I do not know from where you are getting you figures the Dehler 36 SQ and 39 SQ, in sail-away condition, including full options - sails, full raymarine electronics, electric halyard winch, cherry interior (their joinerwork is excellent, best I have see, even compared to a Swan), battery charger, dyform rigging, folding prop, furler, rigid vang, anchor rode/chain, even docklines and fenders, etc, is $225k and $292k, respectively, and I believe there is a promotion going on now, so it may be less.
MDRSAILMAN, I think you should give these a closer look, the D39SQ has a waterline length of those 'longer' boats, and if you sail one, you will instantly be impressed with the performance and the comfort above and below decks, at least I was. Give Jeff at dehler.us a call, he is a straight shooter, a sailor, and anything but a salesman, and he can give you more information and accurate numbers. Or, if you wish, contact me offline.
