    Default Dehler 30 OD

    Looks like an amazing boat.

    30 feet long, 2.5 tonnes, 200 l water ballast tanks each side, twin rudders, bowsprit.

    Can't wait to sail it ...

    Wow!

    That's a bit more like it!
    You never know, I might be right!

    A buddy of mine just told me he wants to buy one when they are available. Hopefully we can do Gotland Rund next year ...

    That's a great race - two nights at sea and no need to use a torch.

    Looks amazingly uncomfortable. Where do I store my Sauvignon Blanc?
    Graham. "Scala" now sold. Boatless.

    Downwind at 11+ in 20 knots is pretty decent... By the looks of the polars it's clearly supposed to be breaking out onto the plane about then.

    Can't wait to see the 35 foot version...

    It would be good to see an alternative to the Sunfast 3600 at production yard prices...

    Any idea how much? Shall I buy a Lottery ticket tonight?
    If I'd wanted to live in a Banana Republic I'd have gone to South America.

    Looks special.

    However, when you're doing a heavy weather spinnaker run with the crew all clustered behind the helmsman to attempt to avoid a re-enactment of the full speed dive sequence from Das Boot I'm not sure how well a reference to the wave piercing bow would go down.

    Although "full crew" on this boat is intended to be 2.

    I think the "wave piercing" means exactly that - it is intended to drive through the wave rather then stick into it and slow down.
