    Thanks everyone for your kind words. I'm glad I was able to capture the essence of the 54 at night amidst the boat show. It really is a pretty yacht.

    Thanks, but the 26 is not an inhouse design, although it shares many of our design elements.

    Hi, back from the testing now and it was a success. We have not yet decided how much we will show and tell about the result, but we are all very happy with the feeling and the figures...:)

    BTW, this teaser picture is taken with my new iPad mini...

    Cool pic Lars. Did you get many strange looks when you went out for the sea trials?

    It is triple IPS/1200. And to Carelm, there are not many around in the Baltic this time of the year, but of course a few people from the builder was there to see it.

    I'm guessing they are staggered for access and fitment, rather than straight across.

    They are on the same line, but the mid engine is a bit lower. There is a lot of space all around them. At least before we put the tender garage in. But this can easily be removed for major works.

    So I was going through the Delta Powerboats website from our banners here on YF and I noticed what I thought was a nice photo on their front page...

    Will there be a mini Delta tender onboard the new Delta 80?

    Sometimes you will see well designed yachts with an ugly rib tender on the back and I find that such a shame to the design.

    For instance with Kinetic yachts they have a little version as a tender.

    In the garage there will be a Williams 385 RIB with waterjet and the first boat will have an extended swim platform with a Yamaha Waverunner monster...

    We could also build a mini Delta, but it will probably be five times more expensive so it is not really worth it.
