PCP will become famous soon enough
Dehler 38

The boat is beautiful but the weight

A Salona 38 has about the same ballast but weights 500kg less on the basic version. The cruiser version from Salona is 100kg lighter than their racing one. The hulls don't seem to be much different, having the Dehler more beam (3.75 to 3.62m). Also regarding sail area, the cruising version of the Salona has more area than the racing version of the Dehler (88.4 to 82.4m2).

I don't know how much the Salona 38 will weight in the racing version (IBC) but I know that the difference in the 41ft is of about 650kg.

Maybe the Dehler race version will do well on compensated time

But for a cruiser that is not much important even if I hate to be over sailed by another boat

The interior seems to be a huge improvement over the Dehler 41.

That is a boat to follow. Thanks for having posted it.
