Like the following entry, the PDQ Antares, Dolphin catamarans sit at the quality end of the yacht spectrum with a focus on providing the things that make liveaboard cruising a pleasure.
Unlike the Antares the Dolphin favors a galley up configuration that works well in the salon that has near vertical windows to maximise ceiling height and sports a surprisingly spacious layout. The cockpit features a hard bimini top and can be enclosed if needed to provide a great additional living area in any conditions.
The staterooms are light and airy although the double beds in the aft cabins lie across the hull meaning one person needs to crawl across the other person to get out of bed. Not our favorite layout however the owners version starboard stateroom does provide a bed that lies along the hull.
All up the Dolphin 460 provides an exceptionally comfortable liveaboard catamaran for long distance cruising.
