by Miranda Blazeby
Chinese yard Cheoy Lee has delivered a new Brave 78 yacht which has departed on its maiden voyage to the Bahamas.
The 23.8 metre yacht features naval architecture by Mike Buvenich, previously of Tom Fexas Yacht Design, and structural engineering by New Zealand-based High Modulus. The interior design meanwhile was sculpted by the owner and carried out by Seattle-based designer Sylvia Bolton.
The yard said that the yacht boasts “comfort, strength, sea-keeping and efficiency” and features three full-beam staterooms all equipped with en suites.
The semi-custom yacht, which is powered by a pair of CAT C18 Acert 1,136HP, is based on a model available in a number of different main deck layout and décor options. It is equipped with a spacious flybridge and two main living areas on the main deck.
The pilothouse is equipped with a country kitchen, dinette and day head while a formal dining area and bar are located inside in the saloon. There are also plenty of alfresco entertainment spaces, including an open air dining table and wet bar on the aft deck, and outdoor galley and BBQ.
