Well-Thought-Out Details &
Cheoy Lee has been building boats since the 1950s, and the Bravo 72 clearly benefits from that expertise, displaying a high level of engineering and rigging.

Grady White Express 370:
Bluewater Special Ready for
The Grady-White Express 370 was designed with offshore fishing in mind, and had a top speed in our test of 48.3 mph with triple 300-hp outboards. She’ll get to bluewater in no time. She cruises at 26.2-mph, and with an optimal cruise range of 313 miles, she’ll be able to troll all day, and get back with fuel to spare. For overnights, the cabin area has two berths, a galley, a full head with walk-in shower, convertible dining space (allowing you to sleep six comfortably) and air conditioning — all standard.

Prestige Yachts Factory Visit:
Prestige Yachts use vacuum-bagged, resin-infused hulls and decks that are cored with end-grain balsa, creating maximum strength with minimal weight. Computerized machining helps make the finishing process faster, more accurate, and cost-efficient. The entire process results in a strong, lightweight hull that can be built more rapidly than traditional layup and machining allows, and that can be use smaller, more fuel-efficient engines.
