Re: New Flagship for Dehler: Dehler 46
a very sleek Judel / Vrolijk design:
Since Dehler passed to be controlled by Hanse, and after some design and quality issues (interior) that seem to have resolved on the 38, only good things have come from Dehler, including the price of the boats. This one is announced for 261 000 euros including German VAT and that seems amazing.
Gorgeous boat. After eliminating Germany VAT (19%) you're probably looking at about $300K / €221K FOB in the United States, with sails, electronics, options and import duty. That's simply astounding for a 46 foot boat of this quality. For comparison purposes, this is probably less than half of what the NYYC Swan 42 cost new, and still less than you can get one on the used market. No question which boat I'd prefer to own.
We deal in lead, friend.
