|NEW BOAT. The Delphia 24 ONE DESIGN regatta boat was developed as a joint venture between the Polish Regatta Association and Delphia Yachts and Powerboats. Designed by the renowned naval architect, Andrzej Skrzat, with the objective of bridging the gap between high performance swing keel boats and fixed keel sports boats. Designed for training and racing, but as a One Design, where every boat is exactly the same therebye raising the skill of the sailors in competition. The result is a yacht that is extremely responsive to the helm, yet its superior stability negates the requirement for trapeze wires. This high performance yacht is made from the highest quality composite materials to ensure maximum performance and durability and its advanced hull design and structure gives it the ability to plane in fresh winds. Its weighted daggerboard ensures stability for controlled sailing in strong winds. The success of this yacht led to the formation of the Delphia 24 Regatta Society in 2006. This is a true International One Design yacht, with every boat being as close to exactly the same as is humanly possible, in both hull and equipment, providing exciting sailing with sailors pitting their skills against each other in matched boats, as well as regatta racing in large fleets. Hull and decks are infusion laminated, coloured white, with blue waterline stripes. Rudder blade is fibreglass and dagger board cast iron. Becoming increasingly popular, the number now competing in Europe is climbing up towards 100, several small fleets in Asia, a 5 in Victoria. As more and more yacht and sailing clubs become interested in OD racing, inter club, state, national and international regattas can be supported with equal and matching boats, sailer against sailer pitting skills against each other.
A tandem trailer has been outfitted with supports to match the hull shape, on adjustable for height supports, and is complete with two long storage bins for sails and gear. The outfit comes with mast supports and everything required to immediately go sailing.
