Flybridge yacht to get the Volvo Penta treatment

A Hong Kong based yacht builder has chosen to equip its latest flybridge with a high-performance Volvo Penta propulsion system.

Cheoy Lee will offer its Bravo 72 yacht with Volvo Penta’s highest performance unit, D13-IPS1350, which came onto the market earlier this year.

“We chose Volvo Penta IPS in the first place because of its excellent performance, high power-to-weight ratio, and low emissions, noise and vibrations,” said But-Yang Lo, vice president of Cheoy Lee Shipyards, North America.

“But since the launch of the new Volvo Penta IPS package, we decided to take advantage of the higher output it offers so that our customers can get the best possible performance with this boat.”

The D13-IPS1350 should give the yacht top-end performance with the ability to reach over 30 knots.

Bravo has fuel capacity of 1,060 USG and a full-load displacement of 94,000 lbs. It is made from fiberglass, aluminium and steel, conceived by naval architect, Howard Apollonio.

It has a luxuriously-designed interior, with four state-rooms created by Sylvia Bolton.

Volvo Penta’s D13-IPS1350 is an integrated package that matches the company’s latest and strongest D13 engine with an upgraded IPS pod drive.

Cheoy Lee has its headquarters in Hong Kong, with shipyards in mainland China and the USA, serving an international roster of clients.
