An extra-large tournament flybridge offers 360 degree visibility, fore and aft control stations, a wet bar, a barbecue and spacious seating for guests. The flybridge also sports a hardtop, and an optional full enclosure protects the controls. Sportfishing amenities are equally impressive. The 78s large aft fishing cockpit features an integral dual bait tank system and two built-in tackle centers. Just above and forward of the cockpit, a secondary observation/entertainment cockpit is provided on the lanai deck. This arrangement allows guests to stay close to the fishing action, if they don’t want to participate — yet, allows plenty of room in the cockpit for working large game fish. Above the hardtop, a sportfishing tower offers the ultimate in control and visibility. Second and third stations are located fore and aft on the flybridge, and the fourth control station is located on the lanai deck, a few steps from the cockpit.
The 78 delivers a smooth, dry ride. It trims perfectly, offers exceptional stability, due to the design’s low center of gravity and Naiad stabilizers .
