    Dehler 41 DS

    The Dehler 41DS is one of those boats you will fall in love with. Excellent sailing qualities and stunning looks. Cruising World's "Boat of the Year 1998". 6 berths comprising 3 double berths in 2 cabins plus the saloon. Beautifully maintained. Owners Comments; "Dehler 41DS (Deck Saloon) won the Cruising World's "Boat of the Year" in 1998. Despite her exhilarating performance she is set up with a self-tacking jib and can be sailed single-handed from the cockpit. She can also be steered from the nav station with the autopilot. Comfortable interior and built to high-quality German standards. She was built in 1995 and launched in 1997 and has been very lightly used since."
