The naval architecture and engineering firm Bravo Yacht Design Group (BYD) shared the first images and first sketches of their latest superyacht concept, Bravo 75. Inspired by sailing yachts, the 75 meters is very different from other similar projects in this range.
Based in Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca, BYD Group offers a complete naval design and architecture service for the construction of new sailing and motor yachts and refits, working in collaboration with yacht builders or directly with yacht owners themselves.
“This 75-meter heliport concept has a very special profile and is distinguished by various characteristics of its external appearance,” said Tià Simó and Raúl Gonzalo, co-founders and partners of BYD Group. “The goal is to offer a new yacht experience to the owner. Unparalleled comfort in many ways and a new vision of life on board while sailing or anchoring. Its elegant hull is inspired by the profiles of sailing yachts and the curve from stern to bow represents the break between the style of motor yachts and sailing yachts”.
Designed by Tià Simó and Louis Quin, the design is timeless and sophisticated. The side entrances allow to bring in and out of the garage all kinds of toys, without altering the view and space. The aft deck offers, once at anchor, space for the sun and direct access to the sea.
“Another strong point of the concept is the flybridge”, commented Simó and Gonzalo. “The space of the whirlpool is modular and offers a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. Thanks to the sliding glass walls, guests can enjoy the view without the unpredictable weather conditions”.
Bravo 75 has a rigorous profile, a maximized waterline and an almost vertical bow. The superstructure is sporty and relatively low to make the superyacht more dynamic and agile. On the upper deck and flybridge there is plenty of space to enjoy the sun, as well as the stern.
The layout consists of a master cabin, a VIP cabin, three doubles, and a twin cabin, for a total of 12 guests. As for the crew cabins, as well as the captain’s cabin, they are located in the front part of the boat, on the second lower deck, with separate access to the guest cabins. The crew area is for 21 members.
As far as propulsion is concerned, the designers’ concept consists of a triple hybrid solution, with diesel, hydrogen, and electric engines with Azipod. In addition, the megayacht will have the possibility to refuel in any part of the world, in case electric power or hydrogen is not available.
