The name stands for Speed and Quality, an addition that the shipyard used in earlier times when it still existed independently in the Sauerland. Most of the modifications are aimed at a lighter interior: Larger hull windows for more light below deck and a more modern look, lighter surfaces in the expansion, one more window in the superstructure, plus a larger sofa port on request, but the navigation table is then omitted.

A solid GRP bowsprit and a lighter stern platform with an improved bathing ladder are obvious changes on the outside. The boat is still available in the so-called competition version, which offers five square meters more. A carbon rig is possible. The competition main is now designed as a Fathead, then the rig is driven with split eight stays. The sails are now from Quantum. The Fathead is optionally available for the normal rig.
In 2012, the Dehler 38 was the first model since the shipyard was taken over by Hanseyachts AG. The boat was able to win the coveted title of Europe Yacht of the Year and subsequently various other prizes; it's one of the best-selling performance cruisers in recent years. The Dehler 38 SQ starts with a base price of 191,471 euros (including 19 percent VAT) and is therefore just under 6,000 euros more expensive than the previous model.
