A 208’ steel hulled luxury expedition style motor yacht which is of ice-class is currently being built at America’s Delta marine shipbuilding company.

‘Delta Marine, located in Seattle, Wash, has recently expanded and opened a new metal hull facility, Delta North, designed for metal hull construction for vessels well over 300’.

Delta’s current 25-acre facility, which recently completed a three-phase expansion, constructed composite hulls; the shipyard subcontracted out all metal hull construction (including Laurel, the largest yacht built in the U.S. in 75 years to date.)

This could result in production delays, as local shipyards with metal hull capabilities are primarily dedicated to commercial and military vessels and very busy.

The new, fully enclosed space allows Delta to build their steel hulls in-house, apply their own creative initiatives and better control production schedules.

Delta North, located three miles downriver from the main facility, was previously used for commercial shipbuilding and has been renovated to meet modern metal fabrication requirements.

Delta North’s expert metal vessel construction team is already busy with a project currently underway, a 208’ steel hull, ice-class expedition yacht.

Hull construction is well advanced, but the composite superstructure can still be highly customized according to owner requirements. Delta Design

Group’s proposals range from a sleek superstructure with wrap around windows to an expedition profile featuring helicopter pad, hanger and refueling capability.

Flexible interior and superstructure design options configure the yacht to the specific requirements of the client, whether for cruising, global exploration, or remote oceanographic research.’

Fuel: 51,300 Gal. • Water: 12,300 Gal. • Maximum speed: 16.6 knots
