Price cut on Stephens expedition yacht Bravo
by Malcolm MacLean
The 30.5 metre expedition yacht Bravo, listed for sale by Steve Reoch at All Ocean Yachts, has had a $100,000 price drop.
Built in aluminium by US yard Stephens Marine, Bravo was delivered in 1975. In 1997 she sailed to McMullen & Wing in New Zealand where she was stripped to the bare hull and extended to her current length of 30.5 metres. Her superstructure, machinery, interior, carpentry, piping and plumbing were new in 1997 under the design and supervision of naval architect Bill Tripp. The result was a superior, successful, long-range seagoing yacht.
Further refits in 2008 and 2013/14 included major upgrades to mechanical, electrical and running gear systems plus new interior furniture. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins. The master suite is in the center of the lower deck, and there are two identical cabins with queen sized beds and Pullman berths. Additionally, the on-deck spa and media room can convert into a fourth cabin.
Outdoor spaces include a large flybridge under a full hard top installed in 2013 while the aft bridge deck has all the amenities for al fresco entertaining and dining. Twin MTU diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Bravo is now down from $1,595,000 to $1,495,000
