The super-modern Delta Carbon 54 is a fast, efficient cruiser from Sweden that’s made with infused carbon fiber for strength and light weight. The three-stateroom, two-head yacht with its distinctive angular profile tops out at 37 knots with twin 600-hp Volvo IPS800 pod drives; dial back to 7.5 knots, and the range is about 2,200 nm.
Delta Carbon Yachts are part of Delta Powerboats, started in Stockholm in 2002. They have built more than 600 boats from 25 to 88 feet. In 2010, the company started Delta Carbon Yachts; at the time, it was the only company to make production yachts using carbon fiber in both the hull and superstructure. Delta Carbon now makes 54-, 60- and 88-foot models.
The 54 is made for long-range cruising, with a deep-V hull and its vacuum-infused carbon fiber/divinycell/vinylester construction. The interior lines are clean and straight, and there are windows all around, plus a retractable sunroof, to let in lots of natural light. A door next to the helm on the starboard side gives easy access to the deck for help with lines and docking.
A Volvo IPS joystick at the helm makes easy work of docking or low-speed maneuvering. And a standard Seakeeper gyro stabilizer provides a comfortable ride even in choppy conditions.
The Delta Carbon 54 has three staterooms and two heads on the lower accommodation deck. The master is forward, with a king-sized bed, two ottomans, his-and-hers wardrobes and an en suite head. The guest cabin on the starboard side has two twin beds; the cabin on the port side has a queen bed. They share the second head.
The salon is spacious, and the galley is fully equipped for cruising. The Scandinavian interior is impeccably finished; the teak has eight coats of varnish, and the yacht has a solid teak sole.
For power, the twin IPS800s are standard, although the boat comes with three 435-hp IPS600s as options. Top speed with the three is 39 knots.
