Delphia Yachts, acquired by the Beneteau Group in 2018, presents a new boat, the Delphia 11, a 10.77-meter all-electric cruiser available in Fly and Sedan versions. With a particularly distinguishable look, characterized by a meeting of style and simplicity, Delphia’s latest, 100% electric, is one of the first of a new generation designed primarily for use in inland waters. Whether lakes, canals or rivers, the Delphia serves as an ideal platform for their navigation.

Designed by Tony Castro Yacht Design, the boat is a particularly versatile design, especially in its configurations, which allow for different interior compartmentalization solutions, ranging from 2 to over 6 berths, divided between one and three double cabins. Arrangements regarding amenities and convivial spaces also come in different versions, but most striking is the availability of different exteriors, without flybridge in the Sedan version and with furnished flybridge, in the Fly variant.

Delphia 11 – Exteriors

Regardless of the variant, the Delphia 11 is immediately loaded with an important identity, a clearly recognizable boat with soft, clean lines, underscored by black rubber bands that further enhance its shape, as well as, of course, offering additional protection. From a first glance, the deck spaces look comfortable and airy, with ample freedom of movement and several solutions dedicated to relaxation, such as the forward lounge, equipped with three sundecks in both variants.

There is no shortage of space in the cockpit either, further extended by the swim platform on the water. In fact, in the cockpit we find a sofa and other convivial spaces, partially covered by a top that extends aft, thus introducing the main salon, as well as the first difference between the two variants: in the Fly version, the view of the salon is reduced, thus leaving room for the Flybridge access ladder.

In fact, the Fly version features an additional layer over the Sedan, which instead of an upper lounge, houses solar panels and fixed racks on the roof. The flybridge of the Fly version, on the other hand, offers a comfortable lounge, complete with accessories and seating to further expand outdoor spaces.

Delphia 11 – Interior

Arranged on two levels, the Delphia 11 first accommodates two distinct areas: an upper living area and a lower area designated for cabins and services. The first, surrounded by large windows, rises at deck level and is accessible directly from the cockpit. This consists of a large convivial space, complete with a C-shaped sofa on the port broadside, a table, a full galley to starboard, and a command station.

Continuing toward the bow, however, leads to the innermost, as well as the most configurable, areas. In fact, as many as three different configurations related to accommodations can be derived here, ranging from a single large double master berth to options with two or even three double cabins. In short, depending on one’s preferences, two to six beds are available, provided certain other spaces are sacrificed accordingly. The same applies to services, which can be increased from 1 to 2 as needed.

Designed primarily for inland water navigation, of course, the Delphia 11 has dimensions designed specifically to be comfortable and manageable precisely in spaces that may, at times, be shallower or narrower. Indeed, the dimensions (10.77 x 3.85 m) reflect this philosophy well, offering maximum space in a small but still generous size. The draft also reflects this intention, limiting itself to only 0.8 m, a solution that necessarily makes up for space in height, measuring about 2.75 meters from the waterline in the Sedan variant, up to 2.95 (with the Fly seats down), in the Fly variant, thus also allowing passage under many of the bridges and airways found in central and northern European canals. In terms of propulsion, the electric motorization present is equivalent to 80 horsepower, guaranteeing speeds suitable to meet the limits and requirements precisely, of inland waterways.
