Simply epic performance cruiser from the legendary Maxi Dolphin, Luca Brenta and Steve Huish in an evolution of the iconic MD65. Launched 2010 with numerous updates on the original design in the pursuit of style, performance and easy of handling.
A continuation from the Maxi Dolphin semi-custom MD65 line, ADASTRA, a custom Brenta MD66 was designed by Luca Brenta and launched in 2010 as the perfect example of the true synergy between the high quality build of Maxi Dolphin and the design ingenuity of Luca Brenta.
Currently configured for effortless short-handed fast cruising, she boasts an extremely high specification including:-
The layout of ADASTRA features a ‘boat owner’ style in the arrangement of the environments, while the décor carries the hallmark of minimalism played on white and on few essential elements of dark timber. As to the interior design, the area at prow was completely innovated and features a real suite in which the double-bed is placed with the headboard towards the prow. Also the central area stands out from the earlier MD65. The chart table and the kitchen (connected with a crew cabin lat stern) are located in two closed rooms, separated from the living room. This way a refined living room with the dining area on the left and a long couch on the starboard side was created. At stern there is the only twin bed room intended for the guests, equipped with a large bathroom.
From sailing to motor yachts, Luca Brenta’s style is absolutely unmistakable, full of innovation and research, combined with the utmost elegance of lines.
A research dating back to the end of the 70s, when Luca Brenta debutted with a ¼ Ton boat followed, in 1987, by the many times winning one-tonner MARISA. The performances and the qualities of the racers are also found on the cruising yachts by Luca Brenta, whose studio, the Luca Brenta Design, was joined by Lorenzo Argento, the current art director, in 1988. In the same way innovation and elegance of lines are the features of the motor yachts. A series of elements expressed by the slogan of the studio: Technology meets Design. The first cooperation of Luca Brenta Design with Maxi Dolphin is the MD 65, a sloop of very modern design and with light displacement, realized in five models, each one with a different interior layout. The MD65 series is then followed by the TP52 Astro, a racing yacht made of composites, using the most advanced construction technologies.
Utmost elegance, use of the most advanced technologies and of the new project visions in the continuous search for beauty: this is the course followed by Maxi Dolphin since 1987.
"Beauty? It’s something that makes you feel good, therefore something very individual. To me it means order, harmony and sharing. No beautiful thing makes sense if you cannot share it with others". With this vision, along with his passion for the sea, boats and nature, in 1987 Vittorio Moretti created the Maxi Dolphin boatyard. The first boat built by Maxi Dolphin was the 73ft CARMEN DI BELLAVISTA, designed by Bruce Farr, followed by the maxi 118 ft VIRIELLA, designed by Germán Frers. Two boats built according to that search for innovation, which is the basis of the Moretti Group, operating not only in the boating sector, but also in that of industrialized building , as well as in the top class enological, hotel and catering sectors.
A long number of sailing boats followed CARMEN DI BELLAVISTA and VIRIELLA: standard monotypes (over 300 produced Dolphin 81) and from 75 to 100 ft One-Off sailing boats, the outcome of the cooperation with the main yacht designers.
Roberto Starkel, Germán Frers, Bruce Farr, Luca Brenta Design, Bill Tripp, Finot-Conq are some of the designers for Maxi Dolphin, which in 2007 launched the MD Power: an innovative line of motor yachts, built using the same technologies of sailers and applying the same concept of custom-made, the real hallmark of all Maxi Dolphin boats.
