Delta Powerboats flagship

Delta Powerboats is a Swedish yacht builder with a proud Scandinavian background. It combines modern

design concepts with unparalleled craftsmanship, resulting in a series of unique luxury sports yachts for

demanding sailors made from 100 % carbon fibre. This extremely strong and lightweight material is 30 %

lighter than fibreglass, providing substantial fuel savings.




The company’s latest design is the Delta 88, the new

flagship of the series. Thanks to its three Volvo Penta IPS

engines, this well-appointed, state-of-the-art boat – in

appearance almost the opposite of a sports yacht – can

effortlessly reach speeds of 38 knots while remaining

easy to manoeuvre thanks to its lightweight carbon

construction. The yard demanded that all on board

systems be of an equally high quality, which is where

Mastervolt came into play. As well as sharing Delta’s love

of innovation, our CZone system is the only truly integrated

solution for digital switching, control and monitoring that

can be used on a glass bridge installation.

How Mastervolt proved to be the best choice...

The Delta Powerboats system designer wanted a fully

digital power system that could easily be updated and

checked via the internet. Another requirement, as befits

this premier class, was the possibility to fully automate the

system via programmable events. One example is setting

the generator to automatically start when the batteries are


In addition, the system had to be fully accessible for

operation and control via a glass bridge and iPad

interface. The prestigious Showboats International

magazine dedicated a noteworthy article to this system,

writing: “While not the first boat to use iPads to control

temperature and lights – or check fuel and water levels –

this boat has an iPad Pro integrated right into the console.

Smart systems include trim tabs for a bit of extra lift aft,

a gyrostabilizer for comfort and the CZone monitoring

system by Mastervolt.”

Mastervolt Finland was responsible for the comprehensive

energy plan and the installation of 11 Lithium Ion batteries,

four sine wave inverters, two Combis, six battery chargers

and an extensive CZone system with more than 75

components! A year after installation everything is working

to the users’ full satisfaction. We are still very proud of the

commission and the end result, which turned out to be a

very prestigious vessel.
