Numarine, double debut at Cannes Yachting Festival

The new 78HT Evolution is an innovative “facelift” evolution of the successful 78 Hardtop and 78 Flybridge models.

Numarine, double debut at Cannes Yachting Festival

Numarine designers with applying some subtle aesthetic changes to the original hull have resulted in a completely revitalized look whilst still retaining the existing “signature” design.

The vast saloon, awash with natural light thanks to oversized glazing above and around, is complimented by contemporary furniture creating the ultimate entertainment space, with socializing being at the heart of the design.

The full width owner's cabin features a unique design and encompasses plentiful wardrobe space, walk in shower, separate head and twin basins.

Guest accommodation comprises of three very generously appointed en-suite cabins, each outfitted with the finest fixtures and amenities.

Outside, emphasis has been given to relaxation space with an ingenious sun-pad configuration on the bow that provides a place in the sun for any number of guests. A forward facing ultra-wide lounge seat offers the best view aboard when cruising at speed in absolute comfort and safety.

But not all changes are aesthetic: the new 78HT Evolution hides a new “Silent Package” that utilizes a system of lithium-ion batteries along with a smart energy management system and an intelligent multi-stage air conditioning system. In simple terms this allows the Owner to sit at anchor the entire day and run all electrical systems including air conditioning, audio/video, appliances, etc. with the generator running only for a short charge at midday – result: complete silence while enjoying the sea. More importantly, after a short charge in the evening before going to bed, the Owner and his guests will be able to sleep in cool cabins without any noise except perhaps that of their peaceful snoring. This technical solution, along with the ever improving efforts by Numarine Engineering to reduce all sources of noise, vibration and harshness, has made this 78HT Evolution a new benchmark for comfort on board, both in navigation, with luxury car noise levels, and when moored or anchored. Probably the quietest series-built yacht in its class today, with 66dB in the lower deck area at cruise speeds.
