World famous Dehler yachts are celebrating their 50th anniversary and are again available in Asia. These truly elegant sport-cruisers have great performance and extremely well thought-out, quality interiors. They are equally at home on the race course or on a relaxed cruise. The entire range is ideal for those who wish to combine comfort, sailing enjoyment and speed, with a sense of security. The combination of German craftsmanship, excellent design and the use of superior materials have ensured consistently high quality.
The Dehler 29, Dehler 32 and Dehler 35 are extremely popular worldwide. The 29 is an exceptional boat for the first-time yacht buyer. It has sparkling performance, a well-fitted, comfortable interior and is a really safe small yacht. The latest two models, the Dehler 38 and Dehler 41 are both designed by Judel-Vrolijk design using the latest thinking and techniques to achieve remarkable boats. The Dehler 38 has been just released.
Besides its outstanding performance, the exterior look is another progressive step from Dehler. New window lines enhance the sporty looks and simultaneously let more light into the cabin. A narrowed walking deck enhances the inner measures of the coach roof resulting in more head room and a wider saloon in her class.
She is available in two versions; standard and competition, the latter includes carbon spars and all the goodies. The Dehler 41 was released in 2012 and her sleek lines have been catching attention ever since. Her spacious cockpit with double wheels enables the crew to function effectively. Below decks she is spacious and planned for perfect weight distribution. She has roomy well fitted cabins, a navigator's seat with its adjustable table to port with the galley and L-shaped sofa to starboard. The sustained quality control of the yachts and their reputation has enabled them to achieve aboveaverage resale prices, after several years of use.
A Dehler is an investment in the future, of secure, lasting value. A bonus for new boat buyers is that Dehler is presently running special 50th anniversary prices.
