longer legs for longer distances

If covering longer distances is your thing, so is waterline length. The Dehler 42 is big enough to take you wherever you want to go but small enough to manage shorthanded too.

A HUGE cockpit, a large owner’s cabin at the front and seemingly endless storage – all things that make extended time onboard a joy.

She is of course just as happy turning heads on a weekend sail locally.

cruising comfort

Sail cruising is made up of so many aspects and a yacht should achieve all of them. Safe anchoring, marina manoeuvrability, comfortable accommodation, storage, protection and of course, safety. 

The Dehler 42 is a veritable “Wunderkind” achieving all of these things, seemingly with ease, whilst throwing in sailing characteristics that other yacht builders can only dream of. 

The 42 is also the first in the current range to benefit from epoxy vacuum infused hull moulding to guarantee serious strength and stiffness.

for the sheer love of sailing

If you find yourself searching for a new car and being drawn to “M”, RS” or “SVR” versions, respectively, knowing that every now and again you get to really enjoy driving for the sake of driving – the Dehler 42 is for you. 

 You set the sails, and the speed builds, you see a gust coming across the water, and you start grinning, knowing that you are about to get that buzz that you don’t get from a more run of the mill cruiser.

built for you

Each and every Dehler is built to order, and the options list is enormous, so you get to have exactly what you want. Quality is standard, but if comfort is your primary interest, your 42 can be built to maximise this aspect. 

If, however, speed and performance are your thing, you can specify a carbon mast, additional rig tuning options, a performance rudder blade and even lighter weight high interior materials. Maximise your enjoyment – your way.
