Owner – Horace Dodge
The SS-DELPHINE is a classic superyacht owned by Horace Dodge. Dodge is presently an American-owned brand for automobiles. It was previously named Dodge Brothers Company, founded by brothers Horace Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge.
Although they started working for Ford Motor Company for several years, his enthusiasm for yachts and speedboats took over, leading him to establish an extension of their motor company to branch out into a marine division.
He first established a name in the yachting business by engineering his first yacht, the Nokomis, purchased by the government. His last one was the SS-DELPHINE.
SS-DELPHINE boasts a whopping 78.57 meters or 258 feet from end to end, a beam of 10.82 meters or 35.6 feet, and a draft of 6.6 meters or 21.8 feet.
Powered by her extremely powerful motors, she can comfortably cruise at a speed of 9 knots and can go up to a maximum speed of 13 knots.
Despite her weighing approximately 1,255 tons with all the equipment and fuel on board, because of her ginormous 250,000-liter fuel tank and her very efficient power-consumption rate of just 1000 liters per hour, she can easily travel up to 2500 nautical miles at a time.
She was engineered with a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure. And she is super stable when going out to see, thanks to her onboard stabilizer, and is even more stable once she anchors in.
SS-DELPHINE was exteriorly designed by Henry J. Gielow, which was the one responsible for giving her iconic elegant lines. Henry J. Gielow is a famous and renowned exterior designer.
Gielow has been responsible for the design of the El Boughaz I, 53.3 meters long, the Yanbu, which is 50.23 meters long, and the Olympus. SS-Delphine is currently the longest superyacht Henry J. Gielow designed.
