Flybridge motor yachts can be distinguished from other types of motor yachts by their tall upper decks, outfitted with an elevated helm station so high up off the water that you’ll feel like you’re flying when you run the boat from up top. While all the different styles of motor yachts have their own set of advantages, having that flybridge is a huge perk. Yes, of course it’s a ton of fun to run the boat from up there. But beyond that an elevated steering position also enhances visibility and makes certain tasks, like docking, far easier. Plus, putting a flybridge atop a motor yacht creates an additional social area and boosts the overall amount of space at your disposal.
Many flybridge motor yachts have extensive accommodations on the bridge. Refrigerators and ice makers, stereo systems, and loungers are all common fare. Some even have electric grills and dining areas sitting far above the waterline. And, at what cost? Some feel that adding a flybridge disturbs a boat’s sleek looks and it can in some cases raise a boat’s center of gravity. But most people feel that these are small prices to pay for all the expanded opportunity a flying bridge provides.
Aside from the bridge itself, there’s little that distinguishes a flybridge motor yacht from motor yachts of other types. In fact, in many cases a boatbuilder will offer an express and a flybridge model which are essentially they very same boat excepting the presence or absence of the flybridge. So the next time you look at a motor yacht find out if there are versions both with and without a flybridge. Then tour each boat, and decide for yourself which you like the most. We can say one thing for sure: if you like the feeling of wind in your hair, sun on your face, and the smell of a salt breeze, there’s a good chance a flybridge motor yacht lays in your future.
