Builder Dehler Yachts UK Agent Inspiration Marine Tel 02380 457008 Web­site www.dehler.co.uk If you like cruis­ing fast in a com­fort­able and stylish yacht, the Dehler 42 could give you some hard de­ci­sions. If you’d like a bit more speed there’s the op­tion of a car­bon rig with the cruis­ers’ penalty of a deeper draught. Then you need to de­cide how many heads com­part­ments you want: do you mind shar­ing or would you like your own? Fi­nally how many aft cab­ins you want? Only you know how many peo­ple you ac­tu­ally sail with, as op­posed to the num­ber of you think you might sail with – if your kids bring their re­spec­tive part­ners along and all want to go sailing at the same time. I would find the loss of cock­pit stowage too much, but then again I’m not you.

You don’t need to be into, or har­bour dreams of, rac­ing to en­joy the Dehler. Yes, she can race but to cruise swiftly is some­times all one could re­ally ask for – well, that and a bit of wind of course.
