In celebration of Dehler’s 30th anniversary, the German sailboat builder will revive its 34-footer, the boat that helped the company make a name for itself.

The new boat was designed by Judel/Vrolijk.

"The new Dehler 34 is a masterpiece,” Dehler chief developer Karl Dehler said in a statement. “She was developed as a luxurious performance cruiser with an incredible amount of space, headroom and tank volume. Performance-oriented sailors can upgrade the 34 with everything — and I mean absolutely everything — that leads to more performance.

“The Carbon Cage provides 20 percent more rigidity and, thus, enables better upwind sailing performance,” he added. “If you want a quick cruiser or even a competitive regatta yacht, the Dehler 34 can be whatever you want her to be.”
