Fitted with Volvo Penta's IPS800 pod-drive system with twin D11 engines producing 600hp each, this boat is not for the fainthearted. She reaches 32kts and handles like a sports car, but that's not her only claim to fame. Where this boat shines is in the clever use of space, thanks to some innovative design elements resulting in a boat with three roomy staterooms, the full-beam master aft, two heads, spacious living areas inside and out, and a social skylounge to boot.

"A very easy boat to drive at any speed, even idling out from Docklands along the Yarra River, the Dyna 52 goes where she's pointed"

The owners of our test Dyna 52 knew exactly what they wanted when they approached the Australian distributor of Dyna Yachts. Their needs coincided with dealers desire to bring a Dyna 52 fitted with IPS into Australia, so they worked together to build this boat specifically to suit the owners' lifestyle. That's essentially Dyna's point of difference, producing boats to individual requirements - subsequently they offer lots of options in terms of layout, finish, power-plants and equipment, and all within a budget.


A three-panel sliding door leads from the cockpit into the living area, with dedicated storage for bottles and glassware to port. Opposite to starboard, the aft galley is perfectly located to serve either forward to the saloon or out to the cockpit. The floor here is polished teak, meaning wet feet are no problem from sodden guests or family coming in after a dip off the swimplatform. It's a compact galley, with a twin-burner ceramic cooktop, sink, twin 147lt under-bench side-by-side fridges and a separate icemaker. A convection microwave is also housed under-bench alongside storage, with more cabinets above at eye level.

The saloon, up a couple of steps forward from the galley, has plush carpet underfoot. A lounge to port faces a large dinette opposite providing a social layout suitable for either family living or casual entertaining. A pop-up TV and audio system with DVD/CD is built into the forward bulkhead, the speakers in the ceiling, while the huge windscreen and large side windows drench the room in natural light. Dark, high-gloss (read piano finish) walnut cabinetry contrasts with light-coloured leather upholstery, while overhead, stylish timber inlays in the ceiling blend with LED lighting to produce a luxurious, contemporary look with a stylish open feel.


The bulkhead under the windscreen is cut away, bathing the staircase and companionway to the accommodation below in natural light. Heading downstairs the clever use of space becomes immediately obvious with a vanity unit and hand basin housed in an alcove to port. A concertina mirror above the vanity retracts, revealing an opening portlight for fresh air and light and when extended, it acts as a privacy blind. Frosted glass doors either side of the vanity lead to a shower room on one side and opposite, a head with vacuflush toilet.

This bathroom combo acts as the dayhead and services the VIP cabin forward and the third stateroom opposite to starboard that's fitted with four bunks. (The patriarch of the family has four grandchildren). This setup works for a large family, especially with young children, allowing one person to be showering while others use the head or the vanity basin.

The spacious full-beam master suite is located aft and features a full-size walkaround bed athwartships with an en suite set-up similar to that in the companionway. All staterooms feature individual air-conditioning, independent audio controls, plus ample storage and hanging space. Large hull windows, opening portholes and overhead hatches throughout provide abundant light and ventilation.


The fully covered cockpit features seating on the transom with LED lighting overhead and a (removable) icebox built into the cockpit coaming so that cool drinks are always close at hand. Steps either side lead down to a large swimplatform and with safety rails fitted aft, this becomes another space for guests to relax or as a launch pad for swimming, diving, boarding a tender etc. There's a hot-and-cold transom shower, fold-out steps and a large storage locker built into the transom providing the perfect spot for fenders, fishing gear, water toys or dive gear.

Going forward to the bow, high siderails and wide sidedecks provide safe access to the foredeck, which features a drop-in sunpad with inbuilt adjustable backrest and handy cupholders. There's provision for a dinghy here, too, its cradle is low-profile so with the dinghy removed (via the 350kg davit) the cradle is unobtrusive and out of the way.
The anchor gear, housed under a hatch, has remote foot controls and there's a seawater washdown, but, a clever innovation is the automatic chain spray that washes the anchor chain as it's coming up so no mud and mess finishes up on the boat. Very clever!


The roomy, fully enclosed flybridge is accessed by a moulded staircase from the cockpit. The helm, offset to starboard, provides the skipper with good vision forward and to either side. But it's a bit hard to see aft from here, however, there is a joystick docking control in the cockpit for close-quarters manoeuvring. The dash has ample room for a 12in screen, an array of engine, fuel and water gauges, and a full suite of electronics. This has the makings of an excellent helm but if it were me, I'd change the helm seat, (it isn't height adjustable and looked a bit agricultural for a prestige boat), and relocate the Volvo Penta EVC screen that is partially obscured by the compass.

What I particularly liked was the sporty wheel and the hinged Kevlar facia that can be flipped over for easy access to the rear of the electronics for servicing. The engine controls fall easily to hand along with the joystick, the DC control panel is handily placed for the skipper to access any of the systems he may need underway.

Beside the helm to port, an L-shaped lounge allows family and guests to converse with the skipper, cool drinks and refreshments at hand from the convenient wetbar incorporating removable coolbox, sink, and icemaker. Farther aft, an outdoor area features wraparound seating, which proved popular with those onboard during our test on a bright and sunny day.


Day access to the engineroom is through a floor-hatch adjacent to the galley, with a larger hatch in the cockpit sole for major servicing. There's a lot of gear in here alongside the engines including air-con units, hot-water service, a 14kVa Onan generator, ducted vacuum, batteries and 12V and 24V battery chargers. Everything, though, is easily accessible and clearly labelled.

Engineering is to CE standards and all hoses are double clamped with engraved swing tags. Twin fuel tanks incorporating sight gauges are housed forward of the engines and a third tank is forward and amidships - they all feed into a central manifold for a total of 1892lt in fuel. There are twin fuel filters for each engine, too, and can therefore be changed underway. The 454lt of freshwater is housed in a tank forward of the engineroom bulkhead.


Out on the bay, heading into half-metre chop, we wound the Dyna 52 to WOT and recorded 31kts at 2400rpm. She's very sensitive to tabs, as I found out when I threw her into a sharp turn at nearly full speed, the Dyna leaning heavily into the turn, which I wasn't expecting. Backing the tabs off solved the problem, although it's probably rare you would manoeuvre a boat about as we tend to do on tests. Overall, I found her an easy boat to drive, very sporty, soft riding and, for a big boat, surprisingly fun to drive.

At around 1800rpm with tabs half down produced a nice ride at 19kts using 130lt/h - very acceptable. Ramp her up to 2000rpm, though, and you get 23kts and 148lt/h. It's a higher fuel burn but better efficiency in terms of litres per nautical mile. So at that rate, and leaving a bit in reserve, gives a cruising range of around 260nm. It's not a lot for this size boat but that suits these owners and their style of boating, plus there is the option of fitting larger fuel tanks.

A very easy boat to drive at any speed, even idling out from Docklands along the Yarra River, the Dyna 52 goes where she's pointed. Unlike shaftdrives, where you need water flowing past the rudder to steer, the pods with forward-facing props 'pull' the boat in the direction she's steered, almost carlike.
