Project: Maxi Dolphin MD70 Power

Maxi Dolphin, the Italian shipyard founded in 1987 and managed by MD Technologies since 2016, is working on the construction for a new MD70, flagship for its MD Power line. The MD70 Power is a fast, luxury cruiser designed by the in-house Design Office together with Rogantin Studio in charge of the hull, and with Advanced Mechanical Solutions as far as structures are concerned.  Hull and deck are built using Maxi Dolphin’s signature technologies with pre-preg glass, carbon fibre, epoxy, vacuum laminated and post cured in the shipyard’s 40-meter oven. Interiors are lightweight and built in Nomex sandwich and pre-preg linen. The variable geometry hull was developed by CFD, focusing on the best sailing trim and seaworthiness. Propulsion is guaranteed by two Kamewa water jets and two MAN 1300hp, allowing for 40 knots and 37 knots of maximum and cruising speed respectively. The first MD70 Power is intended to act as a support boat for a super yacht, with a special interiors layout with an owner’s suite, a large living room complete with galley, an ample bathroom and a cabin accommodating two crew members. The boat’s deck plan also has a special configuration, while the standard Cruising version, in addition to the several Maxi Dolphin’s typical tailored interior solutions, features a deck plan aiming at living in close contact with the sea. The Cruising version also features a large sundeck aft of the cockpit, which is connected to an Opacmare’s platform. Forward there is a real living room with table and dinette, as well as a second sundeck.  The delivery of the new MD70 Power, which joins the other two models of the Maxi Dolphin’s Power range, the MD51 and the MD53, is scheduled for the 2021 summer.
