DADDELDU is a classic sailing yacht, built for high performance, comfort and safety without restraint. She was designed and built with excellence in mind. Her all-teak interior and her spacious deck lend her an atmosphere of unrivaled coziness and "ship-feeling". .
DADDELDU, a Liberty 458 (US name) or Delta 46 (European name) is a centre cockpit cutter sailing vessel based on a design by the famous yacht designer Doug Peterson adapted to the European market by Jörg von Rehden (Berlin Institute for Yacht Design, Germany) in the late 1970’s and for the US by Peter Hoyt (USA) in the early 1980’s.
DADDELDU’s uncluttered deck design allows crew to move freely and safely, with considerable room for lounging, sunning or fishing.
The yachts were built at the Shin Fa yard in Taiwan, which also built the renowned Hans Christian yachts. About 60 units were built, about half of them for the US market and half of them for the European market respectively.
The well designed galley receives the applause of many a hobby chef. It's compact, but not crowded, with space for a gas oven and abundant storage for large pots and pans, dishes and provisions. The double stainless steel sinks are convenient to the dining area and the general layout allows the galley chef to be included in the conversation without being inconvenienced by passing traffic.
DADDELDU’s spacious interior provides an impressive amount of space for living, lounging, dining and sleeping, with unbelievable storage, making her a great live-a-board and off-shore cruiser. Warm polished teak and gleaming brass ports add touches of luxury and elegance in the uniquely designed salon. Lush upholstery invites to time spent watching a movie on the flat-screen TV, listening to music or engaging in some game.
The aft cabin, with its oversized berth, has handsome stern transom windows that provide additional light, creating a pleasing visual effect. The ports on starboard and port and the sizeable hatch allow for excellent cross ventilation.
Two showers, two heads and two fridges enhance the comfort of larger crews and allow for sufficient privacy.
In the spacious front cabin a large hatch provides both light and fresh air.
