FPB 78

A series of 3 x FPB 78s were built, beginning with #1 COCHISE which was commissioned for Steve and Linda Dashew. She was launched in June 2016. After completing trials in New Zealand she steamed across the Pacific and through the Panama Canal to Panama. This was an extraordinary voyage for a new yacht to take and she performed immaculately with no fuss. She was joined by 2 x sisters who have also cruised extensively including a cruise in company to Antarctica in 2019.

#2 is coded to MCA Category 0. All FPBs were built with the standard in mind.

At 86 feet overall, they can be managed by a couple, but for longer voyages owners prefer to take advantage of their ample accommodation to take crew with them. There is plenty of volume for separate crew accommodation aft of the engine room which is the width of the yacht.

Forward of this are 2 generous double cabins each with ensuite heads. A lower deck corridor then provides access to a lower deck office and large owners’ stateroom with a large forward lazarette beyond which can also be used to create a further double berth cabin with en-suite and still have room enough for storage forward of this.

The great room and basement are large and they have a generous aft deck with barbeque, room for the dinghies and long bathing platform. The matrix deck offers seating aft and a comprehensive control centre with excellent vision forward.

The FPB 78 will surf easily achieving consistent speeds of over 20 knots and like her sisters offers recovery from capsize, drying out capability and enormous range.

The insulation materials specified and used and plate thickness make these yachts suitable for extensive use in the ice and their heating systems are designed to make navigating cold waters comfortable. They also have tropical air conditioning and custom designed ventilation for comfortable use in the tropics

Their solar array enables them to have good levels of endurance providing enough power to power air conditioning and refrigeration in the tropics without generator use.

All major systems on the FPB 78 are duplicated for reliable operation and they carry a very full inventory of spares.
