Dehler 38 is Named European Boat of the Year in the Performance Cruiser Category

European Yacht of the Year

The new Dehler 38 has won one of the most coveted international prizes in the water sports sector – the title of “European Boat of the Year”. A total of five candidates competed for the title this year in the Performance Cruiser category, where a jury of experts from the major European sailing magazine decides who will win the race.

The victory is yet another chapter in the Dehler success story. After the success in France and the USA, this is the third major award given to the Dehler 38, after the new model was presented at the “boot 2013” in Düsseldorf last year. The Dehler 38 is the first model presented by Dehler in the new design. The jury was impressed by the sailing characteristics, innovation, comfort and technology.
