Project: Delta 48 Coupe

Ever since Delta Powerboats was introduced in Sweden in 2003, the name has been associated with efficient hydrodynamics, authentic craftsmanship and advanced technology integrations. The new Delta 48 Coupé is no exception, rather the ambition to capture the very essence of sleek, versatile and energy efficient sports cruiser made of carbon fibre the Swedish name has build its reputation on. As the latest result of the Lar Modin and Mannerfelt design partnership, the 48 benefits from the experience of previous projects and combines features from both the Open and Coupé series.  The Delta 48 Coupe will feature generous deck arrangements allowing guests to enjoy multiple exterior lounges and sun beds or seek shelter within an enclosed saloon with panoramic all around views. Sliding aft and side doors blur the boundaries between the inner and outer decks and due to the large electrical roof top the 48 easily adapts to changing weather. Below deck the interior accommodates six guests across three cabins where the owner occupies a forward master stateroom with generous storage and an en-suite bathroom.  Delta 48 Coupé features an all new twin stepped-bottom, designed to reduce friction, deliver speed and a consistent plane with less pitching. In the construction, only advanced carbon fibre composite materials are used, making the hull strong, stiff and impact resistant and keeps the weight of the vessel low, which further reduces engine load and  fuel consumption. The Delta 48 Couple is to be powered with either twin Volvo 440hp inboard sterndrives diesels, and or Mercury 600hp outboards petrol gas.  Estimated top speeds are up to 45 knots and a cruise of 32 giving only three litres per nautical mile from the twin Volvo diesels.
