I love the Dehler 41DS and had seriously considered making an offer on that one at Hilton Head Island. Had it checked out by a good natured soul (thanks again Hog) but to my mind it fell down in a number of areas.

From my perspective the turbo diesel and shoal draft were the killers. Had it not been turbo I may well have forgiven the shallow draft. She also has air con which I don't need or want but that can always be ripped out.

edit...and replaced by heating.

ps - Fast...that Spectre 41DS is a good looking boat isn't it ? Expensive sucker though.
