This Dolphin 430, owned since new by an international commercial airline pilot, is in amazing condition for a yacht of her vintage. She has been docked behind his home in Florida nearly her entire life and sailed to the Bahamas for the Winter season then home again.
Always maintained to top standards. She is the same hull and tooling as the popular Dolphin 460, the famous Brazilian built catamaran that has many circumnavigations in her history.
Big daggerboards, carbon mast, all foam core hulls, vinylester resin, she is a top flight build crafted by legendary boat builder Philippe Pouvreau, a third generation French builder who set up his factory in Brazil. Philippe continues to build custom cats in Brazil. The Dolphin production ceased in 2009 due to the global financial crisis, but the 24 that were built are sailing all over the world and they are cherished by their owners for their optimum performance, great craftsmanship, and robust construction.
Honestly, it would be very hard in the current market to find a finer built performance oriented catamaran of this quality for this price. Replacement for the carbon rig and beams alone would be over $175,000.
We always say in the yacht brokerage industry that it is very hard to "buy for a pilot" but always a wonderful pleasure to "sell for a pilot"
This is just a very well cared for catamaran selling at an exceptional price. As the owner says, "I have enjoyed my Dolphin for nearly 18 years. She's never let me down."
