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

Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice
What do you want to know???

Probably the best boat (of those we can afford - so bellow Swans etc..)....in the World...

1500 % better than beneteau, a real fast boat, very well built in Old Germany, not the Eastern part...

Sail's around any old shoe....inside is "zeher Deutsch"...if you like it...BEST BOAT EVER...

yoiu can afford it?? BUY IT.....its not comaparable with Beneteau/JEanneau/Catalina/Hunter/Dufour, etc...and defenately 180deg away from the old shoes..not saying names here..but you should know what I call the old shoes..

It's up there with Halberg and Moddy...but faster....

Points like a whore after a rich customer, built strong, sails downwind like a charm...almost as fast as an IMS...

So Alex,

Why say how you really feel about said boat!

Micheal,

Are you looking at the sexy red one that SailNW has, or the one I have not seen at Elliot bay?

Marty

Hi Marty, We are looking at the one at Elliot Bay. The one at Sail NW is way out of our price range.

It looks like a rocket, nicely detailed down below, not luxury quality but very nice. The Admiral loves it. We are out of Seattle for a few days, so will probably go see it again next week when we get back, and take a more critical look at systems and equipment.

Alex, have you aboard one ? Which keel model if so?

Thanks
michael

llissenden,

With two posts, you can not post some links, nor can one send a PM because of the less 10 posts. BUT, you could post an email this way, which i safer than the actual posing of one
example
blt2ski at hotmail dot com

Is it the 39SQ? http://www.dehler.com/dehlers.php?id=37
That's a great boat, wish I could afford one IMHO they're better than HR and Moody because they sail better.

Are the 36s in the same class as the 39? Could an experienced sailor take the 36 out by himself for a day or two?

Thanks,
Brad

I have own a dehler 39 for 11 year

I have had some boat before but I can realy say that this boat is one of the top sailing boat create the last decay.
I started one project 1999 and my goal was winning Microsoft Gotland Around. I search for a sailingboat who has the ability to be one of the best in racing in thes competition. I chose Dehler 39 in a field of X boat, First, Arcona, J-boats, Grand Solei, and Dehler. The choised was wery good.
We von Lidingö around and was 2:nd in gotland around. And our place was top 3 in the mayor of the race this year.
