Dehler Manufacturing - Quality at Every Stage
Windcraft's MD Peter Hrones took this great video showing the Dehler yachts manufacturing process when he visited the factory in September 2011.
The Dehler manufacturing process makes use of the very latest production technology.
The result is a strong yet light hull... and consistently high quality.
The first layer of glass is hand laminated over the gel coat. Then dry foam and glass mats are laid out.
The hull is made using vacuum infused vinylester resin with a foam core.
Using quality materials like this gives you a stronger hull for less material. Hull weight is reduced by approx 200kg.
The next stage seen here is to lay out the resin supply hoses.
Then the vacuum is applied.
Using a vacuum to infuse the resin improves working conditions and reduces emissions - resulting in a more environmentally friendly manufacturing process.
Here you can see the resin flowing into the new hull.
It takes about 35 minutes to infuse the resin.
Then the foil is removed and the perfect hull is revealed!
Using high quality materials like this means the Dehler hull is very resistant to hydrolyses (no osmosis).

After thorough testing the finished Dehler is shipped to Australia for the final commissioning process.
The Team Windcraft Service Centre based at Bayview Marina, Pittwater near Sydney are responsible for commissioning all our new yachts for sale throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Our team are supported by an experienced team of contractors who have put together over 200 Hanse Group boats... your new Dehler is in safe hands.
