Dehler 30 One Design

Jan 19, 2021

The Dehler 30 one design has won two awards in SAIL magazine’s Best Boats 2021 Awards. The racer-cruiser won over the jury of experts in both the “Performance Boat 30ft or Less” category, and in “Systems”, where the Dehler Stealth Drive was honored as the best technical innovation.

Recognition in North America comes after the Dehler 30 one design was named European Yacht of the Year 2020. The American judges were impressed by the racer-cruiser’s performance and ease of handling – even at high speeds. The winning Dehler Stealth Drive, which allows the use of a powerful fixed propeller that can be quickly folded up and integrated into the hull when not in use, comes as a standard feature on the Dehler 30 one design.

Adam Cort, Editor of SAIL magazine: “The jury unanimously voted the boat the winner in the category “Performance Boats 30ft or Less”. Besides the design, the decisive factor was the spectacular test sail on the Chesapeake Bay, which was definitely one of the best runs of recent years in the Best Boats Awards. The Dehler is an incredibly exciting sail, but always easy to control. Besides the fun factor, this keeps the average speed consistently high, which is where success in long-distance racing lies.”

Douglas Brophy, Sales Manager Dehler in North America: “It is great for us to be recognized by the sailing experts. The Dehler 30 od is designed for the sailing purist, not just for short-handed offshore racing. As the reward for our Dehler Stealth Drive shows, we are once again leading the industry in system innovation.“
