Remarks:

Following on from the success of the earlier Albatross, the Ray Wright Delta speedboat was designed in the 1960s with a slightly longer hull to provide more cockpit and engine space and also greater stability at speed, with high speed handling further improved on the later examples (such as the one for sale here) by the addition of water filled sponsons. Built initially in aluminium, they were later produced in GRP, and proved a popular and practical ski and sports boat.

This GRP Delta speedboat was purchased by the current owner just last year and has since been used on Ullswater in the Lake District (where she apparently caused quite a stir, thanks to her awesome sounding engine!). She benefits from a number of recent upgrades and improvements and is understood to be in lovely condition throughout. Complete with road trailer and a good engine which we’re told runs well and sounds great!

Currently lying on her trailer at the vendor’s home in Preston, Lancashire and ready for viewing and/or collection.

Please note: This vessel does not have a current Boat Safety Scheme certificate (due to not having been used of recent on any water that require BSS certification). The photos show the vessel in 2021.
