    Default Re: The Refit of a Delta 88 Carbon Sport Yacht/Superyacht

    Glad to hear all that. The boat does indeed appear to run in an amazing way including 20kts ++ at 9 litres/mile.

    My thoughts were to cut/shut remake the flybridge mould tool to take the dash forward (where the glass roof is) and take the act overhang much further aft to the transom, then fit a carbon hard top instead of bimini. And add a forward staircase from just forward of the galley up to the fly, and change the crew cabin ladder into a staircase. But if the boats are selling well as is, the shipyard is not interested, which is fair enough I guess!

    I saw a d88 in Antibes for a few weeks last summer, on the Capitainerie Quai. I guess that was yours. Nice looking machine.

    We typically cruise at 27kn using 10 liters/nm.

    I defer to your experience on the flybridge. In 2 years we have never opened the glass roof or even their shades.

    Wasn’t able to spend much time in SoF, boat transport was late and I had some conflicts. Hope to be back in 2020 or 2021.

    I must have got the wrong end of the stick with my pay grade, then. I can post pics, but I couldn't even think of buying a D88...

    I suspect NYboater really meant "below his pay grade"!
