Dehler 39 Anyone have experience with them?

In the never ending quest for a boat that rocks our world, the admiral and I went and looked at a couple of used boats yesterday. One of them was Dehler 39 with the 5'6" draft, which I believe is the shoal draft model. We would much prefer a deep draft for the NW cruising we want to do, but were blown away by what a fine looking boat this was. It looks like a nice compromise between racer and cruiser. We really don't have a lot of interest in racing, but do want to have something a bit speedy for those frequent light wind days on the Sound in the Summer.

I know Jeff posted positively about seeing the 39 at a show, but other than that I can't find much about the boat. If anyone has any experience sailing this boat we would love to hear about it.

Thank you,
michael
