Dehler 34 Opportunity

Hot Little Performance Cruiser

Ric Hawkins knows his racing and he’s so excited about this new model from Dehler!  He has put together this race ready package on hull number 51 which will be arriving in Australia in June.

The first one has just arrived in Melbourne.

Dehler 34 # 51 simply looks fast, the black wheels and competition cove lines create an added edginess. You can’t really tell but that teak in the cockpit is actually synthetic – the looks without the maintenance. The side decks are in a light grey anti slip – ideal for that agile race crew of yours.

Dehler 34 with Competition Spec

Equipped with the Dehler Competition Package, this boat has the competition shaped rudder teamed with six Lewmar Race Plus winches – all positioned perfectly for your crew. The keel is L Shape and 1.95m.

Ric has chosen the taller alloy mast which at 17.02m gives a sail area of 71.00m sq. The tapered selden mast comes with rod rigging  and  a solid boom vang – teamed with the  competition sail plan you get  the stiffness preferred by racers. Performance here we come!

Performance Rig

The Dehler’s all come with FCL triradial cut performance sails for both the Genoa and main. No upgrades needed here. The main has Selden mast sliders and the Genoa includes barber haulers with a low friction ring.

This Dehler 34 is designed and optioned for sailors who want to be competitive in twilights but also to heat it up in a Saturday club race.  And yet – and this is the key – you want a boat that the family will actually want to come sailing with you at weekends. Fast and furious sport and fun at leisure – yep you can have the best of both worlds!

Fast Racing & Comfortable Cruising

This is where the Dehler 34 really stands out  – a fast racer and yet a comfortable cruiser

This is exactly why, Ric reckons, the bigger sister – the Dehler 46 has hit a chord with experienced sailors. Sailors who no longer want to put up with the discomforts of a dedicated race boat but want to sail fast. Some 46 owners are not doing any racing at all but are utterly content feeling the speed under the helm as they go for a spin on the harbour with a big grin on their face.

Ready for Racing in 2017

We haven’t spoken about the Dehler interior yet. D34 # 51 has a beautiful teak finish showing off the prestige quality craftsmanship that’s part of this brand. You will be impressed…

So, back to your race plans…

This factory boat order is ready! You just need to add your choice of kite when it arrives. Talk to Ric,  as our sailing technician at Windcraft he’ll advise on the best set up for your race programme.
