MD51 Power is a motor boat that gathers the sail expertise of Maxi Dolphin in the use of composite materials, in the application of advanced building technologies, in the keels design, whose lines are optimized in order to reach the best hydrodynamic efficiency. The project is one of the designs by Engineer Roberto Starkel.
An extremely modern motor yacht whose lines, inspired by the 30’s sailing, create a refined contrast with the high tech materials: the boat is entirely realized through the SprintR technology that allows to have an extremely strong product without giving up to its unrivalled lightness, only 10.500kg.
Its motor is a jewel of technology: as a matter of fact two Volvo Penta IPS 600 engines are installed, 435 Horsepower each. Volvo Penta IPS (Inboard Performance System) is the new and revolutionary propulsion system created by Volvo Penta; with an incredible efficiency growth if compared to the inboard systems, they offer a higher maximum speed, a higher acceleration and elevated performance. Moreover, thanks to the significant fuel saving, the cruising range is definitely improved.
Its maneuverability resembles the automotive one: it allows easy mooring and perfect manageability at high speed.
MD 51 Power is conceived and developed with an eye towards the environment and sustainability; its lightness, together with an accurate research of the keel lines, allow the use of motors with lower power if compared to the ones used on boats with similar dimensions; this means that, for the same performance, lower consumptions are reached (100 l/h at cruising speed) together with a high cruising range (around 540 miles at cruising speed) and a significant reduction of the CO2 emissions.
The interiors are completely customizable, in terms of layout, materials, fabrics, illumination and electrical devices. According to the kind of use desired by the ship owner, we can think about different solutions, with one or two cabins, open spaces and, moreover, the possibility of adding a crew cabin.
