German yard Dehler present its new 38SQ model, developed out of the successful Dehler 38. The new Dehler 38SQ (project Judel&Vrolijk) has been given a new colour and light concept, a more varied interior layout, as well as powerful improvements to the rig and cockpit – all while keeping the boat as simple to use and fun.
About the deck
Fold-out footrests at the helm provide a comfortable and safe foothold when sailing to windward. The new bathing platform is lighter and easier to operate with an integrated bathing ladder that features a fold-out handrail and large steps. In addition, the Dehler 38SQ can be further upgraded with sporty designer wheels at the helm, self-tailing race winches and a removable throttle.
About the rig
The bowsprit has an integrated anchor arm and non-slip surface, making it safer to climb on and off the boat when moored bows-to, and provides an advanced tack point for gennaker or Code 0 sails. Dehler offers the square- head mainsail as an option.
The backstays for the square-head rig can be easily trimmed by winch courtesy of the flip-flop blocks. The flush- mounted traveller running the entire width of the cockpit allows 100% control of the mainsail. For the very first time, all sails are provided by Quantum, including the newly developed Tri-radial AC5 and TP6 membrane sails.
About the interior
For more natural light below deck, the hull windows have been enlarged and two additional windows cut into the coachroof. New worktop colours and a more modern seating area complete the saloon. The shower cabin has also been upgraded with a clear, high-gloss design.
The interior configuration options are also new: two versions are available for the forward section, saloon and aft. Whether a luxurious island bed, chart table or a second guest cabin, the interior design of the Dehler 38SQ is more flexible for the customer than ever before.
With the optional filter systems for fresh water and grey water, drinking water quality and sustainability can be combined. While the drinking water filter guarantees the highest quality and eliminates the need for plastic bottles on board, the grey water filter system ensures only clean waste water leaves the ship. Both filter systems even remove microplastics and can be monitored using the MyDehler Safety Cloud.
The Dehler 38SQ will celebrate its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from 8 – 13 September 2020.
