Delta Marine announces new 53m superyacht project

Delta Marine announced this week that it is currently underway with construction on a new 53m superyacht project. 

Commissioned by an American pair and currently known merely as ‘project 174046’, the American shipyard’s latest high-performance motor yacht will be finished in ‘true Delta style’, with an aluminium hull and lightweight composite superstructure.

Seattle-based designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett was contracted from the start of the project and was responsible for the interior design. He had previously collaborated with the late Bill Langan on the exterior design of a well-known Delta build, Silver Shalis.

A specific request from the clients included the need for a shallow draft that would allow the yacht access to their favourite cruising grounds in the Bahamas and Caribbean Sea.

Jay Miner, chief naval architect at Delta, said: “Jonathan Barnett’s exterior styling gives a fresh and forward look to a proven hull design. Not only does the design manage to maintain its sleek shape in profile and elevations, it provides superior glazing dimensions for unobstructed sightlines — something quite unique when considering the interior volume and open deck viewing spaces with windbreaks.”

Delta Marine will be displaying a model of the project at this week’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
