Cheoy Lee 78 Bravo - TAKE A BOW

The new Cheoy Lee 78, introduced at the Miami
Yacht & Brokerage Show, has two personalities.
Dockside, it is a comfortable and inviting yacht
with a well-conceived interior that invites
relaxation. At sea it is a no-nonsense hard-working
vessel that, in the hands of an experienced
captain, has no trouble placating boisterious seas.

INTERIOR DESIGNER SYLVIA BOLTON created the interior layout and décor of Cheoy Lee’s latest launch in the new Bravo series, choosing both trendy and original materials that will appeal to a broad range of tastes. A sturdy but easy-to-open stainless steel and glass door opens onto the salon. A rocking chair adds a touch of whimsy to a décor mixing earth tones, sapele wood in a satin finish and contemporary accent pieces in trendy black. The light-accented bar, located amidships on the yacht’s starboard side, is dressed in leather tiles with glass accents. The round dining table portside features a leather inlay that repeats a recessed ceiling detail with an attractive central light fixture, and a round custom carpet below. Light-color carpeting in the salon gives way to a dark wood sole in the dining area and adjacent corridor, which is wide enough to allow a clear view to the pilothouse’s windows. Forward, a spacious portside open galley with granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, including a side-byside refrigerator and freezer, comes into view. It includes an island, which quickly becomes a good place to congregate for a chat with the captain, the chef or guests seated on the portside banquette. A day head is across the way. The helm station, on the starboard side offers good views forward and on both sides, and console displays are easy to read.
