DRAGON is a yacht of instant legend and far-reaching fame. Delivered in 2019 by highly experienced shipyard Palumbo Yachts to exterior designs by studio Hydro Tec and interiors by Francesco Guida, this 79.5m (260.8ft) yacht embodies the very best of Italy: impeccable taste, effortless style and uncompromising quality.

At very close to 80m and with a beam of 13m, she wears her prodigious 2,210GT volume easily, naturally proportioned and easy on the eye. The result is a six-deck yacht, with an elevator serving all five guest decks, that offers a variety of versatile space inside and out.

Moving inside from the large lounge on the main deck aft, all is clean-lined, contemporary cool, at once restful and inviting, peaceful yet playful. Cream fabric-covered minimalist sofas around Chelini coffee tables in the main saloon are lit by huge picture windows measuring 5x2m (16.4x6.6ft) and the Giorgetti dining table seats 14 guests. As you might expect of a yacht less than 12 months old, her AVIT equipment is state of the art.

Other than the owner's suite on its private deck, there is a VIP suite forward plus four guest double cabins on the main deck plus a further twin cabin on the lower deck, thus completing accommodation for 14 in seven cabins. She sleeps up to 21 crew.

Toy storage includes 7 and 9.5m (23 and 31.1ft) tenders behind a shell door to starboard. Three jet skis are stowed behind a shell door forward to port on the main deck, under a touch-and-go foredeck helipad that also doubles as a large terrace or games deck.

Twin MTU 3,000hp diesel engines driving twin shafts give her a top speed of 17kn and a transoceanic range of 6,200nm cruising at 12kn.
