Tolleson’s Bravada Yachts launches revolutionary houseboat
Tolleson-based Bravada Yachts announced the launch of its newest and most aggressively designed luxury houseboat to date. This 80-foot custom-built wide-bodied lake yacht named “Invictus” debuted at Lake Powell on December 1 and it’s taking the houseboat industry by storm. The two-and-a-half level, 3,200-square-foot, luxury watercraft valued at about $2 million boasts five staterooms, two bathrooms, two kitchens, seven televisions, custom outdoor furniture, a firepit and a waterslide.
Constructed without using wood, drywall or standard houseboat systems, Bravada has chosen innovative alternatives, optimized for your family’s safety. These include Class A1 Fire-rated raw materials, with superior water/mold/mildew resistance, unmatched soundproofing, and increased energy efficiency.
The artistry and development process from concept to completion took under two years with modern interiors and bespoke exteriors all designed and built by Bravada Yacht’s elite research and development team. Bravada Yachts has set a new standard in the industry with Invictus, introducing fresh ideas from the first weld to the final touch.
Bravada Yachts is the only luxury houseboat brand with a team consisting of world-class fabricators, master engineers from various disciplines, designers from the ocean yacht world and top-notch industry experts leveling up the game including President Robert Gutierrez, CEO Aaron Browning and Vice President of Operations, Mia Gutierrez. The team’s combined expertise has allowed for the creation of a completely revolutionized lake yachting experience.
“The houseboat industry has been stagnant for decades, ‘Invictus’ represents the first glimpse into the future of houseboating and the direction we are laser focused on leading the industry towards” said Aaron Browning, CEO of Bravada Yachts. “There is a reason houseboats are not built with curves – the reason is because it’s hard. We at Bravada Yachts will never shy away from doing hard things or taking the uncharted course. We embrace the challenges and we’re excited to see just how far we can push the envelope in the houseboat industry.”
Bravada has streamlined production, invested in cutting-edge technology and appointed fresh, bright minds to build new luxury houseboats that are stronger, lighter, faster, and more fuel efficient than ever. Designed by award-winning watercraft alchemist, J. David Weiss, the new Atlas V-Series takes center stage with its sleek lines and high-end features that infuse the ocean yacht world into the lake yachting experience.
The new Atlas V-Series, constructed from structural steel, prides itself on a precise juxtaposition of functionality and stylish aesthetic appeal with two-and-a-half levels and the coveted “reverse layout,” where the stern end of the boat completely opens up with a massive sliding glass door. Say goodbye to square, chrome railings and boxy bases, Invictus features sophisticated lines and practical solutions like the custom bar housing audio components and television, which rises to the entertainment occasion. Combining luxury with comfort, Invictus has key features including massive “aquarium” style windows, as well as custom sliding and helm doors by Western Windows Systems, which provide unmatched views and a distinctive look.
The main deck is complete with a salon accommodated with a top-of-the-line audiovisual system, designer steam fireplace, and a satellite television. Sleeping up to 14 guests, the luxury lake yacht offers five staterooms, two lower cuddy cabins, and two bathrooms with custom tiled showers, LED mirrors, and marbled quartz countertops. The completely stocked full-sized kitchen comes equipped with quartz countertops and stainless steel Samsung appliances. The carefully-designed helm offers a comfortable captain’s chair and multiple camera displays to assist overall visibility.
Upper deck features amenities such as an outdoor kitchen, featuring stainless steel cabinets, designer backsplash and grill by RH Peterson, surrounded by custom Dekton countertops, a unique synthetic stone that beautifully defies the elements, a crushed glass-lined fire pit with custom modern daybed seating made with powder-coated steel framing and custom Sunbrella upholstery, and a 15-foot rear waterslide to cool off in a hurry.
Invictus maximizes fuel efficiency with the power and torque needed to maneuver this massive 70-ton vessel. It is one of the only houseboats on the market to use Volvo Diesel engines with the Volvo Penta Outdrives and Bow Thruster. Owners will enjoy an increased top speed, a smooth ride, and near-silent cruising.
Boating and anchoring lessons are just one of the many perks new Bravada owners will enjoy.
Every Bravada Yacht is built in the USA at the Bravada Yachts factory in Tolleson, Arizona. Atlas V-Series models are currently available for single owner or fractional owner purchases.
