After launching the wildly popular 78 Hardtop and 78 Flybridge models, Numarine is treating yacht enthusiasts to an attractive facelift of the successful 78s. The Numarine 78 Evolution builds on the sleek design of previous models, taking the aesthetics to new heights while preserving the impeccable performance levels and countless amenities.
According to company owner and CEO Ömer Malaz, Numarine initially considered replacing the 78s with a new model. However, after each proposal for a replacement at this particular size, Malaz reported that Numarine “confirmed [their] initial instinct that the existing hulls and configurations did everything perfectly as they were!” The Numarine design team subsequently focused on some key aesthetic changes in order to take the existing 78 models to an unmatched level of cutting edge elegance. A quick tour of the boat reveals that Can Yalman and his team of designers did not disappoint.
The Numarine 78 Evolution’s nearly 80 feet of length, along with a 19 foot beam, allow for a palatial interior. The boat can comfortably sleep eight guests, with three crew. A kingsize bed, state-of-the-art BOSE entertainment system and full length windows distinguish the impressive master stateroom. The saloon boasts its own comprehensive entertainment system alongside an enormous flat screen TV. The upper deck and various staterooms are marked by extraordinary attention to detail and layers of elegant design work. Air conditioning is featured throughout the boat, and integrated entertainment and communication systems ensure that you are never too far away from what you need. Finally, with a top speed of 32 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots, the Numarine 78 Evolution does not disappoint when it comes to performance.
Production of the Numarine 78 Evolution begins in September, with the first boats rolling out in February 2015. Founded by Ömer Malaz, Numarine is a celebrated yacht builder based in Istanbul, with a complementary UK-based division known as Numarine International. The company has a 35,000 square meter base of operations, which can produce up to 50 yachts and can handle boat lengths of up to 130 feet. Led by the charismatic Malaz, Numarine has quickly made a name for themselves in a crowded field of yacht production. Their signature yachts are known for an unmatched marriage of performance, craftsmanship and design. Repeatedly seizing on the latest technological advancements in boat design, it is no wonder that Numarine is leading the way in the production of cutting edge yachts.
