The Delta 88 Carbon Sport Yacht (above) is the flagship for Delta Powerboats, the Swedish builder offering spirited performance and carbon fiber construction. Delta Carbon Yachts, the Americas importer, is now under the management of YachtCreators, for further expansion.
YachtCreators is a Fort Lauderdale-based firm working with owners, builders, and other industry companies in not just buying and selling yachts, but also establishing brands. With Delta Carbon, it is overseeing sales and promotion for the full yacht line. Besides the above-mentioned Delta 88 Carbon, that line includes a 26 Open dayboat, 33 Coupe, and other sub-superyacht models. Delta’s chief designer Lars Modin infuses a Scandinavian aesthetic as well as strong performance and fuel economy into each yacht.
Chapman Ducote, who founded Delta Carbon Yachts, remains involved, in an ambassador role. “This partnership leverages the Delta Carbon brand for massive expansion in the Americas,” he says. That’s been “a top priority for us all along,” he adds.
Barin Cardenas, founder of YachtCreators and now CEO of Delta Carbon Yachts, echoes this. He further says, “The goal here is to earn brand growth by providing an exemplary ownership experience.” Since today’s buyers are experience-driven, Cardenas explains, it’s vital to make their entire learning, buying, and cruising progression more in line with that. He points to Delta Powerboats track record so far. “Delta Powerboats has successfully delivered hundreds of their sub-40-foot models and dozens of their carbon fiber series,” he says. “This is the type of consistency that our industry rewards.”
Two of those carbon fiber yachts—specifically, Delta 88 Carbon models—are in North America, in fact. In addition, hull number four of the series is coming stateside this year. She’ll premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October. Her triple Volvo Penta IPS propulsion package pledges a 39-knot top speed. Plus, she’s suitable for owner-operators, or those of you who prefer a small crew. The layout comes standard with accommodations for two crewmembers, plus eight people in the owners’ party.
