    Dehler - 34 Top Nova for sale

    Sailing BoatsDehler34 Top NovaUnited Kingdom

    Remarks :

    Being a late-built version of this well regarded cruiser-racer this Dehler 34 Top Nova is a well-constructed and meticulously maintained boat that has stood the test of time.

    Specified to include the optional wheel steering, tall rig and deep keel she is an excellent balance in design.  Whilst ready to deliver an impressively sporty racing performance round the cans, she will also not tax the family intent on weekend or longer cruises due to her reassuring level of stability, generously wide side decks, and dry ride in a seaway.

    She boasts comfortable living accommodation with 6 bunks, all of which are well over 2 metres, set within a homely interior.

    ‘Troppo Bella’ is a fine example of this Top Nova model and has been supremely well cared for by her marine surveyor owner.  Set up originally for long-distance cruising, she is in good condition throughout.  Only commissioned in 2000, having been laid up for 6 years by her original owner, she is in reality a ‘newer’ boat that it might at first seem.

    Accommodation :

    6x berths in 3 cabins, including 2x double berths

    The aft cabin to port has a generous double berth, hanging locker and three further lockers. There is stowage under all berths as well as a central lee cloth. The forepeak contains a double berth with stowage under and lockers above.


    The saloon has bench settees/berths to port and starboard with lee cloths. Settee backs are removable to reveal a very wide berth. There is a centrally located table which has a single folding leaf. There is stowage behind and under both benches. The saloon has reading lights and a cabin light, shelf storage and cave lockers with sliding shutters and drinks stowage.  Standing headroom is a good 1.8m
