Dehlers are very rare around here, so although I have liked the look of the ones I have seen, I haven't seen many. (I really like the 50ish footer that is in our club with the cleverly designed fold away dodger...very slick!)
Just to make myself clear: I do prefer the Jeanneau SF 37 over the 2002 Bavaria 36 and maybe over the first 36.7 (for cruising). You were talking about speed and that was what I was talking about. You can also look for the Elan 37 (I think there are some in America) or the lonely Salona 37. The owner is a member and unless he wants to buy a newer Salona I don't think he wants to sell.
