Delta Design Group has announced a new hull design for its 40-meter Onika yacht. The company says its hull will make Onika more fuel-efficient while also letting her travel through shallow waters. By making the yacht more efficient, she can travel greater distances without forcing owners to spend more money on fuel. That's an excellent benefit for anyone interested in saving money and the environment.
Delta's Chief Naval Architect describes the hull as having "round bilges with a bulbous bow and long easy run." These design aspects should make Onika more efficient without altering the yacht's traditional aesthetic. She has a range of 4,000 nautical miles traveling at 12 knots. She has a maximum speed of 16 knots.
Yacht lovers will find other features just as exciting as the newly designed hull. Onika has a central staircase with carved wood handrails and newel posts decorated with metal. The skylounge uses natural materials that have been enhanced by the craftwork of professional artisans. Every aspect of Onika has been carefully planned by Delta.
Delta Design Group is a leader in composite yachting materials. Located in Seattle, its team of naval architects, craftsmen, and naval engineers builds some of the most beautiful high-performance yachts in North America.
