A History of Identification
When Willy and Heinz Dehler first decided to construct boats in the middle of Germany’s industrial melting pot Ruhrgebiet 50 years ago, they would never have depicted the impact of their endless emphasis in creating first class boats onto the world of yachting. Steel mills and heavy industry dominated the area and its labour back then. Not an easy venture to make big labour hands treat a fragile component such as GRP into the shape earlier imagined.
Maybe it is just the workforce being used to hard work, being able to imagine a perfect creation paired with a heart breaking identification with the product that made Dehler so successful throughout the times. One does not know! A truth on its own though is the product itself. Dehler boats have made owners around the world a happy and proud family that all share a common idea: Being on water with a boat that breathes the spirit of 50 years of German engineering abilities and testing history on the toughest race courses available. Dehler, identify with quality!
Dehler 41 For those who demand both performance and elegance all in one
A truly versatile breed
Newest design criteria and methods were used by judel/vrolijk & Co. design to shape the new Dehler 41. The main task was to create a yacht that could easily be used for top level IRC and ORC racing as well as for elegant cruising. Sleek lines, light and narrow appendices were the outcome of the design approach making the Dehler 41 so appealing to the eye. Different keel configurations are of course available so are optional rig materials. In combination with our dearest values in boat building, we created a true and elegant classic. Classic not in its looks or sailing capabilities, but classic how she follows a long tradition of elegant and easy to handle sailing yachts made by Dehler. A modern deck layout with double wheel steering, a roomy cockpit and the possibility to open the transom are just a few details that make this a truly versatile yacht.
Excellent sailing capabilities
Her steep appendages create room for both crew and material. This results in double transom cabins with enough head space or in a single port cabin with access through the bath if needed. The lavish bow cabin with her roomy cupboards will please any future owner. On board the Dehler 41 the navigator’s seat with its adjustable table has been moved to port. The galley and the L-shaped sofa are placed to starboard. By this we received a clever space concept and perfect weight distribution of the boat.
