Sail-World.com : Dehler 46, 'serious' cruising boat, debuts July
Dehler 46, 'serious' cruising boat, debuts July

'New Dehler 46'    .

Looking for a new boat? Next month the Dehler 46 will make its debut and it looks to be a serious cruising boat that might carry you across oceans in comfort and safety - yet, you can choose to take it with a 'competition keel'.

The flagship in this German boat builder’s range is aimed at knowledgeable owners who place a high priority on excellent sailing qualities.


The Dehler 46 is of a size that can still be handled by a small crew, yet large enough to offer a high degree of comfort both at sea and in harbour.

The interior has been planned to maximise space for a relative small number of people, rather than to maximise the number of bunks. There are three generously sized cabins, including a forward master one with a 1.6m wide island bed, and two comfortable heads compartments.

Styling incorporates round, harmonious shapes which are intended to create a homely atmosphere with a modern theme. The saloon has a large U-shaped sofa around the table, a large L-shaped galley and a proper navigation table.

Although the hull is unashamedly modern, with wide hull sections aft and twin wheels, Dehler has opted for a single rudder rather than twin foils.

Three keel options are available: a standard 2.25m keel with a T-bulb, a competition T-bulb keel with 2.70m draught and a L-shape short keel with 1.85m draught.

For better control over sail shape, the double-spreader rig is stepped on the keel. Clean deck lines with flush hatches and the ability to swap between cruising and racing modes ensure the boat will appeal to a variety of owners.

Overall, it is an attractive design with a wide range of possible configurations that will help owners to customise it to their own requirements.

Key features:
- Judel/Vrolijk&co optimised hull
- High end performance deck gear installed as standard
- Integrated plotter pods in coamings
- Composite bow sprit
- Carbon rig option
- Lightweight construction
- High righting moment
- Large sail area
- Life raft storage
- Adjustable footrests
- Free fall anchor windlass
- Footrests in cockpit benches
- Watertight sail locker bulkhead

Dehler has once again demonstrated their passion for creating cutting-edge performance yachts… guaranteed to turn heads and satisfy sailors looking for the whole package in a 46 footer.

The first Dehler 46 is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in July 2014.
