CLAN AGAIN is the culmination of Luca Brenta (Wally Gator) design, Italian sensitivity in the
construction and the owners desire to have a yacht which is both, fast and very sexy.
The interior is finished with matching mahogany bulkheads, trim and cabinetry. The soles are teak
and holy, overhears are white Awlgrip and the upholstery is white leather. The craftsmanship is of
the highest leve1 and the attention to detail is unbelievable.
All cabins have opening ports and hatches, air-conditioning controls, Hella Turbo fans, reading
lights and loads of storage in drawers and hanging lockers.
From forward: A large chain locker followed by a sail/line/fender locker. An athwartship head with
manual toilet, basin and shower followed aft by what the owner designates as the crew cabin. There
are upper/lower berths to starboard with hanging lookers, desk and drawers to port. The water
maker is under the lower berth.
Next aft is the galley to port and a crew dinette to starboard with massive refrigerator/freezer boxes
Aft of the galley is the ful1 width salon with a huge U-shaped dinette to port with enclosed storage
outboard, and to starboard is an L-shaped lounge with enclosed storage both outboard and forward.
The mast is completely out of the salon, the stereo and color TV are flush mounted in the starboard
cabinets. Aft of the salon and up 2 steps is the raised deckhouse with a settee to port and the nav-
desk to starboard. The twin generators are mounted in the sound proofed room under the raised
deckhouse. The extensive electric panel is athwartship and creates a separation from the deckhouse
and the salon. At the nav. desk is an engine control (throttle and gear) and the auto-pilot, and the
yacht can be driven from the protection of the deck house.
The main entrance from the forward cockpit is centered at the aft end of the deck house. Down a
step and aft to port is a guest cabin with twin berths and a private head with 24V toilet, basin and
shower stall. There is engine access from under the berth.
Down a step and aft to starboard is the passageway aft with engine room access from 2 doors.
Outboard and to starboard is the 2nd guest cabin with upper/lower berths and a private head with
24V toilet, basin and shower.
At the end of the passageway is, a companionway, off-centered, to the aft steering cockpit. To
starboard are 2 berths for the off watch crew. To port is the owners private cabin with queen sized
berth to port and lockers aft. The owners. cabin includes a head with 12V toilet, basin and shower.
Aft of the steering cockpit is a huge lazerette with 2 deck hatch access. While at anchor the entire
stern opens dozen to form a huge swim platform and the lazerette is then accessible for all the water
toys. The dingy is carried on deck in front of the mast.

CLAN AGAIN was built with no expense spared. She is extremely strong and light, which relates
to very fast sailing.
The unique hull construction is incredibly strong and stiff, the construction technique was done over
a male hull mold and started with one layer of mahogany, one layer of Kevlar, 2 layers of cedar laid
at 90 degrees diagonal, 2 layers of carbon fiber and finally 2 layers of fiberglass, all lay-ups were
done wet and vacuum bagged.
The keel assemble is stainless steel athwartship braces and Stainless Steel keel with lead torpedo.
Making her quite stiff under-sail and consequently very comfortable. Due to
the fin keel and large balanced rudder she is very responsive to helm input and handles well in close
quarters. The hull is easily driven with less sail area than similar sized yachts.
Full ABS Maltese Cross 100+ certified at all phases of constructions.
The vessel is in pristine condition and has been consistently maintained by a professional licensed
Luca Brenta has recently been associated with the very successful Wally Gator program, and CLAN
AGAIN is every bit as well thought out. She is the essence of simplified sailing with hydraulic sail
handling all within the helmsmanís reach. With the split cockpit deck layout, guests are not
bothered by all the sail handling chores. Both the forward crew cabin and the starboard guest cabin
could be converted to doubles very easily which would only enhance CLAN AGAIN if she were to
be considered for the crewed charter industry.
