Original poster here. We bought the D39 27 months ago and love it. It is quick and has great cruising interior. Our D39 is the predecessor to the SQ , very similar. We really like the aft sheeting of of main sheet, and big wheel. We like other D39 owners wish our traveler was longer. Even with the shoal draft keel this boat points very high. It is easy to trim close hauled, with the stock 104 headsail, and locks into the groove easily. We sail faster than the theoretical hull speed on a regular basis even with well used sails. With the gennaker on the sprit, the boat is a missle with any wind at all.

cheers

Rock,

That one looks a lot like the one Micheal bought IIRC, and based on what I think is his boat a few weekends ago.

That shoal draft will make it work better on the east coast, but as Micheal said earlier, here in Puget SOund, 7-8' of draft on a boat is not a big deal.

Hey Marty,

Frankly I didn't know about Dehler until I read this post. Did some search and i like what I read. She is at the high side what I plan to pay, but if for the right boat; I don't mind.

I have been considering a 1987 HR352. She is well maintained but her teak deck worries me. Cursing in Caribbean with a teak deck may a pain. D39 seems to be a good alternative and much newer than 87.

Hope some of you know more about Dehler and shed more light on this. Thanks.

Unfortunately Dehlers are a very rare breed in Australia but for me they are one beautiful boat. I've only ever been on board a few but I've loved what I've seen. Its not going to happen but I'd be a happy chappy to own one.

Rock,

You will probably find generally speaking, a dehler to be nicer than a Jeanneau since that seems to be what you have been sailing. Price point is also a bit higher when comparing equal sized boats. speed wise.....I'd give a slight edge to dehler, unless you fins say an older SF35 or 37, ie the taller mast, deeper keel version of the SO you have been sailing. Then the Jeanneau may have a slight edge.

"IF" this one you linked is a floor plan you like, like other parts about it. buy it, you will NOT go wrong with this boat brand. They do not sell as many over on this side of the pond. But they are a step or two up from a Jeanneau. BUT, we are not talking major up grade, maybe chevy vs an olds, ferd vs lincon type thing.

Marty

The Dehler 39 was one of the boats that have been more time in production, at least in Europe were the live of a model rarely goes beyond 5 years. That was only possible because the boat was really very good. And it is still a fast boat even at Top level sailing. On the last year world ORCi championship one of the contenders was a Dehler 39:

YouTube - ‪Team Redan - ORCi Worlds 2010 - downwind second helmsman Gerard.MOV‬‏

They have finished 5th in the beta division. Not bad for such an "old" hull. We are not talking about club racing but about top racing

And on the offshore long race, raced with stormy weather, on real time, on their division they were only beaten by the Salona 37 and the Finnflyer 36 both very fast boats.

Results: Flensburger Segel-Club

A hell of a boat. Only now Dehler is presenting a new 40 (41) a boat that I hope is going to be as good as the "old" 39. You can have a look at it here:

Interesting Sailboats

Regards

Paulo

Hey Paulo, who designed the D39 ? I'm thinking Judel/Vrolijk, surely its not one of the Dehler Van de Stadts.
