Broker's Comments

“DALVINA” is in every aspect a very special motor-yacht. She is utterly unique, and the result of many evenings stretched over a billiard table with a pencil and rule. Still in the hands of her original Owner, she has been constantly attended to, and has graced the South Coast since her launch on February 1989. Whilst affording the utmost comfort, she is also required to perform; and her fair semi-displacement hull is twinned with her MTU 8V diesels to propel her to 21 knots when called for.


She has benefitted enormously from having the same full-time Skipper for the whole of her life, who knows her every inch. She has been conscientiously maintained to sympathetically preserve her original charm. We note that her main engines were last serviced in June 2015, and her blue hull and topsides paint was new for the 2015 season.

She was cutting-edge in many aspects – with “floating” floors in her accommodation to attenuate vibration and noise, twin boat deck cranes harmonized to their mountings, and balsa-coring used in sandwich to save on weight in her joinery wherever possible.


She will continue to turn heads wherever she drops anchor, and she is a credit to both her Owner and Skipper who have kept her lovingly.

Owner's Comments

“It was in 1984/5 when my wife and I decided that we would like to acquire a slightly bigger motor yacht.  Having done a bit of research as to what was available on the market, we felt that maybe the appropriate thing to do was to build a new vessel from scratch.  Through the good offices of David May, we were introduced to Stephen Wallis of Laurent Giles, who set about the design work. The plan was to build a “silent” motor yacht with lots of insulation and sufficient battery capacity so that when anchored or on a mooring, it was not necessary to run the generators for much of the time.


In May 1987, a contract was signed with the Berthon Boat Company to build the yacht.  She was launched in February 1989 before being commissioned at the end of May of that year.  The first summer was spent sorting out the various teething problems and thereafter Dalvina has been in continuous use, especially during the summer months each year. 


Her main cruising grounds have been the South coast of England and the North coast of France, where we have visited most of the ports and harbours.  We have also had cruises down to the West coast of Brittany, the South coast of Ireland and the North West coast of Scotland. Given that Dalvina was designed with most systems either in duplicate or triplicate, we have always achieved our cruising plans, without any holdups, and many happy times have been had with members of our family and friends on board.”
