Leopard motor yacht Dolce Vita II sold
by Malcolm Maclean
Built in GRP by Italian superyacht yard Arno to a design by Paolo Caliari, Dolce Vita II was delivered in 2000 as one of the yard's Leopard series. A notable example of this sports cruiser range, she has a contemporary Italian design inside and out. Her interior in satin varnished teak panelling has accommodation for seven guests in a master suite, VIP suite and a twin cabin, all with entertainment centres, Sony LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
The electric retractable roof and large windows give the upper deck saloon a spacious feel as well as great views. Ahead of the lounge area there is a service bar to port and further ahead in the bridge are three sporty black leather Recaro helm seats with an elegant central position and doors to the deck on either side for easy access to the foredeck.
Dolce Vita II has a spacious open aft deck with a large sun bed and is ideal for al fresco dining, with access to the swim platform for water sport activities. Her top speed is 40 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 350 nautical miles at 35 knots with power coming from two 1,500hp MTU 12V2000M90 diesel electric engines.
Dolce Vita II was asking $969,000.
