Delta has recently announced a construction of the new superyacht – Project 174046. The high-performance motor yacht will be built with an aluminium hull and a composite superstructure, which was one of the main requirements by the owners. Another very important feature was a shallow draft to be able to cruise around the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Famous designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett was responsible for exterior and interior design one the superyacht. Hence, the new Project has been design with a semi-displacement hull form allowing a shallow 7.7.-foot draft that provides an increased tank capacity, improved powering efficiencies and eco-friendly characteristics.
Due to a careful management of the hight of decks, the superyacht will feature spacious interior layout and maximised 10-metres beam and still maintain a low, sleek and aerodynamic profile.
Spacious interior layout will be able to accommodate up to 12 guests over six rooms, including a bridge-deck VIP and a full-beam master suite on the main deck. An emphasis will be put on high ceilings, contrasting surfaces, stones and stunning furnishing.
Exterior deck areas will provide plenty of space for social gatherings and entertainment. Dining-accessible bars, wide lounging areas are offered on each deck. A walk-up teak bar that serves a jetted pool with a mosaic-tile beach section and waterfall will be located on the sun deck.
Powered with twin MTU engines and a 24,900 USG fuel capacity, this high-performance superyacht will offer long-ante cruising. A retractable stern thruster folds up to be stowed in the hull to provide a smooth running surface, to be able to reduce drag and assists in turning all of that horsepower into speed.
The model of the new superyacht by Delta is on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2016.
