Third Delta 88 superyacht delivered to US owners
by Cecile Gauert
The third hull in the Delta 88 superyacht series has been delivered to her American owners, who plan to spend the summer season cruising in Europe.
She is due to arrive in Florida in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November, where she’ll stand out with her distinctive and fresh styling by Lars Modin.
Hull number four in the series, currently under construction at Delta Powerboats' Sweden HQ, has also been sold to an American owner.
These are exciting times for Delta Powerboats America’s director, and occasional author of ShowBoats International’s The Way I Sea It column, Chapman Ducote.
“The interiors on this boat are spectacular,” he says. “The engineering savvy and forward-thinking boaters will begin seeing more of our yachts in the US and I just hope we can keep up with growing demand! This is a problem worth having and a foreseeable future we are ready to take on.”
The Delta 88, an all-carbon yacht, is light, fast (with top speed in the high 30s thanks to its Volvo Penta IPS pod drives) and fuel-efficient. A smart layout and small engine room allow for four cabins, including a full-beam master suite on the lower deck, with enough space for two crew cabins with bunkbeds and a crew mess.
The main deck is dedicated to the saloon, dining and an open galley, with access to the bridge a few steps above it. All the bridge information can be displayed on the compact helm station on the flybridge deck, attractively laid-out for private outdoor dining and sunbathing.
