C-Yacht mourns the death of yacht designer Frans Maas
The team of C-Yacht and Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders are deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden news of the death of Frans Maas.
Since 1976, Frans Maas had been a regular yacht designer at C-Yacht and Zaadnoordijk where he developed a variety of models. He is the mastermind behind the current C-Yacht series and developed, among other, the C-Yachts12.50 and 11.00.
“We know Frans Maas not only as an excellent yacht designer”, says CEO Jan Muller. “We also know him as a passionate and highly skilled sailor”. Our entire team is deeply saddened by this huge and tragic loss. And our thoughts are with his family and friends. We wish them strength in this difficult time.”

C-Yacht 1250i TEST: boating magazine YACHT
Our newest creation, the 1250i, is currently being tested by various nautical media. Europe’s biggest boating magazine YACHT chose a different approach: An offshore cruise …with lots of wind. And you bet she passed with flying colours! Out at the North Sea, with waves 3 metres high we had 2 ships, 2 editors, 2 photographers, 12.6 measured knots and a 1250i which felt and performed just fine. Shortly more details about the exact results. For now enjoy some impressive pictures taken out there…
