New Model: Delta 54 IPS

Delta launched its new flagship the 54 IPS on the fall of 2010, at the Scandinavia boat show. The 54 IPS designed by Lars Modin as previous Delta's is a model which reflects the continuity of this builder unique working pilot boat looks mixed to that of a fast planning Vee shaped hull, and yacht comfort. The interior layout is in fact a luxurious affair with a three double cabins plan located below decks; with owners suite to fore, and two identical guest cabins to mid ship. Two identical shower heads serve the guests, with the starboard side being an en-suite for the owners room. The main deck is a split level; with the lower part having L-shaped sofa, galley, and fore area having a dining table, and helm station to starboard. The helm also features a direct access door to the all around deck, making single handled manoeuvring easier. Other important features of the 54 IPS are the free space aft deck with no transom bulkhead, hydraulic up and down bathing platform, and the deep bulwark protected all around deck. Construction is also of advanced materials with the Delta 54 IPS having a vacuum infusion sandwich method which makes for a weight of about 14,000 kilograms. Power if from three Volvo's 435hp engines with IPS pods propulsion which should give a 40 knots top speed.
