About this Boat

Dolphin 460 FINALMENTE is an impeccable yacht in addition to being an elite, bluewater catamaran. She was purchased new by a very experienced yachting couple that sought sailing performance and dynamic comfort above all else. She is an owner version (3 cabin layout) that features a galley up-design with the owner hull to starboard: a master cabin aft, separate office mid-ships and bathroom with walk-in shower stall forward. The owners have cherished and upgraded this yacht over its entire career and today offer it in absolutely top shape, I can confidently say.

As the worldwide agents for Dolphin Catamarans, The Multihull Company has accompanied numerous owners on their adventures around the world and has seen these yachts evolve. This is the cleanest and most painstakingly maintained Dolphin 460 I have known. Take a visit through the attached photo gallery and very detailed specification and then jump on a plane to inspect and sea trial her. You will not be disappointed, I assure you. 

The Dolphin 460 is a dagger-board cat that features very fine bows, a generous sail plan and light- weight construction: vinylester and polyester resins/glass over divinycell foam core throughout. The result is a very agile and responsive cat that will sail circles around many of its peers in light airs including the Catana 471, Nautitech 475, Freydis 46 and such bluewater cat offerings. FINALMENTE sports a performance suit of sails that includes a recent main and genoa, as well as gennaker and spinnaker. Another highlight - FINALMENTE has just received a brand new Raymarine navigation electronics package installed this winter. See details in the electronics section. 

A large 9.5 KVA Onan generator and solar array keep the onboard amenities powered. These include air-conditioning throughout, watermaker, large fridge and freezer, two electric heads, washer/dryer, electric winch and the list goes on. 

FINALMENTE is currently on the hard in Sicily and will be recommissioned in April. She has new bottom paint, the engines and saildrives are serviced and she is ideally located for a season in the eastern or western Mediterranean. You choose.

Please read the "Owner Comments" and "Dolphin Facts" sections in the attached specification for more information on this superb yacht.

Special "try before you buy" offer on FINALMENTE: Pay a non-refundable deposit of $10,000 and meet us in the Ionian (Corfu, Greece) for seven nights cruising with my wife and me.  All food and drinks are included while on board.  You will be responsible for your personal expenses incurred while on shore.  We have a few requests while onboard; no shoes, no smoking, no rings, no watches, no metal belt buckles, and no bracelets.  If you decide to purchase Finalmente, your deposit will be applied to the purchase price.

Dolphin 460 2007 Hull #23 

Krissy and I have been sailing Finalmente for twelve years in the Med and love the boat.  I have owned several boats during my lifetime and I was even a part owner in a boat repair yard, and without hesitation I can say that this Dolphin catamaran is one of the best catamarans afloat.  Everyone that comes onboard comments on the quality.  People cannot believe she is twelve years old. 

We purchased her new at the Dolphin yard in Aracca, Brazil, March 2007.  I sailed her to Italy and have remained in the Med visiting Italy east and west coast, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey and Malta.  During this time many people have been aboard and have commented on her quality; fit and finish.  Many say that Finalmente is one of the best-looking cats that they have ever seen.  My monohull friends are impressed with her ability to sail to weather easily at 34 AWA with little slippage due to the deep dagger-boards. 

Finalmente is a very comfortable live-a-board catamaran.  The saloon is large with a wooden entertainment center housing a 32” LG 3D LED TV and Bose 321 sound system.  She is wired for 220 volts, has a 9kw Onan generator, and is equipped with everything except a dishwasher; no need to add anything and all systems are working properly.  With three air conditioners hot weather is not a problem.  The engine rooms have great access for preforming all necessary maintenance.  As for storage there is plenty of it, both inside and outside with easy access.  The interior wood work is excellent as is the glass work. All her Raymarine electronics are currently being replaced with current year Raymarine products, i.e. AXIOM 12” color WIFI touch with a 600w 3D RealVision fish finder, AXIOM 9” color WIFI touch, 3D RealVision transducer, AIS, Quantum Q24D radar, Evolution EV-400 autopilot, i70s wind system, i70s color display, VHF Ray90, etc.  See the attached list of new equipment being installed this winter. 

Finalmente has an owner’s layout with two aft berths and one v-berth, two showers and two electrical fresh water toilets.  She includes a washing machine and an owner’s office/desk. 

When we purchased Finalmente we set up a corporation, CARNAC CATS, LLC.  The LLC was and is for the sole purpose of holding Finalmente.  The transfer of Finalmente to new owners can be easily accomplished by the transferring of the LLC stock if the new owners wish to maintain a Delaware LLC.  Finalmente is registered in Delaware.


The Dolphin’s hulls are of vacuum-bagged Vinylester resin-glass/Divinycell foam composite construction.  The decks are vacuum-bagged polyester resin-glass/Divinycell foam.  Structural bulkheads are cored with Divinycell foam.  Furniture panels and cabinetry utilize feather weight Nida-Core with a woodgrain laminate finish. The key to the Dolphin’s light displacement is the careful use of an impregnation machine and vacuum-bagging.  Jr. Pimenta, the builder, estimated that these construction processes save 500 kg (1,100 pounds) over conventional hand layup methods.

To further save weight, bands of unidirectional glass are used in high stress areas, such as reinforcement in the daggerboard trunks and a large “X” in the deck laminate that runs from the mast step to the hulls.  The Dolphin 460 features watertight “crash” bulkheads forward in the hulls, a one-piece main bulkhead that spans the entire beam of the boat and ties the hulls and bridge deck together, and a hull/deck joint that is glassed on both the inside and outside, turning the hull and deck into a strong, leak proof unit.

The hull/deck joint characterizes Dolphin’s construction philosophy.  Glassing the joint takes many more hours than mechanically fastening, but a glassed joint is superior in every way.  This approach, carried forward into many other areas of the Dolphin, has pushed the boat’s construction a step above that of the average production cat.  It also explains why each boat takes more than 20,000 man-hours to build.

The boat is wired according to American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) specifications, and major equipment items, such as the windlass, watermaker, and genset, are properly sized and installed. The boat carries 450 liters (119 gallons) of water and 550 liters (145 gallons) of fuel in molded-epoxy tanks.

The quality of the Dolphin 460’s interior is impressive. The boat combines easy-care laminates (stratfill teak-and-holly cabin sole, wood-grained laminate-face cabinetry and hull panels) with stylish vinyl and wood overhead panels and well positioned, quality lighting and fans.

The woodwork, of various Brazilian hardwoods, is well drafted and attractive throughout the boat’s joiner work and finish are on a par with that of a custom yacht.
