The 10R looks to be the 34.7 design - there is a 31.7 design based on the Figaro 1 hull and a different keel/rudder set-up. Good boat for the price range. I've sailed it a few times and although there is better out there (for cruising / racing purposes) they typically cost at least 40-60% more so while some will harp it's a Beneteau, it's only because they don't count money like some of the "other" mere mortals on this earth.

If I were in the market for a new big boat, it would have an American stamp.

blt2ski will become famous soon enough

I believe you're right in that the 10r is the 34.7, as dealers on this side of the pond felt that the calling the 34r would hurt sales of the 36.7 or some such thing, as the sizes were too close. To me, they look more like a J105 vs a 109 in how there structured etc. Close but not really close. The 34.7 more of a racer/weekender, the 36.7, a racer, than could cruise for weeks at a time too.

Too bad about about Dehler, I believe built a better boat than Elan........There snow ski's are not too bad! Hopefully they can restructure
and continue building. Local Dehler dealer is not advertising them, but still advertising the Elan.........
