Dehler 46 Details

The Dehler 46 is the flagship model from the renowned luxury sailing yacht builder and it truly has the perfect blend of speed, performance, and living spaces. The exterior lines are sporty and exciting, unmistakably Dehler. The design is unique, as are all of the creations of Judel/vrolijk & Company, with clear lines and an aggressive personality. The Dehler 46 is simply a masterpiece on the water.

With over 25,000 yachts delivered by Dehler since 1963, the experience by the designers and craftsmen is unmatched anywhere in the world. For more than 50 years, Dehler has continuously been building and perfecting their yachts, turning them into one of the leading sailboat manufacturers in the industry. All of the knowledge gained from the hours of working, failing, re-starting, and finally completing the perfect sailing vessel are visibly present in every boat.

The Dehler 46 boasts several accolades including begin nominated for the 2015 European Yacht of the Year Award in its class as well as the 2016 SAIL Magazine Best Boats nominee.

Step one foot on the Dehler 46 and you can immediately tell its special. The luxury is hidden in the conveniences and qualities of the small details on board. Here are few of the characteristics that make the 46 exceptional:

  • Maximized sail area and light-weight construction to increase speed
  • Full sandwich hull with durable and reliable materials
  • Hand-laid teak deck with vacuum-bonded wood
  • Outstanding safety features including the Dehler Carbon Cage
  • Easy sailing functionality
  • Best re-sale value in its class

The exterior deck of the 46 is clear and uncluttered, making for a striking look that's appealing to the eye. Dehler draws from the Hanse Group easy sailing concepts which make the 46 easy to operate, even with a small crew. The cockpit is large enough to fit your crew, but is also elegantly designed. The teak flooring is rich looking and there is a transom gate that folds down to unveil a teak-covered bathing platform. Halyards have been hidden which helps the clean-cut design.

The hull itself is quite substantial as its extremely durable, yet light-weight, thanks to the vacuum infusion technology that Dehler uses. The Dehler 46 hull is made of water-resistant vinylester resin, which makes it 20% more rigid than other conventional designs. Additionally, a steep stem extends the waterline. This, combined with the lighter weight of the hull, means greater speed and more living space on board. The mast on the 46 is also longer, stiffer, and lighter than the normal aluminum mast thanks to the rig made of high-tech carbon. This allows the sail area to be larger which helps improve performance while at sail.

The interior of the Dehler 46 is calming and inviting. With elegant wood choices and a light color palette, the lower deck living area makes you feel like you're at home. The design is modern with a cozy atmosphere thanks to the flowing shapes and efficient use of space. The galley is well-equipped to prepare gourmet meals for all your guests on board with high-end appliances and uniquely shaped cabinets that help with organization. The salon table has seating for five and can lower down to convert into a lounge.

The standard layout of the 46 includes a master cabin with an island double berth and head. There is also a spacious aft cabin on the starboard side and a large storage area on the port side which can be used as a sail locker. Owners do have the option to have a second aft cabin in this storage area. All upholstery and fabrics can be customized in color to suit your taste.
