"Dolphin" is a terrific example of a boat that was built to the highest level in terms of craftsmanship, design, and design execution. There are so many clever ideas built into this boat it will amaze those fortunate enough to spend time aboard. Ed Dettling, the builder and driving force behind the Dettling brand built boats that powerboaters, and sailboaters alike would appreciate. Not only is the quality good, the hull design by Hunt outstanding, but the countlless number of details make this boat perfect for short and long terrm cruising by a couple or two couples. To build this boat today a boat builder would have to charge an astronomical amount.
The boat's classic lines look great, but are also very functional. The main salon, for example, features huge fixed windows that let wonderful light into the main living area. The galley is connected to the main salon and it extremely functional with outstanding freezer and refrigerator space, outstanding storage, and clever elements like a trash drop directly into the trash can from counter level.
Forward of the galley is the full beam master stateroom with a double berth athwartship. Storage is plentiful throughout. Attached to the master stateroom and forward is the master head with separate stall show and plenty of storage.
Aft of the main salon is the guest cabin with attached head and shower. There is a full sized washing machine and dryer in the head. The berth is a double berth. Again there is outstanding storage in this space.
Aft of the main salon and up a slighly curved steps is the pilothouse/helm station. The sense of control provided by great visibility is instantly felt when sitting at the helm bench seat. A clever design element is implemented in the pilothouse for those who like to drive outside, but don't want a full flybridge. The area inboard of the helm station is designed to be stood upon and there is a large sliding hatch which one can then stand up through. There is a enclosed electronics box just forward of the hatch that allows the captain to comfortably handle the boat while standing partly outside.
The aft deck/cockpit is a favorite place on this boat as it is covered with a hardtop. There is a beautiful folding table in the middle of the space with folding captains chairs and lounging sofa aft. What a perfect place to enjoy a quiet morning or relax at anchor after a good days trip.
Dolphin has been lovingly maintained by her owners. She is extremely clean on both the interior and exterior. The Awlcraft 2000 Jade Mist Green hull and the deck, pilothouse and cabin house painted with Imron Cream with green accents is beautiful.
The main salon is open, airy, bright. This area is finished with satin varnished honey teak.
Forward of the main salon, down one step is the galley. The galley partially divided from the main salon by a teak faced partial bulkhead. The bulkhead forward bulkhead of the galley is also teak so looking from the salon one sees a big expanse of varnished teak. The galley itself is practically finished in the Herreshoff style of white Formica and varnished teak trim. Galley sole is teak parquet.
Just forward of the galley, the Master Cabin is accessed through a teak door. The Master Cabin is full beam with the master berth athwartship. This area is largely finished in the Herreshoff style with white Formica and varnished teak trim. This style makes the space feel light and bright. Additional light both natural and via lamps and lights.
Forward of the Master Cabin is the Master Head. Upon entering this cabin, the enclosed shower is to port and there is a long vanity to starboard. The marine toilet is forward with an additional vanity to port. Above the marine head is an access door to the anchor locker and additional storage to port and starboard. This area is also finished in the Herreshoff style which makes the space feel bright and airy.
The guest cabin is aft of the main salon. This area is cleverly laid out including a large double berth, large vanity, large hanging locker, and head/shower. It is finished in the Herreshoff style with Formica bulkheads and varnished teak trim. The sole in the cabin is covered with a bound rug. The head and shower sole are ceramic tile.
Upon entering the cabin, the double berth is inboard. Outboard and forward is the shower and marine toilet along with full-sized separate clothes washer and dryer. Aft of the head/shower door is a large hanging locker. Aft of this hanging locker is the head vanity.
The engine room is accessed from the aft end of the guest cabin.
Between the aft deck and the main salon is the pilothouse/helm station. This area provides outstanding visibility to run the boat safely and comfortably. The helm bench has seating for 4 adults.
The aft deck is a wonderful outdoor social area. Hardtop from pilothouse extends to transom and provides outstanding coverage from sun and the elements.
