Looking for something innovative in yacht design and style?

The Dehler 38 is a cool mixture of art deco meets modernism. The creative design from Judel/Vroliijk showcases the next generation of Dehler yachts perfectly.

Whether you’re an ambitious racer, want comfortable cruising or you’re entertaining family and friends, the Dehler 38 will meet your needs.

You can easily manage short-handed with its clean deck design, twin steering wheel system, Harken deck gear and 6 winches..

The Dehler is a well-balanced, lightweight stable yacht making it responsive in ways experienced sailors will appreciate.

A dream at the helm and also on the race course

Sailing! Let yourself be moved along by the wind, sometimes gliding, sometimes facing a storm. Once you are floating with the wind, at other times fighting against the elements.
Sailing close to the wind, drunk with speed, or gently carried over a glittering lake. Sailing! in all its shapes and colours, with reason and with feeling. Sailing!

The Dehler 38 can take you to these places….
