NEW YACHTS - Dehler 41
Australia’s Team Windcraft says if you’re looking to win a few regattas next season, you might want take a look at the new Dehler 41.
It’s the first Dehler yacht to be fully developed under the Hanse Group designers Judel/Vrolijk, which penned the America's Cup winner Alinghi'
“So they know a thing or two about making yachts sail fast,” says Windcraft. “Their brief with the Dehler 41 is to produce a performance racing yacht — competitive under the ORC and IRC rules — but also with good all round cruising qualities.”
Windcraft, Dehler importers for Australia and NZ said it is delighted with the way this yacht is shaping up prior to her launch in May this year.
“The designers have come up with a fantastic hull,” explained the Sydney-Melbourne dealership. “The contemporary stern ensures maximum waterline length, when she is fully powered-up. This, combined with good IRC rating measurements, will have you leading the pack.”
Windcraft said among other design features is a long, deep T-bulb keel (with all the weight at the bottom) to provide a great righting moment that allows the yacht to carry a large sail area.
“The optional carbon rig, keel and interior configurations allow you to choose how competitive you would like to be,” said Windcraft. “The trademark Dehler quality finish and interior will give you and your guests comfort onboard, and ensure the highest possible re-sale value.”
Windcraft says that being part of the Hanse Group has clear advantages and more buying power means the new Dehler 41 can maintain traditional quality at a competitive price. The current strength of the Aussie dollar means the dealership can offer the new Dehler 41 at a starting price of $326,000.
