Sailboat Delphia 40 2005

[bws_pdfprint display=”pdf,print”]


A brief description of Delphia as a manufacturer.
Delphia was produced by Poland’s leading boat manufacturer Delphia Yachts. It became known early on for its high quality in every detail. Well-built, fast and strong hull where all the bulkheads and fittings that were connected to the hull were plasticized. This, combined with a high-quality plywood quality, which gave the boat extra strength, were some of Delphia’s success factors. Masts from Selden, engines from Volvo Penta, winches from Lewmar and a highly professional electrical system were also part of the brand’s added value.
When the boats were launched in Scandinavia in 2006, sales quickly picked up speed thanks to a competitive price. A low-cost boat with a quality comparable to Swedish-built boats. For a few years, about 150 boats were sold and in 2010 the crisis in 2008 also became noticeable for Delphia. With the clearly lower volume, it became difficult to develop new models to keep up with the competition.
This resulted in Beneteau taking over the business in 2018 to access efficient production and highly knowledgeable staff.
There was no more room to manufacture high-quality boats at low prices and it was decided to close down Delphia’s sailboat production.
Buying a used Delphia is still a very good deal. You get a fast safe boat that still lasts for many more years.

Sailboat Delphia 40

A well-built stable and fast sailing sailboat, with good cruising properties and easy to row. It was built in Poland by the leading shipyard at the time. The success of the boat is due, in addition to the properties, to the fact that it is a quality construction that can well be compared with Swedish-made boats.

Nice floor plan, very good kitchenette, large lounge and spacious cabins make it easy to live on board. The standing height in the salon is also impressive, over 2.1 m.

Seldén’s rolling mast and Furlex for the jib make sailing easier and safer. The large engine of 55 hp and the efficient Gori propeller give her very good speed when the wind does not help. Easy to maneuver in port also with the help of a powerful bow thruster.

Home port

An owner who at the time of the purchase had terminated his employment as a fisherman and moved to work for a technology company and then be responsible for service on board one of the ferries between Trelleborg and Germany. The owner has a broad technical knowledge and an ambitious accuracy has meant that his sailboat is also very well maintained.

Our representative Torbjörn was the one who originally sold the boat to him and now handles its sales. Feel free to call him for more info on 070-51 70 345. He knows more than anyone else about Delphia.
