Generous spaces for maximum comfort
As for theinterior design of the new Maxi Dolphin 75′, Nauta Design was inspired by a classic style with marine elements revisited with a modern twist, in which lightness and cleanliness are the leitmotif of the geometries and decor. Bulkheads, masonry, and furniture are decorated in the “lambris” style: the lower part is made of oak with a “scratched” effect, which conveys a warm, welcoming feeling, while the upper part is made of white panels that enhance the clean design.
The layout provides generous spaces for all areas. Thelarge living room, which is accessed by the convenient, very wide, low-slung entrance staircase, provides a dining area with a table for 6 to 8 people and a large sofa lounge that can comfortably accommodate four people lying down.
Immediately forward is the sleeping area, which provides up to 7 berths in 3 comfortable cabins, all with their own bathrooms with separate shower stalls.
The area furthest forward is occupied by the master suite, which accommodates a large double bed and is connected to a spacious bathroom, with double sinks and separate shower stall.
The guest cabin on the left has two separate beds that can join into a single double bed on the broadside, and the additional coach allows for three berths. Finally aft, to starboard of the engine room, there is a third guest cabin with a double bed and private bathroom.
Aft of the salon, to the left, is the galley open to the salon for better quality service on board and with which it shares the same style. Through the galley you reach the crew cabin, with stacked beds. The Maxi Dolphin75 also has a convenient and functional garage for a 3.27-meter tender.
