New boats 2017

2016 September 1

We run down some of the new sailboats hitting the water for 2017

Dehler 34

The newly redesigned 34-footer has two distinct personalities. Available in competition style or cruising style, the keel and therefore the displacement, are much different. Options on the cruising version include teak decks, a swim platform and twin steering wheels. A carbon rig, bowsprit, deeper underbody appendages and a tiller are part of what distinguishes the competition model. Dehler’s carbon cage helps the hull maintain rigidity and provides load distribution between the mast, hull and keel.
