For sale is our classic Ray Wright designed Delta speed boat. Year of manufacture is thought to be around 1970. The Delta is a development from the classic Albatross aluminium boat and was built when glass fibre started to become popular and had none of the corrosion problems of the earlier Albatross. The Delta was built with the same hull lines as the Albatross.The Albatross had been fitted with the Ford side valve engines of it’s time, the later Delta boats were fitted with a range of ford engines from the 60 / 70’s with considerable more power up to the Ford Essex V6 which was a little extreme in a 4.2 metre boat. This boat has the later Ford Essex V4 2000cc. It is fitted with Weber carb and makes about 95HP which is definitely sufficient.This boat has been repainted with classic white hull and duck egg blue deck and re-upholstered. It is fitted with all the period gauges. Mechanically, the engine runs well and was tested on Lake Ullswater a week ago with no problems. The shaft log has a new seal, prop shaft is true and the bronze prop was refurbished and balanced. The clutch system has new hydraulic cylinder.This is an extremely pretty boat and sounds wonderful through the new twin 2 ” exhausts. During our try out on Ullswater the boat attracted a lot of attention and would be great to attend a classic boat gathering in. The boat includes the trailer which has very good tyres and towed well last week.If you have any questions or want to view the boat, please call me on 07970294825. If you intend to buy, please contact me before payment to discuss, no paypal, thanks.Deposit taken.
