As one of the world leaders for racer/cruisers, Dehler Yachts starts a new chapter in its more than 50 years of history – the Dehler 30 od!

In tradition of Sprinta Sport and DB1, Dehler Yachts presents a new offshore one-design class, focusing on double-handed long-distance racing. An optimized hull design and sailplan developed by judel/vrolijk and Dehler Yachts for maximum speeds and safe navigation at windspeeds from 4 to 40 kn. Extra stability is generated by a water ballast system. The structural concept representing the latest version of the „Dehler carbon cage“ makes the boat stiff and rigid at lowest weight.

The decklayout is optimized for efficient double-handed sailing. It allows advanced interaction between skipper and crew and is a result of various ergonomic studies. A wide and complete sailset for different conditions make the vessel fast but also challenging to sail. The Dehler Yachts team was consulted by various offshore professionals to represent the latest developments in offshore racing.

The interior gives maxmimum functionality, representing modern and contemporary design. Leeboards adjustable berths and plenty of stowage for equipment, spares and tools allow highest comfort at sea in any condition and situation. With a separated toilet and a fully equipped pantry no comfort is missing.

4 – 6 berths make the boat also usable in everydays life for crusing and racing.

After two years of intensive research, design and development, the Dehler 30 od is the perfect boat for the new generation of sailors adopting the challenge of double handed offshore racing and cruising.

Design comment judel/vrolijk & Co

Our new Dehler 30 OD is the first production boat, we developed for this brand, that is designed only with speed and performance in mind. All other aspects such as interior volume, headroom and comfort have been compromised to achieve this.

Designwise it was the intention to follow current single- and double-handed raceboat design trends, but with a maior difference in allround performance. Analyzing current racing conditions, especially all over Europe, it became evident, that many of the racing is done in lighter winds, and – that good upwind performance still is neccessary to win races. Thus we sacrified the pure downwind reaching performance slightly (you get nothing for free !) and gained back allround and light wind power. By the use of water ballast, performance is increased in short handed mode, whereas in crewed mode with an intended crew of four, this additional stability feature is not in use.

In this combination, we think the boat is unique and will satisfy the single- and double hand minded racing sailers as well as the ambitions of the more conventional race course oriented crews.

Because we left some room for interior and also came up with some nice under deck design ideas, the boat might also attract for sporty weekend cruising or as a high performance daysailer. This is not to underestimate, because it helps to create fleets and keep a good resale value.
