|Mochi Craft Dolphin 74|
Any regular Knots and Boats reader knows that this blogger, if given the choice, would choose exceptional value over exceptional luxury. With Mochi Craft, however, there are more than a few reasons to eschew tradition and instead opt for an 'I-have-arrived' kind of yachting experience.
Meet the Mochi Craft: exceptional yachts from 44' to 74', emblazoned with their dancing dolphin logo, and decked out in the most luxurious fit-and-finish any yachtsman could ask for.
|That's right, this is a cabinet. An awesome cabinet.|
|Tough to see here, but this paneling motif was sprinkled thoughtfully throughout the yacht.|
|These linens were a soft-sensory experience to touch.|

Perhaps Mochi's uniqueness and Italian heritage would be enough to sway the buyers who wanted a little something different, but equally as elegant. I'd actually be interested in hearing from Mochi owners what it was that swayed them to the brand. Its website expounds the virtues of parent company Ferretti's technology, but all of these builders are rolling out exceptional features and technologies that have real benefits for all customers.
Regardless of whether Mochi would be your first choice or not, I want to make a strong case for trying to get onto one of these yachts on the dock. And if you have the opportunity to set out for a sunset cruise aboard a Mochi Craft, ditch the kids, turn off the phone, and let nothing disturb your journey.
It might be the only experience you can't afford and can't afford to miss.
