A successful, long-range motoryacht built by the respected Stephens Marine of California (often described as the Burger yard of the West Coast), this successful cruiser benefited from a multi- million dollar rebuild in 1997/98. BRAVO (ex. Cygnet Explorer; Mania Two) was shipped to McMullen & Wing in New Zealand where she was stripped to bare hull, extended to 100’ (30.5m) (running gear extended accordingly). All superstructure,machinery, interior, carpentry, piping, plumbing etc was renewed under the design and supervision of Naval Architect Bill Tripp. The resultant yacht is a superior, successful, long range design of outstanding quality.

She sailed back to North America on her own bottom.

Full Details


There are very few 100 foot, four stateroom motoryachts with asking prices under 1M that are not afflicted with some major flaws.  That is not the case with BRAVO.  She was built by a high-quality US shipyard (Stevens Marine) and after cruising far and wide as CYGNET EXPLORER, she was re-built by a world-class NZ shipyard (McMullen & Wing), with close supervision by Bill Tripp, Jr.   BRAVO is tri-deck design with comfortable accommodations, large boatdeck, tender and toy garage, convenient access to the water, foredeck crane for additional toys, professional quality pilothouse and long-range.  She is a unique offering.


The Pilot House was entirely renewed in 1997 with careful attention to controls and sightlines. The half wall at the aft end of the Pilot House raises and lowers to provide 360 degree visibility. The pilothouse includes a leather guest bench. The navionics are up to date and extensive (5 flat screens). Freeman wing doors lead out to a Portuguese bridge and full walk around bridge deck.
