Fly Bridge versus Sport Yacht


Another topic that is the subject of debate in the nautical world is the difference between the various two styles of boats: sport yachts and flybridge.

A sport yacht, or also defined as open, is a boat whose main characteristics are:

Luxury Yacht Open S75
Filippetti S75 – SPORT YACHT
  • High performance;
  • Planing hull;
  • Single deck over the hull;
  • Sporty and captivating look.

Sports yachts are designed to reach high speeds. Thanks to the different motorization and propulsion configurations, they guarantee high performance in terms of maximum speed and navigation.

A flybridge boat is characterized by having an area in the “roof” of the boat – called fly – where there are a driving position and a sunbathing area. This area is usually covered by a hardtop.

Even these boats are usually equipped with a planing hull.


In addition, state-of-the-art and latest generation navigation instruments are installed in both sport boats and flybridge.

However, unlike sports yachts, flybridge yachts are by definition more comfortable – even if they are still very performing.

It then happens that these two styles merge, especially when the sport boats become large enough to be able to place a driving position and a sunbathing area in the fly. This type of luxury yacht is called Filippetti Sport Bridge.

The Filippetti Yacht range

The Filippetti Yacht range consists of 4 series of yachts, including the SPORT YACHTS SERIES and the FLYBRIDGE YACHTS SERIES.
