by Delta Marine and Tom Stringer Design Partners

The joy of sailing the seas and exploring deserted beaches, avoiding crowded ports in favour of less travelled routes, enjoying the destinations and the journey itself. The interiors, designed by Tom Stringer Design of Chicago, convey this existential feel, capturing its essence in contemporary design with a casual elegance that stand out from the stifling boredom of monotony. Delta, an American shipyard with its headquarters in Seattle, WA, builds yachts for the most demanding owners. It has its own team of naval architects and marine engineers who work with experienced, specialist technicians to combine traditional workmanship with high technology. Continuing its quest for luxury, elegance and perfection, Delta announced the delivery of its new yacht slojo in spring of this year. slojo is styled with a classic American style, with her hull painted a smart flag blue.
Designed with light displacement and a small draught for navigating in the shallow waters of her planned destinations, slojo is nevertheless ready to take on adventurous transoceanic cruises.
Her Owner’s specifically requested that the interiors include warm, cosy social spaces, and slojo has a casual elegance that deliberately shies away from sumptuous opulence, creating the perfect backdrop for fun and entertainment in the company of family and friends. The talent of the yard and designers is proven by the fact
that slojo began sailing on the very day she was delivered, and embarked upon a circumnavigation.
