The Numarine 78 HTS features a full-beam owners cabin with wardrobe, open plan bathroom, walk-in shower, twin basins and a separate rest room. Guests can sleep in three cabins with en-suite bathrooms.
A large lounge area can be found on the bow, on the flybridge and aft on the main deck.
The yacht will have a smart energy management system with a lithium-ion battery pack to reduce running a generator for air condition and all other conveniences to enjoy a silent day at anchor. The system needs just short generator times to spend also the night in air-conditioned cabins.
Numarine Engineering had also an eye on noise, vibration, and harshness. The yacht has a background noise of 66 db on the lower deck.
Numarine Sales & Marketing Director Antonio Caviglia stated:
“Hull no.1 of our new 78HTS was sold thanks to the teamwork of the Numarine Dealer Network. The Client is from Hong Kong and Asia Marine was instrumental in convincing him to choose Numarine, but the Yacht will be utilized in the USA, so the Client had to be comfortable with Numarine USA as well for the After-Sales assistance. This special yacht will incorporate some significant customizations that we will divulge when we launch her in late Summer of 2018.”
Two MAN V8 engines with 1200 HP will be in the standard version. The client of hull number one decided to take the option of two MAN V12 engines. With that option, the yacht will reach a maximum speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 27 knots.
The new 78HTS is fitted with standard twin MAN V8 1200 hp, but hull no.1 will have the more powerful twin MAN V-12 1550 hp that will allow approximately 37knots max speed and 27 knots cruise. The range is up to 400 nautical miles. With the 5000-liter fuel tank, a range of 400 nautical miles is possible.
The delivery of hull number one is scheduled for summer 2018 to a Hong-Kong client who will drive in U.S. waters.
