La Dolce Vita was built in 1987 in Venice, Italy, as a Venetian water taxi. Water taxis are still considered the preferred way of getting around Venice for locals as well as tourists; their design has changed little since the 1950’s. After years of service in Venice, La Dolce Vita was bought as a tender for a mega yacht and found her way to Florida. She was restored there and used on Lake Dora near Orlando. Three years ago her new owner had her shipped to Newport Beach where she happily resides.
