Delta Marines found its start in 1967 when brothers Ivor and Jack Jones founded a shipyard on Seattle’s Duwamish River. Delta Marine’s focus was on building fishing boats capable of handling the rough seas of the Pacific Northwest.
Their success in the fishing sector led to the shipyard building luxury expedition yachts. Owners could explore all the corners of the globe, such as the Pacific Islands and Alaska.
Delta Marine was developing custom superyachts exclusively by the 1990s. They have used the elite craftsmen from their local areas and continue developing and refining their composite yacht construction technology.
The 100m yachts that Delta Marine produces today are among the most beautiful in luxury standards worldwide.
The shipyard still continues as a family-run affair with Ivor’s daughter, Michelle, as Marketing Manager for Delta Marine, her sister Trisha in accounting. Jack Jones’ son, Chris, is in the production department.
DELTA MARINE notable launches
Delta Marine’s prowess in the yacht building industry is apparent with their most notable and custom launches.
The MLR, launched in 2019, is one of these fantastic yachts. The 53m yacht features interior and exterior design from Jonathan Quinn Barnett.
The MARAMA was delivered to her owners in 2008, who proceeded to take her on a three-month exploration of Alaska and its coastline. The voyage totaled 3200 miles. The long-range yacht was the best example of the shipyard’s ability to build comfortable expedition yachts for select clientele.
The 65.5m INVICTUS marked another achievement for Delta Marine as they delivered her in 2013. Delta Marine Group, the shipyard’s in-house design team, developed her exterior styling and engineering, with Diane Johnson Design crafting a luxury interior design.
The Delta Marine continues in its pursuit of developing high-end bespoke yachts for its select clientele.
Their prowess in the luxury yacht industry is cemented by their commitment to high standards of professionalism, dedication to innovation and creativity, and the ability to translate this into stunningly crafted vessels that feature high-end design concepts and state-of-the-art technology.
