The Deltania Group
Deltania 6 (Large)We would like to bring to your attention the DELTANIA GROUP – so called because it operates two DELTANIA 22 sailing cruisers (G1 & G2). These were bought from new and launched in  July 2007 – built in Poland to a German design. They are a comfortable 4 berth, 22-foot sailing cruisers with toilet compartment, sink & cooker. They have auxiliary power from new 6hp Mariner 4 stroke outboard motors & full electronics. They have lifting keels and can be sailed into shallow waters.

Each boat is owned by a syndicate of 8 owners who get regular sailing and largely SP_A0323manage the maintenance. Sailing is generally on the delightful Mar Menor and can be pleasure cruising or SAMM club events. A day out might be a trip to a local island, with a picnic and a swim off the boat, or call in at one of the many marinas for coffee and a snack. Access to the Mediterranean is also possible through the canal at Marina Thomas Maestre, La Manga.

Both boats are moored at Los Urrutias Marina just past Las Alcazares. This is a protected mooring with support facilities. The group is very sociable and often meets for meals and chats. Members often sail together, but family & friends are also welcome. A qualification (ICC,) is necessary and can be arranged locally. Assistance with the training can be provided by the group.  Membership of SAMM also gives access to its lively social scene & support.

Owning a boat like the Deltania would be out of the question for a lot of people – in terms of finance, maintenance & crewing. A boat share spreads the cost of ownership across the group and provides expert knowledge and assistance.  The cost of a share is currently in the region of 2,200 Euros, although currently Gemini Uno (G1) are looking to upgrade their existing boat to a 25-foot type boat with an inboard engine. Efforts to find a new boat are ongoing .. it’s envisaged that a Beneteau First 25.7 or a Jeanneau Sun 2500 would be ideal. Although the  individual share cost of such a boat is currently expected to be in the region of 4,700 Euros, what a boat for your money!
