New Model: Dellapasqua DC18 Elite

Dellapasqua continues to upgrade its sport models line up with the introduction of the biggest DC18 Elite, presented in the last 2010 Genoa show. The new DC18 is the sixth Elite of the range, in the Dellapasqua model line up of fifteen models. Here Dellapasqua continue in its traditional modern cross over looks especially to what concerns the hull lines, but as is custom in the Elite range a look to the future comes from the upper structure. Comfort is also synonymous with the Dellapasqua and the bigger sized Elite models, with the 18 offering a comfortably spacious four double cabin interior, with three heads. More impressive in this arrangement is if you consider that the owners stateroom is a full beam affair, and no guest cabin is a bunk. For sleeping this is surely one of the most comfortable lower decks in this size of just two centimeters less to eighteen meters. A split level saloon, with three sofas, and a galley located behind the helm completes the very well planned living interior, which shows the genuinely of this new model from a family owned and run builder. Power to the traditional Hunt inspired deep Vee hull is twin engines of 1050hp each, with traditional line shafts as propulsion.
