Sailing since 1983
In 1983, in the French shipyard of Biot, skilled and passionate craftsmen shaped what architect Dominique Presles had designed. It was the magnificent Clovis, an 85 feet ketch rigged sailing yacht. Its aluminium 6060T5 core and high quality components combine technique and elegance into a unique body.
With 30 years of sailing under her belt, Clovis recently underwent a total refit to maintain and enhance her important and unparalleled characteristics, at the same time conforming the sailing yacht to the latest standards of comfort and safety.
An awakening of the senses
Clovis is not just a boat. Her crew is skilled and passionate and has been dedicated to her care for years. They live together and explore the sea responsibly discovering its most intimate emotions and hidden secrets.
Travellers aboard Clovis will feel the pleasure of sailing at sunset, enjoying starry nights in beautiful bays, waking up in front of a deserted beach and tasting fresh Mediterranean recipes.
This is the spirit of the Clovis holiday: to indulge in the most satisfying simplicities of life through an enriching experience, and to find harmony with yourself, with your loved ones and with nature.
Clovis and the Sea
Clovis cuts through the sea with 380 square metres of sails and reveals the beauty and strength of the wind and sea. Motor cruising up to 12 knots guarantees faster travel while still enjoying the fantastic views. Clovis is not only life on the sea.
With her, you can enjoy numerous harbors along the Mediterranean; from the most popular resorts for tourists to the most exclusive islands. One thing is for sure: Clovis offers a unique experience of sea and land.
Relax and fun
The sea breeze and its splendid views are the setting of possible activities. Sunbathing on the deck and then diving into the clear and bene c waters in heavenly beaches, opening your mind by reading a good book or listening to your favourite music, enjoying exquisite dishes and sophisticated wines, watching the sunset on the horizon... are only some of the best medicines for the body, soul and spirit. For lovers of active life, fun is not missing. The qualified crew is completely available for wonderful experiences of diving, snorkeling and fishing in the Mediterranean Sea. For "high speed" fun, let you get carried away by breathtaking water games. Sportsmen too may satisfy their passions with water skiing thanks to Clovis tender.
The pleasure of food
Clovis crew knows seafish well and often they fish directly from the yacht. The chef carefully chooses each ingredient whose freshness and seasonality he highly cares in order to prepare delicious dishes. The day begins with a hearty breakfast and the sunset is greeted with a glass of the best wine. Lunch and dinner are pure pleasure too. The Clovis crew pampers the senses of their guests not only by offering the chef cooking, but also by leading them to discover the tasty local specialties in selected restaurants.
