Luxury Yacht: Saying it in Italian just sounds more romantic than
saying it in English. But no matter how you say it,
the 44.8-meters long Gran Finale by Delta Marine is
one beautiful boat! Launched in 2002, this tri-deck
is the winner of the 2003 "Best Motor Yacht Over 38
Meters" by Showboats International. Its
all-encompassing craftsmanship is perhaps the boat's
greatest benefit. However, providing a smooth ride at
a cruising speed of 18 knots and a top speed over 20
knots, with its twin Caterpillar 3512B engine, is
quite impressive too.
Seaworthy and "see" worthy are of equal value here, as
the powerful megayacht features a private flybridge
with a Jacuzzi, several sun beds and a dining area.
The panoramic view is fully captured with the ship's
large expanse of glass and high ceilings. Exotic
woods and Italian furnishings are prevalent throughout
the four VIP staterooms, and the wraparound decks
offer a variety of intriguing unique nooks for sailors
to relax and bask.
The Gran Finale's design is by Juan Carlos Espinosa
and the composite hull is by the Delta Design Group.
The vessel offers room aplenty and pleasure abound.
