New Model: Delta 33 Open

In early March 2013, Delta unveiled its second model of the Open family the 33, what the Swedish yacht builder calls a cross over offer of day cruiser, walk around and family boat. The 33 Open is again a design to Ted Mannerfelt who was also responsible for the 26. Delta 33 Open offers great social spaces outdoors in a well-tailored cockpit. Inside the 33 offers an owners cabin in the bow with plenty of stowage space, a toilet with separate shower located on the starboard side, and aft we find a generous mid cabin with two berths. Up on deck we find a well-planned and space efficient longitudinal kitchenette. Aft is dining space for up to ten people. Same seating folds easily into a sun bed and then measure the entire 6 square meters. Delta 33 Open is built with the most modern vacuum technology with vinylester and divinycell using Diab core infusion technology and carbon fibre reinforced floors. In combination with cross step hull shapes Delta is promising low fuel consumption; estimated at 1.6 l nm at 30 knots.
