The Debut of the Bravo 78 at the Miami International Boatshow.....

Feb 20, 2008

 

The Bravo 78 was the talk of the Show. Many came back to see her for the second, third and fourth time.
 
The moment you step aboard our new Bravo Series 78, you will be greeted by a sumptuous layout from the talented Sylvia Bolton Design Group. Careful material specification and space planning mean the Bravo 78 not only conveys a feeling of enhanced space; there really is more space than other yachts in her class. Sylvia Bolton worked in unison with the naval architect Mike Burvenich, and structural engineers High Modulus to deliver this outstanding effect. Advanced composites were used where the interior design demanded lower profile framing; vaulted are ceilings incorporated between structural overhead members. Just two examples of how close partnership and attention to detail can achieve that little 'extra' felt, but sometimes not immediately visible in superior products.

 

  
The accommodation has a contemporary motif featuring a spacious salon with both formal and informal dining areas, either side of the country-style galley. A great pantry, storage and the marble clad serving bar on the starboard side of the salon, round off the interior of the main deck, and leave you will be wondering if this really is just a 78 footer. Below decks are three large staterooms, including a king-size master and two queen guest staterooms, all with large ensuite heads. Crew accommodation aft is fully appointed and self contained.
There are comfortable and, as by now you have come to expect, roomy, lounge areas on the aft deck and flybridge with generous overhangs and bulwarks providing protection from both sun and sea. Ample side decks are guarded by secure bulwarks and sturdy high grade stainless steel rails.
  
Performance also gains from Cheoy Lee’s uncompromising approach. The development of the Bravo 78 included extensive tank testing to develop a sea kindly and efficient hull, noise and vibration analysis, resin-infused construction, and engineering excellence from one of the world’s longest serving shipyards. Superior comfort and safety at sea were not achieved by chance.
The prototype Bravo 78', powered by a pair of 1,400HP Caterpillar diesels, returned a cruising speed of 23 knots, and a projected range of 700 nautical miles at 21 knots.
