German sailboat manufacturer Dehler has announced that the prototype for the Dehler 46, its new 14-metre model, is completed and she will make her debut at the Yachting Festival in Cannes. The show runs from 9 -14 September 2014.
The concept of the new Dehler 46 was unveiled during the boat show in Düsseldorf in January this year.
The builder says the Dehler 46 shines with a clear yet emotional-sporty design, innovative technology, outstanding variability and amazing sailing characteristics. “With these qualities, Dehler is strengthening its reputation as a versatile performance cruiser with excellent characteristics for cruisers and sport-oriented sailors,” reads a statement.
A number of clever details are apparent right away when touring the yacht. Everything has been thought of to make sailing and living on board a pleasant experience. This includes the wet room concept seen in the Dehler 38 with the UniDoor in the owner’s cabin – a combination of openness, generous space and private sphere. If the door to the owner’s cabin is closed, it is a traditional wet room with lots of space, light and air. If the door is open, the access to the owners cabin is free and the shower and WC area is closed, the floor runs through seamlessly and is therefore perfectly integrated in the cabin. Washbasin and WC/shower can be used independently of each other and offer future owners the desired privacy.
The Dehler 46 is a fast cruiser in the standard model and is also perfect for a small crew and families. A wide range of options means that the boat can be expanded into a fast luxury cruiser or performance-oriented sporty regatta boat.
