2003 Dyna Laguna 77
The Dyna 77 Laguna sure is impressive in every way but the first thing you will notice is her volume. From the dock, you would be forgiven for thinking your about to board a 100 footer and this sense of space and luxury continues throughout this fine motor yacht. The quality workmanship and finishes that Dyna are known for have never been more evident than in "Gambler" which, when delivered in 2003 would have been classed as a superyacht of grand proportions.
When entering the vast saloon area through double opening stainless framed glass sliding doors, the Gatsby era opulence quickly becomes evident. The ballroom-like saloon is perfect for entertaining in style. Think bubbles and bowties and even a violinist in the corner. This is yacht capable of some serious entertaining. Similarly, the grandeur of the Dyna 77 would make the perfect liveaboard or holiday apartment in your favourite cruising grounds.
The accommodation set up in Gambler is incredible. Three guest cabins are accessed forward of the saloon/galley area where you will find two identical and generous twin cabins, each with their own ensuites with separate shower stalls. Then turning aft back towards midship you will find the first of two master suites. I say two because this suite is near identical to the one accessed aft of the saloon. This forward master is full beam and oozes luxury. The centre king island bed anchors the suite and is flanked by ample storage, vanity and desk area. The ensuite is laced with marble and has a spa bath and overhead shower. The aft master is near identical but with a separate shower stall in lieu of the spa bath. This suite is separated from the guest accommodation area forward so you can have complete secluded privacy
Pick a space, any space.
As with a home, when spending a lot of time onboard, or when entertaining guests or extended family, having numerous spaces to spend time is an important aspect of relaxing boating. Gambler provides this, and then some. The saloon with the bar, the forward seating area, the galley, the aft cockpit, the sky lounge, the jacuzzi on the bow, the massive swim platform. The spaces are abundant and generous which really adds to the volume and usability of this substantial yacht.
Powered by twin 1350 MTU engines, Gambler is capable of reaching 28 knots which, while seldom used, is important to be able to make a dash before the a weather window closes while cruising the Australian Coast or beyond. It also means that while cruising at say 10 knots, your RPM is not much above idle and hence very efficient. With updated electronics including radar, FLIR night vision, AIS, charts and depth, you have all the modern nav aids for safe, extensive cruising. While substantial in stature, Gambler responded really well at slow speeds coming in and out of the berth and with the wing station and bow and stern thruster, this close-quarter maneuvering isn't as daunting as one would think. With a huge amount of fridges, freezers, wine fridges, dishwashers and galley appliances combined with a water maker and ice maker Gambler is set up for extended holidays onboard or live-aboard operations.
What we Say
This is a seriously stylish yacht. Her Gatsby-era finishes and really cool fun features instantly made me imagine all the good memories I could make onboard. She's classic but modern at the same time. It's hard to look past the Jacuzzi on the bow with a golf tee-off point but when you do, you realise this is an incredibly well-optioned yacht at an extremely attractive price point. With great service history, fresh detail, recent upgrades and way to many options to list, please get in touch and we can show you through this stunner.
