With everyone cooped up inside for nearly a year, the desire to get out and have some fun with family has never been stronger. In fact, with vacation travel sharply declining and so much time being spent near home, boat sales have surged nationwide this year, according to a recent article published by Fox News.
Since people are trying to play it safer these days and avoiding long-distance travel, families and friends are looking to have some fun on the water and vacation a little closer to home. Fortunately for Utahns, one of the most beautiful and unique destination lakes in the world is here in our backyard: Lake Powell.
Have you ever been? If not, you certainly should. Imagine what exploring a lake on the surface of Mars would be like. With its soft sandy beaches, massive red monoliths, and seemingly endless slot canyons to explore, Lake Powell is the perfect place for a houseboat vacation.
If you are looking for a new vacation spot a little closer to home that your family and friends are sure to love, try a luxury lake yacht on Lake Powell.
Here are seven reasons to consider a Bravada Yacht for your next Lake Powell vacation.
World-class design and innovation
One thing is for sure: Once you step foot on a yacht from Bravada, you'll never want to leave.
In 2017, new owners took over Bravada and focused squarely on making the best built, most innovative and creative luxury lake yachts in America. Bravada's new V-series went from concept to completion in under 2 years and it's already making some serious waves in the houseboat industry.
Essentially, if you can dream it, Bravada can build it. Want a movie theater on your yacht? No problem. Nine-foot ceilings? Oh, that's standard. Massive floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the views? Those are included, too.
Given Bravada's relentless dedication to reinventing the houseboat industry, their modern designs are some of the most creative and innovative in the world. Their goals are big and their vision is refreshing.
Cutting-edge building materials
Unlike most houseboat companies, Bravada doesn't construct its boats with standard wooden 2x4 framing and drywall, which don't hold up well over time. Instead, the core is all structural-lightweight steel, with walls that allow for sound dampening that is twice as quiet as what you find in a home—all completed with energy-efficient insulation.
And not only are the yachts energy-efficient and nearly soundproof, but they're also safe. Bravada Yachts are Class A1 Fire Rated due to the cutting-edge materials used to construct them.
Mobility and versatility
Whether you're in it for the extreme watersports or the serene relaxation, Bravada's are equipped with powerful Volvo Diesel engines to get you around so you are free to explore anytime and anywhere your heart desires. According to the National Parks Service, Lake Powell has nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline, so you're sure to never run out of red sandy beaches or long winding slot canyons.
One of the more stressful thoughts usually associated with boating is the maintenance, management and upkeep involved. If maintenance isn't really your cup of tea, ownership in a Bravada Yacht makes it easy on you: one maintenance fee, once a year. You pay a flat fee, and the maintenance, slip fees and insurance are all covered for the year. Simple.
Plenty of room for family and friends
Planning a fun getaway with a large family or a lot of friends can be difficult.
Thankfully, no matter the size of the Bravada yacht you choose, there will be at least five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two cuddy cabins. In fact, the largest of the available yachts offer nine bedrooms and over 7,000-square feet.
In other words, if you're looking for a luxurious vacation home where everyone will have ample space to spread out, a Bravada Yacht on Lake Powell is unbeatable.
Fun amenities and features
Another attractive aspect of exploring Lake Powell on a Bravada is the staggering amount of fun and luxurious amenities the Bravada Yachts offer. Some of the standard features Bravada offers are: a bow thruster, underwater LED lights, waterslides, multi-zone sound systems, custom made outdoor furniture, quartz and Dekton countertops, movie theaters, fire pits, hot tubs, custom day-bed seating, lounge areas, central air, and more. Bravada Yachts are well stocked, have great layouts and are built to entertain your family and friends.
Affordable with shared ownership costs
Bravada's Factory Direct Fractional Ownership Program is similar to a traditional time-share program, but instead of owning "time" on someone else's boat, you and your partners actually own the boat. Since the cost of ownership is divided among the partners and since there are no "middlemen" in the sales process, Bravada's Factory Direct Shares are affordable.
Bravada Yachts is quickly becoming the leader in luxury lake living. See how they can be a good fit for your next Lake Powell trip by visiting their website.
