New Model: Dalla Pieta DP70 Fly

Finally this new Dalla Pieta DP70 Fly have seen the water.  I can actually testify as this new Dalla Pieta model, also flagship of its flybridge motor yacht line visited Malta in the first part of the season. This new Dalla Pieta 70 Fly follows the conceptual elements of this Venice builder who always presented very easy to the eye call them harmonic looking cruisers and yachts with a big emphasis on sea keeping, full hand building, semi custom choice, and good performance.  When I saw the Dalla Pieta 70 Fly I was definitely impressed by its slimmer hull, showing the usual Dalla Pieta attention to performance and good sea keeping.  We can also see in the specifications the construction element where the Dalla Pieta actually weighs just short of forty tons unloaded.  This is what most known names and production yachts of this size usually weight loaded with fuel.  Four or three cabins lower deck layout are offered for the 70 Fly with the fourth cabin being a bunk, and the master room at full beam midships.  Two crew cabins served by a shower head are available for the crew to aft.  Power is twin MAN 1550hp which will give a 35 knots top speed.
