Mochi Craft - The Dolphin 74' Cruiser
Larger volumes, an innovative layout and the utmost privacy for the Owner. Mochi Craft’s flagship epitomises unrivalled formal and functional excellence. Mochi Craft is presenting its flagship, the Dolphin 74’ Cruiser - the response to a demanding clientele looking for excellence in terms of seaworthiness, comfort and design. The Dolphin 74’ Cruiser, an ideal yacht for long cruises, is characterised by a series of innovations that are truly unique in the Lobster segment: functional and very modern solutions on this yacht take the concept of on-board liveability to unprecedented levels, fully expressing the experience and leadership of the Ferretti Group.
This yacht stands out among thanks to four truly distinctive elements: The flybridge has been extended to shelter the entire cockpit and offers new comfortable spaces in the open air, perfectly harmonising with the stylish profile typical of all Dolphin yachts; the main deck is divided into two separate areas - the lounging area and the dining area; the wide separate galley provides direct access to the crew quarters, thereby allowing the crew members to move freely from the service areas to the garage through the engine room, thus ensuring the Owner’s privacy; the crew area is impressively large, and also includes a utility room.
Designed by architect Brunello Acampora from Studio Victory Design in close cooperation with AYT&D - Advanced Yacht Technology & Design, Ferretti Group’s research and development Department, the Dolphin 74’ Cruiser compounds all the experience gained by Mochi Craft since it first created the “Italian Style” Lobster Boat. The result is a last-generation lobster boat retaining all Mochi Craft’s elegance and style while introducing innovative functional solutions.
The Dolphin 74’ Cruiser combines the stylish and top-performing features of the hull – featuring a variable geometry deep-V bottom, an average deadrise angle of 19°, and longitudinal steps – with the typically marine style of its interiors, characterised by an extensive use of warm, golden solid teak. The elegance of the bitts, which have been manually shaped from one single block of steel, and the wide range of pastel colours available for the Owner to choose from for the hull prove once more that this yacht is truly aiming for uniqueness.
The flybridge is very wide (25 m2 ) and offers great freedom of movement. The pilot station is in a central position; towards the bow is the large dinette with a corner sofa, fully equipped to dine in the open air, while in the aft part guests can enjoy sunbathing comfortably lying on a large sun pad. Upon request, a Bimini top can also be installed on the flybridge.
The day area is very generous and has been arranged so as to divide the service areas from the Owner’s quarters, thereby ensuring maximum comfort and privacy for the Owner at any time during the day; its 20m2 area includes a living room, a dining area, a separate galley, the pilot station and a dinette.
The salon – which is very large to ensure maximum liveability in the entire living area – features a comfortable conversation area, furnished with a large L-shaped sofa to portside, an armchair and a coffee table. To port stand a second sofa, a corner table, and a concealing TV set, which can be up to 42” in size.
Walking towards the bow access is gained to the dining area, furnished with a large table with leather chairs seating eight people; the furniture behind the table and around this area provides for a lot of storage space. On the left-hand side is the separate, fully-equipped galley, which is divided from the living area by a wall with a sliding door. All crew members can move freely without disturbing the Owner since, from the galley, a staircase leads to the crew area, located on the lower deck, while a side door opens onto an outdoor sidedeck which connects the entire main deck to the pilot station.
On the lower deck, the master stateroom enjoys the utmost privacy: this 21m² full-beam cabin has been located in the central part of the yacht so as to ensure maximum comfort, stability and noiselessness.
Two large windows with opening portholes at the sea level flood the entire cabin with natural light; on the port side, walking past a living area furnished with two armchairs and a coffee table, access is gained to the spacious walk-in wardrobe, while the vanity set, opposite the bed, is built-in in a low cabinet with drawers and storage compartments, which runs along the entire starboard bulwark.
The ensuite bathroom, with striped maple teak flooring, has been rationally divided into three separate areas, fitted with two washbasins, a large shower with mosaic walls, and the sanitary fixtures, thereby ensuring maximum comfort and privacy.
