November 2017 News Web Exclusive

Arizona-based Bravada Yachts is back and stronger than ever! With new owners and a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, the iconic yacht builders are making waves again in the industry with their innovative designs and bold vision to serve the boating community with quality, performance and attainable luxury.

In fact, the response from buyers has been so overwhelming, the new owners are already on track to have their best ever year for sales.

According to loyal client, Sara Ball Merrill, "My family and friends have been avid Lake Powell and houseboating enthusiasts for years, we’ve considered owning a new boat, but it wasn't until we were introduced to Aaron and Andrew at Bravada Yachts that we felt it was time to invest in a new boat for our business and our family. These guys went above and beyond for us. Our daughter was recently diagnosed with a terrible illness and when Aaron and Andrew found out they invited our family and our daughter’s friends to come out on the lake on one of their boats. We now feel like family. We are so happy with the sleek new designs and custom interiors they’re doing and were excited to be on our new 75 ft. Bravada GT next summer!”

Aaron Browning, the company’s new CEO, has been a Bravada Yacht owner and lake enthusiast for years. “Our motto is ‘Be Bold.’ Our vision is to create lake experiences that exceed the expectations and desires of every family member. We’re boaters at heart and want to serve and elevate the boating community with next level experiences, bold new designs and attainable luxury.”

Bravada Yachts was acquired in June 2017 and recently moved into a brand new state-of-the-art facility in Tolleson, Arizona. With 30 employees, the company plans to expand to 75 employees by next summer. “We are seeing rapid growth,” says Vice President, Andrew Marshall, “There’s really nothing quite like this product. We are upgrading the traditional country-club mentality and evolving it onto the lake. While the Bravada Yachts community is large and has incredibly interesting boat owners, we feel the best memories are the magical connections shared with friends and loved ones out on the water in paradise. It’s incredible to serve our customers with this type of opportunity."

One way Bravada Yachts offers attainable luxury is by offering factory direct shares on a “multi-owner boat”. They’ll even find your boat partners for you. By splitting the overall costs between a small handful of owners, this offsets the cost and lessens the barrier of entry to owning a custom Lake Yacht. What a great way to have a high end luxury experience for less than cost of a cheap condo. “Heading down to Lake Powell a couple weeks a year with the entire family is a dream vacation in itself,” said Browning. “But to have these vacations every summer while spending less renting a houseboat makes it a smart play as well. This is why we talk so much about attainable luxury. There is nothing quite like it”.

COO, Robert Gutierrez has big plans for moving Bravada Yachts forward from a manufacturing standpoint. "We have a leadership policy to drive innovation and empower our staff. We love showing up to work and seeing so many smiling faces. Just call our number and chat with our office manager, Cindy, she will be sure to express our wonderful new energy. We intend to consistently drive the market by delivering a superior product with cutting-edge technology and luxury features,” he said. “Simple innovations will make the houseboating experience more enjoyable and more convenient.”

Manufacturing has already begun on new orders so expect to see new Bravada Yachts at a lake near you.
