Review: Delta's 154' "Mr. Terrible"

 
 
Review Tools Rate Review
This unique small bar on the aft deck overlooks the stern area, but offers its own strictly private, cozy gathering place. All done in light grained woods with discreet overhead star-lights and leather-upholstered stool seating.
A whimsical approach extends even to Mr. T’s galley, with a lightness prevailing in the black/yellow food prep area. However, fixtures and implements, appliances are all first class, up to date in a space designed for convenience as well as capacity, with double freezers, excellent lighting, and roominess for the chef and attendants.
On the main deck Owner’s Suite, a skylight is designed after a chambered nautilus, in dichroic fused glass. Its luxurious carpet echoes coral branches highlighted against a white sand sea floor, as viewed through a rain forest canopy; the Polynesian theme expands. The beam-wide sanctum’s lushness extends its magic to a raised king-size berth and dramatic headboard. Wall sconces are inspired by equatorial island cacti.
This double-wide dresser is an entree to the Owner’s bath, forward, which also extends to a beam-wide area comprising his/hers facilities. Woods are laser-cut European Pear veneer. Vanities are bamboo weave pattern. Its inner sanctum provides an over-sized granite tub and mosaic tile shower.
Just slightly less luxurious than the Master’s, the two VIP staterooms offer walk-around queen berths, plus upholstered seating and a writing desk, vanities, individual reading lamps overhead, and walk-in closets. The sinks are wenge wood sculptures, with wonderfully embossed back splashes.
This guest stateroom, one of four, offers a queen-size berth. Set on sand-colored, embossed carpet, the raised walk-around berths sport woven bamboo above the headboard, while the surrounding walls are paneled in figured Koa veneer.
Guest baths are modeled after the Owner’s, featuring Koa veneer with ultra-modern raised wooden bowls, and accent walls of black mosaic tile, with an inset tub. Floors are bleached teak. Notice the backsplash mounted faucet fixtures.
In Mr. T’s massive engine room, the twin MTU 16V4000 Engines are set to deliver 3650 BHP @ 2100 rpm. However, more surprises; it is immediately apparent this owner reveres engines as fine objets d’art – undoubtedly a paean to his automotive expertise. This is more than just an engine room....
At the owner’s direction, the builder has detailed large components in fine fashion by fairing, even chrome plating. For instance, manifolds for fuel, bilge and some other systems sport 316-grade stainless steel. Valve bodies and handles are mirror polished; this is propellant machinery elevated to the level of classic car models. And, when asked, Mr. T turns it on, at 23 knots.
With her unique approach centering around a playful use of Koa, a Hawaiian wood veneer, with hardwoods and rattan, bamboo, tropical patterns, custom inlaid with natural tropic tones set against bright florals, stretched hides and aquatic ornamentals emitting a Polynesian essence, this yacht remains distinctively Delta and a marvel of creativity.

It’s no small wonder that Mr. Terrible has garnered so many illustrious prizes and
international acclaim, despite his (her) confounding but oh so clever,
sleight-of-hand name. Perhaps it should be reconsidered, to ...

Mr. Wonderful?
