Dolphin 54' Fly Is The New Mochi Craft Flybridge
Just For Real Sea Lovers

This summer Mochi Craft’s new lobster boat the Dolphin 54’ fly is to leave the yard in Forlì, In this way the inventor of the Italian Lobster Boat Style responds to demands of owners from across the world who would like the opportunity to choose Mochi Craft excellence in both a sun top and flybridge version.

The new Dolphin – created by Norberto Ferretti, the Ferretti Group’s AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology) Engineering Division and the Victory Design Studio – replicates the successful initiative that led to packed order books in 2007 for the Dolphin 64’!

After revealing at Cannes in 2003 the Dolphin 51’, first member of the fleet, Mochi Craft has been originating throughout successive years a full range of crafts between 44’ and 74’ winning countless awards from the international press and obtaining a significant commercial success. They have now become “must haves” for owners who appreciate a product with a unique personality that embodies a perfect balance between breathtaking lines, the skilful choice of prized, natural materials and the finest on board facilities and equipment.

The wheel comes full circle with the new Dolphin 54’fly, a triumphant return to the 50-60 foot class that creates a new reference point, capitalizing on all the experience acquired over the past five crucial years. 

The flybridge, a perfect place to enjoy sun and sea to the full, offers clever solutions and an ingenious layout. It’s accessed from the cockpit by the wood and steel stairs behind the wet bar unit, which can also be equipped with a grill on request. 

The sky lounge sun pad has plenty of room for two people to stretch out and offers a retractable Bimini to create shady areas for maximum on board comfort. The command position, especially for those who prefer to take the helm in the open air, fits in perfectly with the atmosphere of the flybridge. The instrument console opens electronically, and there’s also comfy seating for 2.This is flanked by a C-shaped divan seating up to 5.

The design solutions include a reconfiguration of on board spaces, giving this 16 meter yacht the comfort and functionality of a much larger design while retaining typical Dolphin features like the sinuous lines, highlighted by warm, bright new cream-yellow livery and the extensive use of solid wood, from the inviting teak floor in the roomy cockpit, furnished with two comfy divans at the sides and one flanking the dinette entrance. The beauty and practicality of the wood extends throughout the yacht’s interior and exterior surfaces, right up to the bows, where there are two luxurious sun pads accommodating up to three people.

The cockpit gives access to the tender garage. Entry is provided by two hatches – one is electro-hydraulically operated, and when fully open becomes a roomy swim platform. The other is operated manually.

The tender – ready for use and also available personalized by MOCHI CRAFT on request – is easy to launch using a clever system that allows it slide directly into the water.

On entering the living area visitors will be entranced by wide windows creating an ideal combination of sea and sky views. Quality hides in natural colors reflect the elegance of the salon, furnished with a roomy C-shaped divan and an extendable teak table.

The spacious, well-equipped galley extends along the starboard side of the salon, encouraging an atmosphere of warm sociability. The galley gives access to a below deck storage area which can be transformed on request into a welcoming crew cabin with separate head.

The command console is located forward, to port. Next to it, on the starboard side of the salon, is a co-pilot’s chair for any guest wishing to keep the owner company during a cruise - a totally new element that once again shows the care lavished on every person aboard this new lobster boat.

This section gives access to the sleeping area. At the end of the corridor lies the owner’s stateroom, a suite with two sweeping windows stretching down to sea level, flooding the space with natural light and creating the sensation of being able to plunge your hands directly into the sea and enjoy all its moods to the full. The cabin has two spacious cupboards, a large set of drawers beneath the bed and numerous wall units, and is flanked by a private bathroom with shower unit.

Two guest cabins are sited to either side of the central corridor, a twin to port and a cabin to starboard that offers the owner a choice between two functional solutions – a standard version with a double bed and extra single above it that can accommodate up to three guests, or an optional version with large double bed and spacious wardrobe. These cabins share the bathroom accessed from either the central corridor or the port cabin. Here too the spaces are filled with light from the sun and sea, flooding in through the large windows and the new opening portholes in the deckhouse.
