YNA Mo­tor Yachts D77 takes lux­ury boat­ing to an ex­cit­ing new level.

As the flag­ship ves­sel of the 2010 Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Boat and Life­style Fes­ti­val to be held next month, the ves­sel’s pow­er­ful, yet el­e­gant, Ital­ian-de­signed pro­file com­mands at­ten­tion like few oth­ers.

At 23.46m (77ft) long and tow­er­ing 4.42m above the water­line, the D77’s dis­place­ment is about 53 tonnes.

Be­yond its im­pres­sive ex­ter­nal ap­pear­ance, the painstak­ing crafts­man­ship that has been in­vested into the D77 is im­me­di­ately ob­vi­ous upon step­ping aboard.

At­ten­tion to de­tail is sec­ond-tonone and only the finest qual­ity ma­te­ri­als and fit­tings have been used through­out to cre­ate a lux­u­ri­ous and comfortable en­vi­ron­ment.

Boast­ing a func­tional five-cabin lay­out — each cabin with an en­suite, in­di­vid­u­ally-con­trolled air­con­di­tion­ing, flatscreen TV, DVD player and stereo 6 — the D77 of­fers lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion at its finest.

Two in­door and two out­door en­ter­tain­ment ar­eas also give the ves­sel the flex­i­bil­ity to be used for any oc­ca­sion, be it a leisurely week­end with fam­ily and friends or a for­mal event with clients.

With four fridges and a com­mer­cial ice­maker on­board, it’s never far to travel for a top up.

Pow­ered by twin MTU 1500hp en­gines, the D77 cruises com­fort­ably at 18knots and has a top open­wa­ter speed of 28knots.

De­spite its size, the ves­sel is also sur­pris­ingly easy to han­dle at the ma­rina, thanks to the bow and stern thruster sys­tem, which is fit­ted as stan­dard.

With a price tag of just un­der

D$4 mil­lion, the D77’s pres­ence at next month’s event sig­ni­fies a ma­jor re­launch for Dyna, fol­low­ing the re­cent ap­point­ment of Mel­bourne Boat Sales as the exclusive Aus­tralian dealer for the in­ter­na­tional mo­tor yacht mar­que.

Mel­bourne Boat Sales di­rec­tor Lee Vi­tiello said he was looking for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity to re­po­si­tion Dyna in the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

‘‘For more than 20 years, boaters around the world have loved the com­bi­na­tion of el­e­gance and ocean-go­ing per­for­mance that Dyna Mo­tor Yachts has in­cor­po­rated into ev­ery hull that has come out of its yard,’’ Mr Vi­tiello said.

‘‘The mar­ket should now pre­pare for the next gen­er­a­tion of Dyna Mo­tor Yachts, which builds on its ex­ist­ing rep­u­ta­tion with con­tem­po­rary style and cut­ting-edge de­sign, not for­get­ting the flex­i­bil­ity Dyna of­fers boaters who want to in­di­vid­u­alise their dream boat.’’

With an im­pres­sive range from 512 to 772 and a new 95-footer on the way, Dyna of­fers a lux­ury mo­tor yacht for ev­ery taste, pur­pose and bud­get — whether it’s a week­end en­ter­tain­ment plat­form, a fam­ily get­away ves­sel or a long-range lux­ury cruiser.

Dyna also of­fers com­pet­i­tive pric­ing with the Dyna 51, for ex­am­ple, start­ing from un­der $1 mil­lion.
