The new 78HT Evolution is an exciting and innovative “facelift” evolution of the successful 78 Hardtop and 78 Flybridge models.
Numarine designers applied some subtle aesthetic changes to the original hull. This resulted in a revitalised look whilst still retaining the existing signature design.

The vast saloon, awash with natural light, is complimented by contemporary furniture creating the ultimate entertainment space, with socialising 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 generously appointed en-suite cabins, each outfitted with the finest fixtures and amenities.
Outside, emphasis was 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 a nice view aboard when cruising at speed in absolute comfort and safety.
The new 78HT Evolution hides a “Silent Package” that utilises a system of lithium-ion batteries along with a smart energy management system and an intelligent multi-stage air conditioning system. 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.
This technical solution, along with the efforts by Numarine Engineering to reduce all sources of noise, vibration and harshness, made this 78HT Evolution the quietest series-built yacht in its class today, with 66dB in the lower deck area at cruise speeds.
Measuring in a 18.4 metres LOA, with a 5.15-metre beam, the Numarine Flybridge 60 has the same bold styling common to all the Turkish yard's family line products, with a sportive design that respects the onboard space available to the owner. Ample open areas and brightly lit interiors define Numarine's traditional and characteristic layout.
Flybridge 60 - conceived to have the highest volume in the 60ft category - is drawn by Numarine's designer Can Yalman. He was responsible for the concept, lines and interiors. Umberto Tagliavini is the naval architect and Gurit was in charge of the structural engineering.
The Flybridge 60ft stresses on her light weight and strength, guaranteed by vacuum infusion composite construction and backed by a 10-year structural warranty.
With a 35-knot top speed and a 28-knot cruising speed, the use of less powerful engines and efficient IPS drive system will keep fuel consumption and maintenance costs down and give the Numarine Flybridge 60 a competitive price.
There are three guest cabins with their own washrooms, while close attention was paid to the full beam Owner's suite, with huge windows at water level for a breathtaking view.
