Dehler Yachts honored at enthusiast conference

KA20080330D284.CR2

Dehler Yachts took part in a Modern Classics meet-up of GFK-Yachten, an association for enthusiasts of GRP yachts, that was held Sept. 6-8 in Germany.

There were about 51 yachts with an average age of 34 years at the event, eight of them Dehlers. The Dehler tent displayed an original example of the Winnetou sailing dinghy — the builder’s first boat, dating from 1963. Karl Dehler, the son of the company’s founder, was on hand to provide a look into Dehler’s history.

Dehler received three awards at the event. A Varianta 65 from 1974, the Östersjön, owned by Franziska Tempus, was awarded the prize for oldest participating Dehler yacht. A Delanta 78 LS from 1978, the Pinto, owned by Boris Beckmann, was the Dehler boat in the best preserved original condition. And Axel Elvegaard was awarded the prize for the best care of his Imagine, an Optima 92 that was built in 1979.
