"But playtime was the real hunkered-down kicker. With the side windows open, the slider in the hardtop drawn back, and the whole dang Adriatic, clear to Croatia, in the offing, I put the Mochi Craft 51 Dolphin through a great big pile of figure-eights, U-turns, and downsea beelines—and the test boat performed like a sea-chompin’ champ every time." ~ Power and Motor Yacht
Mamma Mia is a head turner. With classic New England tumblehome and a strong European flair, this is vessel wears her heritage while flaunting an edge that is all but emphasized when you push the throttles forward. This is a very sexy boat with a sensible layout and lots of nice upgrades.
"The first model launched by Ferretti Group, and forerunner of the unmistakable Mochi Craft class, the sinuous design of its lines offers both sophistication and comfort to ship-owner and guests alike. The interior is marked by the warmth of the wood fittings and stylish leather upholstery, with a large cockpit that leads directly into the main lounge area through a glass sliding door. Wherever you are, aboard a 51 Dolphin the sea is just a breathtaking glance away." ~ Mochi Yachts
