About Flybridge Motor Yachts
What is an Flybridge Yacht?
A flybridge – or occasionally flying bridge – yacht is a vessel with an upper helm station atop the superstructure. Some areas can be just large enough for the control station, while others offer open deck space that can be used for entertaining and sunbathing. Some flybridges are completely open, but may have a bimini top, while others may be partially or fully enclosed. The extra living space outside is one advantage to the flybridge design and the elevated location offers an amazing vantage point and great visibility all round, plus it can make docking easier. Many sportfishing vessels make use of the flybridge area for better maneuvering during fishing. Vessels with flybridges range in size from approximately 30 feet on up to superyachts.
What is an Flybridge Yacht Made of (Construction Material/Hull Design)?
A flybridge yacht can be made from fiberglass, composites, steel, aluminum, or wood. Since flybridge’s are not constrained to one kind of motor yacht, it’s possible for the flybridge to appear on a multitude of vessels with different hull configurations. A fishing vessel could have hulls ranging from displacement to the deep-V planing hull, and other motor yachts, like a superyacht, may have either a displacement or a semi-displacement hull.
Why You Should Buy an Flybridge Yacht
You should buy a flybridge yacht if you enjoy feeling the wind on your face as you watch the world go by from your raised position on the flybridge. Sure, there’s the convenience of having a second helm station and the perks of the extra space on the flybridge deck, but maybe it’s the extra storage for your water toys that’s the cherry on the sundae – what better way to enjoy your fun in the sun than to carry along those toys that expand your playtime and relaxation possibilities. The best part is that you don’t have to choose just one – the flybridge has tons of options for making the most of your time in the sun.
