Project: Maxi Dolphin 48 Tender

New order for the Maxi Dolphin boatyard in Erbusco, Brescia for a 48 feet tender boat designed by Nauta Yachts currently being built and completed at the boatyard. An enrichment and enhancement of the boatyard’s experience in the field of motor yachts, the idea behind the Maxi Dolphin 48 Tender project is a fast support sport cruiser for a super yacht of major dimensions.  The 48 Tender will feature a soft and continuous fender line for protection, facilitating the docking at the mother boat.  The exterior design has been inspired by an aesthetic appeal recalling work boats. The tender actually appears to be a patrol boat, yet is distinguished by elegant lines that are in perfect harmony with the essence of a virtually navy and likewise handy boat.  The cockpit has been designed for living the sea with two large stern sun decks, and two adjoining symmetrically arranged living spaces with tables in the hard-top protected area, which can be lowered to create additional sun-protected relaxing spaces. This area is directly connected to the efficient and cutting-edge bridge with front glazing enabling high visibility even in case of night-time navigation.  The below-deck layout provides a comfortable master cabin at bow with en-suite bathroom, a kitchen as well as a sailor guest cabin with private services. The both elegant and cosy style has been enhanced by the use of distinctive materials such as resin-bonded laminated linen for the ceilings, and for kitchen and bath tops.  Power will come from twin 600hp Cummins engines with Kamewa water-jets propulsion.  Design predicted top speed is of 38 knots.
