Superyacht Dardanella in Auckland
One of the few motor yachts ever built by the Vitters shipyard, Dadanella, is currently spending time in Auckland, New Zealand. The 36.88 metre explorer styled yacht was built by the Dutch shipyard in 1998 with naval architecture, exterior and interior design by Vripack. Dardanella is powered by twin 475hp Caterpillar 3408E DITA diesel engines which enable her to achieve a top speed of 13 knots and cruising speed of 12.5 knots. The yacht underwent a semi-intensive interior refit during a period spent at Pendennis shipyard in 2001, whereby her generators were replaced and crew and guest accommodations upgraded.
