Sailingdog, that is a 1997 Dehler 33, Cruising Version. It may be the only one in the US as Dehler US did not import this model. This is the first Judel/Vrolik design for Dehler. They also built a racing version, with a deeper keel, taller rig, longer boom, and no wood interior.

I understand the boat was sailed from Finland to the East Coast, then was in Canada / Great Lakes for a while. I purchased the boat from Dehler North America in Chicago. It now enjoys Narragansett Bay.

I'll post another pic, once I figure out how to, I keep getting an error.

Dehler...GREAT BOAT!!! yes it is....

If I didn't have my boat, a Dehler I would have....F**king good, pretty and fast....good boat, man....good boat....I love them...

It beats any boat out there (of the ones people can afford if you know what I mean), built in Deutschland...real engineering Deutschland, where Porsche and Blaupunkt come....not the one where Bavarias come from...the deutschland of the newer BMW's and VW.....

I knew it was a Dehler by the way....since we first posted together a long time ago...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Alex, thank you for the confirmation! Unfortunately, Dehler is not a very popular boat here in the US. Not many are imported each year, although a new 44 will be on the Great Lakes next year.

The D33 sat on land for two years in Chicago, Jeff Papanek, of Dehler North America, the US Dealer, told me people did not appreciate the boat. Potential buyers walked on the 33 and wanted a wheel and complained about the narrow beam.

It is our first boat, and we ae enjoying her. The boat is quick and responsive, which is fun, and will get to hull speed quickly. I am getting an assy. spin. over the winter for next year. It is a bit tender though, thus, the need for "It is ok to heel video"!

TB, what day. Iit could have been, I'm at Pleasant Street, Wickford. It depends who is on board, if Mechele and me, I will reef early and keep it depowered, if another guy and me, i will keep it powered-up. I keep the 110% on the furler, so I'm good with over 12 kts of wind.

max-on - were you on the Bay Saturday, second weekend in September? I was solo-sailing all day - winds built up from 12-30 kts morning to afternoon. I could have sworn a blue and white boat like yours passed me by Gould Island - East Passage - close to noon.

TB, your memory is better than mine, did the boat have a cuben (black colored) main, no roach, main. The previous owner bought a cuben main, but it is a triangle, with no roach. I have a choice of using the original crosscut / blown-out main or the cuben, so I use the cuben. It is small, but it is light and has no stretch. The small main and 110% jib push the boat well in 12-18 kts, though, it does not seem underpowered in that range.

Max, I have a few sailing buddies with Dehlers. That's a boat I know a lot, but are all 39's and 40's.

When I was building my boat I wanted to copy the way your companion door opens, you do have the sliding door down, right??

Now...after I have been here in sailnet, and slowly learnt what the North Americans like and want, it does not surprize me no one bought it.

That is a real sailboat, its fast, well built and safe, excellent mast and boom and top notch hardware....but, a relatively new brand and not so know in the US...so what does good ol American do?? he comes to sailnet, asks a lot of questions....and buys a 1892 Valiant or a 1745 Passport, because they were well built....oh well.....what can I say....

at least that boat landed in good hands...its an excellent boat, and pretty too.

Yoiu made my day...now post the photos will you??
