
Perseverance’s classic lines are emphasised by a masculine aesthetic: the hull is a metallic
bronze colour by BMW, while the carbon mast is black and the cap rails are finished in solid
teak. This dynamic appearance is further enhanced by very wide teak planks on deck and an
exceptional feeling of space. The interior is modern, spacious and luxurious and offers two
double cabins for four guests, both cabins with their own bathroom. Perseverance is a true
delight for the senses, both in port and on open water.
