A one-piece hull with its bulkheads, seamless Italian woodwork, top-of-the-range equipment from premium brands.

The low profile pilothouse, off-centre companionway, large cockpit with twin wheels, twin rudders, plumb stem, and powerful hull with chine all reflect the Phillipe Briand and CNB heritage. Built with exacting process and tolerances renowned of Solaris, the 78 is configured for owners who would like to sail by themselves or with a professional crew.
