Dehler 34 wins magazine honor

The new Dehler 34 was selected as 2017 boat of the year by Cruising World magazine.

The new Dehler 34 was selected as 2017 boat of the year by Cruising World magazine, beating out the Alerion Sport 30, Elan E4 and J/112E.

After all the nominated performance cruisers were tested, the head of the jury said: "I think in terms of the category, trying to find a nice crossover between cruising accommodations and a boat that you can take sailing, it just hit its mark,” the company said in a statement.

The company said the team around Karl Dehler can be proud of their new development.

“The new Dehler 34 was designed according to the principles of the old Dehler 34 from the ’80s, the world's first performance cruiser,” Dehler said in a statement.

“Together with Judel/Vrolijk & Co., we have developed a yacht which sails fast, agile and is simply fun. At the same time we have designed an elegant and friendly interior to enjoy the highest comfort on long journeys.”

The new Dehler 34 will be exhibited, together with the Dehler 38, 42 and 46, at the Jan. 21-29 boot Düsseldorf in Germany.
