A NEW TROPHY FOR THE MADE-IN-ITALY LOBSTERBOAT January 10, 2009

2009 once again proves to be a year of top-level awards and accolades for Mochi Craft, which triumphed in Dusseldorf at the European Powerboat of the Year. This prestigious event held by the Kiasing Verlag publishing group during BOOT saw the Dolphin 54' Fly crowned winner in the category of "Best Yacht Over 50 feet". This new accolade comes after recognition at London's prestigious "Motor Boat of the Year Awards 2009" in January for the sun top version of the same model in the "Traditional and Retro" category, reflecting the excellent reception it has enjoyed in the British market.

A product of the collaboration between Norberto Ferretti, AYT - Advanced Yacht Technology, Ferretti's naval design and research centre - and the Victory design studio, the Dolphin 54 Fly is a perfect embodiment of the Mochi Craft fleet's distinctive lines, 100% Made-in-Italy style, a predominance of solid woods, sinuous lines and unmistakeable "retro" taste combined with market-leading technology.

In its 16-metre length, this refined lobsterboat with its cream-yellow hull livery offers all the comfort and performance of a large yacht: three cabins, roomy bow sunpads, and a very large cockpit in the great lobsterboat tradition, with direct access to the saloon and galley. This creates an exceptionally comfortable open-air living area offering outstanding comfort and versatility.

These design elements of the Dolphin 54 offer clever solutions to optimize the experience provided by the interior and exterior spaces - the flybridge, the ideal setting for maximum enjoyment of the sun and sea, offers an ideal layout and is accessed by the wood and steel stairs in the cockpit, behind the unit with sink, fridge and optional grill.

The sky lounge sunpad can easily host two people stretched out in comfort, and has en extending bimini to create an area of cool shade, ensuring maximum on-board comfort. The upper command station integrates perfectly with its surroundings, and is ideal for those wishing to pilot the yacht in the open air. The console and instrumentation open electronically, and there is a comfy seat for two. Beside it, is a generous C-shaped divan for up to 5 guests.

"This new success reaffirms Mochi Craft's strength. Backed by the great achievements of its designers and architects, coupled with the yard's outstanding craft skills, in only a few years the brand has created an example of Made-in-itaiy excellence with an unmistakeable personality. Its seagoing qualities and the innovative content displayed by every model are constantly being recognized by the international press, which has given us a number of awards," says Maurizio Roman, Mochi Craft CEO.
