Delphia 29







Yesterday I featured a wooden, shallow draught sailing yacht. Here is another shallow draught yacht, but, being constructed in GRP, she is completely different in style and structure. Luxury, quality and performance are her key features.

This up-market 28’ 2” LOA yacht is for sale on the books of Clarke and Carter at Burnham-on-Crouch Yacht Harbour. She was built in 2007, and she complies with the European Recreational Craft Directive as a category B vessel, classifying her as being suitable for offshore waters.  Her lifting keel and special foredeck ‘A’ frame mast lowering system gives her the added advantage of also being suitable for inland waterways.

According to your tastes, she’s the sort of yacht you either love or hate. If you are a traditionalist, you’ll hate her and if you are a modernist, you’ll love her. Whatever camp you find yourself in, you cannot deny her practicality.

LOA: 28' 2"
Beam: 9' 8"
Displacement: 4000 kilograms
Min Draft: 2' 0"

Hello Bill, lovely boat, but the price is staggering. No denying the practicality though, with the lifting keel and sugar scoop stern.
