Description: Deltacraft Islander
Deltacraft Islander 5.7 MK 11, offers reasonable cabin accommodation for live-aboard comfort in a smaller length and at an affordable price.
The Deltacraft is not only designed to be low maintenance but very inexpensive to run with fuel consumption in the order of only 5 litres for three and a half hours running time. In fact the fuel consumption of the Deltacraft is so low that with average weekend use you may only need to fill the tank up once every month. It is worth noting that the fuel consumption on most fast sports, or day cruisers, of this size is anywhere from five to seven times as much in average running time, so the long-term saving in cost with the Deltacraft can be quite significant as the seasons roll by.
Galecraft, who designed and built the Deltacraft, certainly have done their homework with this family cruiser. They based the design on an earlier proven design, but with a lot more hull buoyancy and a lot of attention to the interior design they have achieved a boat that can fill the following six requirements:
Traditional displacement launch with styling that won't date.
Offshore fishing or short coastal passage maker.
The features which make the Deltacraft appealing for cruising include a lockable cabin with standing headroom, proper galley with sink and stove, toilet compartment with shower, pressure water system and sleeping accommodation able to handle the average "nuclear family'' of Mum, Dad and two kids.
As standard, the cabin provides a dinette which is part of a large V-berth formation. For sleeping the dinette converts into a double berth and there is a small single alongside for a child. Alternatively, sleep two kids on the cushioned cockpit settees.
The Volvo power plant of a Volv0-D20 steams along right on her theoretical hull speed limit of 12kph.

The covered cockpit in effect doubles the cabin area and combines nicely with the hinged teak boarding platform at the transom.
In cold or wet weather you could keep the side curtains down and be able to hop from the dinghy, over the stern, straight into the shelter of the cockpit.

The cockpit is self-draining.
The cabin itself is two steps down from the cockpit and provides a fibreglass galley unit on the port side and fibreglass toilet booth to starboard. There is 1.87m (6ft 2in) headroom right on the centreline of the cabin and this falls away to 1.82m to the sides (as in the toilet ).

Considering the size of the boat, the interior is really impressive. The dinette can seat up to six by extending the seats and it can convert to a reasonably comfortable double berth.
There are upholstered backrests in the cabin and the large one-piece furniture mould which takes in all the bunks and galley unit provides storage bins under the bunk seats as well as shelves outboard.
A fibreglass headliner plus interior mouldings make for an easy-to-clean interior.
