Originally Vendetta, CEX Dolce first contested the Hobart in 1990 and finished 49th in IMS. In 1991 she was 10th in IMS and became AHC Hospitals and finished the 1994 race 18th overall, as Computerland, was PHS sixth overall in 1998. Along with Scavenger, Dolce was the first Inglis 47 to launch. Inglis boats are designed for downwind speed and this one was built, owned and raced by Alex and Paul Cittadini. Pierre Gal and Doug Gayford bought it in 2012, and in 2013, revitalised it with a new deck and interior, converting it from a racer to a cruiser-racer. Dolce finished 3rd in Performance Racing at Airlie Beach last year and finished 27th overall in the 2015 Sydney Gold Coast Race. The Cittadinis loaned the mould of this yacht to Grant Wharington to build his first Wild Thing, which took 1990 Melbourne Hobart line honours and race record and went on to race as Wild One.
