Drawing of the Dehler 30 od
The long-awaited and therefore all the more exciting moment has come. For months the YACHT accompanied the creation of the new Dehler 30 od, from the first drafts to the construction of the molds to the completion of the prototype. All considerations that led to this unusual boat for Dehler, many discussions and decisions could be followed and documented. But as with every model that is created, this is all gray theory as soon as the hull hits the water for the first time. Only then does the real character appear.
The YACHT was present at the first trial run off Cannes / France and had the opportunity to sail the boat on all courses in 16 to 18 knots of wind, with a sea between waves and swell, so ideal conditions. We were also on board a few weeks later in a very light wind as part of the test drives to Europe's yachts of the year off Barcelona / Spain. So the boat could present itself in a wide wind range.
And how is it sailing now?
The detailed test can be found in YACHT, issue 24/2019. The booklet is available in the DK shop, or you can download the test directly from the link below
