2011 Delphia 40.3 For Sale - SOLD

Updated: Feb 3, 2023

The Delphia 40.3 is currently the second largest vessel in the Polish-built Delphia range of offshore cruising yachts. With a three-cabin layout the boat provides truly comfortable accommodations for spending extended periods of time afloat. The rig and fine hull form also provide excellent sailing performance.

Boat was commissioned 2011 by Vira Yachting which is the offical dealer of Delphia yachts here in Turkey. She was sold to her second owner after one and a half year at the boat fair. The second owner who was a well knowen business man used the boat slightly for five years at the agean sea. Boat was sold the current owner in 2018. We can say that third owner did not use the boat much, too.

Delphias are built to Germanischer Lloyd’s exacting quality standards and are conventionally laid up by hand with a solid polyester laminate below the waterline that is twice as thick around the keel area. The topsides and deck are cored with Airex foam for lightness. The rig is 7/8ths fractional, which keeps the headsail manageable and allows the backstay to be tensioned to flatten the mainsail when beating.

The Boat’s cockpit is spacious. Teak inlays on the seats and sole lend her a classy air. Bimini and the sprayhood are new. There are new sun covers around the bimini.

Deck gear is sturdy and well organized, with most control lines leading via clutches to a pair of Harken 40 winches (one of them electrical) on the coachroof. The genoa sheets run to a pair of Harken 50 primaries on the coamings beside the helm. Seating is comfortably angled for security underway, and a foot bar at the bottom of the cockpit table provides excellent support. There is a shallow locker on each side—one containing a vented gas compartment —and two full-depth lockers aft. The helm seat drops down neatly to create a walkway aft to the boarding platform. Twin wheels are also available.

Side decks are slightly angled, helping you to negotiate them more easily when heeled, and the molded non-slip is good—wet or dry. Chainplates and genoa tracks are tucked well inboard, leaving the decks unobstructed. The foredeck is spacious, making anchoring handling hassle-free. The boat’s deep anchor well also houses the windlass, so nothing protrudes above deck to catch the bowman unawares. The pulpit includes a step for boarding when berthed bow-to.

Boat’s “raised saloon” style coach roof with large windows and hatches follows the modern trend. The layout of the three cabin models includes the fairly conventional dinette and linear galley arrangement popular on charter yachts. By the help of telescopic legs of the table, you have chance to convert the table easily in to double bed.

The saloon is pleasantly woody, without being gloomy, and headroom is 198 cm. There are numerous handrails to grab under way and plenty of stowage all round in deep lockers and bins. There is room for six to eat together at the saloon table without a crush.

The boat’s forward-facing chart table is a bit small, but keeps the business of navigation clear of the living quarters. The hinged electrical panel is of good quality with gauges to aid fault-finding. There’s also room for instruments on a hinged console, and a neat tray for things like pens and dividers.

Both heads have generous headroom and are fully molded “hose-down” style units that are easy to keep clean. One of them is operated with electricity. Our boat had the three-cabin layout, with the ensuite owner’s cabin forward, boasting a generous V-berth, large dressing area and an en-suite head. The berths in the aft cabins are spacious as well.

The boat is for sale from third owner. New bottom paint applied on 08 May 2022. New propeller installed. Asking 120k€. She is ready for sailing. She will be delivered at sea. Please do not make offers before seeing the boat. The boat can be seen by appointment at the working hours of the week except Sundays. Feel free to see picture and videos below.
