FUN IS THE GREATEST LUXURY OF ALL: The Tech­ni­cally Stun­ning Bravo 72

Power & Motor Yacht - - EXPOSURE -

Rarely does some­one break new ground. Rarely does some­one go where no one has gone be­fore. The new Bravo 72 does just that.

In the past ten years, Volvo has de­liv­ered more than 20,000 IPS drives glob­ally. They are not lim­ited to plea­sure craft, more than a quar­ter of rugged off­shore wind farm ves­sels world­wide for ex­am­ple are pow­ered by Volvo IPS. In this same time frame Cheoy Lee has been ac­tive in the con­struc­tion of az­imuth stern drive tug boats us­ing a sim­i­lar tech­nol­ogy. More than one hun­dred of these pow­er­ful ves­sels up­wards of 5,000 horse­power and 70 tons pull are now work­ing the globe, from the Panama Canal, to the min­ing ports in Aus­tralia, Sin­ga­pore, New Zealand (see insert), Europe, Asia and South Amer­ica. Cheoy Lee is more than f amil­iar with pod drives and has now adapted them to t heir mo­tor yacht l i ne.

It is this abil­ity to uti­lize the best of proven tech­nolo­gies. And it is not lim­ited to Volvo and Cheoy Lee. De­signer Howard Apol­lo­nio used a proven hull, one that takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the abil­ity of Volvo’s IPS in op­ti­miza­tion its abil­i­ties. Com­pos­ite en­gi­neer­ing spe­cial­ists Gu­rit spent count­less hours in op­ti­miz­ing a struc­tural ar­range­ment that is strong, and backed by Cheoy Lee’s ten year struc­tural war­ranty. In­te­rior de­signer Sylvia Bolton in­stalled a panoramic in­te­rior. Avail­able TNT plat­form, zero speed sta­bi­liz­ers, car­bon fiber sun shades, Sea­keeper gyro, fuel pol­ish­ing sys­tems and more round out an ex­ten­sive list of equip­ment de­signed around boat­ing fun, whether at an­chor or un­der­way.

Tech­nol­ogy is only good if it is backed up by the abil­ity to be main­tained. With every Volvo Penta en­gine comes one of the wide st ser­vice dealer net­work in the in­dus­try. The net­work of ser­vice deal­ers is present in more than 130 coun­tries. As a Volvo Penta owner, you are never far from qual­i­fied ser­vice. And once you see the en­gine room, the im­pres­sion that Cheoy Lee builds its ves­sels right would not be missed, for com­po­nents are ser­vice able. The abil­ity to ser­vice all com­po­nents is backed up by CheoyLee’ s two year Lim­ited War­ranty. That com­bined with CheoyLee’ s 10 year struc­tural hull war­ranty guar­an­tees to keep FUN in yachting f or years to come.
