Full Details

Step Aboard

The 78 Motor Yacht offers options of an enclosed or open bridge deck and includes luxurious accommodation for up to 10 adults in four luxurious staterooms and crew quarters.

The first element guests at the exclusive preview noticed was the teak-laid swim platform. It was developed to provide a three-step design that spans the full width of the platform and can be lowered into the water to make access simple both for swimming and launching water sports equipment. A swim ladder is incorporated into the side of the platform.

Two doors are built into the transom. A watertight door on the starboard side provides access to the full-height engine room and crew quarters. A larger door on the port side lifts to reveal a garage for water sports, diving and fishing equipment. A shower is built into the underside of the door.

Stepping up from the swim platform, the semi-enclosed saloon deck, covered entirely by the bridge deck overhang, features teak decking, and includes plush lounges across the transom, and an L-shape lounge in the starboard fore quarter around a fold-out teak dining table and comprehensive barbecue center to port. Teak deck chairs can be added around the dining table to accommodate up to eight guests. A screen across the transom can be lowered for privacy and protection from weather.

This deck includes wing doors on either side of the coaming that can be opened for entry or exit to a fixed dock.

Elegant interior

An electric sliding door opens to reveal the interior of the vast saloon deck with its large U-shape galley immediately to starboard, positioned equally to serve guests on the aft deck or in the saloon. A large window slides down electrically to open the galley to guests on the deck aft.

The galley features Caesarstone benchtops that display a three-burner induction hob and twin underslung stainless-steel sinks.

This space also includes twin ovens, a dishwasher, a pair of full-height refrigerators and ample storage drawers and cupboards. Ceasarstone is also utilised on benchtops for the saloon and bridge wet bars.

Superbly varnished, finely grain-matched high-gloss teak features throughout the interior was selected for this yacht.

One of the key design features of the 78 Motor Yacht is flush surfaces throughout the interior, including concealed latches on drawers and cupboards. Paneling is utilized on fridge and icemaker doors to blend with the interior decor.

Premium fabrics and finishes are utilized extensively throughout the interior and owners personalize their yacht from the very beginning of their build, deciding on furniture placement, colors and fabrics and how they wish to best utilize the many spaces on board.

The generous saloon space on this yacht features two premium comfort lounges; a large L-shape lounge to starboard and a two-seat lounge along the port side aft of a comprehensive wet bar. An ottoman is placed over an elegant rug at the center of this space.

Forward on the starboard side, a watertight door leads to the side deck and, from there, to the entertainer’s foredeck. This highly versatile space offers a number of entertaining layouts and a Euro sun awning with the option to carry a tender or jet ski and davit.

The Command Center

An internal timber staircase leads from the port side of the main saloon to the bridge deck with its super-yacht like dash accommodating four large navigation screens. The leather captain’s chair is on the yacht’s centerline with companion chairs on either side. Immediately to starboard of the captain is an extended console with engine controls. Aft is a leather lounge and ottoman and entertainment unit. An electrically operated double sliding and stacking glass door opens up to connect the bridge interior and exterior as one space and leading to the deck with a bar including twin high seats, a U-shape lounge and teak fold-out dining table. The optional day head is in the starboard forward quarter of this space. The coaming on this deck includes port and starboard joysticks for slow-speed maneuvering.

Luxurious accommodation deck

An elegant, curved timber staircase from the forward end of the main saloon leads to the accommodation deck with its four luxurious staterooms and three bathrooms. The full-beam Master suite amidships is bathed with natural light from extended hull windows. It provides an electrically adjustable king-size bed and extended his-and-hers en-suite bathroom. A striking timber feature adorns the aft wall. The VIP guest stateroom, fitted with a queen double bed boats hull windows and twin overhead hatches, is forward with an en-suite bathroom. The port stateroom offers twin beds that can slide together to form a double at the touch of a button. An option for this stateroom is a double bed. A third bathroom is the ensuite for this stateroom and can act as a day head. The starboard stateroom includes two adult single cross-over berths.

This magnificent new motor yacht is powered by twin MAN 2000 turbo diesel engines delivering 2,000hp (1,471kW) each through Twin Disc Quickshift gearboxes. She includes Twin Disc’s Express Joystick System with the integrated station-hold Express Positioning System.
