Numarine 78HT Evolution Debuts at Cannes
A little nip-and-tuck never hurts when creating a reimagined model based on previous designs.
They may be a few subtle changes but they are change nonetheless for the Numarine 78HT Evolution superyacht. Bridging the designs of both the 78 Hardtop and the 78 Flybridge models, the 23-meter superyacht made its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2016. The refreshing update manages to keep the signature design of the previous two models while adding new elements to cater to a wider audience.
Aesthetically the 78HT Evolution is designed in a way that allows for a generous amount of natural light, thanks to the large glass panels. This helps to showcase the entertainment area where guests can lounge on furniture that lends the space an air of modernity.
Away from the enclosed space is a sun-pad where one can languish. With ultra-wide lounge seats, the pad is an ideal location to park yourself as the superyacht travels at cruising speed.
Below deck, the superyacht has three guest accommodation cabins and an owner’s cabin. Each en-suite guest cabin is complete with luxurious fixtures and fittings. Stretching the full width of the 78HT Evolution, the owner’s cabin provides ample room for a wardrobe and an en-suite with walk-in-shower as well as twin basins.
While the aesthetic changes stand out when compared with the other two models, it is what lies hidden beneath the surface that truly makes a difference. A new “Silent Package” system of lithium-ion batteries help to power a smart energy management system and an intelligent multi-stage air conditioning system. This provides enough energy for the superyacht to run throughout the day with a short charge at midday while also ensuring that there is little disturbance within the cabins. By reducing the noise levels on board, the Numarine 78HT Evolution has now set a new benchmark for others in terms of comfort on board.
