Re: Interesting Sailboats
Delphia Yachts has been on the very top of boat builders from Poland, with numerous awards: Delphia Yachts - Awards
The company has recently acquired Maxi Yachts About - Concept
and Delphia's Saphire 27 won the “European Yacht of the Year 2014” in “Special Yacht” category Saphire 27 - Slip and trail without a crane
The background and reputation is solid, if I recall Dephia also won an award at Chicago Strictly Sail. These are well build modern boats, in my opinion.
I agree with that. Regarding the 40 they have been changing the interior but that hull is old and it is already a bit outdated. The boat has a good B/D ratio for the type of keel and is considered a safe boat.
As you properly know one circumnavigated recently on a non stop attempt. It made the circumnavigation but not really non stop because it hit a submerged object and had to stop to repair the rudder. Otherwise the boat did well.
