Rare, High Quality Fast Cruiser!
This quick and agile performance cruiser is rare and hard to find in the US. The 3 cabin, 2 head layout provides comfortable accommodations for extended cruises; the rig and fine hull form also provides superb sailing performance ideal for blue water crossings.
The cockpit is spacious and comfortable. The deck gear is sturdy and well organized, with most control lines leading via clutches to a pair of Lewmar winches on the coach roof. The helm seat drops down neatly to create a walkway aft to the boarding platform. Side decks are slightly angled, helping you to negotiate them more easily when heeled, and the molded non-slip is good—wet or dry. The foredeck is spacious, making anchoring and spinnaker-handling hassle-free. The boat’s deep anchor well also houses the windlass, so nothing protrudes above deck to catch the bowman.
Delphia’s “raised saloon” has large atrium style windows and hatches and follows a contemporary trend. The saloon is appointed pleasantly with teak, but without being gloomy, the headroom is 6ft 6in. There are numerous handrails to grab under way and plenty of stowage all round in deep lockers and bins. Both heads have generous headroom and are fully molded “hose-down” style units that are easy to keep clean.
