Mochi Dolphin 64

The new Mochi Craft Dolphin 64 stands out from the crowd with its aquamarine green hull. As is traditionally the case with lobster boats, the cockpit is very large and is fitted with a bench sofa astern and a small corner sofa. An additional bench sofa and fixed table can be positioned in the transom.

A glass sliding door and pivoting window allows light in while separating the cockpit from the dinette, which houses two large corner sofas.

The galley is located towards the bow and comes fully-equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. The galley is separated from the dinette by a television unit, which holds a 26-inch plasma screen TV. The lower deck layout comprises three cabins and bathrooms. The master suite is serviced by a large bathroom that measures 5m square and is fitted with two washbasins, a shower and head.

There is teak flooring throughout and guests are well catered for with a large VIP cabin at the bow and another double cabin in the centre of the boat. Guests in the VIP cabin have their own bathroom, complete with head and shower. The garage, with electro-hydraulic opening, is positioned below the cockpit and hosts a ready-inflated tender.

The Mochi Craft Dolphin 64 is available in a range of colours and can accommodate two 1100Mhp MAN V10 or 1124Mhp MAN V12 engines.

Regal 2700

Regal’s new 2700 bowrider features its new FasTrac hull, which Regal says has a deep 24-degree deadrise to provide greater fuel efficiency and a quicker holeshot. Starting aft, there is a large, extended swim platform with 3-step stainless steel boarding ladder. Access to the engine compartment is via a forward opening hatch, which is electrically-actuated from either the helm or transom.

Inside the cockpit is a U-shaped seating arrangement and a table that can be stowed away when not in use. Meal preparation is made easy with pressurised water, moulded sink and Corian countertops, while there is room for a stainless steel gas grill and cockpit refrigerator, if required.

At the helm is a custom burl wood dash fitted with white-faced, backlit Faria gauges. An optional wooden wheel is available. The port console, with built-in glove box, conceals the head compartment. The head comes standard with overhead lighting, an opening port light and a chemical toilet. Those planning on extended cruises may opt for the optional porcelain VacuFlush head with holding tank.
