Dehler 32 – Small but Stylish
After the takeover by the mighty Hanse Group, the management of Dehler Yachts decided to continue their production of smaller yachts and keep the leading role in this segment of the market. The message of such decision was sent in 2010, presenting Dehler 32 on Düsseldorf Boot.
It is a typical cruiser in range up to 10 m of LOA, measuring 9.80 m; with a maximum beam of 3.25 m. Along with 4,310 kg of displacement and 1,500 kg ballast, this yacht is powered by total sail surface of 61 m²; divided between 33 m² of the mainsail and 28 m² of the genoa. Optionally, Dehler 32 could be equipped with a 74m² gennaker and 89 m² spinnaker.
Deck layout was designed by renowned Judel/Vrolijk studio which created a very simple arrangement of commands and sailing gear, leaving as much space as possible to passengers’ comfort. The large single steering wheel visually divides cockpit from the open stern. The interior is designed in a minimalistic manner but there is all that needs to provide relaxed and comfortable cruise. Two double bedrooms with one bathroom along with rather a lot of storage space would be more than enough for a small family or two couples.
Dehler 32 is powered by 18 HP Volvo engine while diesel tank holds as much as 65 l. The water tank has a capacity of 100 l which does not seem very generous, but with a bit of water consumption discipline, this tiny obstacle could be solved. Three draft options make Dehler 32 perfect not only for ocean cruising but for lake sailing as well. The keel is available with drafts amounting to 1.98 m, 1.74 m and 1.43 m.
Due to its simplicity of handling and high level of sailing performances along with as much comfort as you can get on a small yacht, Dehler 32 has found its admirers among both private owners and charterers.
I wish you a calm sea, a fine wind and a strong mast!
