Dehler 38 SQ

Dehler 38 SQ

Every line conveys perfection. The coachroof sweeps aerodynamically above the deck, with an additional saloon window on each side. An eye catcher is also the bathing platform: with the flush-mounted bathing ladder, the ergonomic steps and the handrail, it confidently combines aesthetics with comfort.

The stunning new Dehler 38SQ is lighter, faster and even more comfortable than it’s award-winning predecessor. With a focus on lighter weight, a taller rig and cutting edge technology upgrades, the yacht has exhilirating sailing characteristics and modern design. This new boat 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 as fun as ever.

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 for comfortable bathing fun. In addition, the 38SQ can be further upgraded with sporty designer wheels at the helm, self-tailing race winches and a removable throttle.

The bowsprit has an integrated anchor arm and non-slip surface, making it safer to climb on and off the boat when moored bow-to, and provides an advanced tack point for gennaker or Code 0 sails. Dehler offers a square-head mainsail as an option. With its greater efficiency, better trim and less heeling moment, this pro sail is also ideal for cruising. 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 for greater control of the mainsail.

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 sense of greater space in the saloon. The shower cabin has also been upgraded with a clear, high-gloss design that is easy to clean and maintain. 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. What unites all cabins and the saloon is the much brighter atmosphere.

With the optional filter systems for freshwater and greywater, 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 greywater filter system ensures only clean wastewater leaves the ship. Both filter systems even remove microplastics and can be monitored using the MyDehler Safety Cloud.
