The new Delphia 31 was explicitly developed as yacht that’s easy to handle at all times and in all conditions. The Polish yard of Delphia Yachts positions it as an entry-level boat for families with kids to spend worry-free time on the water.
The high stability of this Andrzej Skrzat design should provide safety, maneuverability and comfort for up to six people in all kinds of sailing conditions. The self-bailing cockpit remains open at the stern, but can be secured with high and stable lifelines. A swim platform facilitates easy access to the water.
The sail options for the Delphia 31 include either a genoa with a small overlap or a self-tacking jib. Both come standard with roller furling. There are also two options for the rig, either with an in-mast roller furling system or a tabernacle for lowering and raising the mast. The boat is offered with a retractable centerboard for variable draft from 0.45 to 1.65 metres for shallow-water venues or with a fixed keel and 1.85 metres of draft for ocean sailing.
The interior features full cruising comfort with up to six berths in separate cabins and in the saloon. In addition there’s a pantry, a nav station and a lavatory with optional shower. Panoramic windows will create a bright and friendly atmosphere below. Tank capacity is 150 litres for water and 100 litres for fuel while the standard propulsion system is a Volvo Penta 18hp diesel.
The pricing for the Delphia 31 has yet to be announced, but it can be expected that Delphia will stick to its strategy and offer the boat at an attractive price. It will be shown for the first time at the show in Düsseldorf from Jan 21 to 29.
