The 26m carbon fiber yacht belongs to my personal favorite yachts. It comes with a masculine workboat look without losing a yacht look. It is equipped with three Volvo Penta IPS 1200 diesel engines to power her up to 37/38 knots.
“It is with great pleasure we announce that we have added a dream to our product portfolio – a 26-meter yacht built from carbon. We have been working over two years to complete the project, and it is with pride we now are able to present the result”
says Kalle Wessel, sales manager at Delta Powerboats in Sweden.
During the first sea trial from Estonia to Stockholm, the log of the Delta 88 measured a top speed of 37 knots, and the fuel consumption around 40 % less than the competitors.
Mr. Wessel continuous:
“The aim has been to maintain the core values of the Delta brand and build the most beautiful, most fuel efficient and most intelligent boat on the market. And the fact that hull number two is already in production indicates that we are on the right track aiming to create something special”.
Owner of the Delta shipyard, Lennart Alpstål explains:
”The task of building a boat of this size was a real challenge, and to succeed we had to start from the base. We had to rebuild the factory and hire newly skilled boatbuilders, technicians, and talented craftsmen in various skills to achieve a perfect result. The entire production is adapted for paying attention to environmental considerations. All boats are manufactured using vacuum infusion to get them equally strong and light, and on top, both Delta 54 IPS and the Delta Yacht are built from carbon fiber”
The price for the Delta 88 IPS is about 7,000,000 EUR.
