The naval architecture and engineering firm Bravo Yacht Design Group unveiled the concept of Bravo 75, a 75-meter superyacht inspired by sailing yachts
by Marco Mariani
INSPIRED BY THE SLEEK LINES OF SAILBOATS, THE SUPERYACHT BRAVO 75 was presented by Bravo Yacht Design Group, an architecture and naval engineering firm based in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
«This 75m concept with heliport has a very distinctive profile and stands out for various characteristics of its external appearance», said Tià Simó and Raúl Gonzalo, co-founders and partners of BYD Group. «The aim was to offer a new yacht experience for the owner. Unparalleled comfort from many points of view and a new vision of life on a yacht while sailing or anchored. Its elegant hull is inspired by the profiles of sailing yachts and the curve from the stern to the bow represents the break between the motor yachts style and the sailing yacht style».
Thanks to sliding glass walls, guests can enjoy nature in all weather conditions and feel outdoors even when they are inside a protected area.
«The design focused exclusively on the owner’s visual perception of the surrounding landscape, just as on sailing yachts. An aspect we always work on, so that our customers can feel truly connected with nature». Tià Simó
The project is the result of the work of Tià Simó and Louis Quin who proposed various interesting elements. The side accesses allow you to bring all kinds of water toys in and out of the garage, without changing the view or space. When anchored, the aft deck offers space in the sun and direct access to the sea.
«Another strong point of this concept is its flybridge», commented Simó and Gonzalo. «The space of the jacuzzi is modular and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. Thanks to sliding glass walls, guests can enjoy the view without the unpredictability of the weather». Bravo 75 has a rigorous profile, maximized waterline, and an almost vertical bow. The superstructure is sporty and relatively low to make the superyacht more dynamic and agile.
«The strength of this project is the flybridge, which represents the very heart of the yacht. The space reserved for the jacuzzi is modular and offers a panoramic view of the sea». Raúl Gonzalo
The upper deck and flybridge offer several spaces to enjoy the sun, as does the aft. The arrangement is composed of a master, a VIP cabin, three doubles, and a twin-bedded cabin, for a total of 12 guests. The crew cabins, as well as the captain’s, are located at the front of the boat, in the second lower deck, with separate access to the guest cabins.
The propulsion is hybrid and articulated with three power systems, diesel, hydrogen, and electric with azipods, to make the boat versatile and efficient, but at the same time silent and sustainable. It can be refueled in every corner of the earth, even when there are no electrical or hydrogen stations available.
The crew area is for 21 members. As for the propulsion, the designers chose a triple hybrid solution, with diesel, hydrogen, and electric engines with azipods.
