Actually the yacht Bravo Eugenia is not yet named, as she is still known as Project Bravo or by her Oceanco project number Y718. But we were told she will be named Eugenia at her christening. (Update we saw a photo disclosing her name: Bravo Eugenia)
The 109 meter (358 ft) yacht is designed by Nuvolari Lenard, while Reymond Langton Design is responsible for her interior.
She will probably be able to accommodate 14 guests and a crew of at least 22. We heard she is powered by MTU engines.
Y718 is one of the largest yachts built in the Netherlands, behind Feadship’s Anna and the Oceanco Jubilee.
