Objektiva kommentarer från Ralf Tapken, Head of Sales Hanse Group… men jag vet att det finns många Dehlerfantaster där ute.
The first touch to the wheel gave a perfect feel – the height was perfect – even for me with 1.9 m – turning the wheels surprisingly nearly no resistant is to feel – and 1 turn hard to hard promise a very direct steering.
Saling out on a 10 – 12 knot breeze in the Greifswald Bodden was an important part – does everything fit?
Yes – is did. The V-shaped backstay left for my size enough room to move comfortable without touching the backstay, steering in stand or sitting position is very relaxing and the yacht steers like a sportscar – direct – no resistance – smooth – just perfect.
The new arrangement of the traveller on the cockpit floor makes to cockpit so much bigger – free to walk from companionway right through the stern – great! The traveler was also under pressure gliding smooth from side to side and easy to control. The Main winches made it very easy to control the trim of the sail without having the mainsheet running all the way on the deck.
