Savage Dolphin

Savage Dolphin with mast and boom

Lodged for Sale - January 2019

I know this is a Deltacraft site, but this boat must be a cousin to the Deltacraft as Steve Leonard did purchase Savage moulds (Forum Page 9 ) from Melbourne as told in this Forum Page 18 and Savage appears for the third time on the Deltacraft Angler page.

It is a very nice boat and you may just know someone who enjoys puttering and sailing and wants a boat, so please guide them to this page.


  • 18’6” - 5.6 metre - Diesel Motor Sailer
  • Savage Dolphin - Name, Horn Blower
  • Beam - 2metres. Draught - 450mm
  • Built 1979.
  • I enjoyed fully restoring my Dolphin over a period of 4 years. Then also launching it and motoring down the river, over the bar and out for a days ocean fishing. When it was time for home I hoisted the sail, connected the auto-pilot and enjoyed the quiet sail home (no engine noise). I have decided that I prefer sailing to motor sailing and am selling the Savage to purchase a pure yacht.

Deltacraft Islander Mark 1 - - Lodged 1st November 2011

On the lift On the lift

These photos were taken the last time she was on the hardstand for antifouling. (about 18 months ago)

She is in a sad condition as I never really had the time to start the refurbishing that she deserves.

The last time the Yanmar 2 cylinder diesel ran, the water pump had frozen (without me knowing) and although it started OK there was a lot of black smoke as the rubber belt heated up. I have a spare motor (in bits) which will go with the boat.

Some of the stainless steel holding the hard-top up had cracked so I took it off and it is resting on the gunwhales at the moment.

It is currently moored at Meadowbank, NSW.

Price - $5,500.00 - Contact phone 04 1827 3777.
