The Variant was designed by shipyard founder Willy Dehler in 1967 and then built over 5000 times over many years. It is considered a popular boat that has brought many people to sail, was safe thanks to its floats and large ballast, and had good sailing properties. The cruiser offered space for four people. And with a base price of 20,000 marks, it was cheap. The new boat is a construction by Judel / Vrolijk, which should be just as safe, fast, easy to handle and trailerable. The Dehler 18 is also not more expensive. 10,000 euros is the starting price. The "Boot und Fun Berlin" runs from November 25th to 29th
