Does anybody is familiar with a Delta 46 sailing boat?

I just saw a cutter that is build up in Tawain and is called Delta 46. Can someone help me in knowing something more about the boat and the constructor (Shin-Hsing Ltd)?
Sorry for my poor english and thank you in advance

Re: Does anybody is familiar with a Delta 46 sailing boat?

Anho was my boat. I spent 14 months of my life full time restoring here.I sold it ten years ago and it is now in New Zealand. The blue boat is not Anho.
Few of them are left anywhere.
They had their issues but were great boats.
Am happy to help anyone. I knew Anho inside out.

This boat is Lady S it is in Dominican now. It needs some restoration. The previous owner abandoned her, probably due to the hardship.

You would need to tread carefully. Caveat Emptor and all that. Check for soft decks, dodgy chainplates etc
Chain of title?

Re: Does anybody is familiar with a Delta 46 sailing boat?

I own a Delta 46 (Merluza) built in 1991 . The Delta 46 is best known in USA as Liberty 458, a "cult boat"; Delta 46 type is the european Liberty 458. There are little differences between the european type and the USA type, consisting only in the interior design. Delta had her interior design upgraded by H.S. Ives of Main Cruising Design and J. Von Reden of the Institute of boat design of Berlin. Liberty's interior design was designed by Peter Hoyt. Some Delta yachts are kecht-cutter rigged, others cutter rigged; all the Liberty yachts are cutter rigged. All the boats (28 Delta and 31 Liberty) were built by Shin Fa LTD yard, (one of the best shipyard in Taiwan) for DELTA Marine Gmbh, Germany (type Delta 46) and for LIBERTY Yachts (type Liberty 458). Luxurious interior in solid teck, they are very confortable boat to living aboard. By the proven hull, designed by Doug Peterson (it's the same hull of Kelly-Peterson 44, or 46, I don't remember) they are very good cruisers
