    Dehler - 41DS

    Dehler are well known for building strong fast cruisers, and the Dehler 41 DS combines these qualities with a spacious, airy interior. The raised deck saloon allows you to sit at the table and watch the world go by whether sailing or moored up. The overall spec level is impressive, and a high level of TLC has been lavished upon her by the Owner. This Dehler 41DS is well worth viewing

    Yaching World test Summary

    The Dehler 41DS featured prominently in a Yachting World rally of ten 40ft fast cruisers & was judged first equal with the Starlight 39 & described as follows.

    "The 41DS is a boat full of novel ideas for problems I didn't think I had! There has been a great deal of lateral thinking in the design of this boat & it would take time to appreciate its advantages fully."

    The concluding summary states

    "The most expensive in the group, but the cost is justified. The objective of producing a quick, comfortable cruising yacht is precisely & cleverly achieved. This would be obvious to anyone, not only the appreciative engineer or experienced yachtsman.

    The provision of sophisticated gear & equipment properly designed, engineered & built does not come cheap, but for those who can appreciate it, proves worthwhile.
