Dehler yachts are renowned as cruiser racers which are built to last… and the 32 is no exception. The Dehler 32 was designed by Judel/Vrolijk – a team are hugely experienced in designing performance yachts. They’ve penned a quality yacht for competitive skippers with a comfortable, well-thought out interior.
-Great performance -Excellent value for money -Quality build, fit and finish -Specific option packages -Great racing ergonomics
The Dehler 32 is a fun boat. Whether you choose tiller or wheel steering this yacht handles like a dream – she points high and she tracks true. The cockpit design focuses on easy crew movement and line handling. Hiking on the coaming is as comfortable as possible thanks to smooth outer edges and top surfaces.
The companionway access design is brilliantly simple… a drop-down door which is lockable at stormboard height, with a roof hatch that disappears neatly into a cabin-top cavity. Like all Dehler yachts, the 32 is built from handlaid balsa-cored deck and hull mouldings that are laminated together, not bolted and glued. Floor beams are also laminated to the hull and aluminium reinforcing plates are laminated into deck stress points.
You can choose the standard cast iron T-keel, the racing cast iron T-keel with extreme low-point of gravity or the shallow cruising keel. Whichever keel you choose is fixed to a solid grid which is then laminated into the bilge using stainless steel bolts.
The Dehler 32 interior has a lovely traditional feel with beautifully finished rounded wood edges. The space is light and airy thanks to four opening ports in the saloon and opening deck hatches. You can easily seat 6 in comfort around the saloon table, but it folds down to almost nothing so you have room to pack sails when you’re racing.
The well-integrated L-shaped galley includes a top-opening fridge and two-burner stove with oven. The double cabins offer heaps of space for a 32 foot yacht. The berths in the bow cabin are 1.87m long and the aft cabin 2.2m – both cabins offer heaps of storage for comfortable cruising. The starboard aft cavity is devoted to a roomy head/shower and a large storage space you can access via the head or cockpit.
