Delta Carbon Yachts has welcomed a new model to its Miami-based offerings. Custom designed by Chapman Ducote specifically for the Miami market, the 26 Open Black Edition is the first of its kind to be offered in U.S. waters.
Intended as a standalone weekender or sleek and seaworthy megayacht tender, the 26-footer features a unique multifunctional design intended to maximize entertaining, swimming and sunbathing. The 26 Open Black Edition features open walkaround decks and an elevated foredeck area that allows for a comfortable cabin and head below deck.
A full galley area is ingeniously situated beneath the convertible driver’s seat and a settee and teak table on the aft deck can be transformed into either a spacious lounging area or picnic table at will. The custom Black Edition sports an all-black exterior distinguished by burnt orange Sunbrella upholstery and features a stern anchor for easy sand bar use as well as a hidden bimini top for a quick retreat from the elements.
Powered by a Volvo Penta engine in options of 220, 320, and 380-hp, the 26 Open Black Edition enjoys top speeds up to the 50+ knots. Built at Delta Powerboats’ state-of-the-art facility outside of Stockholm, Sweden, the 26 Open features a twin-stepped deep-v composite hull constructed using the Diab Core Infusion Technology process. Vacuum infusion combined with carbon fiber reinforcements yields high strength, light weight and extreme durability.
“The 26 Open Black Edition is designed to turn heads, whether out for a day cruise or transporting elite guests from a mother vessel to the hottest restaurant in town,” says Chapman Ducote, Delta Carbon Yachts’ Director of the Americas. “Delta Powerboats are known for their superior construction – both in all carbon fiber or reinforced vacuum infused composite – and their seaworthiness. The Black Edition combines beauty, power and a flexible layout to create a truly unique package that has never before been seen in U.S. waters.”
