The 30 od is a modernization of the Dehler model series, although the Dehler 29 is still being built, but at the same time it is a bridge to the past. The success of the brand has always had to do with regatta victories, and the success of the SprintSport or DB1 is to be followed by the 30 od as a new offshore unit class. It is designed as a double-hand racer / cruiser, which should also offer a crew of up to six people the most necessary comfort on a vacation trip.
The sporting orientation is based on a circuit in the coastal area such as the Silverrudder, but transatlantic regattas should also be possible. An all-rounder that should combine a lot of speed with comfort. Incidentally, the hull length of 30 feet was chosen to be at the upper limit of a group in the silver rudder, which is a good starting point for a victory.
As it is a one-size-fits-all class, the boat is offered completely, with a carbon fiber mast, keel with aluminum fin and lead bomb, water ballast, bowsprit, interior fittings. In addition to the standard list price of 129,591 euros (including VAT), around 20,000 euros are added for the six-part set of sails, consisting of main and genoa, code zero, staysail and two gennakers - which makes around 150,000 euros ready to sail.

The YACHT accompanies the Dehler 30 od project from the beginning in a multi-part series of articles and reports how a modern, sea-going yacht is created from the design to the manufacture of the molds to the prototype and series production. Project manager Karl Dehler, son of the Dehler founder Willi, and the design office Judel / Vrolijk & Co in Bremerhaven can look over their shoulders and hard drives with astonishing openness.
The first episode can be read in YACHT 8/2019. This explains the concept of the Dehler 30 od, for which target group it is suitable, in which competitive environment it operates. There is also an interview with Karl Dehler. The booklet is available in the DK shop, or you can download the article from the link below
