the flagship of the range
The new Dehler 46 embodies everything that Dehler have learnt over the last 55 years. The quality of finish and level of trim leads the fleet, whilst the Dehler DNA is evident as soon as you hoist the sails.
“Effortless speed” seem to be the go to words to describe what the 46 is like under sail. Large enough to take on the oceans of the world, whilst retaining the ability to enjoy the coastline with ease – whichever coastline that might be.
strength and solidity
Being the top of the range the 46 enjoys ALL of the features and benefits that Dehler have achieved, having built over 25,000 boats.
The hull is vacuum infused using epoxy based resins to achieve strength and low weight. The internal subframe structure is carbon to further stiffen without compromise and the keel is designed with a low centre of gravity to ensure this investment in technology and high tech materials is rewarded on the water.

home from home
Time onboard shouldn’t be a compromise in terms of comfort and the Dehler 46 does everything it can to ensure you love every minute.
From the huge island berth in the owner’s suite, through to the beautifully appointed galley, the 46 is wonderfully spacious and comfortable.
The cockpit is as well-appointed for sailing as it is for relaxing.
bay hopping and horizon hunting
Plans and dreams change but you shouldn’t need to change your choice of boat as they do. Whether your plans include crossing oceans, or they simply may do in the future, the Dehler 46 will take whatever you throw at her in her stride.
Her long legged mile eating speed lends itself to passage making and if you get there hours, or even days, ahead of expectations, all the better.
Surpassing expectations is what Dehler is all about after all.
