The S-78: It all started here
She may no longer be the largest Storm yacht available but the S-78 remains the flagship of our fleet and the inspiration for all that has followed. As the first Storm concept to be unveiled she is a bold statement of intent in every way.
Suitable for two experienced sailors/owners, the S-78 also has room for crew members should you wish to let others take the helm.
This all-aluminium fast displacement motoryacht has all the assets that brought the Storm brand to the world’s attention:
- Speed: The S-78 can reach 22 knots thanks to her innovative pod drive technology (shaft drive is an option)
- Her patented FDHF hull shape guarantees excellent sailing characteristics and significant fuel savings
- A distinctive exterior profile
- Large interior volume that optimises comfort
- The latest technologies
- Dutch standards of finishing and detail
- A wealth of customisation options inside and out, incl. propulsion
Individual Design Service
Every yacht in the STORM series benefits from an impressive design, pure craftsmanship, multiple innovations and considerable attention to detail. A wide selection of colours, wood types, finishes, carpets and upholstery is available to individualise each yacht to a high degree. And if you need even more choice, you can use our Individual Design Service to totally customise your interior.
With a truly unlimited choice of materials and finishing styles, your bespoke interior will be designed in conjunction with Omega Architects. The result will be a unique STORM yacht that totally reflects the taste, lifestyle, preferences and personality of her owners.
And there is more. You can take customisation to an even higher level by working with your architect on a distinctive layout. Perhaps you’d like two larger suites, or an extra cabin or a different location for the galley. With the Individual Design Service the choice is truly yours.
The S-78 has been designed with ample space to accommodate six adults. A fine example is the impressive superyacht-style lounge that is much larger in both beam and length than most yachts of this size. The same goes for the flybridge, which also provides a superb al fresco environment for sunbathing, dining or raising a glass to another top day of cruising.
As with every Storm yacht, you can choose your own layout as well as the design and decorative style. We recommend doing so with Frank Laupman but you can bring in your own interior designer if you prefer.
As a rule, we recommend fitting Volvo IPS propulsion onboard the S-78. This new propulsion system is suitable for large yachts powered by engines up to 900 hp and comprises a standard transmission mounted to a steerable pod unit with twin, counter-rotating propellers.
The superior efficiency of the Volvo IPS compared to traditional propulsion systems results in an increased cruising speed of up to 15% with the same installed power. This improved performance is accompanied by up to 20% reduction in fuel consumption.
If shaft drive propulsion is your preference, you can have Caterpillar engines with V-drive shaft propulsion installed on your Storm S-78. Of course, the choice for an engine of a different make is possible. As always we would be delighted to discuss the options with you.
