Interested in Chartering This Yacht?
Originally built in 1953, DP Monitor was the first tugboat in Italy to be transformed into a luxury yacht in 1991. Moreover, she has been totally refitted in 2011-2012 by the new owner and meticulously maintained.
The charm of DP Monitor has no equal: she captures timeless Benetti styling, while offering all the amenities and comfort of a modern yacht. DP Monitor feels incredibly spacious as it is wider than most other 30 mt. yachts are and boasts chic furnishings and décor throughout.
With her three decks, she can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests: the upper deck boasts a huge full beam solarium and house the Captain’s cabin and the cockpit. A little additional deck over the Captain’s stateroom offers an more private escape for those who wish to relax and sunbath in complete privacy.
On the main deck, a large and stylish salon completely designed in a Victorian style but with a modern twist. It features a sophisticated velvety sofa, two comfortable armchairs and a rich wood tea-table with four seats. The dining area is alfresco, on the aft deck, that also include a large sun padded settee. The foredeck houses a fully equipped kitchen, an utility/laundry room and a separate crew quarter.
On the lower deck there are five tastefully appointed cabins, all with ensuite bathroom and shower: two double suites, two twins and a pullman berth cabin; like most of the Benetti classics, they’re all lined with warm wood walls, complemented by a soft and clear moquette. DP Monitor features all the elegance and charm of a period yacht and, due to her original function as a tug, she’s resistant, tough and stable; her consistent fuel and water capacity makes her ideal for long navigation. Her timeless glamorous appeal, her reliability and her over 100 square meters of exterior deck space, make her ideal to cruise the beautiful Mediterranean coastlines in complete comfort and style.
Stand out from the crowd with this statement gentlemen’s yacht.

my short feedback is very positive. The boat is solid, comfortable and stable even in choppy waters. The crew works well together, has a great attitude and willing to help. The captain (and great chef) is a star.
